Destination Islands

There really is nothing quite like a couple of weeks away from it all relaxing on a white, powdery sand beach, soaking up the sun’s rays; feeling a reduction in stress levels and an increase in your sense of well being. Here at About Travel we offer a wide range of luxury beach holidays that will help you do just that. What’s more our experts are on-hand to ensure you select the right beach in the right destination – one that will suit you the best.

You may like the idea of the placid blue waters, languid beaches and whispering trade winds of the Tahiti. Or perhaps the idea of a private picnic on a sheltered beach as offered by the Southern Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles appeals. Alternatively, there’s a string of more than a thousand coral atolls sprinkled in the Indian Ocean (we know them as the Maldives) offering dreamy barefoot luxury – blue lagoons, dazzling beaches and rustling palms provide the perfect setting for some real time-out. Here the pace of life is perfect for unwinding with a good book or dozing off in a hammock.

A good beach holiday can’t always take us to Nirvana or solve all our problems, but it can cause a fundamental shift in our outlook and improve our confidence levels. A simple beach holiday might be seen as unadventurous, but for total relaxation it’s tough to beat.

The island of Tahiti is the largest land mass in French Polynesia. It rises steeply from the ocean and is crowned with rugged, mist-shrouded peaks. The mountainous interior remains largely unpopulated, a mysterious region of dense forest sliced by deep ravines and fast-flowing rivers. The capital Papeete is your gateway to the Islands.

Moorea is a truly wonderful vision; a huge black volcanic rock, the remnant of an ancient volcano, rises sheer from the ocean. Its slopes, many covered in pineapple plantations, rise giddily to the majestic peaks of Tohiea, Rotui, Mouaroa and Mouaputa. This is the quintessential Polynesian dreamscape.
