There’s something invigorating about getting away as a couple. From jetting off, arriving at your destination, to each romantic night spent overseas, being somewhere new together brings out the best in any relationship. Are you both more prone to city breaks, adventure trips, or just lazing on a beach? Here’s our guide to helping you find out:
Discovering a new city with your partner is one of the most exciting ways to holiday. Think because you’ve chosen streets over sand that doesn’t mean you don’t get to enjoy exotic holiday perks? Think again! Dubrovnik gifts couples the best of both worlds. You can spend your days wandering the historic old town, and your evenings dining in luxury by the pier. As city breaks go, this so-called Pearl of the Adriatic offers vibrant culture and serene seaside views.
Holidays are meant for relaxing, and what better way to do so than surrounded by sand and serenaded by lapping waves. Take Cyprus, an island surrounded by baby-blue waters made for long days of swimming and sunbathing. On the west coast, you’ll find Paphos, a one of the most charming coastal spots on the Mediterranean. Summers here are scorching, so load up on sun cream and you’ll both return feeling bronzed and refreshed.
Venturing across the world as a couple is a wonderful way to bond. From planning the trip to navigating foreign lands, you’ll without a doubt return feeling closer than ever before. Thailand, with the allure of its coves to the bustle of Bangkok, is one of the most rewarding long haul destinations to visit as a couple.
Who says holidays should just be confined to the summer months? Get away from the drizzle back home and revel in some winter sun. Mexico’s Riviera Maya is an idyllic strip of seafront, and temperatures rarely dip below 20°C. Top up your tan, or journey inland and explore ancient Mayan ruins.
Africa boasts wildlife and scenery that most other continents can’t match. Go wild, hop on a flight to Kenya or Tanzania and experience everything from safari tours, to the vast peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Rekindle the romance and visit a city that’s known for it – Venice. There’s nothing more calming than spending a few hours exploring this lover’s paradise by gondola, and by night you can dine with fine Venetian wine. Other romantic cities include Paris, Florence and Prague – all of which guarantee an unforgettable couple’s break.
Fancy yourselves as daredevils? Fly to the other side of the world and prepare for some otherworldly experiences. Costa Rica is an adventure seekers haven – speed down one of many zip lines, or try your hand at scuba diving in the country’s rich waters.
Sometimes couples connect best when they’re enjoying being pampered, without having to worry about who’s making dinner or choosing a restaurant for the evening. Take an all-inclusive vacation, and you’ll never need to worry about any of these trivialities! Playa de las Americas, in Tenerife, is brimming with resorts which allow you to simply switch off and enjoy your time together.
