African Islands

The crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean run from the Horn of Africa to the Western Cape, and the islands among them are some of the best places in the world for a romantic getaway or relaxing denouement to a safari. The resorts here are remote and luxurious, however, the dramatic beaches of the Seychelles, Zanzibar, and further south to Madagascar are all accessible via direct flights from several African and European capitals. Islands on the Atlantic side of the continent such as São Tomé and Príncipe are remote, but they offer a more unique beach escape for those looking to travel off the beaten path.
