The Indian Ocean is the third largest ocean in the world and it is home to some of the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations.

To the east lies Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia, to the north is India and the Arabian Peninsula and the west of the ocean is bordered by Africa. In the middle of the Indian Ocean lies some of the world’s most breath-taking tropical islands such as the Maldives, the Seychelles and Mauritius.

When people think of tropical island paradises the images that come to mind are sandy beaches, lush greenery and clear blue waters and these are what you will find in the Indian Ocean. If you are looking for sunshine you will not be disappointed, the Indian Ocean is the world’s warmest ocean and the sun shines almost all year round, though there is a rainy season so check in advance to ensure you visit when the sun is shining.

The grand Indian Ocean is home to an enormous amount of sights to see and things to do. From exploring some of the world’s most unique biodiversity in Madagascar to sampling delicious teas in Sri Lanka, there is something to suit all travellers. Beach babes and surfers don’t fret about things to do in the Indian Ocean; there are plenty of beaches to revel in, waves to surf, and reefs to explore with a snorkel and flippers.

One of the best ways to explore the beautiful islands and coastlines of the Indian Ocean is by boat and this is an excellent thing to do as a family. There are a large number of boat trips available such as those around the Maldives Island or along the coast of India. Many of the islands and countries in the Ocean have areas protected in nature reserves, these are a great place to explore and many are often home to some endangered wildlife. On most of the islands of the Indian Ocean there are plenty of opportunities for visitors to try out some water sports like water-skiing or paragliding.



Beaches on the islands of the Indian Ocean have to be among the most beautiful in the world. The water is clear and bright blue and there are some just stunning beaches everywhere you look. Whether it is the famous hang outs in Goa or some tropical beaches in Mozambique, you’ll find what you want. Goa has become a major backpacking destination because of its glorious sandy beaches stretching into the distance, the major beaches are fairly saturated with tourists now but they are still beautiful. Try beaches on the north of Goa rather than the famous Palolem Beach for white sand beaches surrounded by coconut palms. Kenya has some beautiful beaches with calm waters and the tropical beaches of Madagascar next to rainforests are spectacular.

Of all the things to do in the Indian Ocean, relaxing on the tranquil beaches and just taking a breath of fresh air is one of the most satisfying. For the ultimate tropical retreat, venture to an island of the Maldives – one of the several hundred – and just bask in the sun. Take to Unawatuna in Sri Lanka, a beach home to turquoise waters and one of the more popular places in the south of the island. Also in Sri Lanka is the famous Temple of the Scared Tooth Relic, a beautiful Buddhist temple located in Kandy. Wherever you find yourself in the Indian Ocean, you are sure to find a quiet beach and comfortable spa to sit back and relax in.
