Why take a beach or island break?
There's much more to beach or island life than just topping up your tan. You can swim, surf, snorkel or scuba dive from beautiful beaches everywhere, or go on brilliant boat tours. You can volunteer with wildlife along the coast, including sea turtles or as a marine conservation volunteer. You can get away from it all on unspoilt islands, enjoy lively beach parties or even find a paid job by the beach!
