Serious relaxation with a touch of exploration

Hand-picked by us for their charm, character and glorious locations, our Hidden Beaches hotels are places where you can switch off and enjoy lazy days by the sea. Some are truly away from it all in far-flung places. Others are firm favourites in places well-loved for their beaches. Relaxation ties them all together, with a variety of choice to match your budget and tastes.

Combine your beach time with time to explore

Your Hidden Beaches trip can be more than just beach time. From listening to our travellers, we know there's still a strong itch to explore even when you're on a break to get away from it all. With this in mind, you can choose to twin your beach stay with a short trip in another place. And, to help you pick the before-the-beach experience you want to have, we've grouped them into four themes.

A Hidden Beaches specialist will plan your trip

Our Hidden Beaches specialists have rich experience travelling in our Hidden Beaches destinations and have stayed in our Hidden Beaches hotels, so you can speak to someone who can answer your questions from first-hand knowledge. The same specialist will handle your trip from start to finish.
