Beaches at a glance

African beaches are amongst the most beautiful in the world. Warm tropical climate, the golden shimmer of the glowing sun reflected on the ever-changing surface of blue pristine ocean waters and the soft white sands touch beneath your skin seems like a scene from a dream right? Wrong! This is Africa.

The island off East Africa, like Mauritius, Seychelles and Zanzibar are iconic and some of the most visited beaches in the world.

The soothing sounds of the lapping ocean waves is the perfect soundtrack while lounging about on the beach front with friends, enjoying the African sun with dessert cocktails tantalizing your taste buds. Sail into the sunset aboard a luxury yacht, and spoil yourself to a succulent candlelight seafood dinner as the darkness falls around you.
