Some of the best beach holidays in the world are possible on the ocean coast and lakes of Africa. The weather is often clear here and the temperatures are warm yet still mild. Visitors have no need to stay inside and can rather get outside and enjoy laying by the pool or taking a walk down the beach or to nearby towns.  Beach holidays in Africa are also popular with families.  South Africa offers resorts in malaria-free zones, so makes it safe for those who are not able to anti-malaria medications.

There is a relatively wide variety of accommodation types to be found in Africa. Easiest to access are probably the larger resorts on the Kenyan coast, while the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos of Mozambique are the hardest to access. These beautiful archipelagos are made up of a number of small tropical islands that offer a secluded environment for those seeking relaxation.

For a more rustic and true African experience, visit one of the boutique eco-resorts on Lake Malawi. The lake offers a remarkable fresh-water snorkeling experience.
