The African continent is home to some of the world’s best beaches, with 18,950 miles of coastline spread across 54 countries.

Madagascar has the continent’s longest coastline at 3,000 miles, with hundreds of lovely and often lonely beaches, as well as offshore islands like île Saint-Marie, where life goes slowly and the scenery is breathtaking.

South Africa and Mozambique have the third and fourth longest coasts on the African continent, respectively, and they also boast a plethora of gorgeous beaches with magnificent scenery — Camps Bay in Cape Town is a must-see.

Mozambique also has hundreds of offshore islands, like the Bazaruto Archipelago, which has warm, clear turquoise sea, pure white beaches, and a relaxed atmosphere. More incredible stretches of coastline may be found farther north in Kenya and Tanzania, where some of the nicest beaches can also be found off the mainland in island paradises such as Zanzibar in Tanzania and Lamu Island in Kenya.

With so many beautiful stretches of sand scattered across several countries, it’s difficult to pick the finest of the best when it comes to beaches. But we believe the ones we’ve highlighted here are the most captivating on the African continent.

Due to recent global health and safety challenges, certain businesses may be temporarily closed.

1. Bazaruto Island, Mozambique

Sand dunes and a stunning beach on Bazaruto Island

Bazaruto Island is located within the Bazaruto Archipelago Marine Park in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Mozambique, and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen. The ocean is warm and turquoise blue here, and the white sandy beaches are framed by swaying palms and towering sand dunes, providing a postcard-perfect vision of paradise.

The coral reefs surrounding Bazaruto are fantastic for snorkeling and are part of a larger archipelago famed for its incredible diving experiences.

The island is accessible by boat or small plane, and lodgings range from low-cost guesthouses to the luxury &Beyond Benguerra on a neighboring isle. The site provides accomodation in various sizes of elegant, thatched-roof huts that are ideal for honeymooners or families vacationing with children.

2. Camps Bay Beach, Cape Town, South Africa

Camps Bay Beach in Cape Town

Camps Bay Beach, with views of Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles peaks, is roughly a 10-minute drive from downtown Cape Town and is one of South Africa’s most popular beaches. Although the water is too chilly for most swimmers, sunbathing on the white-sand beach is a popular local pastime.

On summer weekends, this beach is packed with families, tourists, couples, and groups of friends looking to play beach volleyball or simply relax. When you feel too hot, take a brief swim in the Atlantic Ocean’s turquoise and emerald-striped waves. If you’re surprised by the chilliness despite the tropical appearance, you’re not alone. The current here originates in Antarctica.

South Beach Camps Bay is our favorite area to stay on this beach. The boutique hotel is decorated with original modern South African art and offers lodging in Miami-inspired studios with white-on-white decor, full kitchens, and private balconies from which to view the spectacular nightly sunsets.

Camps Bay is one of several excellent beaches within a 30-minute drive of Cape Town. The adjoining Clifton Beaches are also popular, with four coves protected from the wind and located at the bottom of a steep set of stairs leading down from the main road.

3. Nungwi Beach, Zanzibar Island, Tanzania

A vacation to Zanzibar Island, off the coast of Tanzania, is a fantastic experience. The beaches, notably Nungwi, are spectacular, and Zanzibar is also culturally rich.

4. Anse Source D’Argent, La Digue Island, Seychelles

Anse Source d’Argent, La Digue Island

The Seychelles Islands, located off the east coast of Madagascar in the center of the Indian Ocean, have long been a favourite vacation destination for the rich and famous. There are hundreds of magnificent beaches strewn throughout the archipelago, but Anse Source d’Argent on the island of La Digue is the most picturesque.

The jungle tumbles into gigantic granite boulders across a snow-white beach and a sea that appears to be unreal. Offshore from the beach, there is also decent snorkeling. There are more magnificent beaches with a more private and exclusive vibe near resorts on the islands of Desroches, Denis, and Fregate. The ideal months to visit the Seychelles are April and May, as well as October and November, when the skies are usually clear and beautiful.

5. Naama Bay, Egypt

Naama Bay, Sharm el-Sheikh

Naama Bay, in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, is the heart of Sharm el-Sheikh, the country’s most popular beach resort. The white-sand beach meets the pristine, quiet, blue seas of the Gulf of Aqaba here, and in the distance, you can see Saudi Arabia’s mountainous shoreline.

In the winter, Europeans flock to Naama Bay to escape the cold in their home countries. The area near Sharm el-Sheikh is particularly well-known for its diving in the coral reefs around Ras Mohammed National Park, with dives suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners. In addition, there is good snorkeling in the region. There are various lodging alternatives near this beach, including Movenpick Sharm El Sheikh, a huge and sophisticated resort perched atop a cliff and overlooking the bay. Oonas Dive Club, where you may also learn to scuba dive, is a nice mid-range alternative.

6. Île Sainte-Marie, Madagascar

Sainte Marie Island, Madagascar

Madagascar, one of Africa’s most fascinating countries, is yet relatively unknown. It is home to species and flora found nowhere else on the planet, and the scenery is breathtaking. Île Sainte-Marie is one of Madagascar’s most popular beach vacation destinations, located just off the coast of eastern Madagascar.

The island has bright skies all year and is a tropical paradise with long, porcelain-white sand beaches flanked by swaying palm palms and backed by pure blue ocean. The weather is pleasant all year, with beautiful blue skies. Between July and September, humpback whales can be seen off the coast, and there is good diving among unspoiled coral gardens.

