The Indian Ocean conjures images of palm trees and footprint-free beaches that shelve gently into aquamarine waters. And, we can say from experience that it doesn’t disappoint. Whether you’re interested in a private-island retreat, the best coral atolls or experiencing genuine island life, we can create an Indian Ocean holiday to suit.
The islands strung across the Indian Ocean have their own qualities, some tailoring toward honeymooners while others offer enough activities to keep children entertained for weeks. In the Seychelles, you’ll find giant tortoises and nesting turtles while the Maldives are surrounded by flourishing coral gardens. On Mauritius, head inland to explore volcanic mountains and subtropical forests. For a mixture of temples, wildlife and colonial architecture, we suggest Sri Lanka, while Zanzibar proves ideal as a beach break after an African safari.
