 Experiences to remember…
 There are some memorable activities in Cuba including trying some of the 30
 amazing dive sites in Varadero, featuring the world’s biggest coral reef.
 Fabulous food and drink opportunities include eating in a paladre – a family-
 run eating outlet, a great way of experiencing some traditional Cuban life, and
 a long hot day is followed perfectly by a long cool drink, with a mojito being
 the tipple of choice in the beach resorts or bars of Havana. In the evening,
 move to the rhythm of the beat and try out Cuba’s hypnotising salsa dancing.

 Something to treasure forever…
 Cuba is the world’s most iconic producer of two decadent luxuries – their
 cigars are of a higher quality here than anywhere else in the world and their
 rum has a justifiably high repuation. You can buy it from the distillery and find
 out how it’s made. Whilst in Havana, visit the local markets and galleries to
 pick up a unique piece by one of Cuba’s many talented artists.

                  CUBA


      Caribbean
         Sea




Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and is full of mystique. It has to be
one of the greatest holiday destinations in the world, with its pristine beaches,
favourable climate, historic towns and cities and some blistering Latin night-life.


                                      Varadero
                                      Varadero is the perfect destination for relaxing. Situated on the northern coast of
                                      Cuba, on the wafer-thin Hicacos peninsula, it boasts one of the finest beaches in the
                                      world. Backed by mangroves and calm waters, the peninsula boasts a stunning 20
                                      kilometres of palm fringed, white sand, lapped by crystal clear turquoise water.
                                      Although the beach is undoubtedly the main attraction, Varadero has more to offer
                                      than its fabulous sand and watersports. The golf course at the centre of the resort
                                      offers fabulous views from each of its 18 holes, and there is a selection of open-air
                                      craft markets nearby, perfect for souvenir hunting. There is some respite from the heat
                                      in the shady green oasis of the beautifully landscaped gardens of Parque Josone and
                                      the nature reserve at the northeastern tip of the peninsula has trails through the woods
                                      to caves and virgin keys. The nightlife in Varadero is mainly hotel-based but is
                                      accompanied by a selection of local restaurants and bars offering international cuisine
                                      and your choice of rum punch.

                                      Havana is the largest city in the Caribbean. Here wide boulevards are still graced by
                                      1950’s American cars and crumbling cathedrals vie with glorious squares. Full of
                                      contrasts, this is a vivacious, and at the same time, laid-back city overflowing with
                                      history, art, culture and nightlife. Take a stroll through the cobbled streets of Old
                                      Havana admiring the magnificent and beautifully preserved colonial architecture, catch
                                      a rumba beat whilst dodging the vintage Cadillacs cruising the avenues in the
                                      dilapidated yet spectacular Centro Havana, and chill out on the dazzling white sandy
                                      beaches - taking time out to explore the colourful coral reefs. Centro Havana is the
                                      place to enjoy the exuberant nightlife and traditional cuisine. When the sun sets, follow
                                      in Ernest Hemmingway’s footsteps by sipping a mojito or two in one of his favourite

 sip rum cocktails at Pigeon Point, where white sands dissolve into
 ultramarine seas.

 Something to treasure forever…
 The island offers lots of cheerful souvenirs that will be perfect as
 presents, or to keep for yourself! Make room for rich Tobago fruitcake,
 made with lashings of rum and port wine, cheerful woodcarvings, beads
 and pottery made by local craftspeople, or fun cds of Tobago’s lilting
 soca and calypso music.

 Tobago is ringed with secluded bays and dotted with hidden villages. The lush
 hillsides of the Main Forest Ridge are awash with colourful flora and are home to
 an abundance of tropical wildlife and cascading waterfalls.


                                 Bacolet Bay
                                 A quiet and secluded beach in a small and stunning bay, this is the perfect place to come and really feel like
                                 you’re away from it all. The rolling waves and soft-sand fringed with classic coconut palms provide picture-
                                 postcard scenery. It’s sheltered enough to be great for swimming, but with enough energy in the sea to allow you
                                 to spend an enjoyable afternoon bodyboarding. To really help with that ‘getaway’ feeling, there’s no commercial
                                 activity on the beach, with all of the nightlife and dining being hotel-based.
                                 Journey time from airport: 20 minutes approx.




                                 Stonehaven Bay
                                 A mile-long sandy sweep framed by lush palms and emerald hills, Stonehaven Bay lies on the west coast and is
                                 renowned as a turtle beach – rare leatherback turtles come ashore here between April-September to lay eggs.
                                 The beach boasts an off-the-beaten-track air and is washed by sapphire seas. Laze on the sands, bathe, rent a
                                 kayak or even bodyboard the rollers. For a change, go diving or snorkelling around the nearby coral reefs, or, if
                                 you’re here in nesting season, tour the turtle hatching spots. At night, the tranquility is made for starlit dinners,
                                 although if you want, you’ll find rum bars and calypso in Black Rock.

