When setting out on a romantic getaway, some couples opt for one of the most popular destinations for lovers, those hot spots around the globe that everyone already knows about. But others prefer to embark on a trip of a lifetime to a unique destination where they can partake in distinctive activities and cultures.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is a paradise and will exceed all your honeymoon expecations. Enjoy magnificent cusines, breathtaking skylines, high end shopping and pristine beaches. Stay at the Conrad Dubai and enjoy Jeep safari tours and a dune buggy adventures. Dubai is the perfect mix of adventure plus relaxation. Siobhan Brown, Business Development Manager at CM Travel remarks, "The most memorable night we had in Dubai started with a dune buggy ride into the dessert where we arrived at an outdoor restaurant. Patrons dined on perisian rugs under the stars while listening to live music followed by camel rides. It was truly one of the most magical nights of my life and one my husband and I will never forget."
Bolzano, Puglia, or Calabria in Italy
For a romantic getaway with a twist think about exploring more unknown parts of Italy or Greece. These destinations offer a unique charm away from mainstream attractions, providing a more authentic and unusual romantic experience. Visit lesser-known parts of Italy, such as Bolzano near the Dolomites or the enchanting regions of Puglia and Calabria -Additionally, exploring the smaller towns in Tuscany adds a touch of authenticity to any romantic getaway. Take in the glorious landscapes, mouthwatering cuisines and the artistic legacy that only this historically rich region can offer.
Auckland, New Zealand
New Zealand’s wide-open spaces, relaxed pace of life, fantastic food and wine, small boutique accommodations, and the genuine warmth of friendly Kiwis, are made for romantic adventures. From sandy beaches and coves to mountain tops, fiords and star-studded skies, New Zealand is the perfect destination for a romantic honeymoon filled with their chosen level of adventure.
Take a scenic paddle into small caves filled with constellations of glow worms; seeing the stars of the southern sky, Aoraki, Mt Cook is deemed an international dark sky reserve and one of the clearest places on earth to see the stars; picnicking beneath a hanging glacier (Earnslaw Burn glacier was made famous by The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit trilogies; biking the wineries and wine tasting the region’s many small boutique vineyards, often meeting with the winemaker themselves; digging yourself a spa in the sand at Hot Water Beach; wandering amongst ancient Kauri Trees; learning about the unique Maori culture; experiencing waterfalls and fiords on an overnight cruise; and being one with nature by staying in a luxury treehouse or a glass pod. Now that describes a trip filled with undeniably unforgettable moments.
Croatia in the Balkans
Corina Croatia is an amazing and beautiful destination and an excellent alternative to Greece. It is a relatively lesser-known destination, but one that is filled with so many opportunities. Whether couples want to sail on a live aboard catamaran or yacht through the many picturesque islands or spend some time on land in a historic hotel immersed in the Croatian culture, there is something for everybody! Couples will love wandering the walled cities of Dubrovnik and Split; taking a hike to any of the many national parks with caves and waterfalls; and/or wine tasting at any of the incredible wineries throughout the different regions of the country. Croatia is the perfect blend of Italian and Greek influences while offering its own unique charm.
Of course, travelers to Ireland will likely want to visit Dublin, one of Europe’s friendliest cities (also filled with pubs to meet the locals and sing along with some lively Irish music). While walking the streets of Dublin, couples can feel the energy of more than 1,000 years of history, as echoes of the Vikings mix with quaint boutiques; cobbled streets reverberate with the sounds of musicians; and 18th-century parks play host to festivals and food markets.
But then, an off-the-beaten-path itinerary would send travelers to Western Ireland’s rugged coast and the Wild Atlantic Way. They can hit the road on a 1,500-mile coastal journey starting from the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head in County Donegal to the beauty of Kinsale town in County Cork. The island’s west coast wows with its epic sites (also seen in blockbuster movies) such as the Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey, the Ring of Kerry, and Galway City. And for those with an Irish heritage, this destination adds even more depth to their uncommon travel experience together.
Curacao in the Caribbean
One of the ABC islands (along with Aruba and Bonaire) in the Southern Caribbean just off the coast of Venezuela, Curacao is an out-of-the-ordinary island adventure. The Dutch Caribbean retreat is an ocean lover’s paradise with 35 spectacular beaches, yacht and catamaran charters, and numerous watersports. Adventure abounds landside, as well, where couples can share an adrenaline rush by scaling the highest peaks of Mt. Christoffel; exploring the deepest caverns at Hato Caves, or discovering the coves at Seven Inlets National Park (where unpredictable waves crash into the cliffsides, and three different species of sea turtles nest).
With a blend of centuries-old European culture and Caribbean flair, the island also offers superb shopping, tasteful galleries and colorful street murals, a variety of museums; and the chance to stop by an old plantation house to rub elbows with local artists, magicians, and dancers. While out on the town, a must is to sample the famous Blue Curaçao liqueur.
Couples can get lost (and found together) in this Peruvian capital where colonial charm meets some of the best cuisine on the continent. Lima is brimming with things to do in each of its five distinct neighborhoods: artsy and bohemian Barranco, upscale Miraflores, the business district of San Isidro, the Historic Center, and the travel hub of Callao. Plaza de Armas is a central point in the city, steps away from stunning palaces, cathedrals, and the San Francisco Church and Convent (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
From there, travelers can admire colonial architecture, or head to nearby Miraflores to explore miles of park trails and art installations overlooking the Pacific Ocean. History buffs can learn about Lima through its various museums, seeing collections of pre-Hispanic objects at the Larco Museum, exploring fine art at the MALI, or enjoying contemporary pieces at the MATE.
Lima is also a gateway to some of the world’s most incredible natural and world wonders. Visitors can take an easy flight to Cusco to explore bucket-list Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, and other ancient Incan ruins. Ica, five hours south of Lima by car or bus, is home to Huacachina – a village built around a picturesque oasis, where you can sandboard, race dune buggies, and watch the sunset over the desert. Another option is to fly to Iquitos in the north, Pucallpa in central Peru, or Puerto Maldonado in the south, for access to the lush rainforests, abundant wildlife, and unique experiences of the Amazon. Or, if the hiking in and around Machu Picchu is not enough, travelers can head north to Huaraz to see glacial lakes beneath snowcapped Andes vistas.
