Our beach holidays largely take place in the Indian Ocean islands all of which offer great year-round temperatures. The destination you choose depends on budget, time of year, personal taste and the destination of your safari, should you be combining the two.

Mauritius is our most popular beach destination and it caters brilliantly for all types of guests. The island's resorts offer incredible honeymoon and family discounts and special offers. Mauritius provides an incredible selection of superior hotels, exquisite cuisine and diverse and varied activities. If you are travelling with young children the Kid's Clubs on offer in Mauritius are amongst the best in the world.

The islands of the Maldives particularly suit couples, although there are a few hotels catering very well for children. The islands are the perfect destination for isolation and exclusivity and are one of the few places in the world to offer 'over water' villas.

Likewise the islands of the Seychelles offer true exclusivity with some incredible private island getaways to choose from. The beaches of the Seychelles are known for being amongst the most beautiful in the world and this is coupled with high quality accommodation offering facilities for families and couples alike.

Zanzibar's beauty is that it not only offers palm-fringed beaches and outstanding diving but also a unique Arabian and Swahili history and culture. It is also the most popular Indian Ocean Island with which to combine with an East African safari.

Mozambique is very different to the other destinations in the Indian Ocean. There are no large resorts it is an off-the-beaten-track beach destination offering unspoilt barefoot luxury. A true castaway experience, the beaches are remote, the eco-lodges are small and the activities are largely nature-based.

Beach holidays are also on offer in South Africa with its expansive, wild coastline as well as the Kenyan and Tanzanian mainland coast. For something really unique, lounge on the beaches of Lake Malawi or combine a city and beach break in one in the Arabian Peninsula.

Your dedicated Mahlatini expert will perfectly match your expectations with the right destination and accommodation. Each of our experts will have personally visited the destinations and their accommodation offerings. They will have lounged on the beaches, tried out the activities and eaten the food. You can trust them to tailor you a unique and luxurious beach holiday unlike any other.
