Africa Beach holidays

Introduction

Africa boasts some brilliant beaches and there are spectacular swathes of sand all over the continent. Kenya beach holidays and Zanzibar holidays are especially popular but there are world-class alternatives all over Africa. The continent's best beaches include the following:

  • Santa Monica beach, Boa Vista, Cape Verde is the best bay on a 35 mile long stretch of white sand and emerald-green water.
  • Laguna, Bay of Dahab, Egypt is a natural Red Sea lagoon north of Sharm el-Sheikh that has a bohemian feel and access to the desert and Sinai mountains.
  • Lamu beach, Kenya is a breathtaking eight-mile crescent backed by dunes and lapped by the Indian Ocean.
  • Ile Aux Nattes, Madagascar is a true escape for people who like their beaches deserted.
  • Likoma Island, Malawi is a tranquil idyll in the giant freshwater lake that makes up much of the country.
  • Oualida, Morocco is a natural lagoon that provides far more shelter than the beaches at wind-whipped Essaouira.
  • Quirimbas National Park, Mozambique is nestled amongst palm groves and lapped by the Indian Ocean.
  • Sodwana Bay, South Africa is a marine reserve fringed by dense coastal forest where you can watch whales, dolphins and also see turtles laying eggs.
  • Mnemba Island, Tanzania is tiny but punches above its weight in terms of barefoot luxury.
  • Nungwi, Zanzibar is the most beautiful expanse on the island, with blindingly white sand and water so blue it appears almost translucent.

These are just a handful of the options available though. Additionally, tailor-make your beach holiday and consider combining a safari and beach holiday or adding a spectacular city break to create a truly sensational escape; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
