So you and your partner are thinking of traveling together to a romantic getaway. When it comes to real relationships, there’s a lot to consider than just your personal chemistry. Whether you’ve been with someone for months or years, as a couple, both of you can benefit from a relaxing vacation alone. However, for most couples, a week-long escape to a remote island isn’t always in the cards between the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes, a nice weekend is just what you need. You have to remember that a vacation is a journey that you plan together but don’t have complete control over. It includes choices and decisions about interests, feelings, and money, so it would actually reveal how your relationship works and if it has long-term potential.
Probably that both of you are testing out the waters, or wishing to instantly spice things up for a few days with your sweetheart. It doesn’t matter what reasons you have, a weekend getaway is a brief, sweet, and an ideal recharge. In this article, we are going to share with our favorite romantic travel destinations for every type of person.
Couples Who Love the Cold: Sun Valley, Idaho
If both of you love the idea of skiing and ice skating during winter, then you would definitely enjoy that sport in a picturesque mountain town situated at top of the Rocky. It’s one of the first ski resorts in the United States and a historic spot as well. After skiing, you may head to a remarkable and recently redone Spa at Sun Valley which is always open for some aprés-ski couples’ massage.
In the summer, you can also do hiking and fishing. And if you get hungry after a long, active day, you may visit the Ketchum Grill, for delicious food in a cottage setting. Their restaurant will make you feel like you are traveling through time, and you may most likely put your phone away for a great time with your special someone.
Couples Who Love the Outdoors: Copenhagen, Denmark
Denmark is best explored on two wheels since it has more than 10,000 kilometers (around 6,200 miles) of marked bicycle routes and mostly flat terrain. You can take your special someone on romantic biking along the 7,314 kilometers of coastline and rest up at one of the many nature campsites or just fly into Aarhus, which includes bus service to drop off passengers to the railway station.
Once you’re there, you can easily find bike rentals, and the Open Air Museum is a short ride away. It has 0.34 square kilometers of land to travel around and shows Denmark as it was in the 1600s to the 1900s. We definitely recommend going on picnics, so get a bike with a basket. If both of you have the stamina, you can ride a bike from Aarhus to Copenhagen. However, if you are jelly-legged, you may catch the train instead. Upon arriving in Copenhagen, try biking by The Little Mermaid statue in Langelinie and then go south to visit the Gefion Fountain in the Nordre Toldbod area, and why not make a wish?
Aside from biking, there are other interesting activities around Copenhagen such as the Tivoli Gardens, known to be the city’s most famous amusement park with the world’s tallest carousel, The Star Flyer, the Pantomime Theatre and several outdoor scenes with live music, as well as fireworks displays at night also belong to Copenhagen’s offerings.
Couples Who Love Privacy: New South Wales, Australia
For couples who want an ultra-private romantic getaway as if it feels like the two of you are the only people in the world, take your vacation at one of the beautiful rainforests of New South Wales, Australia. Have a romantic time with your partner at Kims Beachside Retreat that will surely let you experience the Australian rainforest, including deluxe individual timber bungalows, spa villas, and an amazing view of Toowoon Bay.
It’s the main location of only over an hour’s drive from Sydney NSW, Kims are one of the most famous accommodations in the Central Coast. This retreat is a great way to escape from the city rush.
Couples Who Love to Party: Goa, India
Usually referred to as the Ibiza of South Asia, Goa is not only a lovely party destination, it’s also a special one. Goa, a former Portuguese colony, is renowned for its stunning beaches, mouthwatering local cuisine and vivid open-air markets, hosts some of the biggest parties on an almost everyday basis. During the summer, you can even choose from 24-hour psychedelic beach raves and dance parties under neon palm trees to drinking in little beach shacks or calling on lady luck to test your chances in an open-air beachfront casino. It doesn’t matter what kind of vibe you prefer, there are limitless opportunities to have your groove on in Goa.
If the two of you are looking for most epic parties, head to Baga, Morjim or Ashwem Beach in North Goa, where you can find plenty of bars and restaurants open until 4 AM in the morning! You will definitely have to walk off that hangover.
If you’re looking for a way to take a break from the legendary nightlife, make sure that you visit the many old, classic churches; and ride a romantic houseboat; or shop till you drop at Anjuna Flea Market—one of the most popular markets in the world.
Couples Who Love the Beach: Mahé, Seychelles
Want a more underrated destination? Give up the crowds and go for a temporary sunny stay in Mahé— the biggest island of Seychelles where your romantic getaway will have you and your partner transported to your own private island. Just like those romantic movies scenes, the ones where actors walk hand-in-hand on pristine beaches looking out at the spotless, quietest blue waters with lush-green mountain peaks in the surrounding and the night ends with a private bonfire of freshly grilled delicacies made by locals who drink, sing and dance the evening away. These things don’t only exist in movies, Mahé is the real-life version of this fantasy.
Not only that, but its particolored, blue waters surrounding the island are also definitely going to change what you think “crystal clear” looks like. It’s the place for all kinds of beach-bums—all without needing to worry about crowds when you and your loved one are perfectly soaked up in rays and romance.
Couples Who Love Food: San Sebastian, Spain
San Sebastian is well-recognized as one of the crown jewels of Spain for tourism, this colonial Country beach town holds 18 Michelin Stars within a twenty-five-kilometer radius. If you think of it, that’s more Michelin Stars per square meter than other famous epicurean cities such as Paris and New York City.
Aside from the drooling delicacies, dishes, and treats that San Sebastian can offer, it’s also home to everything you could ask for, including their awe-inspiring architecture, and amazing beaches.
