All-Inclusive African Beach Holidays, Vacations + Destinations

But which African country has the best beaches? Well, that depends entirely on the type of African beach holidays, or vacations you’d like to experience. Being based in Africa means that we’re able to soak up the sun, snorkel, scuba dive, surf, and savor the best African beaches on a regular basis.

In terms of the best African beach holiday experiences, focus your research on Tanzania, South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, and Zanzibar. If an inland lake can be classified as a beach, don’t forget to swing by Lake Malawi too. All of these destinations cater to family getaways and are wonderful as honeymoon escapes too.
