Awash with stunning beaches

A continent renowned for incredible beaches

Africa is renowned for its incredible beaches, strung out along the length of its Indian Ocean coastline from Kenya to Mozambique, as well as on idyllic tropical islands such as Seychelles, Mauritius and Zanzibar. South Africa is also renowned for its lovely beaches, both on the Indian and Atlantic Coastlines.

Standalone beach holidays in Africa are a great way to spend your time away, with Mauritius and the Seychelles offering the best options, with some amazing resorts tucked away on white sand beaches overlooking crystal clear waters. Mozambique too is becoming a popular option for travellers looking for a “fly and flop” holiday in an exotic location. There are some amazing lodges on the islands of the Bazaruto archipelago, as well as some secret spots further south around the capital Maputo.

Kenya’s extensive Indian Ocean coastline has a range of glorious spots for a few days relaxing after a safari, from historic Lamu in the north to the vibrant port town of Mombasa and elegant Diani Beach further south. Tanzania only has a handful of beach hotels on its coastline but is renowned for offering easy access to the Spice Island of Zanzibar, as well as the outlying islands of Pemba, Mafia and Songo Songo. For an “inland” beach experience those in the know take a trip to Lake Malawi, a wonderful spot with warm waters, sandy beaches and a huge range of activities to enjoy. South Africa is renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches around Cape Town, notably Clifton and Camps Bay, but also has wonderful wild beaches in the Western and Eastern Capes, as well as up in KwaZulu-Natal.

However you want to enjoy your time on the beach, Africa has an location that will suit what you are looking to enjoy. From idyllic retreats on private islands to large all-inclusive resorts that offer fun for all of the family, there is plenty to enjoy. Equally, adventurers will revel in being able to enjoy some of the most remote and wild beaches that the world has to offer.