7. Shela Beach, Lamu Island, Kenya

Shela Beach, Lamu Island, Kenya

Lamu Island, off the coast north of the port town of Mombasa, has crystal-clear aquamarine and turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, palm trees, and good snorkeling and diving. Shela Beach is a beautiful beach in the relaxing village of Shela Village. Time flows slowly here, and you may spend hours just watching the white-sailed dhows pass past in front of you on the Indian Ocean.

For a taste of culture, visit Lamu Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Kenya’s oldest communities, dating back 700 years. Spend some time exploring its winding streets. You may also arrange an island-hopping excursion in a traditional dhow, which will take you across the archipelago and introduce you to hidden beaches.

8. Agadir, Morocco

The most famous beach in Morocco is Agadir’s gold-sand beach on the country’s southern Atlantic coast. The family-friendly beach and resort town beyond it are particularly popular with European winter visitors who come here to escape the cold in their home countries.

The beach is divided into several portions, including two private sections dubbed Palm Beach and Sunset Beach, which are only accessible to guests of the resorts located on them.

Coffee Bay is another stunning beach in South Africa, located on the mountainous Wild Coast, which stretches along the country’s Indian Ocean coastline in the Eastern Cape province. Green hills and cliffs meet a vast swath of gold beach and the Indian Ocean’s deep blue waves here..

The sea may be moody and turbulent here, and there are some fantastic surf breaks nearby, but it’s not ideal for swimming. Still, when it comes to brooding raw beauty, Coffee Bay is hard to surpass, and this is a fantastic beach for lengthy hikes. The town has only a few backpackers and guesthouses and retains a rural vibe that many visitors will enjoy. Only eight kilometers from Coffee Bay lies Hole In The Wall, a rock in the seat at the mouth of the Mpako River that puts on a dramatic display of force when the water crashes through it.

10. Bom Bom Beach, Principe

Bom Bom beach is on the smaller of two islands in the Gulf of Guinea, off the coast of West Africa, and is part of the island republic of So Tomé and Prncipe.

The Skeleton Coast in Namibia

You won’t want to swim or even sunbathe here, as the water is freezing and the skies are often shrouded in mist. But few places in the world are as hauntingly beautiful as the beaches along Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.

This sparsely populated coastline between the Swakop and Kunene Rivers north of the town of Swakopmund is a ruggedly wild region where the Atlantic Ocean meets the dunes of the Namib Desert.

The name comes from all the wrecked ships found along this beach that ran aground over the centuries in the shallow and choppy waters. If you’re into bird-watching, there are a lot of seabirds near the wrecks. The area is also home to a large colony of seals.

Dim Sum

Hong Kong is renowned as a shopping Mecca for its chic malls, boutiques, smart shops, multipurpose stores, department stores, art shops, and day and night street markets. This location is a veritable wonderland for shopaholics thanks to the abundance of options. The PMQ courtyard in SoHo, Jardines Crescent in Causeway Bay, Ladies Market & Temple Street in Kowloon, and Cat Street Market in Sheung Wan are a few of the most well-known street markets you should visit. Perhaps the best place to shop is in Hong Kong.

Hike The Dragon’s Back

One of the most daring spots to visit in Hong Kong is the Dragon’s Back Trail, which is a part of the Shek-O-Country Park on the southern shore. Starting from the summit, this trail descends to a lovely beach. What a great way to finish a hike than with some calm waves. It is a moderate hike that covers an 8.5 km journey in around 4 hours. We have the opportunity to observe the opposite side of Hong Kong from the top of the hill. This hike is one of the most well-liked hikes in Hong Kong since it has lush foliage on both sides as you journey and stunning sandy beaches at the conclusion. Don’t forget to carry some water, a bathing suit and a towel on this hike.

A One Day Trip To The Venice of Hong Kong

Popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong include the Tai O Fishing Village, widely known as the “Venice of Hong Kong.” The name Tai O, which means large inlet, comes from the fact that this old fishing community was established on the banks of a river. The boat people lived in this area for more than 200 years. Visitors come here to take in the peaceful lifestyle of the hamlet, see the floating markets, appreciate the classic stilt houses, taste regional delicacies, and tuck into an abundance of seafood. Every day, a large number of people come here to explore a completely different side of Hong Kong. A visit to Tai O Fishing Village is an experience you won’t find anywhere else in Hong Kong.

Take Off To The Hong Kong Space Museum

The Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront is where the Hong Kong space museum is situated. This is the first planetarium in the area constructed for the popularization of astronomy and space science, covering an area of 8000 square meters.

A fascinating landmark to see is the distinctive egg-shaped dome built by chief architect Joseph Ming Gun Lee. Events including an astronomical carnival, astronomy competitions, engaging scientific lab sessions, talks, and astronomy movie screenings are organized by this museum. This is one of the most significant tourist destinations in Hong Kong for space enthusiasts. The interactive activities allow you a richer experience of the virtual space station. Plan appropriately because this space station is closed on Tuesdays.

Big Buddha or Tian Tan Buddha Statue

One of the tallest Buddha statues in the world, the Tian Tan Buddha Statue stands 34 meters tall. The Po Lin monastery on Lantau Island is atop the nearly 12-year-old Big Buddha. From a distance, the statue’s incredible immensity is seen. The cable car, which takes 25 minutes to arrive, is the best way to get to the Big Buddha statue. Incredible cable car journeys transport you over mountains, water, and forests. I advise you to purchase a combo ticket that includes the Ngong Ping Cable Car and Big Buddha tour guides.
