Holidays to the Indian Ocean

Holidays to the Indian Ocean typically means a trip to one or more of the following four countries: Maldives, Sri Lanka, Seychelles, and Mauritius. All of which offer plenty of golden sands, hideaway islands, picture-perfect beaches, world-class hotels and lush dramatic landscapes. You can soak up the charm and culture of the Indian Ocean region by staying in a traditional fishing village. Alternatively, you could opt for a pristine beach resort or a luxury hotel. The region lives and breathes the laid-back beach vibe you want for a relaxing getaway. If you're in search of the perfect honeymoon, a great diving destination or family adventure, luxury Indian Ocean holidays are the answer.

Travel Tips & Advice for the Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean Activities


The Indian Ocean region is ideal if you just want to relax and do nothing much at all; however, if you'd like some adventure and entertainment there is plenty to do. Thanks to the seemingly endless stretches of beautiful beaches, there is no shortage of sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. Don't just stick to the beach though - take advantage of the majestic mountains and plan a hiking trip or take a canopy tour for a unique holiday experience.

Indian Ocean Food & Wine


Exploring the culinary world on an Indian Ocean holiday can be just as exciting as a trek through the mountains or a snorkelling adventure off the beach. The cuisine in this region is diverse and flavourful - something not to be missed. Expect a great deal of fresh fruits and vegetables, and lots of seafood. The local fare will depend entirely on which of the Indian Ocean countries you decide to visit, but it is always best to try some of the traditional recipes when you can.

Indian Ocean Attractions


Although romance and beach living seem to be favourite activities among those on holiday in the Indian Ocean region, the countries are very rich in culture and a history that is worthy of exploration. If you don't dive, glass-bottom boats offer a glimpse at the underwater world that you might otherwise miss. There are also many nature reserves where hundreds of unique species can be seen. It is essential that visitors should not miss seeing the ancient temples with their treasures.
