Azure waters, white sands, a cool, tall drink by the side and you in a hammock. Is that all you want when there is so much more one can do on a beach holiday?
From June to December you can watch southern right whales (that’s what they are called) cavorting just off the Western Cape coast in South Africa. Stay at Birkenhead House and watch the action from the terrace itself.
For the environment conscious nothing like Fernando de Noronha island 350km off the coast of Brazil. The air is the purest in the world after that in the Arctic and only 480 visitors are allowed on the island at a time. Stay at Maravilha, a contemporary inn with eight charming wooden bungalows on a rugged hillside.
For something extraordinary, head to Bora Bora in French Polynesia. The Four Seasons here takes care of families in 107 thatched bungalows and suites on stilts. Closer home are the pleasures of Koh Kood island at Soneva Kiri, with personalised sensory spa journeys and wellness activities.
If there is any other holiday that you want to do differently, give us a call. We’ll surely give you an alternate view or two.
