Unwind at one of our beach destinations

Phuket, Thailand

Whilst it is one of Thailand’s most popular islands to visit, Phuket is also home to some of the most exotic and secluded beaches in the world. Head to any corner of the island and enjoy clear turquoise waters alongside powdery, white sand. Snorkeling and diving are popular activities to undertake in Phuket thanks to the warm, clear waters and tropical marine life. Head out to Banana Beach to see the immaculate contrast of crystal waters and the flourishing Phuket jungle. The beach is appropriately named, as it is home to plenty of banana boats you can ride around the bay.

Salalah, Oman

With its long sandy beaches, coconut palms, and turquoise water, Salalah is a lush oasis only a short drive from the desert. The best time to visit Salalah is during Khareef, or monsoon season, between June and August. The light drizzle during the season transforms this beach destination into a vibrant, green paradise with a cool breeze. If you are not a fan of rain, the dryer, winter months provide moderate temperatures (around 27°C/80°F) without the crowds and inflation of the tourist season. Whatever time you go, you’ll be able to relax and unwind on the beach, walk along the frankincense trees, and enjoy the beauty of this Omani beach town

The Maldives

The low-lying coral islands of the Maldives are popular amongst travelers, due to their prime conditions for snorkeling, diving and simply relaxing. If you are traveling to the Maldives for the coral, make sure to visit the HP Reef located in the North Male Atoll. It’s a protected area, home to some of the most colorful reefs and fish you will find. With approximately 1,200 islands to explore in this tropical archipelago, you certainly won’t be short of beaches to enjoy. We recommend a trip to Reethi Rah in the North Male Atoll - it’s one of the larger islands and is much less crowded than some of the others.
