At Diani Beach in Kenya you don’t have to break the bank for a piece of paradise.

Oceanfront homes cost between $570,000 to $780,000 per acre and most are developed with amenities included as part of the cost, according to Mansion Global. If an apartment is more your style, they’re going for around $168,000 up to about $270,000.

The closest major city to the 100,000-person beach town is the city of Mombasa; visitors arrive at Diani Beach visa a hour-long flight or a new train line that takes about 4.5 hours.

Some of the celebrities who’ve frequented the town include model Naomi Campbell, former Renault Formula One boss Flavio Briatore, Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson, and Puma CEO Jochen Zeitz. [Mansion Global]Erin Hudson
