Cape Vidal Beach, in South Africa, is regarded as one of the continent's greatest. Camps Bay Beach is only a small part of those 3000 kilometers of coastline to consider. Cape Vidal Beach is ideal for those seeking a mix of beach and forest scenery.
The Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park, where this beach is located, is one of the country's most magnificent wilderness areas. The scenery surrounding Cape Vidal Beach is stunning, and the ocean teems with tropical fish. Enjoy a safari in the reserve, followed by some well-deserved R&R on the lovely sandy beach.
You can also enjoy horseback riding in St. Lucia (even if you are not an experienced rider). Feel like a king or queen as you gallop along the beach next to one of the world's tallest sand dunes. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of some whales breaching off the coast!

4.Anse Source d'Argent, Seychelles.
The Seychelles are a group of 115 small islands in the Indian Ocean, around 2,000 kilometers off the east coast of Africa. La Digue is one of them, and it's home to one of Africa's most famous beaches, the megastar.
It's no wonder Anse Source d'Argent is one of the world's most photographed beaches, what with its distinctive granite cliffs and lush green palms.
Because of the offshore reef, the sea at Anse Source d'Argent is quiet, making it an excellent place for snorkeling.
5.Tofo Beach., Mozambique.
Located in Mozambique, Tofo Beach boasts a long stretch of fine sand. Perfect for long walks along the nearly empty beach or lounging under a palm tree on your blanket. Alternatively, Tofo is a fantastic area to go snorkeling or scuba diving because it is home to a big population of whale sharks.
Divers will appreciate the near proximity to the coast and exceptional visibility at these dive locations. Don your mask and snorkel before you go! Then it's time to unwind in the shade of some palm trees. Due to its proximity to South Africa, Mozambique makes for an excellent side trip from that country.
6.Flic en Flac Beach, Mauritius.
With its tropical jungle, scorching grassland, strange rock formations, red sand roads and of course hundreds of animals (including lemurs!) Madagascar offers adventure as well as beaches, but Mauritius is all about sheer pleasure and leisure.
It's the perfect place to unwind after your trip to Madagascar, with its white sand beaches and average temperature of 25°C. The south of Mauritius is dominated by little bays, whilst the north of the island has postcard-perfect tropical sand beaches.
7.South Africa's Camps Bay Beach.
The country's coastline extends for more than 3,000 kilometers. There are so many options! Camps Bay Beach, in South Africa's Western Cape province, has a tropical feel with its palm palms, large beaches, and chic eateries.
And it's one of the most scenic, with a vista of the Twelve Apostles and Lion's Head to die for. Because Camps Bay is one of Cape Town's wealthier neighborhoods, there are numerous bars and restaurants to choose from. It's quite OK to unwind on a lounge bed with a snack and a beverage in hand. It's time to mix some drinks!
8.Namibia's Walvis Bay Beach.
Namibia tours typically conjure images of sand when contemplated. A few weeks later, weeks after your trip, you may still find the grains of the Sossusvlei in your suitcase as a memento of an adventure filled with close encounters with wildlife, the click language of the bushmen, and a boat excursion through the Okovango Delta on a hollowed-out tree trunk.
Namibia, on the other hand, has a 2,000-kilometer coastline with plenty of room for some downtime. The beach between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, for example, is a great location.
The world's oldest and tallest dunes may be seen here, and they turn a stunning shade of red as the sun rises and sets. Take a sandboard ride down from the top for some added excitement.
9.Santa Monica Beach, Cape Verde.
Cape Verde is an archipelago made up of volcanic islands located far from the coast of North West Africa's coast. Portugal is a popular African tourism destination because of its Portuguese-African culture and unique natural landscape.
The numerous dream beaches, where you can swim year-round, should not be overlooked. The island of Boa Vista's Santa Monica Beach is widely regarded as the country's most beautiful.
A no-brainer when you consider that the Atlantic offers nearly infinite white sand and strong waves perfect for skilled windsurfers and kite surfers.
With snow-white sands and swaying palms, you undoubtedly picture the beaches of Madagascar when your mind is closed. Perfect for unwinding, but it's also known for seeing whales pass by during the summer. Even from a few meters away, whales can be seen during a whale-watching cruise!
However, Madagascar is more than just a vacation destination. Tropical rainforests, volcanic mountains, reddish-brown dirt, desert regions, savannas, steppes, and bountiful rice fields are among the diverse landscapes you'll see. Secretly, this island never gets old!
