Starting with Europe, how about visiting Crete? As well as the bright blue ocean, Crete also promises Minoan ruins, and an amazing array of historical sites. A lot of visitors come just to crash in one of resorts, which are mostly along the island’s northern coast, but for travellers wanting to conduct their own explorations the island’s eastern and western tips still hum with a slower, more traditional way of life. The basic Crete island holiday idea visits all the major sights from Chania travelling west to Agios Nikolaos, and spares more time for exploring the ancient side of the island than reclining on the beach.

Turky vacation ideas recommend hopping along the bit of Turkey’s coast lined up against the Mediterranean called the Turquoise Coast. The sand running along the coast is generally softer and paler than that along the Aegean Coast, and the water is warmer than the Black Sea. For these reasons resort towns line it, as they have done for thousands of years. Incorporate some role play into your trip by visiting the ruins of some of these ancient resorts and make like an ancient Roman, enjoying the sun, sea and sand.

What about Indian Ocean island holiday ideas? Start with Seychelles islands holiday ideas: 16 of the Seychelles islands have visitor accommodation; some, like the largest island, Mahé have options ranging from campsites to five star hotels, but some, like Cousine are private island resorts, with space for as few as eight guests. All the islands have beaches made of fine white sand, lined with bright blue waters, and beyond that coral reefs – it’s a tropical daydream given, but like a row of gorgeous sisters each has their own private charms as well.

Mauritius island holiday ideas promise gorgeous pale, tropical beaches just across the waters from Africa and there are direct flights from South Africa, Kenya and Zambia to Port Louis, which makes it quick and easy, as far as travel details go, to follow up an African safari with some time on the beach, for a trip that combines seeing some of the world’s most impressive wild animals, and untouched places with some beach bound pampering. For a lot of people this kind of trip would also make the perfect honeymoon.

Maldives island holiday ideas are all about the idyllic pale tropical beaches complete with palm tree fringing, hammocks and hotel-hut-bungalows hovering over the water, the coral jungles and brightly coloured marine life you can snorkel by without much effort, lush scenery around beautiful waterfalls and of course a chance to share the laid back lifestyle. But why do you want to visit? Are you looking for a tropical island to unwind or honeymoon on? A chance to dive some of the world’s best dive sites, a tropical island sailing hop, a cultural experience or something in between? Maldives holiday ideas can be about all those things.
