You’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re hunting for a beach destination for the upcoming October half-term holidays. Here are our top choices:

The ultimate beach destinations of Mauritius and the Maldives are perfect for sun, sea, sand and nature breaks. The One&Only Reethi Rah is a family favourite in the Maldives, loved for its Kid’s Club, teen programs and superb service.

October is the best time of year to visit Fiji, and this exotic destination in the Pacific Ocean just got a whole lot more accessible for Hong Kong residents with direct flights on Air Fiji.

While not exactly a beach destination, Northern Vietnam is beautiful at this time of year and you’ll get plenty of sun sailing through Halong Bay. Kayak through hidden caves, lagoons and visit unspoilt beaches in this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bali and Lombok in Indonesia are still enjoying good weather before their rainy winter months, and Sri Lanka’s southern coast is just moving into its peak season. Luxury villas in all of these destinations abound and they are the ideal way for families to get together and play, relax and enjoy some much deserved time together in complete privacy.

Lightfoot Travel specialises in tailor-made family holidays, honeymoons and short breaks to countries spanning six continents. Give us a call now for help planning your own bespoke October half-term holiday.
