Discover and explore island escapes around Africa, the Indian Ocean, South and Central America and Southeast Asia

Explore islands beyond the Mediterranean with our tailor-made island holidays.

Africa’s network of islands, both off its coastline and tucked away on the extensive lakes of the Great Rift Valley, are perfect places to escape the world and enjoy paradise. The spice island of Zanzibar off Tanzania's coast is undoubtedly the best-known, offering beautiful beaches, watersports, and Stone Town's culture. Islands like Pemba, Mafia, and Songo Songo are also amazing spots. In South and Central America, the coral cays of Belize's Barrier Reef and Isla Mujeres off Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula tempt with turquoise waters. The Galapagos Islands offer wildlife and diving opportunities in addition to relaxing vibes. Southeast Asia charms with islands like Indonesia's Bali, the Philippines' Boracay and Palawan, and Malaysia's Langkawi, noted for their lush scenery. The Indian Ocean too dazzles, especially the Seychelles and Mauritius, where you can spend an entire holiday immersed in local life and lovely beaches.

Whether hoping to pair an island escape with other adventures or indulge in a dedicated beach retreat, options abound across these regions. From activity-packed holidays to blissful relaxation, islands deliver on tropical fantasies with snow-white sand, swaying palms, delicious seafood, rich cultures, and more postcard-worthy offerings. Any island aficionado will find their version of paradise amongst these myriad gems.
