Beaches in Africa
South Africa Beaches
South Africa has a coastline of 2500 km stretching from the Namibian border in the northwest to the pristine beaches of northern Kabuli Natal in the east. We offer an array of beach accommodation such as beach cottages, villas (on and near the beach), both catered and self-catered as well as beach and diving resorts.
Mauritius: surrounded by more than 150 kilometres (93 miles) of white sandy beaches and the lagoons are protected from the open sea by the world’s third largest coral reef, which surrounds the island. Just off the Mauritian coast lie some 49 uninhabited islands and islets, some of them are used as natural reserves for the protection of endangered species.
Mozambique: located in Southeast Africa facing the Indian Ocean, Mozambique features year-round sunshine, tropical nature reserves, historic sites and some of the most beautiful coastline in Africa. Beach lovers, scuba divers and fishing enthusiasts from all over the world are drawn to Mozambique’s sandy white beaches and shimmering blue waters abundant in marine life. Along the pristine coastline are several attractive hotel resorts offering luxurious comforts and recreational adventures. Or what about island and beach hopping from a yacht?
Kenya: beaches can be divided into four main regions, each of which offers a unique experience. The Kenyan South Coast is renowed for palm-fringed white sand beaches such as the ever popular Diani Beach as well as the well accessible coral reefs which makes it a paradise for scuba diving and water sports. Mombasa’s lively city atmosphere has been long known for beach lovers seeking a classic sun and sea vacation. The Lamu Archipelago in the far north of Kenya has a distinct Moorish feel which is known for the exotic beach destinations while the idyllic and exclusive settings of the smaller island are sought after by honeymooners and romantic souls.
Secychelles: against the soothing blue of the Indian Ocean and with only granite boulders or the occasional cluster of palm trees breaking the long runs of powder-soft beaches, the islands of the Seychelles Archipelago are hard to beat as a beach holiday destination. And it’s not just the postcard-perfect beaches that sit among the world’s finest.
