While all are famed for their picture-postcard beaches, palms and blue seas, the holidays we design here go far beyond the traditional luxury fly-and-flop. Although, that’s also fine by us! Come to the Indian Ocean with Explorations, and you’ll discover worlds beyond the spa and beach bar. Surf oceanic swells from a seaplane in the Maldives. Support the conservation of reefs, seabirds and giant tortoises on a marine safari in the Seychelles’ remote Outer Islands. Explore the secrets of Mauritian cuisine with a top local chef. Explore the lava fields and rainforests of Reunion’s highlands in a buggy. Whatever you choose, you’ll find that life is more than a beach.
