Grab your bucket and spade, pack up your beach towel and book yourself into one of Chic Retreats' top small luxury hotels, boutique villas and B&Bs on the beach. Everyone loves a beach holiday and our collection of beach boutique hotels has a great selection of beachfront luxury villas, boutique casa’s on the coast and seaside B&Bs to suit every taste and budget.

If you want to stay close to home in the UK, our properties include the gorgeous Westcroft Guest House - a boutique B&B ideally positioned on the Cornish coast where you can enjoy the simple things in life such as long walks and lazy pub lunches - and The Urban Beach Hotel in Bournemouth, just five minutes’ walk from family-friendly Boscombe beach. In Scotland, there’s the Isle of Eriska Hotel Spa and Island in Argyll and Duisdale House Hotel on the Isle of Skye which are both surrounded by sea views. 

We also have plenty of beach boutique hotels in Europe, particularly Italy, France and Greece. Some, such as the Ambassador Palombaggia in unspoilt Corsica, are nearby a beautiful, private sandy bay with crystal-clear water and backed with pine trees. The Areti Bungalows in Chalkidiki, Greece has 2 private beaches where you can practice early morning yoga on the sand with views of nearby islands, swim and enjoy taking part in a range of watersports.

Meanwhile in Italy, you can blow the budget at fabulous JK Place, right next to the sea on Capri or the stunning Casa Angelina on the Amalfi Coast where there are views of the sea from almost every room and platforms with sun loungers and umbrellas arranged on a private section of rocks. When the sun gets too much, simply jump off the cliffs to cool down. In Portugal, honeymooners will love the Algarve setting of Vila Joya (its other draws include golf, tennis, a spa and a Michelin star restaurant); surfers should head to Cerca do Sul, a 7 room boutique B&B nearby the sandy beach of Costa Vicentina.

Further afield, our selection of beach boutique hotels covers countries as far-flung as BrazilMauritius and Tanzania.

Activities include fishing, kayaking, diving and snorkelling. For a romantic break, chill-out beachside at eco-friendly Zanzi Resort in Zanzibar, which has its own private stretch of sand.  Angsana Balaclava in Mauritius has a very private setting right on the beach with a fantastic spa and restaurant - Lulu's favourite boutique hotel in Mauritius.
