Forty Thieves (Diani)
A coastal institution since the 1970s, this dive bar along the Diani Beach strip is a long-time hangout for both locals and out-of-towners.
A cold Tusker on the terrace is the standard activity by daylight. After dark the action shifts to a dance floor, where celebrity DJs and live bands keep the groove going until well after midnight.
While ice-cold suds is the main attraction, the bar also serves "tiki" cocktails and straight up or on-the-rocks well drinks.
Forty Thieves hosts a number of special events during the year including a waterfront music festival and beach touch rugby tournament.
