Pristine white beaches

If you’re looking for sunshine, surf and sand, Africa offers an incredible variety of some of the world’s most exotic beach and island holidays. For pristine white beaches surrounded by gently swaying palm trees, cloudless skies and beautiful azure waters gently lapping the shore, you can’t go wrong with an island destination like the Seychelles, Mauritius, the Bazaruto archipelago or even the exotic, culturally rich island of Zanzibar. If however, you prefer to stick to the mainland, South Africa also offers some of the world’s finest beaches, stretching on for miles. From the long, lonely beaches of South Africa’s West Coast to the excitement of Cape Town beaches like Clifton and Camps Bay, and of course the warm waters and endless beaches of the KwaZulu Natal coast, you’ve got a lot of options to choose from. Whether you want to glam it up on Clifton 4th beach or unwind on your own private island getaway, Africa can offer you exactly the kind of beach holiday you’re looking for.
