Authentic travel to unspoilt destinations

Why Shearwater Travel?

Shearwater Travel is an independent travel agency providing trusted travel advice.  We put together holidays which give you a real sense of the country you are visiting, allowing you to experience all the destination has to offer whilst avoiding the busy tourist hotspots.  We take you to the unmissable sights but also the lesser known ones.  We want you to have an authentic holiday which creates unforgettable memories. 

Like many of our clients, we like to stay active on holiday.  In particular, we like to walk.  Partly because we love the exercise but also because it brings us closer to the country, landscape and people.  So we include a number of destinations with great walking opportunities and other activities. Select About Us to find out more about how we do this. 

As the world begins to open up post-pandemic keep in touch with latest developments in international tourism with Shearwater Travel’s weekly travel bulletin covering changes to UK travel restrictions, destinations opening up to UK travellers, how to book safely and some inspiration for your next trip.   

Nicola organised a half term trip for us to Portugal. It all went like clockwork and we had a lovely break in a really nice hotel. She gave us some good advice re testing and made sure we had all the instructions we needed beforehand. Highly recommended!
