A beach is a wonderful place where people seek out relaxation. Journey in Style knows that being on white sandy shores where turquoise waves ebb and flow is the epitome of tranquillity. We bring you beaches in Africa that promise beautiful scenery, spectacular spaces and the opportunity to stare out at the azure horizon from a day bed under tall coconut palm trees.
Take the Maldives for starters – this magnificent archipelago boasts more than 1 000 coral islands which are best viewed from the air in a sea plane. When you land, choose your sublime luxury resort on one of these atolls and seek out the beach away from the madding crowds – white sands, cocktails and silence.
Journey in Style to Mauritius, island of pretty beaches and unrivalled shoreline hotels. Book into 5-star luxury and begin a beach holiday you will never forget. Some of the best beaches on this large island start at the charming capital of Port Louis – choose the less developed southern coast for exclusive privacy and a huge choice of water sports.
Not far from Mauritius lies the smaller isle of Reunion where you must laze under tall palm trees and watch the sun move across the horizon. Surf a bit, snorkel a lot and discover a deep sea diving world that takes the cake in this part of Africa. From beach to ocean swimming, you cannot separate the two in Reunion – enjoy time alone as you deepen your tan.
Not every traveller realises that Mozambique offers some of the best beaches in East Africa, stretching along some 2 000km of premium Indian Ocean coastline. Journey in Style will find you the perfect location to suit your kind of holiday when you book with us. Spend lazy days on pristine white beaches, absorbing both sun and breath-taking ocean horizons. The popular Bazaruto Archipelago is loved for its beach horse rides and fishing expeditions while the Quirimbas Archipelago up north is a remote hideaway for solitude on tiny private beaches and forgotten historical tales.
As if that is not enough, the tiny island of Mahe in the fantastical Seychelles is the place to be for your stylish journey into Africa. A true Robinson Crusoe experience it is to discover such sugar white beaches that they seem unreal. Throw off your shoes for your entire beach escape as you soak up coconut palm lined shores.
Zanzibar may be a little bigger but there is so much sweetness to discover. Stroll along sun swept beaches, visit quirky little fishing villages and then swim with Bottlenose and Humpback dolphins in their wildness. Take long walks on the east coast where powdery beaches beckon and some of the best scuba diving in Africa can be found.
Beaches in Africa can be busy and they can be private. They can be long and they can be tiny. But they all offer a form of meditation to the visitor. And you can choose your accommodation according to your budget and needs – from luxury seafront hotels to tiny villas on cliffs overlooking ocean waves. Journey in Style will tailor make your beach holiday today. Call us.
