Beach Holidays in India
For a relaxing getaway that truly transports you, a beach holiday in India offers romantic hideaways, undiscovered coves, and more than 7,500 kilometres of coastline along the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean.
White sands stretch out into the distance on the fabled shores of Goa in western India, attracting visitors keen to do beachside yoga, enjoy an Ayurvedic massage in a thatched beachfront studio, or simply nap away the heat of the day under and umbrella. The waters are clear and calm, and the atmosphere is one of relaxation and spirituality—at least until the sun goes down.
Escape to the beaches of southern India
Marari Beach in Kerala offers a quiet resting retreat, and for an even greater sense of solitude, you can visit Varkala Beach in Kerala’s north. If you’re in Tamil Nadu, we recommend Mahabalipuram, where the Shore Temple pierces the horizon line to the south. Overlooking the Bay of Bengal, the temple is an icon of the landscape, reminding visitors that this is no casual beach resort destination—there is culture and history here, as well.
The Andaman Islands comprise a 572-island archipelago, where you can lose yourself in a lush tropical landscape and unspoiled snow-white beaches. If you want to snorkel or dive in this region, you’re sure to discover rich life in these quiet expanses of ocean.
