Che Shale
The final mile or so of the drive from Malindi to Che Shale, a laid-back beachfront hotel, takes guests through rich, lush vegetation, past swaying palm trees, and over hundreds of coconut husks. The drive sets the scene nicely for this most chilled of getaway locations. Che Shale itself is simple and stylish—guests sleep in large thatched bandas tucked away down sandy paths and eat in the big open-plan bar/restaurant with sand between their toes. There are hidden nooks up wooden ladders to read or snooze in, and lounge spots covered with scattered cushions to stretch out on in the shade. Down on the beach, the sand is deep golden and glitters in the sun. This being the Indian Ocean, the water is warm, azure blue, and filled with tropical creatures worth snorkeling around to see. As it’s set on a bay, this stretch of coastline also gets some great waves, and kitesurfing is available—with lessons on offer from the Che Shale team. There’s also an on-site boutique shop filled with swimwear, beach bags, straw hats, and more.
