While it may be true that everyone’s idea of romantic travel is different, sun, sand, and sea are universal languages. Here is a look at some of the most romantic beach destinations for your holiday.
Bournemouth, the United Kingdom
The seaside resort of Bournemouth is renowned for its pleasure pier, Victorian architecture and the 11.2 km of beaches. The bay is nestled beneath a spectacular cliff line and has some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK and amazing views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks.
Bournemouth is a fantastic location, the only place in England and Wales where people can even have the legal wedding ceremony right on the sand. Chalk formations and the clear water provide a perfect backdrop for photos.
Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda
Horseshoe Bay Beach is a long curved stretch of pale pink sand set against brilliant blue Atlantic waters. While this is Bermuda’s most famous beach, and likely the most photographed due to its captivating beauty, there are a number of secluded coves that are ideal for a romantic vacation. You’ll also find fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy a spectacular sunset, sipping champagne and indulging in fabulous local fare like Bermudian rockfish.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s most popular destinations, with year-round sunshine, amazing views and some of the best food you will ever have.
There is a variety of venues from which to choose. The town of Amalfi is an idyllic setting, dominated by a cathedral with imposing stairs and panoramic views. Ravello sits high in the hills above the Tyrrhenian Sea, Sorrento is a busy town straddling the cliffs overlooking the water to Naples and Mt Vesuvius. And finally Positano, which is arguably the most inspiring place in Amalfi, this unique town is positioned on a steep hillside with the beach and the Mediterranean Sea far below.
As a romantic holiday location, Slovenia is an ideal place. This is the only country in the world with the word “love” in its name, which is surely a good omen. Portorož has beautiful beaches and spectacular views from its hills. When the weather is clear, you can see the outline of the Venetian lagoon in the west and in the north, above the Gulf of Trieste, you can see the Alps.
Gozo Island, Malta
Gozo is one of the top diving destinations in the Mediterranean and has many churches for such a small island. Id-Dwejra bay is home to the famous “Azure Window”, a limestone natural arch featured in all the tourist guides. In Victoria (called Rabat by the Maltese people), the largest town in Gozo, the medieval citadel houses a Baroque cathedral beautifully decorated with a trompe-l’œil painting on the dome. Xagħra is the island’s second largest town and possibly the earliest inhabited part of Gozo being home to the Ġgantija temples, the Xagħra Stone Circle and the underground caves Xerri’s Grotto and Ninu’s Cave.Return
