We all want a romantic vacation. Somewhere where they could fall in love again, feel great, and relax. When you’re in love, there’s a wish to share it with the world, and it’s a big world out there.BEING FLAWLESS’s list of the Top 10 Most Romantic Places in the world includes suggestions for any occasion, whether it’s a sweet honeymoon or exciting couple’s escapade
1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The most romantic place in the world is naturally a honeymoon hotspot for the lucky few who afford it. The island of Bora Bora offers everything that a romantic couple wants; a pristine beach, magical, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, crystal blue water, dazzling white sand, all of which is framed with the majestic Mount Otemanu in the distance.
For a romantic stay, couples can choose among four resorts on the island of Motu Tofari: The St. Regis, Four Seasons Resort, Le Meridien, and Intercontinental Resort and Thalasso Spa. All of which provides excellent romantic accommodation.
2. Oia, Santorini, Greece
The scenic town of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini is a picture-perfect location for a romantic evening. Perched high on the cliff top it boasts breathtaking views over the caldera, stunning sunsets, and world-class restaurants (try dining at the Feredini restaurant) and hotels (of which Art Maisons may be the most romantic).
3. Sacré-Cœur, Paris, France
High atop Montmartre Hill in the northern neighborhoods of Paris, you’ll find the Sacré-Cœur – or Basilica of the Sacred Heart, offering stunning panoramic views of what many have deemed the most romantic city in the world. On the terrace in front of this white, cake-like, Basilica couples look out over an ocean of rooftops, illuminated avenues, and some of Paris’ most recognizable landmarks.
4. Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Italy
Of the hundreds of romantic squares in Florence, none can match the romantic beauty of Piazzale Michelangelo. This public square sits atop a hill above the Oltrarno neighborhood, on the opposite side of the river from the Duomo, and offers spectacular views over this Renaissance city. While the view is excellent in any kind of weather, the vista is particularly popular at sunset, when the colors of the setting sun illuminate the archetypal red roofs, the glistening river, the countless church towers, and the mighty cathedral.
5. Taj Mahal, Agra, India
Commissioned by the grief-stricken Moghul emperor Shah Jahan after the death of his favorite wife in 1631, the Taj Mahal is an eternal monument to lost love. The beauty of the magnificent garden and the view of the marble mausoleum as it shifts color from pink to white is a memory for life and a perfect place to cherish the one you love.
6. Menara Gardens, Marrakech, Morocco
In the heart of the romantic Moroccan city of Marrakech the Menara Gardens offers a tranquil refuge from the hustle and bustle of the Medina- old town. As the sun sets, couples stroll along the lake and amidst gardens adorned with both orchards and olive groves. Adding to the romance, Marrakech offers several romantic accommodations, most of which are riads, traditional Moorish-style mansions with a central garden courtyard.
7. Waipio Valley, Hawaii , USA
The preferred honeymoon destination of thousands of Americans each year is still a romantic classic, of which the Waipi’o Valley may be the most romantic part of the island chain. The lush valley on the Big Island’s North East coast is dotted with fields, lotus ponds, soothing streams, a black sand beach, and picturesque waterfalls cascading down the sheer rock face. While the trip there is arduous (you need to take a four-wheeled vehicle down into the valley, or you make the trip on the slightly more romantic alternative- horseback), a day here with your loved one is truly worth it.
8. Bruges, Belgium
The charming Belgian town of Bruges, oozes with character and atmosphere. A stroll through the city (preferably in spring or fall when the crowds of tourist disperse) offers views of charming historic houses, picturesque canals, cobblestone streets, and one of Europe’s grandest clock towers.
9. Grande Canal, Venice, Italy
A journey (whether in a gondola or on a ferry) down the Grande Canal in the city of Casanova truly exposes the inherent romance of this ancient city of canals, bridges, and awe-inspiring palaces, seemingly rising out of the blue-green lagoon. End you journey at the Piazza San Marco, one of Europe’s most beautiful squares, and witness the mythical Bridge of Sighs (local legend has it that lovers will be granted everlasting love and bliss if they kiss on a gondola at sunset under the bridge).
10. Gay Head Cliffs, Martha’s Vineyard, MA, USA
Standing with your loved one on the sheer clay cliffs of Gay Head, looking out over the rough Atlantic Ocean as the cliffs glow in various hues as the sun sets, is definitely one of America’s most romantic vistas. Adding to the charm of this magical point is the flashing light of the Head lighthouse and the soft white sand of Moshup Beach far below.
