International Beach Holidays

    There’s never a bad time to set out on a leisurely beach getaway. Whether you’re on a budget or are planning splurge on an exotic break, there’s a beach out there that’s just the right fit for you. That said, here are some of the best beach destinations from around the world that every aspiring nomad must travel to at least once in their lifetime.

    Seychelles

    Known for its powder-white beaches, turquoise sea and lush landscapes, Seychelles is as close as it gets to a tropical paradise. An archipelago of 115 picture-perfect islands clustered together in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles combines some of the world’s most beautiful beaches with a laidback island vibe. From high-end resorts where you can rub shoulders with celebrities, to smaller guesthouses for budget-conscious vacationers, there’s something here for everyone. Seychelles is also a haven for Nature-lovers and eco-tourists. You can spot nesting sea turtles on Bird Island or giant Aldabra tortoises on Curieuse. Also stop by the several bird sanctuaries in Aride, Cousin and Birds islands, which are home to terns, tropicbirds, warblers and magpie robins. Explore the depths of the deep blue sea with diving and snorkelling expeditions. Don’t forget Praslin's Vallée de Mai, where you can view the rare coco de mer palms in their natural state.

    Thailand

    Exotic and historic Thailand is another beach haven that continues to charm travellers of all ages with its laidback beaches, exciting nightlife and ancient spirituality. Expect skylines dotted with magnificent golden Buddhas and gleaming temple-tops, ancient banyan trees that harbour spirits and vibrant festivals that are open to all. Combine these with white-sand beaches, tropical jungles, forgotten ruins and bustling morning markets, and you have a destination that is bound to steal the hearts and imaginations of first time and returning visitors. The Eastern and Southern coasts also harbour a number of islands, including Krabi and Ko Samui. Thai food is another universal favourite and the local cuisine is based off fresh local produce – pungent lemongrass, piquant chillies and ocean-fresh seafood combine to create extraordinary flavours. From diving with whale sharks to kite-boarding and treating yourself some much-needed spa therapy, there’s no dearth of ways to pass the time in Thailand.

    Sri Lanka

    Often bypassed by sun and surf-seeking tourists in favour of more publicized beach destinations, Sri Lanka is a pristine, timeless tropical destination that is rapidly scaling the popularity charts. Home to some of the world’s most exquisite UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this teardrop-shaped country packs in more than two millennia of cultural heritage, against the backdrop of ancient ruins and legendary temples. The country also has several natural parks where you can meet elephants, leopards, wild buffaloes, and a number of birds and primates. Sri Lanka’s beaches are some of the world’s most gorgeous, and are embroidered with sparkling surf and flanked by deep aquamarine seas. When you tire of the sand and surf, take a break by trekking to the country’s many tea plantations or discover Colombo’s historic Colonial sites. The country’s coasts are excellent for water sports and diving – if you’re lucky, you can also view glorious blue whales via guided tours in Mirissa.
