5 African beach paradises you never knew existed
OK, so you might actually have heard of North Island: it’s the most exclusive property in the Seychelles. But we’re including it in our list of African beach paradises because the levels of luxury, of privacy, and of style challenge preconceptions of what Africa has to offer. You won’t find a more stunning spot. Take a guided walk along the shoreline, and your guide will tell you about the Noah’s Ark Island rehabilitation programme, the means by which turtle and other native wildlife are being protected. Sail out into the crystal clear waters to fish. Catch your own supper, then let the chefs cook it for you on the beach as you watch the sunset with a glass of cold white wine in hand.
