Some of the simplest holidays can be the hardest to get right and this is where our expertise can really be brought to bear. No two beaches are created alike but our experts have personally vetted every destination we recommend so will help you find the one you’re looking for. 

For sheer island indulgence, a beach holiday in the Maldives is close to unbeatable. Families love Mauritius for its well-run resorts and endless water sports while the soft, sandy shores of Phuket in Thailand beckon those who may want to combine the beach with cultural exploration. A private villa overlooking Arcachon Bay on France’s glorious west coast will suit foodies and families while those wanting a beach all to themselves may prefer Turkey’s Aegean coast or an island in the Greek Cyclades.  Back in the Indian Ocean, the islands off the coast of Mozambique, Madagascar and Zanzibar will tempt you with their wild shores and superb diving.

See below for a few ideas or call our experts to discuss your holiday requirements in detail.
