Top 10 Most Romantic Destinations in the World

Departing from
Departure month

Whether you’re on your honeymoon or just want a romantic holiday where you can rekindle your love, there are plenty of places around the world that are bound to set the scene. We’ve put together a selection of destinations that are ideal for Valentine’s Day, a surprise getaway, or simply for spending some time away with your special someone

1 & 2. Verona and Venice

We couldn’t choose between these two iconic cities, so we chose both! Famous as the setting for Shakespeare’s most famous play (Romeo and Juliet), Verona is full of pretty piazzas, labyrinthine lanes, and a 13th century house boasting the ‘famous balcony’ that is said to have belonged to Juliet. Just an hour and a half’s drive from Verona lies the iconic city of Venice where you can enjoy soothing gondola rides with your loved one, get lost in the cobbled alleyways or watch a romantic opera. So, if you want a really romantic getaway then a Venice and Verona twin break may just tick all the boxes.

3. Maldives

A unique setting, luxury hotels, stunning beaches and a colourful underwater world all put the Maldives firmly on the romantic destinations list. A popular honeymoon destination, holidays in the Maldives are all about getting back to nature, unwinding and spending time with your someone special. Relaxing on the beach all day not your thing? The Maldives boasts some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world and the clear water is so warm that you don’t even need a wetsuit.

4. Bruges

Belgium’s medieval, fairy-tale town is one of Europe’s most well-preserved cities and is a honeypot for couples looking for a romantic break away. Charming cobbled streets and sunlit canals link quaint chocolate shops, pretty churches and inviting market squares. During the spring when the flowers are in bloom, Bruges is particularly scenic and it’s a good time to visit the 18th and 19th-century windmills that line the north-eastern side of the city. 

5. Zanzibar

With its white sand beaches, clear turquoise waters and laid-back atmosphere, it’s easy to see why the island of Zanzibar makes the cut in the romance stakes. This dreamy archipelago, around 40 miles from Tanzania also boasts a unique culture (expect to see trendy tribesmen on the beaches)and a fascinating blend of East Africa and Indian Ocean roots. Activities include exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town, treating your senses to a spice tour, and exploring the island’s incredible marine life.For the ultimate romantic getaway, opt for an all inclusive Zanzibar escape, then spend your days relaxing on the beach, taking life easy and enjoying the island vibes.

6. Paris

France’s stylish capital with its beautiful architecture, sleek residents, rich foods and emotive art scene has long been associated with romance. Romantic outings with your loved one include taking in the wonderful views from the Eiffel Tower, enjoying a sunset cruise on the Seine, and enjoying a classic cabaret show at the Moulin Rouge. Paris is also brimming with incredible restaurants some of which offer spectacular views of Paris - perfect for a romantic dinner. 

7. Mauritius

Immaculate beaches, the chance to spot dolphins, a lush National Park and tasty fusion food make Mauritius a great choice for a romantic getaway. The island also has a plethora of luxurious beach hotels and holidays in Mauritius often involve a lot of lounging around with cocktail in-hand. For those who do want to venture beyond the beach, you can feel like a celebrity with a speedboat tour, marvel at marine-life on a glass-bottom boat, or explore the stunning Black River Gorges National Park which boasts a Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor. You’ll soon discover why Mauritius has been dubbed ‘paradise island’. 

8. Dominican Republic

Renowned for its beautiful beaches, stunning mountain scenery and grand colonial architecture, the Dominican Republic is a popular destination with couples. The crystal-clear waters and luxurious hotels in Punta Cana are a must-see for beach fans, and all inclusive Dominican Republic holidays are a great option for couples who want to unwind and spend some quality time together. For romantic day trips, you’ll find stunning National Parks with waterfalls, whale spotting trips and horseback riding.

9. Vietnam

With its staggering natural beauty, exotic landscapes and historic towns, there is something undoubtedly romantic about Vietnam. Some of its romantic highlights include delightful Hoi-An, home to an ancient riverside town boasting UNESCO status, and the UNESCO site of Halong Bay, where couples can cruise turquoise waters filled with hundreds of limestone islands jutting out of the water. If you want to put your feet up during your tour of Vietnam then the country also has plenty of spas - maybe unwind with a couples massage after a day of sightseeing?


Postcard beaches, evocative temples, a relaxed island vibe and dramatic mountain scenery, give Bali its romance. Most couples choose a beach holiday in Bali which can be combined with trips to other parts of the island, such as lush Ubud which is home to woven rice paddies and mountain backdrops. You can also enjoy an array of watersports when you’re not sipping cocktails by the pool. Balinese cuisine is equally delightful with perfectly spiced curries and mouth-watering meats - ideal for a candlelit meal on the beach with your partner.
