When was your last relaxing beach break? That long ago?!
With Al Naboodah Travel it is never too soon to start planning your next holiday. To get you in the mood we’ve put together our best coastal getaways for anyone seeking sun, sea and glorious golden sand in 2018.
Every inch of Thailand is alive with cultural vibrancy and breath-taking beauty – including some of the most stunning beaches we have seen. Partygoers looking to let their hair down should head to littoral locations famous for all-night festivity, staying to welcome the new day as the sun comes up. Those in search of something more peaceful can relax on the soft sand as crystalline waves wash gently against the nearby shore – a personal coastal paradise.
An absolute must-see for anyone looking to kick back and relax by the sea. Located on the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is one of the most geographically-dispersed countries in the world. Spanning 298 square kilometres, the archipelago provides a hugely diverse set of islands to explore. With such variety, it is easy to tailor your visit to your individual needs. The Maldives is high up on many an adventurer’s bucket list – why not add it to yours?
Italy is home to some of Europe’s most picturesque seascapes, with dramatic cliffs and secluded resorts punctuating the picture-perfect coastline. Whether you are seeking pristine white beaches with clear waters or rugged rock faces shining with sea spray, Italy has something to accommodate your needs. Wherever you decide to visit, remember to pack your camera!
The second archipelago to make our list is Cape Verde, seated off the northwest coast of Africa. Cape Verde promises year-round sunshine and beautiful blue-green waters which really bring its beaches to life. A mix of mountains, sleepy seaside villages, strange music and curious colonial heritage means that you will be able to spend days soaking up the culture without even scratching the surface.
Top Tip: If you fancy mixing up your visit then ‘island hopping’ is how to do it, and what better way is there to experience the volcanic landscape than by boat?
