Around Athi

Hollant Beach

Hollant Beach is a beautiful, serene and secluded beach which is highly recommended to our guests and is just a very short drive from us. To discover this hidden gem of a beach, take right out of Athi Resorts till you reach a fork in the road: one goes ahead towards Vasco city and then drops with a declining road. The drive from here to Hollant beach is one densely covered with a canopy of coconut trees.

You will spot a carpet of green on both sides sprinkled with wild blossoming plants & flowers. Try to find the touch-me-not plants by the road side. Almost every single day there are monkeys jumping on tree branches, amazing birds to spot & see and beautiful butterflies too.
