Beach Bliss

Picture sinking your toes into soft silky sands as the refreshing ocean laps around your ankles and the soothing sound of the rolling waves plays. After months of confinement, we could all use a blissful beach holiday to help us unwind and reinvigorate our spirits. Here are the finest spots you could be visiting.

Halkidiki

Sani Resort

Nestled in a tranquil ecological reserve amidst fragrant pine forests, golden sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Med, Sani Resort is a discretely luxurious coastal hideaway renowned as one of the best in the world for families.  

Each of the seven exclusive beaches are immaculate and have their own unique ambience. The Sea You beach is exclusive to guests of Porto Sani and offers a VIP experience, while your little ones play under the watchful eye of the Babewatch team; part of their complimentary service is looking after your children for half an hour so you can have a break. The blue flag Bousoulas beach - easily accessible from all Sani Resort hotels - has shallow waters ideal for your children to snorkel.  

Good to know: Babysitting services will still be available along with the monitored operation of the creche, kids’ and teens’ Clubs, Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy, the Football Academy by Chelsea FC, the on-site adventure park and a number of water sports. 

Antigua

Blue Waters Resort & Spa

Antigua has to make the list of any beach-lover thanks to its widely acknowledged refrain that there is a different beach here for every day of the year. Widely regarded as one of Antigua leading hotels, this family-run property sits close to three sandy beach coves with a host of water activities on offer including kayaking, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing and sailboat excursions.  

Spread over 17 acres of tropical island paradise, this ever-popular resorts features deluxe beachfront accommodation where you can while away each day gazing overviews of the Caribbean Sea and gently swaying palms.  

Good to know: At the resort’s spa, treatment rooms will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each treatment with ample time given between bookings to allow for thorough sanitization.

Cornwall

The Lugger

In the charming village of Portloe on Cornwall’s southern coastline, The Lugger sits hugging the brisk waters of the Roseland Peninsula. As the county’s only AA-rated Five Star Inn and having been voted as the Sunday Times “Best Seaside Hotel”, this 17th-century inn carries high prestige. On top of its 24 rooms and suites, there are three private cottages available at The Lugger where guests can indulge in the utmost privacy and seclusion whilst soaking in the panoramic sea views.

For a day spent with the sand between your toes, we recommend taking the ten-minute drive to the expansive open shores of Carne Beach. Speak to your Travel Counsellor about making your Cornish holiday into a truly nautical experience with an open water kayaking trip on the Fowey Estuary or a fishing trip to reel yourself some mackerel.
