Luxury Exotic Beach Holidays

As beautiful as many of the European beaches are, there’s no denying that a more exotic beach holiday is a uniquely memorable experience. Imagine sipping on a pina colada served in a freshly picked coconut, with the sound of soft reggae music being carried toward you on a warm dusk breeze, and you’ll quickly see what we mean.

The lure of a tropical beach holiday is all about lush palm trees, secluded bays and off-the-beaten-track luxury. Oh and warm and sunny weather outside of the European summer – that’s key.

We’d argue that travelling a little further from the UK for your beach break will not only provide a sense of adventure, but also opens up a whole world (quite literally) of beaches just waiting for you to lie your towel on.

For a little exotic beach holiday inspiration, take a look at some of our favourite hotels below. We’ve got plenty more tropical beach options to offer too, so get in touch with one of our experts and let them help plan the perfect trip for you.
