This part of the world has the type of beaches that dreams are made of. The Maldives offers the classic overwater villa and island hideaway experience, the Seychelles’ rustic coastlines and lagoons are untouched and secluded, while in Sri Lanka and Mauritius you can explore the islands before retreating to the powdery beaches with a cocktail or two.
The pace is slow on an Indian Ocean beach holiday, as you gaze out at the shimmering sea gently lapping the shore. You may be looking for a luxury all inclusive break, plenty of diving opportunities or a romantic, private spa holiday — anything you want is possible here.
Holidays in the Far East offer the best of both worlds: miles of soft, sandy beaches and mouth-watering food. The islands and coastlines of Thailand contain some of the most memorable beaches in the world, from the peace and quiet of Koh Lanta to party island Koh Phangan. Add the picture-perfect coves of the Philippines and Bali’s spiritual ambience and you can create your perfect beach holiday in the Far East.
Thailand and Bali are also excellent locations for scuba diving and snorkelling. Bali’s east coast and Koh Tao are great areas for beginners to learn, while there are stronger currents and drift dives to enjoy at the likes of Nusa Penida in the south of Bali.
Africa may be best known for safari and wildlife experiences, but there’s no better way to relax after the thrill of the chase than on the glorious Indian Ocean coastline. The beaches in the east of Africa are not as well known, which means they’re often more peaceful and untamed.
Diani Beach in Kenya is a 19-mile stretch of coast, famous for coral reefs, colobus monkeys and the nearby Shimba Hills National Reserve. Stay here after spotting the Big Five in Kenya’s game reserves, or if your safari takes you to Tanzania and the Serengeti instead, then Zanzibar’s natural beaches are the perfect antidote.
Unwind to the sound of reggae beats and steel drums on the beaches of the Caribbean. It’s so easy to relax here, with beaches straight out of fiction, locals who are beyond laid-back and spectacular scenery to explore on many of the islands.
Pick your beach wisely in Antigua — there are many to choose from, including rustic Pigeon Point and the pink sands of sister island Barbuda. Snorkel in the coral waters off the coast of Barbados, soak up the sun in St Lucia as you gaze up at the majestic Pitons, or find a quiet spot along Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica.
USA Beach breaks are a perfect standalone holiday, or as an add-on to a city break or self-drive. Hawaii’s four islands each offer something different. The Na Pali Coast in Kauai is one of the most beautiful areas around, while Hawaii Island’s black sands add a different twist to beach paradise. Enjoy island-hopping in Hawaii to see as many beaches as possible.
Florida has over 800 miles of spectacular beach. Add California’s beaches, with a unique mix of boutiques and surfing hotspots, and you have more options than you could even dream of.
On a beach holiday, you want to be as close to the sea as physically possible. Whether your perfect spot is from the deck of a beachfront villa in the Maldives or the Philippines, or stepping straight out on to the sand on the islands of Thailand, we have just the right beachfront for your needs.
Privacy can be hard to find, but don’t worry — we’ve got you covered. We have hotels in the Far East, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean that are set on their own secluded beach, so you don’t have to be disturbed when you’re soaking up the rays. The finest example is the Maldives. With resorts set on their own private island there’s no need to share that stunning white sand with anyone not staying on the island.
There’s nothing more romantic than saying your vows on the beach in a foreign land, under the heat of the tropical sun. Apart from, perhaps, spending a couple of weeks alone with your other half being waited on in all inclusive comfort. Both of these can be arranged; just tell us where you want to go and we’ll do the rest.
If you’re planning the wedding of your dreams on the beaches of Mauritius or the Far East, our dedicated weddings team will make sure that everything goes to plan on your big day.
Lazy days spent on a hammock in the sun tend to only be disturbed by sessions in the pool and the draw of delicious food and drink. Many of our beach resorts offer excellent all inclusive packages — from food and drink, to excursions and activities — to make sure you have everything you need during your stay.
Different levels of all inclusive are available, so browse the website or speak to our experts to find your perfect all inclusive beach holiday.
