Where we go to relax and unwind

Bikes by the beach.

Europe

Short flight times from the UK, golden beaches and a temperate climate grab the limelight on European beach holidays, yet it’s the history and diverse culture that steals the show.




Ostrich by the sea.

Africa

Dramatic coastlines and castaway beaches, virtually deserted besides the wildlife, provide the perfect setting for relaxing in Africa – either before or after you’ve explored the city and beyond.


Beach in Dubai.

Middle East

Guaranteed year-round sunshine, and a shorter flight than most other long-haul destinations, ensures that the Middle East makes the top list for beach holidays.


Beach in the Maldives.

Indian Ocean

For a true sense of escapism there’s nowhere quite like this ­– the sandy shores and gentle surf provide both a bathing and diving paradise, particularly if you’re looking for some winter sun.


Man on beach.

Far East and Australia

Packed full of natural wonders, iconic beaches and bewildering experiences, beach holidays in the Far East & Australia are every bit as exotic.
