Tailor-made beach vacations

A postcard-worthy beach, a carefully chosen coastal escape, that ideal spot to relax by the ocean… You can experience all this and more on a tailor-made beach vacation with Audley. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style, your budget. Our beach specialists are there to share their first-hand knowledge to lead you to experiences you won’t find in a guidebook.

Star-gaze the clear skies of Mauritius with an astronomer. Sail Maldivian waters on a traditional dhoni. Take a spice plantation tour on Zanzibar. Dive off Oman’s coast in search of mobula rays. Stay on a working cocoa plantation on Saint Lucia, with a view across the volcanic Pitons. Snorkel alongside turtles in the Seychelles. Feast on freshly-grilled mahi-mahi at a local Barbadian fish fry, to a pulsing soca beat.

Prime dive spots thriving with marine life, secluded coves at sunset, long stretches of powder-soft sand. What excites you? Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best options, wherever you go.
