Mozambique beach holidays offer 2,500km of breathtaking coastline. Experience what it's like to swim with whale sharks, go scuba diving, swim in the turquoise ocean or just savour the superb beach views.
If you have just been on a safari, you can also refresh yourself on the lakeside beaches of Malawi or unwind and relax on Kenya's idyllic beaches before you fly back home.

Malawi also offers exquisite experiences for divers, so if underwater exploring is your passion, be sure to view the thousands of dazzlingly colourful Rift Valley cichlid fish. The palm-fringed beaches help to make Malawi's beaches breathtaking exotic paradises, which just have to be viewed in person.

If you visit Kenya's beaches, clean white sand and clear waters await you. Take long, relaxing strolls along the shoreline and soak up the sound of the waves hitting the beach or sit back under one of the tall coconut palm trees and savour the serenity.

Diving is also available for holidaymakers of all abilities, with diving schools for beginners and equipment to rent for the more experienced divers.
