Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time for a romantic getaway for you and your loved one. Taking a trip as a couple is a great way to show your love, whether you’ve been together for a month or a lifetime.
With so many unique, love-filled destinations to choose from, it can be hard to narrow it down. We’ve put together 6 of our favourite hot spots for a Valentine’s trip.
This island is the jewel in the crown of Greece. Santorini is home to some of the best views in the Mediterranean, and taking in the village of Oia is bound to get your heart swelling. The island is known for its stunning sunsets, making it a perfect choice for an evening stroll before or after some delicious Greek food and excellent local wine.
New York, USA
New York City is home to countless rom-coms, from Breakfast at Tiffany’s to You’ve got Mail; chances are you’ve seen this city in a romantic film. So why not visit the Big Apple and recreate some of your favourites? Walk arm in arm through Central Park or soak in the views from the top of the Empire State Building. New York has so much to offer as a romantic getaway in the USA.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
With breathtaking scenery and incredibly friendly locals, Italy has plenty of choices for holiday hot spots. We think that the Amalfi Coast is particularly romantic and makes an excellent destination for loved-up couples. Take in the stunning views from the Terrazza dell’Infinito at Villa Cimbrone together, or stroll the Path of Love in Furore. As with any location in Italy, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to romantic restaurants and cafes.
What list of Valentine’s holidays would be complete without Paris? The capital city of France is known worldwide for its fine wine and food, beautiful architecture and romantic vibe. Enjoy a picnic underneath the Eiffel tower or a sunset river cruise along the Seine. France is only a train or ferry ride away, making Paris perfect for a weekend away together.
What could be more romantic than sharing a tiny island paradise with the love of your life? The Maldives offers fantastic weather, white coral beaches and warm azure seas. Take a dip together on a romantic snorkel or scuba diving trip, and experience the vast array of sea life. You can even book a picnic on a desert island, where you’ll be all alone together.
Karpaz Peninsula, Cyprus
Give your relationship the blessings of a genuine goddess of love. Visit the famous birthplace of Aphrodite, a stunning beach near Paphos, Cyprus. Enjoy the sun and a swim together in this popular hot spot. Once you’ve seen Aphrodite’s Rock, you can also stroll around the beautiful countryside and visit the stunning Apostolos Andreas Monastery.
No matter when you and your loved one decide to go, make sure you buy your travel insurance as soon as you book your trip.
