There’s always room for one more bikini in our luggage and for one in our handbag just in case there’s a chance for a dip. We discovered these hand painted bikinis at Las Dalias Market in Ibiza. Each piece is like an art work and only one of a kind. They fit like a second skin, as they have no seams, elastics, or ties and since 2016 have adopted an eco-friendly material.Read more click here to purchase or get more information

Every year we adopt a turtle hatchling to thank all of Karvansarai's Travellers for their continued support. Rather than flooding inboxes or cutting down trees and creating waste with generic corporate holiday cards we wish you the best for the holidays with this symbolic gesture from the beaches of our company headquarters. Boca Raton gets hundreds of sea turtle nests annually between March and November from three species; loggerheads, greens, and leatherbacks. All three of these species are found on the endangered species list. When a nest hatches on our local beach, Gumbo Limbo's Marine Turtle Specialists place special marks on the nest and three days later, excavate the nest to document important details of the hatchout. Sometimes, while excavating, the Marine Turtle Specialists find live hatchlings. These hatchlings are taken back to Gumbo Limbo where they are either released on the beach that same night, or put in a “swimmer” tank and released by boat on the weed line in the Gulf Stream.Read more click here to purchase or get more information
