If there’s a special person in your life that you love and cherish with all your heart, there are few more romantic acts than to surprise your beloved by whisking the person off on the vacation of his or her dreams. The planet is full of romantic places to choose from.
However, some of them have become standard and obvious, such as Niagara Falls or Paris. While they remain lovely places, some of us would prefer to find a romantic destination that most other people might overlook, even if they’re seasoned travelers.
Consider the less well-known romantic places below, which are likely to give your lover the thrill of a lifetime.
1. Iguazu Falls, Brazil and Argentina
The cascading waterfalls you can enjoy here are higher than the ones found at Niagara. According to ancient legends, Guarani tribesmen would perform sacrifices of virgins as an offering to a serpent called Boi that they believed to live in the river.
Stories such as these have made the falls a curiosity to people from all over the world. If you decide to pay a visit yourself, you’ll definitely want to make sure that you bring your camera. There is beauty here to rival almost any other place in the world.
Argentina and Brazil share more than 270 waterfalls, so you and your chosen one will have a lot of exploring to do. Puerto Iguazu is the city that’s closest to the falls, and offers a variety of places to stay in different price ranges.
2. Copenhagen, Denmark
Venice, Amsterdam, and Paris are probably most often found on the travel itineraries of couples who make a romantic getaway. If you give Copenhagen a chance, however, it won’t disappoint you.
This city has everything to meet all your romantic needs. You can take a cruise down old canals, stroll through the Tivoli Gardens, and enjoy shopping at exclusive boutiques. If you and your special someone are fans of the theater or opera, Copenhagen can provide you with quality productions of those, as well.
3. New Caledonia, South Pacific
This is a gorgeous island setting that successfully blends French influence with Melanesian culture. From Sydney, Australia, you can hop on a 150-minute flight and arrive at this destination.
You’ll find a coral reef that is the second largest in the world. This area also boasts the largest lagoon on the planet. Both of these places have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. If you’re trying to find a unique location to go for your honeymoon, New Caledonia would be an excellent choice.
4. Rovinj, Croatia
This town sits on the Adriatic coastline’s largest peninsula. Couples can indulge in a wide array of activities here, especially during the summer.
The Feast of St. Euphemia, Rovinjs Night, Lugger Regatta, Kultfest, Summer Salsa Festival, and Rovinj Photodays are all guaranteed to be memorable events for you and your partner to enjoy. Rovinj can also boast of being the Adriatic’s third sunniest location.
