Exotic and untamed, Africa is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beach villas. East Africa’s seaboard, known as the Swahili Coast, reaches from Kenya in the north to Mozambique in the south and encompasses several exquisite tropical archipelagos. Shaped by the warm and powerful Agulhas Current, both man and marine life thrive in these bountiful waters – your playground to explore!
The spice-scented breeze, endless white sands and gently dipping palm trees seem at odds with this coastline’s tumultuous history of pirates and missionaries. The mingling of Eastern, European and African peoples created the Swahili culture with its sumptuous cuisine and rich, lilting language. Arab dhows still plow the balmy waters, cinnamon plantations still perfume the air, and our hand-selected African beach villas offer retreats as sumptuous as a Sultan’s palace.
Each beach villa has been chosen for its home comforts, effortless luxury and close proximity to the ocean’s edge. African beachfront vacations offer an ideal combination of relaxation and action for many different types of travellers, so our collection ranges from spacious 10-bedroomed family villas to intimate 2-bedroom apartments.
