Those who dream of holidaying or honeymooning on a tropical island paradise will be captivated by the beauty and tranquillity of the many exotic islands dotted around the world's seas and oceans. Here, we round up the best of these islands with easy access on flights from the UK.

The Indian Ocean is home to some of the most exquisite islands on the planet and the stuff that paradise is made of...


Mauritius has a wealth of attractions including white sand beaches, luxury spas, golf courses, the world's third largest coral reef and a variety of luxury hotels. The landscape and history of the island is defined by the sugar cane plantations that still provide a major source of income.
Charter flights from Gatwick add to the existing non-stop flights from London. 

Sri Lanka, just south of India, is a small island that is big on historical attractions, holy sites and natural beauty, including exotic birds, animals and marine life. Visitors to Sri Lanka will find white sandy beaches, more than 100 waterfalls, and a contrast between busy, bustling cities and pretty, peaceful towns. And don't forget the famous elephants, tea plantations and temples.

Also located in the Indian Ocean are the 115 islands of the Seychelles. Renowned for beautiful beaches and crystal-clear turquoise seas, the Seychelles has a wealth of fauna and flora including rare plants. This really is a bird watching paradise due to the huge colonies of nesting seabirds.

The Maldives, located south of India, comprises a network of more than 1,100 tiny islands. They are some the most easily accessible islands in the Indian Ocean, with direct charter flights from the UK, as well as both direct scheduled flights and connecting flights via the Middle East. Although 200 of the islands are inhabited, only around 90 have been developed as exclusive holiday resorts that are ideal for rest and relaxation, with visitors enjoying aquatic activities such as diving, snorkelling and surfing. You will really feel you have escaped to your own island paradise if you pick your island carefully.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
