Top 5 Holiday Places For Couples

Taking a holiday with your loved one can be a great way to reconnect and spend some quality time with one another. There are a huge number of top romantic spots around the world that you can indulge in whatever your passions and desires. Whether you’re looking for culture, for a beach paradise, or simply want a stunning retreat where you can stay in your hotel room for most of the trip, there are fantastic locations scattered across the world. And, if you’re considering such a trip away, there are spots that shouldn’t be overlooked.

1. Halong Bay, Vietnam
Whilst Vietnam may not instantly spring to mind as a romantic retreat, Halong Bay is often considered to be the world’s eight wonder and combines thousands of beautiful islands scattered through a stunning emerald sea. There are countless grottos and caves which you can explore and with legend saying that the paradise was carved by dragons, there is a mysterious and magical element to this stunning spot too.

2. Tahiti, French Polynesia
Like Halong Bay, French Polynesia consists of many islands, one of which is the glorious Tahiti. Just its name conjures images of paradise and decadence, and if you want somewhere truly romantic this is the place to head to. Beautiful thatched bungalows with the shimmering sea lapping at their doors are available for rent so that you only need to take a few steps to be immersed in beautiful scenery. With scuba diving and ray and shark feeding excursions there is also excitement should you wish for it.

3. Riviera Maya, Mexico
Mexico is a stunning spot for a romantic holiday and, away from the buzz of the city, has some truly glorious scenery to explore. You can utilise cheap car hire here to help you get around, giving you the freedom to travel when and where you want which is a luxury in itself. On the Riviera Mayo you’ll discover Caribbean waters lapping at the coast and the Yucatan ruins mysteriously enticing you into the jungle. There are also a large number of eco-tourist trips available if you want to explore the local flora and fauna in addition to spending time alone as a couple.

4. Santorini, Greece
Europe has some fantastic spots to indulge in and some of the most romantic are the Greek Isles. Iconic cuisine and the draw of mythology bring many people to Greece, and with additional stunning romantic scenery there isn’t much that Santorini doesn’t offer. There are four top islands to choose from including Santorini, Crete, Mykonos and Paros. If you want a party vibe then Mykonos is the place to head to, whilst Paros offers a slow and quiet pace. Crete meanwhile has stunning beaches and lots of history. But if you long for a place where beautiful sunsets and romantic scenery set the mood, Santorini should be your pick.

5. Venice, Italy
One of the most romantic places in the world, Venice is filled with Gondola rides, exploring architecture and falling in love. Flowers shower down from balconies and Gondola’s provide the perfect place for love, especially if you follow tradition and kiss under every bridge. And exploring this lagoon city will leave you feeling more than a little in love with both the city and your companion.
