Top 10 Couples Holiday Destinations
Deciding on a location for a couple’s holiday can be tricky. Do you want somewhere romantic or exciting? Do you both want a relaxing holiday? Or do you want different things from the trip?
Every couple is different, so below we have compiled a list of our top 10 destinations for couple’s holidays. We have included a real mix so there should be something for everyone.
The Caribbean is always a popular destination for those in love; and especially for honeymooners; thanks to its tropical climate and secluded atmosphere. Here you can share some real alone time with your partner, enjoying the sun or relaxing in the pool or sea.
There are plenty of activities for you to partake in, with water sports being top choices. Snorkelling, scuba diving and boat trips are all among the favourites to do in the Caribbean but these aren’t all. If you’re not a fan of the sea or want to take some time away from the water, why not try off-roading or take a treetop walk through the jungle.
Once you’ve enjoyed your day you can settle down to a romantic dinner on the beach with the sunset as your background. Perfect!
Hawaii is known for its great weather and relaxing atmosphere, with welcoming locals and amazing places to visit. Be greeted with a Hawaiian Lei when you arrive and sip on a cocktail made from a coconut! There are many different resorts for you to choose from, from right on the coast to further in, depending on your preference.
During the days, you can relax on one of the many beaches available or explore the volcanic areas of the island at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Take a trek, explore the jungle, discover rivers and make friends with the wildlife. Visit Wai’anapanapa State Park and take a romantic walk on the beaches, along the coast and the sea caves!
Finish off your day by trying some of the local Hawaiian cuisine and take a sunset stroll along the sand.
Safari in Kenya
Taking a trip to Kenya is perfect for couples who love to explore and enjoy animals. Whilst the weather is hot you can take a safari trip and see what wild animals you can spot. Here you can make memories that will last forever and see sights that will take your breath away!
