Traveling with your spouse is the best way to show love and even increase the bond between the two of you. You get to spend quality time as you explore the beauty of different destinations you are visiting. Besides bonding and enjoying each other’s company traveling together also helps you learn more about each other.
While you can go anywhere with your spouse and make it a paradise, there is no doubt there are some specific destinations that offer more romantic vibes and are best enjoyed with your better half. Here are some of the best destinations that you and your sweetheart should visit one of these days.
Santorini is the most popular destination for newlyweds. It boasts breathtaking sights, rich history and culture, unique cuisine, and stunning sunsets perfect for those romantic moments.
If you choose Santorini as your romantic getaway, get ready to be blown away by the beautiful deep blue seas against bright white walls. If you enjoy wine, fine wineries around the island offer a memorable wine tasting experience of Greece’s best wine.
You can also explore the ruins at ancient Akrotiri and Ancient Thira after enjoying the breathtaking red and black sand beaches. While on the beach, you can also book a romantic catamaran cruise around the island for an intimate experience.
To get even more out of Greece, ensure you also travel to the other smaller islands that are not so popular such as the white sand beaches or Folegandros and the black cliffs. If you are looking to enjoy some time with the locals, you can visit the village of Karavatsase and stay at the Elies resort where you can have some sweet alone time as a couple.
Remember to carry your camera to take some videos and photos for memories. To move easily around the island, get a weekender bag to pack your daily essentials, such as the camera, sunscreen, phone, etc.
Columbia’s delectable cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and therapeutic wellness activities make this place among the most romantic places you can ever visit with your better half. Cartagena is an awesome place to celebrate your romance by enjoying the local cuisine at the restaurants, which are colored by beautiful pastel buildings.
While at Cartagena, don’t forget to check out their most kept secret, the El Boliche Cebicheria, which serves unique local Columbian fish dishes. Then after that beautiful meal with your spouse, take a stroll around the city and get to experience and learn all about the city’s colonial history.
Other places that will make it a memorable experience in Columbia are the Corocora camp in the Lianos. The campsite is a fantastic place to have the perfect intimate getaway. While you are there, you can rent a 4by4 and go offroading, hiking, horseback riding, bird watching, or even herding cattle.
The beautiful island of Bora Bora also makes it to our list of great romantic world destinations. The area boasts gorgeous sceneries filled with sunny skies, luxurious resorts, warm waters, and friendly locals. Bora Bora island is the kind of place where you don’t want to leave once you land. However, this little slice of heaven can be pricey, but every penny you spend with your better half there is well worth it.
If you are a more outgoing couple, you can explore some of the island’s marine wildlife by snorkeling or deep diving. You can also hike up Mount Otemanu and visit the main port of Vaitape.
For the evenings where you are looking for a less exciting experience, you can enjoy some intimate moments from the decks of an overwater bungalow where you can admire the scenic beauty of the lagoon. Another idea for the perfect afternoon date on the island is to rent a bike and take a tour around the city with your better half.
Another romantic destination you must visit as a couple is the Maldives, a small nation of islands southwest of Sri Lanka. The beautiful islands present the perfect destination for a romantic spot for lovebirds who enjoy time at the beach with pristine white sands, magnificent sunsets, and clear waters.
One of the islands, the Soneva Fushi Island, presents a perfect haven where you can even walk on the beach barefoot and enjoy some intimate moments with a private butler who is at your beck and call. You can try out a few other luxury accommodations, the bohemian-themed Joali hotel, and the Kudadoo Private Island.
Another option for couples who are not looking to stay in hotels can also book the coral walled homes, which offer more privacy. Wherever you choose to stay, don’t forget to sample the variety of seafood cuisine they provide on the island.
It is not called the city of love for nothing. Paris is a paradise for lovebirds who want to spend some precious time together and affirm their love and commitment to each other.
Enjoy time together, taking a brisk walk along the picturesque cobblestone streets with coffee shops lining the streets on either side. Also, get to see the Eiffel Tower, which is a must when in Paris, and the Pont Des Arts bridge outside Notre Dame. If you are in the city around summertime, fall or spring, skip the taxis and enjoy a bike ride around the city.
For your stay, choose any of the various luxurious hotels available, depending on your budget. Museum hopping is the perfect activity if you happen to be there during the colder months. So ensure you stay warm with your loved one by your side as you tour the different museums in the city.
Remember to sample the different cuisines available in the city and socialize with the locals. You can learn a few words from one of the most romantic languages in the world.
This is not an exhaustive list of all the romantic places but just a few that should give you an idea of where you can go on your next romantic getaway with your better half.
