Dreaming of spending several weeks (or even months) surrounded by nothing but sand, sea and sun? Perched right on the edge of the soft white sand, these ten dreamy villas take beachfront living to the next level. Just a few steps away from the ocean and with breathtaking sea views from every angle, these beach destinations are truly paradise on earth.
Start your day with spectacular sunrises, watching from bed as the sky and sea are painted myriad shades of gold, pink, coral and scarlet. Spend the day basking in the balmy sun, collecting shells along the icing-sugar shore or admiring the endless treasures hidden beneath the waves. Toast the day with beachside cocktails at sundown, before dining al fresco at a table set up on the soft sand. While away the rest of the evening sipping drinks and listening to music underneath the twinkling stars, before falling asleep to the calming melody of gently lapping waves. There really is nothing better than being beside the seaside - especially in these idyllic vacation spots...
You’ll certainly start seeing life from a whole new point of view at this aptly-named villa, nestled on the white sugar shores on the isle of Grand Cayman. Step off Point of View's terrace and find your feet sinking straight into the soft white sand. A few steps further will take you to the sparkling azure ocean, where you can take a leisurely swim, enjoying the endless scenic surrounds of South Sounds as you glide over the gentle waves.
The perfect spot for a fun-filled family holiday, Canoe Cove just couldn’t be closer to the sea. If you’re feeling energetic, grab one of the villa’s namesake canoes and head out for a day of exploring the beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, delicate coral reef and colourful marine life for which the island is famous. If relaxation is first on your agenda then settle on a comfy sun lounger next to the pool and watch as the waves kiss the shore just metres away.
Thanks to the abundance of palm trees and private dock, Les Jalousies offers a secluded and magic getaway. The pool deck is a highlight and there’s also a spacious covered terrace. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to spaces where you can laze in the sunshine – take your pick from loungers on the beach, swinging benches and hammocks. With a long stretch of white sand to explore and an abundance of coral reefs on its calm waters, this is the seaside sanctuary you’ve always dreamed of.
Enjoy endless ocean views from every angle at the gorgeous Casa de la Playa. Nestled on one of St Martin’s loveliest beach destinations, this elegant five-bedroom villa leisurely stretches out towards the sand, making you feel as though you could swim directly into the Caribbean Sea from the infinity pool. And it’s not just the seascape that’s spectacular: on a good day, you’ll be able to glimpse the neighbouring islands and beach destinations of Saba, St Eustatius and St Kitts from your favourite spot in the pool.
Jamaica is full of breathtaking beach destinations. Embrace nature’s beauty in all its glory at the magnificent Malatai villa in Jamaica. Wander the magnificent grounds, passing by the rustling trees, koi and lily pond, hot tub and lush lawn to make your way onto the silky sands of Old Fort Bay. After a busy day relaxing, fire up the barbeque on the teak deck and enjoy sundowners overlooking the ocean, before tucking into the sizzling catch of the day.
White Cottage in Grand Cayman is truly barefoot beach living at its finest. Infusing a traditional beach cottage with a touch of modern elegance, the interiors of the villa are light-filled, sleek and spacious. However, you’ll find the true magic of White Cottage outside. Encircled by shimmering white sands, gently swaying palm trees and verdant tropical foliage, the villa exists in complete harmony with its surroundings. So much so that it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Prefer the peace and quiet of secluded beaches? Feel your cares and worries melt away as you enter On the Rocks Villa, a magnificent beachfront villa located on the edge of the picturesque Chalk Sound National Park. This delightful waterfront villa is the perfect retreat for families who want both style and comfort in equal measures.
