Europe is beginning to come out of lockdown and in a few weeks, travelling for pleasure will be an option once again. However, no matter how much we wish the situation was different, our holidays this year will be different. It’s important to consider your options in a new light, so here are a few suggestions to make the most of your next summer holiday.
For those who can afford it, a private jet is the best way to travel, explore new places and relax in luxurious style. You’ll not only be saving time at the airport and getting your holiday off to a flying start, you’ll have easier access to some of the most remote parts of the world.
Naturally, due to its benefits, this style of travel has become a go-to for high-flyers, with an almost 50% increase in demand over the last year alone. And now, with the ever-changing prospects of the travel industry due to coronavirus, more travellers than ever will take to the skies on private charter planes.
For your next holiday, reap the benefits of a private flight with these stunning destinations…
The British Virgin Islands (BVI)
This collection of islands in the Caribbean is the holiday destination of the rich and famous for a reason. Picture white sandy beaches and coral reefs, submerged under dazzling blue waters. It sounds like the description of a postcard, but for holidaymakers on one of these tropical islands, it really is their reality.
This British overseas territory is made up of an island chain and sits alongside the neighbouring US Virgin Islands. Tortola is just one of the islands you could visit and it’s home to almost three-quarters of the population, along with some of the most famous beaches in the world.
Looking to tick some adventure activities off your bucket list? Tortola is known for its scuba diving, sailing and surfing, along with awe-inspiring views from hikes in the island’s parks. With so much to see and do in the British Virgin Islands, there’s no doubt that an island-hopping holiday is the only way to go – and with a private jet charter, it becomes so much easier.
Calling all beach lovers and nature enthusiasts! Seychelles is a beautiful archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean with clear turquoise waters and stunning beaches, ideal for a week in the lap of luxury.
Fregate is just one of the glorious islands in Seychelles, offering 5-star accommodation, so you can explore all the island has to offer during the day and sleep easy at night. As you make your way through the thick green envelopes of vegetation on the island, watch out for the Hawksbill turtles often see basking in the sunshine.
These coral islands sit over 1000 miles from the Tanzanian coast, making it the perfect secret getaway. While they might not be as glossy as the Maldives or as well-travelled as the British Virgin Islands, they’re a step off the beaten track and a chance to explore the wilder side of luxury.
Musha Cay – Bahamas
As one of the only privately rented islands in the world, it’s no surprise that those who are looking for a little more privacy have flocked to this island in recent years. Musha Cay is an island in the Bahamas owned by David Copperfield and sits in the Copperfield bay, surrounded by crystal clear ocean and tropical scenery.
The island, designed for you to be catered for, offers some of the best Caribbean cuisines alongside its lush vegetation landscapes. On Musha Cay, be prepared to see the day out with adventure sports such as deep-sea fishing and diving, along with outdoor theatre and cruises in private yachts and speed boats.
If islands aren’t for you, why not try the deepest part of the USA? Accessible only by private plane and by foot, Supai is a remote part of Arizona buried at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Experience true American culture as you distance yourself from the outside world and come into the home of the Havasupai Tribe, who have lived on the land for almost 1000 years.
The hike to the village isn’t for the faint-hearted, that’s for sure. But when you arrive, you’ll be greeted by awe-inspiring views of the famous waterfalls, seen by many but experienced by few. After a day discovering this earthly paradise, you’ll go to sleep under the pitch-black sky with only the stars for light.
