For ultimate luxury, the 115 islands that make up the Seychelles Archipelago offer impossibly scenic beaches. From dense thickets of palm trees to giant granite boulders that are seemingly littered along the dazzling white sand, the islands are breath-taking. On some islands, you could find yourself sharing the beach with the Aldabra giant tortoise which can grow to 305kg!

Australias East Coast is home to some legendary beaches and the worlds largest coral reef system, the Great Barrier Reef. Visible from space, the reef is a kaleidoscope of colours and the beaches that surround this rich marine sanctuary have, arguably, some of the most power white, soft sand in the world.

In search of some world famous surf that rolls up onto your bungalow door? Teetering between the lush tropical rainforest and Pacific Ocean, the Costa Rican coastline is perfect for those active beach dwellers. Surfing, horse riding, rock jumping above waterfalls, ocean fishing and bird watching to name but a few.