                                 Crown Point
                                 More an area than a resort, it’s also home to Tobago’s airport, so you’ll be lounging on the sands in double-quick
                                 time. The nearest, at Stone Bay, has soft sands fringed with beach bars serving the island’s favourite crab-and-
                                 dumpling dishes, whilst nearby Pigeon Point offers breathtaking, white coral sands, ultramarine waters and a
                                 fabulous coral reef. Come sundown, Crown Point abounds with lively bars and restaurants, although on
                                 Sundays, everyone heads for nearby Buccoo Bay, where sizzling barbecue stalls and lilting steel bands play on
                                 the sands till late.
                                 Journey time from airport: 10 minutes approx.



                                 Great Courland Bay
                                 Forming a sweeping curve south of the town of Plymouth, Great Courland Bay has an attractive stretch of golden
                                 sands and is next door to Stone Haven Bay. Nearby attractions include Black Rock, where the ruins of Fort
                                 Bennett enjoy panoramic views across the local vicinity. Buccoo Reef, a little further south, provides easy access
                                 for divers and snorkellers and is home to Nylon Pool where the reef forms a lagoon no deeper than seven feet.
                                 The Grafton Caledonia Bird Sanctuary offers nature trails nearby and golfer’s can enjoy a round at the Mount
                                 Irvine Course.

                                      This historic hotel offers the chance to revisit the
                                      glamourous days of the 1950s, where movie stars and
                                      royalty were visitors. The well-equipped rooms each have
                                      their own balcony which look out over the ocean, and if you
                                      are looking for some relaxation, it will be a difficult choice
                                      between some pampering at the spa or simply lazing by the
                                      pool. The wonderful beach has a selection of watersports
                                      on offer, as well as a bar for some cooling refreshments in

 Experiences to remember…
 There are plenty of opportunities for an idyllic day out during your holiday in
 Jamaica. One that you’re sure to love is to drift along the Rio Grande on a
 bamboo raft, from the Blue Mountains through exotic plantations to
 Margaret’s Bay. Or for an excursion with a literary reference, take a boat trip
 to James Bond beach, where Ian Fleming wrote his famous novels.

 Something to treasure forever…
 Jamaican culture is wonderfully expressive, and there are plenty of local
 artists selling their wonderful paintings and sculptures in markets or in their
 studios. Pick up some wonderful souvenirs such as wood carvings or clothing
 at the street markets – a colourful display of both the red, green and gold
 synonymous with the country, and the local character. For an indulgent treat,
 splash out on some Blue Mountain coffee, a marvellous aroma and deep, rich
 exotic taste of luxury.

     Caribbean
        Sea




From the heights of Blue Mountain Peak, the verdant tropical hills of Jamaica fall
into a coastline crinkled with bays. Here the glossy green palms meet the intense
blue of the sea fringed by swathes of golden sand.


                         Montego Bay/Falmouth
                         Stacked with watersports and leisure facilities, Montego Bay is a busy, lively resort, and a very attractive one.
                         Coral gardens in crystal waters are edged with white sand beaches and backed by wooded hills. Falmouth has
                         been declared a National Monument by Jamaica’s Heritage Trust. Once a thriving port thanks to the sugar
                         plantations, it is now the capital of the Trelawny region of the island and its main market town.
                         Journey time from airport: 15 minutes approx. (Montego Bay)/45 mins approx (Falmouth)




                         Negril
                         Facing the setting sun, Negril’s ten kilometre long, glorious stretch of beach ends in cliffs and caves that are
                         great for snorkelling. The resort has a selection of low-rise hotels widely spread along the beach, where its bars
                         and night-life can be found. Here diving is extremely popular and close to nearby coral reefs and the Royal Palm
                         Reserve.
                         Journey time from airport: 2 hours approx.




                         Ocho Rios
                         The lively resort of Ocho Rios sits on the north coast. It is one of Jamaica’s most popular destinations and is the
                         port of call for many cruise ships. As a result bars, shopping centres and eateries line the streets. Further up the
                         coast (about 3km) visitors will find the more tranquil and picturesque Dunn’s River Falls, all 600ft of them
                         cascading onto a pretty beach with a protective reef.
                         Journey time from airport: 2 hours approx.




                         Runaway Bay
                         For those who prefer the quiet life Runaway Bay makes a superb base for relaxing on the beach and for
                         venturing out to nearby sights and attractions, including the Green Grotto and Runaway Caves with their
                         underwater lake. Hotel-based entertainment is the order of the day here, although shops and restaurants can be
                         found in the Salem area.
                         Journey time from airport: 1 hour 30 minutes approx.

 Experiences to remember…
 One of the best time of day during a safari is the dawn, and what better
 way to enjoy it than a heart-stopping sunrise balloon ride over the Masai
 Mara or Serengeti. At the other end of the day, relax on a romantic
 sunset cruise on the Indian Ocean in a traditional African dhow. For
 something a bit more energetic, go snorkelling to see the colourful
 creatures of Kenya’s beautiful coral reefs.

