Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend a little extra time and effort showing your loved one how much you care about them.

12 of the Most Romanic Travel Destinations Around the World

 Prague, Czech Republic

romantic travel destinations
“Whether solo or coupled (I was there solo) it’s remained in my memory as one of the most romantic places to visit. Grab a warm drink and walk around Old Town Square, with its famous astronomical clock – you may even see a couple getting married at City Hall right next door. Take a romantic walk along the Charles Bridge or take some time to explore the meandering walkways at Prague Castle.”

Zanzibar, Africa

romantic trave destinations
“I visited Zanzibar with a friend and we both joked that we were each others date on this romantic location. It has all the elements for the perfect romantic getaway. You can go snorkeling, kitesurfing or explore the historic streets of the town. If you’re looking for the perfect date, having dinner on a white sandy beach while overlooking the ocean comes pretty damn close. If it’s the most amazing seafood restaurant that sits on a rock in the ocean it’s even better than perfect. So if you go make sure to visit ‘The rock’. This was one of my favorite spots on the island despite the fact I didn’t have a romantic date ;)”

Boracay Island, Philippines

“There are many places in this world that could be romantic. But being on the highest hill with a great beach surrounding is truly one of a kind and undeniably amazing. Caipirinha Villa located on Boracay Island in the Philippines will provide you exactly what you’re looking for. Bring your date, enjoy the night, grab a drink, indulge in the jacuzzi, swim under the stars, and enjoy the grandest infinity pool in the island.”

Graz, Austria

romantic travel destinations
“While Graz, Austria is primarily not considered as a romantic destination, it can surprise you! Although, it is not quite as famous as the capital Vienna, it works perfectly for your romantic holiday. Graz is filled with a number of narrow streets to wander, hidden courtyards, colourful historical facades and cozy cafés behind them. Make sure to climb the hill up to the the symbolical clock-tower to marvel at the beautiful red roofs.”
– Andrea Schejbalová, Urban Twists

Aitutaki, Cook Islands

romantic travel destinations

“Aitutaki is a remote island in the Cook Islands and would be a perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day. You’ll be far removed from the world and with only the pure white sand and palm trees as company you’ll feel like you’re the only 2 people in the world that matter. If relaxing is what the day calls for then hammocks abound, or if adventure is your thing there is plenty to see under the water too.”
– Luke Marlin, Backstreet Nomad

HoiAn, Vietnam

romantic travel destinations
“There is very good reason for selecting Hoi An one of the most romantic spots in Asia. The charming small streets of its Old Quarter are the ideal place to stroll around hand in hand; along the banks of the channel crossing the town there are dozens of small cafes and restaurants to choose from, and on the channel itself you can take a romantic sunset ride in a colorful wooden boat just like in Venice.
Lastly, the town is beautiful in daylight, but has an even more fantastic ambiance at night. It is illuminated by thousands of colorful fairy-lights, soft music plays from the loudspeakers on the streets and thousands of small paper lanterns are put on the waters of the channel.”

Burano, Italy

romantic travel destinations
Burano, Italy is a tiny island just off the coast of Venice, and is one of the most romantic destinations I’ve visited. Imagine strolling hand-in-hand with your loved one alongside rainbow colored houses dotting sparkling green canals. Share a gelato while people watching, a just bask in the pure Italian-ness of the village. It’s an amazing place to enjoy when you’re in love.”
– Melissa, Maps and Merlot

Caesarea, Israel

romantic travel destinations
“The Old Port in Caesarea, Israel, is perfect for spending a romantic day. From a beautiful beach to breathtaking views and ancient Roman ruins – The Old Port is a unique romantic destination. Couples can walk along the beach, enjoy a selection of restaurants with sea view, and have the educational experience of learning about the story of ancient Israel.”
– Hadas Aharon, The Fashion Matters

Bruges, Belgium

romantic travel destinations

Bruges is a small pristine medieval town in Belgium. A stroll along the vivid medieval buildings and the maze of canals is perfect for a romantic getaway. Or even best take a boat ride or go cycling to experience the magical aura of the town. And do not forget to savor on some yummy Belgian fries and delicious flavored waffles.”

