There are, however, a fair share of island getaways in Africa where you can get that quintessential white sandy beach and palm tree photograph. The continent is home to some of the best beaches and island breaks in the world.

Each of these African island getaways have warm oceans, deep histories, friendly people and enough things to do to keep you there for a little longer than you might have expected.
