Offbeat Islands offers self-guided active and cultural adventures to unspoiled locations across the globe

Who is Offbeat Islands

Offbeat Islands is a small-sized, reliable travel company priding itself on personal contact as the key to giving you the unique holiday experience that you always wanted to plan one day, but never had the time to. We are the only travel company that offers trips to less travelled islands across the globe. We can take you to the unspoiled spots where few tourists go; the areas you can’t find in a guide book; hence you can fully take in their distinct culture and combination of sea, cliffs, wildlife and mountains.

The company was created by Ebo Visser, a passionate traveller. Wanderlust inspires him, keeps him young at heart and creates a rollercoaster of happy impulses by connecting to local people, travellers and nature everywhere in the world. Over the last 20 years he has travelled the planet extensively and encouraged friends and family to explore the beauty that the world has to offer. Ebo worked as a finance director in various industries like Travel, Engineering, Telecoms, Energy and Sports, but decided to follow his heart by setting up Offbeat Islands, in which he could share his passion, experience, energy and positiveness via the various trips offered.

Are you dreaming of an alternative to mainstream destinations? Let Offbeat Islands do the organising for you so you can just relax and enjoy your next adventure.
