Many of our specialists have their own favourites. Perhaps Búzios in Brazil, the barely-touched islands of Con Dao in Vietnam, a boutique bolthole in the Mediterranean, the classic seascapes of America’s Cape Cod or the desert-backed beaches of Oman in Arabia. They’re also ideally placed to advise you on how best to combine a beach break with something else, be it a city stop, safari or cultural element.
We’re often able to negotiate savings and additional benefits at beachfront hotels, like complimentary upgrades or extra nights for free. Ask your specialist about our latest offers.
