Sometimes, all you want from a holiday is a week or two spent lazing on the beach in the sun. There’s no bigger luxury than being able to wander through the grounds of your villa to the beach at the bottom of the garden, popping back for a long lunch or a siesta in the shade. Here are our top five beachfront villas, all located a very short stroll from stunning sandy stretches.
Set just back from the golden sands of Blue Flag-certified Salema Beach, Vista Mar is a stunning modern house with steps leading down through the pretty terraced gardens to the shore.
If you’re more the kind that likes to admire the beach view without getting sand in your sandals, the villa offers uninterrupted sea views from almost every room, and boasts a large roof terrace with an infinity pool, sun loungers and al fresco dining area overlooking the beach.
With a gate opening straight onto the pristine sands of Gibbs Beach, the only way you could stay closer to the beach than Westhaven would be to pitch a tent on the sand.
The shaded terrace is comfortably furnished and is the perfect place to admire the view while escaping the midday heat and the private pool provides a nice alternative to the warm Caribbean Sea. Included chef service means more time to enjoy on the beach.
What could be more luxurious than having your own private beach at the bottom of your private villa’s garden? Amanoka is the perfect place to get away from it all for a truly pampering retreat, with an infinity pool and Jacuzzi overlooking the seashore and a spa pavilion providing a peaceful space for treatments.
Even better, cook service is included, so you can relax in a hammock at the end of the jetty while dinner is prepared for you.
Just a very short walk from pretty Playa de Cala Molins and with incredible beach and sea views from the pool, gardens and terrace, Mar Azul is a lovely beachside villa in ever popular Mallorca.
Designed to take full advantage of its position, the terrace has an al fresco dining and lounge area where you can relax and take in the scenery, and with a cook providing breakfast and lunch and restaurants just a walk away in Cala San Vicente, you can really unwind.
A leisurely walk through the gardens at Barbati Beach House leads you to straight on to the sea shore where you can stroll on to shops and restaurants in Barbati around 1km away.
A shady dining terrace is perfectly placed for views right along the beach, while the pool terrace provides a more private area for swimming.
