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.

In the east coast of Africa, where the Indian Ocean meets Mozambique, Tanzania, and Kenya, as well as their tropical islands, you may find sun-kissed beach vacations under clear skies.

Find the ideal African beach retreat for you, whether you’re looking for seclusion on a white-sand island or proximity to the high life. Our services are tailored to meet your every need. There is a fascinating mix of cultures, lively marine life, and adventure activities to partake in if you are looking for something more than just a place to unwind.

Consider the freshwater beach vacations by Lake Malawi if you’re looking for a quick beach getaway after a safari in southern Africa. The snorkeling prospects, even though they are far from any ocean, will surprise you.

For a more unique experience, fishermen may face the chilly Skeleton Coast in Namibia for a fishing vacation to remember.
