Chale Island is a small romantic island situated about 600 meters from the mainland and 10 km south of Diani Beach, 50 km south of Mombasa and 70 km from the border of Tanzania. The term "Chale" refers to the name of an old warrior of the Digo tribe who is buried on the island. On certain days of the year his descendants still come to celebrate religious rituals.

Measuring 1,2 km long and 0,8 km wide with north-south orientation, Chale Island is divided into two parts: the hotel, main beach and immediate surrounds and the forest and wildlife (reserve). Wildlife abounds in abundance throughout the island, troops of monkeys and baboons, bush baby crying in the night, many species of birdlife, small antelope, butterflies, to name a few...