Raja Ampat, Indonesia

romantic travel destinations

“Raja Ampat is definitely a honeymoon kind of place. It’s a remote archipelago off the coast of West Papua, Indonesia, with wonderful beaches and even better diving! One of the reasons to travel to Raja Ampat is Pianemo, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen – a cluster of forest-topped coral islands in an emerald bay. There are still few tourists, so get there soon!”
– Margherita Ragg, The Crowded Planet

Cotswolds, United Kingdom

romantic travel destinations
“I love Cotswolds, United Kingdom! The area is so quaint and cosy it’s definitely one of the most romantic travel destinations there is. In particular, Bibury in the Cotswolds is one of the most romantic villages you can visit and is ideal date weekend destination. Amble through the pretty village or enjoy a pint by the fire at The Swan hotel – the perfect romantic place for a break!”
– Emma Dowey, Me and B Make Tea 

Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa

romantic travel destinations
“Imagine being surrounded by crisp fall fresh air, stormy sea waves, and gorgeous greenery. Now add to your image, a cozy log cabin with a fireplace, a private deck facing the coastline, rugged hiking trails, and a picturesque waterfall. Tsitsikamma National Park in South Africa holds all these wonders and is one of the most beautifully calming places to curl up next to your significant other and drift away as you listen to and watch the symphony of the Indian Ocean.”

  1. Anywhere with a beach is good in my book, but Burano, Italy looks particularly wonderful. Paris would probably be my first stop. I guess I’m unoriginal. Hahaha! Great roundup!

  2. Ugh, Prague is SOOO amazing! I went a few months ago! If only I had the funds to take my boyfriend to one of these places for Valentine’s Day. I guess for now my dorm room will have to settle 😉 Thanks for a great post!

  3. Oh, hey!! As a Filipina, I am so proud that you included Boracay, Philippines!

    Anyway, this is just giving me all travel-envy feels! Wish my husband and me could drop everything and go to one of these places this Valentine’s Day. As parents of school kids, adulting often comes before traveling ;P

  4. So many pretty places! Love the Cotswold, United Kingdom photo – right out of a storybook. I would so love to visit! We usually travel with the kids in tow and so ‘romantic destination’ isn’t something I choose on purpose. But, one night we took off for the evening leaving the kids and grandma in the apartment in Rome and it was so romantic – just us and the magic of the city. 🙂

  5. Surprisingly, the Cotswolds is what I would imagine as the most romantic weekend away. I love cozy cottages and getting toasty by a fire with my man after coming in from the cold.
    A place I would like to go also is Algarve in Portugal… maybe this Valentine’s Day it will happen 🙂

  6. What lovely destinations to visit…. I can personnally recommend Zanzibar ..Its just across the border in Tanzania…its such a lovely place

    Regards from Kenya

  7. Terminally single gal over here. I can go to all these places on my own…. right?! 😛 Burano is my favourite place in Venice, great shout. I’d love to go Boracay Island – that sunset looks incredible.

  8. Great list. Although I will not be able to go to any of these on Valentine’s day but nevertheless, whenever I go to any of these, that will be my Valentine’s day. I am headed to Palampur in India, a very beautiful location

  9. I have to admit.. I have never been a fan of Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I are planning to eat pizza and drink wine in bed as it falls on our date night anyway, BUT the rest of the year I am the most disgustingly romantic person.. Aaaand so thanks for all these places to force him to take me to!

  10. Though for Valentine’s day, I just have a plan for dinner. You now make me wish I have asked him for a plane ticket! haha
    Such a beautiful post. I am glad I was able to read about all the places from your perspective.
    Happy travels!

  11. A round-up of some of the most beautiful places in the world. I guess one should not wait for Valentines Day to get to these places. The beauty of these places ensure that romance is in the air all the time. Any day transforms into Valentines day at these places.

  12. beautiful places and brilliant selections! Going through a touch patch in my marriage, now is probably not the best time for me to plan a Valentines’ day but Hoi An is where I am headed to in March! Can’t wait.

  13. All these places sound fabulous and I wouldn’t just go for Valentine’s Day. Although my bf and I have made a pact to buy each other trips rather than things. If it was up to me I wouldn’t choose a beach. To me the most romantic thing is to do stuff with my partner.
