Where to go in October

September 15, 2016

We’ve welcomed the return of autumn with open arms but there is a distinct chill in the mornings and the evenings are certainly becoming darker. What better time to think about a winter break! Here are our top ten suggestions for where to go in October. As with any holiday, research your trip before you book to ensure you get the most out of it. Some attractions may close earlier so plan your itinerary before you travel.

With its lagoons, beaches and coral reefs, the volcanic island of Mauritius offers lots to do from the Safari and Bird Park, the Giant Tortoise Park and Vallée des Couleurs to the Kids Adventure Park, Ile Aux Aigrettes Island and Château de Labourdonnais.

Family breaks in Mauritius with Turquoise Holidays

Turquoise Holidays is one of a kind. The team’s passion for the destinations they cover is exceptional with their recommendations based on first hand experience.

The tranquility of Tikehau in the Tuamotu Islands meant we were quick to relax by our beach bungalow. By contrast, Moorea (Mo’orea) in the Society Islands enabled us to do as little or as much as we wanted. The quiet times saw us enjoy magnificent views of the lagoon from our overwater bungalow while feeding tropical fish. Our adventurous side involved swimming with sharks, stroking stingrays and attempting Tahitian dancing. We may have had a few too many with the locals too.

An underwater paradise on Pemba Island

January 5, 2016

One of the things I loved about our Tahitian honeymoon was the overwater bungalow. You barely had to step out of your room to be knee deep in a lagoon where you fed tropical fish bread from your hand. But what if you could encapsulate yourself in a turquoise bubble and watch fish swimming round from an underwater room. It’s an innovative concept isn’t it?
