Planning a couples’ getaway? Here are some of our top picks for the most romantic vacation destinations!
There is so much to see and do in St. Lucia if you like to explore! Here, you will find the majestic twin Pitons, the lush volcanic plugs towering over the island, and Pigeon Island, a national park where you can go sailing, snorkeling, and diving. You will also find hiking trails such as the Tet Paul Nature Trail, volcano drives, and beautiful gardens.
Tuscany is a beautiful destination where you can indulge in decadent food and wine. Must-try eateries include the two Michelin-starred Caino from Chef Valeria Piccini and the restaurant at Il Canto del Maggio, which provides guests with classic farm-to-table service featuring ingredients found in Mauro’s (the owner’s) garden. If you’re looking for a truly fairy-tale-like experience, stay in the 1,000-year-old Castello di Ristonchi, a medieval castle high in the countryside that overlooks villages, groves, and vineyards.
Nova Scotia’s culture has influences from the Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African Nova Scotia, and Gaels. Food tours are great for experiencing local cuisine, wine, beer, and more. If you visit during the summer and fall, don’t miss out on a whale-watching tour, where you can observe the up to 12 different whale species that migrate through the area every year.
On the West Coast of Mexico, off the Sea of Cortez, lies La Paz, where sea and desert meet. You can enjoy snorkeling, glamping, kitesurfing, kayaking, relaxing beach days, delicious Mexican gastronomy, and more. Just off the coast is Espiritu Santo Island, an official UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site and national park.
Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is a destination for any couple who seeks warmth, beaches, culture, and Thai gastronomy. Here, you can stay in a private villa, enjoy pampering at a luxurious spa, visit magnificent historic temples, and plan a sunset dinner for two.
