On your beach vacation, a warm fuzziness envelops you as soon as you catch sight of tranquil blue waters lapping silken sands. Your taste buds tingle with sublime flavors of coconut and local seafood. Watch a brilliant orange sunset as you sip a drink with your toes burrowing into the sand.
Enchanting Travels experts understand that a beach is not just a beach. Some like it hot, and some like it cold. You may prefer sandy shores touched by cool Atlantic waters around Cape Town, South Africa or warm tropical waters off the Mozambique coast. Take your pick from a secluded private stretch of beach, or one with a pier and boardwalk, and a restaurant and party scene.
Luxurious accommodation with modern amenities forms the base of a beach holiday. We will find you a fabulous five-star hotel, retro cliff-top cabin, or private villa with floor-to ceiling windows. Hold still though, because we also know that a beach vacation is much more than hours spent on a sun-lounger sipping mai tais.
Let the wonderful creatures of the sea become an integral part of your beach vacation. Hop on a whale and dolphin watching tour on the Sri Lankan coast. Or get up close and personal as you swim with dolphins in Mauritius or with turtles and colorful tropical fish in the coral-filled waters of Indonesia or the Maldives. Water sports that suit every level of challenge and fitness are yours for the asking.
Exquisite beaches aside, a holiday whether in Bali, Thailand, Goa is also about exploring local cultural heritage. Our experts know how to curate the pitch-perfect vacation balancing the beats and rhythms of the destination with your needs. Get ready to sneak off to the coast on a holiday that’s entirely about relaxation, or one that’s part of a longer safari or cultural holiday.
After your aromatic oil massage and sea-salt scrub is done, take a long, quiet walk on a pristine beach. As you watch the sky kiss the sea you’ll probably want to give yourself a gentle pinch to check if you’re dreaming.
