Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

Tsarabanjina,

First up is Tsarabanjina in Madagascar. Sadly (for the kids) there are no talking penguins. But the gorgeous views, white sandy beaches and untouched marine life totally make up for that. This lush, exclusive volcanic island is made up of only 25 exclusive bungalows and one restaurant. The French speaking island oozes a relaxed atmosphere - ideal for family and friends.

Laucala Island, Fiji

Velaa Private Island, Maldives

Velaa Private Island, Maldives

Previously described as ‘beyond luxury’ - Velaa private island is the epitome of elegance, privacy and comfort. It has everything from pretty beaches, Michelin-starred dining, a private submarine and a nine-hole golf course. But none of that really matters. What makes this island special isn’t on its mainland but in the sea around. What on earth could we be referring to? Why it’s dolphins of course. This island is the perfect destination to spot the beautiful and intelligent mammals in their natural habitat. We’re not biased but nothing trumps dolphins. Nothing.

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

It’s a haven for watersports enthusiasts as well as being the ultimate chill spot for unwinding with a glass of champagne. Relax, unwind or jump on a jet ski - the choice is always yours.
