Indian Ocean

The Indian Ocean conjures up images of palm trees and white sandy beaches shelving into clear turquoise waters. It is an exotic, enticing ocean littered with coral and sand islands – and we can say from experience that it doesn’t disappoint.

There are thousands of islands strung out across the Indian Ocean. Some, such as Mauritius and the Maldives and the Seychelles are well known as honeymoon destinations, while Zanzibar is ideally situated as a beach break add-on after a safari in East Africa. Others, such as Sri Lanka and Madagascar are real gems in terms of their cultural nuances and biodiversity - particularly wildlife.
