Beautiful beaches matched with five-star luxury are a winning combination. We have selected a collection of five beautiful and accessible beach locations. Each has its own unique hallmark, distinguishing it as a go-to.
Here’s where you should be jetting off to this week:
Anse Lazio, Praslin, SeychellesPicture-postcard Anse Lazio is regularly voted one of the world’s top-ten beaches, and it’s easy to see why. A swathe of powder-soft sand and turquoise water is flanked by granite boulders and palm trees.
Don’t miss: Nearby Fregate Island Private has 16 secluded and luxurious residences with butler service. Wildlife here includes giant Aldabra tortoises, sea turtles and an array of rare and exotic birds.
Fly with Victor to: Praslin Island Airport, Seychelles by Turbo prop only – 20.6km away from Anse Lazio Beach
Rondinara Beach, Bonifacio, CorsicaBetween Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio, in Corsica’s L’Extrême Sud, Rondinara is one of the hidden gems of Europe. Resembling the Caribbean rather than the Mediterranean, it’s a pure jetsetter’s retreat, with perfect sandy cove, stunning turquoise waters, and pine trees for much-needed shade.
Don’t miss: Check into Casa del Mar in nearby Porto Vecchio, for understated, waterside chic.
Fly with Victor to: Figari–Sud Corse Airport, Corsica – 9mi / 15km away from Rondinara Beach
Miami Beach, Miami, USSynonymous with Art Deco and Art Basel, Miami Beach is the perfect place for a spot of oceanside culture and celebrates its centenary this year. A visit to the Wynwood Art District and Bass Museum is a must, as is a tour of South Beach. Book through the Miami Design Preservation League. Ian Schrager’s sleek Edition hotel, tucked away in its own 3.5-acre enclave, is the place to see and be seen, with design-led interiors, private beach access and basement ice-rink.
Don’t miss: Be sure to make a reservation at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s stunning Matador Room before you leave.
Fly with Victor to: Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, Florida, United States – 12mi / 20km away from Miami Beach
Balandra Beach, Baja California, MexicoFor sheer escapism, Balandra cannot be matched. Framed by low-lying, ochre mountains and the odd giant cacti, it feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of La Paz, 25 km up the road. The beaches here are protected from development by the local community. Translucent waters abound with green sharks, whale sharks, stingray and star fish. Divers will be in their element, although kayaking around the bay can be just as rewarding. Fly onto Cabo San Lucas and stay at the Esperanza Resort, the only private beach resort in Los Cabos.
Don’t miss: The opportunity for snorkelling among the kaleidoscopic coral.
Fly with Victor to: Manuel Márquez de León International Airport – 28mi /45km away from Balandra Beach
Búzios, BrazilTwo hours from Rio de Janeiro, Búzios is where the city crowd head for some serious fun and R&R. Dubbed the St Tropez of Brazil, the fishing village turned international playground has boutiques, bars, a picturesque promenade and more than 20 beaches in the vicinity to choose from. Surfers, or those wishing to learn, should seek out Praia de Geribá, where the national championships are held. Boards and wetsuits can be hired once there.
Don’t miss: The gorgeous Villa Luz – a contemporary beach house, sculpted into the hillside, with ocean views and infinity pool – is the place to rent.
Fly with Victor to: Cabo Frio International Airport, Brazil – 17mi / 28km away from Búzios
