June 1st was the unofficial start of summer! Planning your beach getaway? Instead of traveling to the Caribbean Islands for your beach vacation, consider visiting one of these three beautiful islands off the African coast.

Did you know one of the top reasons for travelers to visit Africa is to climb Kilimanjaro or embark on a safari? If you are looking for white and pristine sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, warm oceans, and unique wildlife, a visit to the African islands is also a must. This week we are showcasing three of the best African islands to add to your travel bucket list.

Remote Mauritius

Mauritius is an island bursting with color! It's known for its lagoons, beaches, and reefs. The island is famous for the white beaches of Palmar and Belle Mare, and Tamarin Bay. While you are there, visit the Black River Gorges National Park, which has rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails, and wildlife like the flying fox.

Mauritius is a popular golf destination with ten golf courses. Some of the golf courses are nestled in the heart of lush nature, between mountain and sea.

What are the best times to visit Mauritius? The most agreeable times to visit are from April to June and from September to December. Mauritius is a tropical haven you must visit.

Seychelles - a romantic hideaway set in a tropical paradise

For anyone looking for unspoiled tropical paradise hundreds of miles from anywhere, the Seychelles islands are the answer. Seychelles is in the Indian Ocean and consists of 115 granitic and coralline islands. It's home to numerous beaches, coral reefs, nature reserves, and rare animals such as giant Aldabra tortoises.

Imagine lying on not crowded palm-fringed beaches, swimming in warm, crystal-clear topaz seas, and just relaxing. Seychelles is a haven for honeymooners, fishermen, and families alike; this island destination complements the African safari experience perfectly.

Mozambique Getaway

Mozambique was a Portuguese colony and gained its independence from Portugal in 1975. Mozambique, whose coastline extends from South Africa to Tanzania, is known for its pristine, less-traveled beach destinations along the Indian Ocean.

Retreat to this island of outstanding beauty with beaches of powder-white sand that extends for more than 1500 miles. The beaches of Mozambique are as full of character as her people. The coral reefs are some of the best on earth, and the marine life is spectacular, from manta rays and whale sharks.
