The Association was founded in 1983, originally called Likoni & South Mainland Residents Association. It worked successfully out of Shelley Beach then sadly came to a standstill until it was decided to bring the Association to Diani and resume all its efforts.

SCRA is a non-political, non-profit making, non-denominational and non-racial welfare association which seeks to access to public services and our objectives are to advance and promote the interests of residents and owners of property on the south coast from Likoni to Lunga Lunga.  In particular, we provide an avenue for representing your interests to and liaising with all Government of Kenya Ministries, Kwale & Msambweni District Offices and also Civic Society. 


The first Diani Chairman was Mr Ken Martin. The Association's name was then changed to South Coast Residents’ Association

SCRA Committee
