Best value beach escapes at Alphonse and Azura

As travel starts to resume in fits and starts, we are delighted to share two exceptional special offers on tropical islands in the Seychelles and Mozambique.

WHY sell beach breaks?
Beach experiences are showing the highest demand. And, let's be honest, it's time to break free.
There is growing acknowledgement of the mental impact the past year has had. Research shows that vitamin D regulates mood, wards off depression and might help you shed a kilo or two!
Crowds have never been an issue on these remote islands, but now we not only have availability but also exceptional offers for those who are ready to travel.

WHAT are the offers?
14 nights from US$ 8,400 per person sharing.
Includes return flights from Mahe to Alphonse island.
7 nights from US$ 4,115 per person sharing.
Includes return helicopter from Vilanculos to Azura.

HOW to book?
Single country destinations are most in demand at the moment. Each offers a one-stop shop, from reservations to comprehensive pre-travel services, ensuring a seamless travel experience.
Our Classics team is standing by to assist with any queries!

We are rolling out some very good tactical offers for this year for the pioneers who are leading the way with travel in a COVID adjusted world.
