Best Countries to Travel to for a beach holiday in 2019

The New Year is upon us and we all know what that means: a whole new 12 months to travel as much as possible in. Africa is such a vast and beautiful continent that so much is happening on, you will not want to miss all it has to offer.

Here is a list of the top African countries to visit this year:


Mauritius is one of Africa’s most beautiful Islands. What is also stunning about it is the way the citizens and government protect and preserve the beaches as well as the marine life. Mauritius is perfect for a family holiday as it is a very safe country to travel to. The crime rate is very low and the Mauritian people tend to be very friendly and peaceful people. It is also not overcrowded and the tourists do not take over the entire Island. The atmosphere is relaxed and there are activities for the entire family.



As Mozambique is a very fast country and you reach from the most remote places to fairly crowded ones, I`m going to focus on one specific area: Barra. This is a very popular area in Mozambique especially over December holidays. It is easy to see why. The beach is a very long strip of beach so even if there are hundreds of people it never really gets over crowded. Another reason is because of the stunning area surrounding Barra. There are coconut trees and white sandy dunes everywhere. Barra also has awesome activities such a quad biking for the entire family to enjoy together.
