Indian Ocean Beach holidays

Beach holidays in the Indian Ocean

Introduction

The Indian Ocean islands are exclusive, expensive places to take a luxury beach holiday, often in conjunction with a honeymoon or particularly special escape. Holidays in the Maldives, Mauritius holidays, trips to the Seychelles and holidays in Sri Lanka usually focus on the beach and the amenities that can be found there and you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing white sand stretches. The best beaches in the Indian Ocean include:

  • Nalaguraidhoo Island in the Maldives has a powder soft sand beach encircling it and a nearby reef ideal for diving.
  • Ile Aux Cerfs in Mauritius is a small island with gorgeous sugar-white beaches and in-shore reefs alive with marine life.
  • Anse Source d'Argent in the Seychelles curls around the island of La Digue, with the pink sands backed by giant boulders.
  • Unawatuna in Sri Lanka inspired the Hindu epic Ramayana and its palm-fringed shore remains utterly spectacular.

These are just a handful of the options available though. Additionally, tailor-make your beach holiday in the Indian Ocean by adding a cruise or excursion to create a truly sensational escape; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