 Something to treasure forever…
 Kenya specialises in traditional handmade crafts, and there’s so much to
 choose from. Choices include traditional Lamu wood carvings, such as
 picture frames and miniatures, intricate beads, bracelets and jewellery
 made by Masai craftspeople, or brightly coloured ‘kikoi’ wraps, scarves
 and textiles. Wonderful traditional musical instruments are also delightful,
 such as traditional tribal drums and intricately carved siwa flutes.

Kenya’s attraction to worldwide travellers stems from its prolific wildlife and
stunning natural diversity. Home of the safari tradition and the most magical
wildlife arena on earth, the landscape offers a vision of Africa with eternal appeal


                      Diani Beach
                      With the stunning Shimba Hills National Park Reservation, and the idyllic stretch of beach at its doorstep, Diani
                      beach is justly popular. It is the most developed resort on the south coast, however its laid-back tropical appeal
                      remains timeless. The beach is sheltered and calm, ideal for children to swim, or else catch a boat and visit the
                      coral reef, which is ideal for snorkelling and diving. In the evening, entertainment and dining is mainly hotel-based,
                      with hotels offering a variety of entertainment for their guests, such as open-air discos, theme dinners, or live music.
                      Journey time from airport: 1 hour 30 minutes approx.




                      Malindi
                      A thriving tourist town, Malindi’s attractions are shops and holiday facilities, a Swahili quarter and a busy market,
                      with beaches extending north and south. The abundance of Italian influence here has lead to it becoming known as
                      the ‘Little Italy’ of Kenya. Offshore is the coral reef, part of the Malindi/Watamu Marine National Park, often thought
                      of as one of the best along the coast. NB. Diving in Malindi may not be available from May-July due to tides and
                      weather conditions.
                      Journey time from airport: 2 hours 30 minutes approx.




                      Bamburi Beach/Kikambala
                      Part of the reef-protected, white sand beach stretching north from Mombasa, Bamburi is some 14 kms from town.
                      Scuba-diving, snorkelling and glass bottom boat trips are available over the reef, along with other watersports. The
                      Hallas Nature Park is just south of the resort where you may spot hippos, crocodiles, pelicans, antelope and giant
                      tortoises. There are many western-style restaurants and plenty of discos. Kikambala forms the northern end of the
                      resort where life is very much centred around the beach.
                      Journey time from airport: 30 minutes approx.




                      Nyali Beach
                      Situated within a quiet upmarket area, ideal for those who want total relaxation and also convenient for the active
                      type with an 18-hole golf course, casinos and the crocodile sanctuary. Nyali is not too far from Mombasa, so it’s a
                      good choice if you want to explore this diverse city, and the beach is also popular as a retreat for the locals during
                      the weekends. Night-life is more low-key with Mombasa and Bamburi Beach nearby, however there are a selection
                      of international restaurants along with traditional eateries.
                      Journey time from airport: 20 minutes approx.

                                        from Benaulim - ‘Goa’s jewel’. This area, which includes the resorts of Cavelossim, Mobor Beach
                                        and Varca Beach, has a wealth of history and culture, from baroque churches to local bazaars.

      Making the Most of Your Stay
  Amazing sights...                                                                                    Excursions
  Being an island country made up of tiny atolls, it makes sense that many
                                                                                                       Each individual resort has its own excursion programme and prices
  of the most memorable sights are water-related. The Maldives offers
                                                                                                       vary from island to island. Excursions in the Maldives can range from
  some of the world’s best diving, so be sure to enjoy highlights such as
                                                                                                       deep-sea fishing, to snorkel trips to local island visits. Please see your
  turtles, shipwrecks, rays and reef sharks. Another not-to-be-missed
                                                                                                       hotel reception.
  opportunity is to ride a traditional dhoni fishing boat to see the
  unexplored beaches of tiny, uninhabited islets, and feel like Robinson
  Crusoe for real!

  Experiences to remember…
  Not only does The Maldives have wonderful beaches, there is also the
  vibrant local life on offer. Spend some time exploring Malé, with it’s
  colourful buildings, grand mosques and National museum. Otherwise, go
  island-hopping to experience authentic Maldivian villages. Traditional
  fishing on a dhoni boat is also a wonderful experience, and the traditional
  Maldivian cuisine with curry or lobster is fresh and delicious.

  Something to treasure forever…
  If you’re looking for the perfect beachwear then this is the place to come.
  Look for finely woven feyli sarongs that are made in Baa Atoll and other
  islands, or otherwise look for onyx ornaments, semi-precious local
  gemstones and lacquerware, or ‘thudu kuna’ – charming Maldivian mats
  woven from coconut leaves and reeds.
