Sparkling waters, breathtaking sunsets and beaches both dynamic and deserted
The many countries that make up the vast continent of Asia contrast greatly with one another, creating a mosaic of cultures, cuisines and character. A constant favourite for Australian holidaymakers, Indonesia's Bali is a hub of sand and surf from the vibrancy of Kuta, the upmarket sway of Seminyak and the tranquillity of Pantai Geger. Whether you are planning a private beachside honeymoon or a seaside schoolies adventure, Bali does not disappoint.
If you can't decide between a quiet island escape and all-in revelry, Thailand's Ko Pha Ngan offers the best of both worlds. Home to the infamous full moon party, the island is also blessed with small coves perfect for lazy days filled with nothing but sand and sunshine. Thailand's largest island, Phuket, is rich with picturesque coastline and offers intimate snorkelling and diving in the sparkling waters of twin islands Ko Racha Yai and Ko Racha Noi. While it is often touted as a top skiing destination, Japan also adds stunning beaches to its repertoire of natural beauty. This includes the small but spectacular Zamami off Okinawa which is especially popular for kayaking and whale watching.
It is no exaggeration to say you are spoiled for choice when it comes to island and beach holidays in Asia. In Malaysia, watch Macaque monkeys at play in Dungun, take in the breathtaking sunsets on Pangkor Island or find serenity in the deep, clear waters of Tanjung Rhu. Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, India and the Philippines also throw their hats into the ring with palm-fringed coast and beaches both dynamic and deserted.
