Even though Valentine’s Day has passed, it’s never too late to plan your mini vacation with your significant other. But with so many choices, it can be hard to decide on which destination to spend a week or weekend in.
So to make things a little easier, we’ve selected the top five most romantic getaways where the two of you can relax and enjoy each other, and the scenery surrounding you.
Marigot Bay, St. Lucia
St. Lucia’s luxurious resorts and lavish beaches are a couple’s dream escape.
Book a few nights at Marigot Bay Resort, and enjoy a couples massage, a swim in the infinity pools, and drinks at the two poolside bars. Once you’re ready to explore, take a private island tour where the both of you can swim under a waterfall. Or, take a few hours to visit Pigeon Island National Park to learn about the history of the area, relax at a cafe as you gaze out into the horizon, or visit the various forts located on this massive 40-acre island.
In the evening, you two can take a cruise around the islands, or relax on the beach under a cabana as you enjoy a private meal for two.
St. Vincent & The Grenadines
This romantic getaway is a beach lover’s paradise. St. Vincent and The Grenadines is full of adventure for those who love to be on the sand, as well as those who love to swim in the ocean. From scuba diving and snorkeling to sailing and tanning, St. Vincent and The Grenadines has become a prime destination for the luxury seekers.
Aside from the beach and swimming with turtles, St. Vincent offers visitors a 20-acre Botanic Garden park, remote islands for ultimate privacy, and a capital city (Kingstown) that will transport you back a few centuries. With its cobblestones and bustling harbor, Kingstown is the city to explore, shop for souvenirs, and eat fresh fruit from the market.
If the beach is not the type of romantic getaway you’re looking for, then Seville, Spain may be it. The city is an architectural masterpiece, where streets are lined with violet jacarandas and orange trees, ceramic tiles, and structures such as Seville Cathedral and Alcazar Palace that have influences of various cultures.
For those who are seeking romance, sign up for a flamenco class in the morning, cruise along the river during the day, and enjoy a candlelight dinner at night. Don’t leave without visiting the famous Barrio Santa Cruz where you can drink amazing sangria, and munch on fresh churros dipped in chocolate.
Has Africa ever been on your list of destinations? If yes, then you’ll love Seychelles, a group of 115 islands located in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa.
This destination has become a romantic getaway for couples from all over the world, thanks to its powder-soft white sand, and premier sleeping arrangements like the Four Seasons’ treehouse-like villas. Those who are looking to do more than just sit at the beach can book a private charter to go island hopping, visit Vallée de Mai (a World Heritage site), shop in Victoria’s market, and dine in a colonial mansion at a restaurant called Marie-Antoinette.
Central America is just as romantic, especially Granada, Nicaragua, with its deep history, old culture, and friendly people. It’s the oldest city in Central America, which means you can find some fascinating architecture, dynamic cafes, authentic shops, and horse-drawn carriages all over the city. Who said you need to be by a beach to experience romance? And for those who are wanting to step outside Granada’s streets can take a boat tour to some of the 365 small islands situated in Lake Nicaragua, or even take a trip to Masaya Volcano and see a bubbling area of lava up close.
