Beach in Middle East & North Africa
Our favourite luxury beach holidays in the Middle East
Blessed with countries that border the Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, and the Persian Gulf, the Middle East is home to many postcard-perfect beach destinations. Be it bustling seaside cities or quaint coastal towns; whether you’re looking for a quiet spot for some relaxation or a beach filled with activities, Lightfoot Travel can recommend the best beach holidays within the region.
For thrill-seekers, try kite-surfing in Dubai, diving in the waters of the Turkish Riviera, or cave-exploring in Oman. Combine rest with rejuvenation at Jordan’s beachside retreats, with spas utilising mineral-rich waters and mud from the Dead Sea.
Facing the Atlantic on its west and the Mediterranean on the east, Morocco’s extensive coastline offers a succession of blue and white citadels, small fishing villages and wild sandy beaches. Go kite surfing in Essaouira, sailing in Agadir, or fishing in Oualidia.
