5 Romantic Destinations for 2016

Celestial Croatia

Discover the jewel of the Adriatic in all of its glory, with white sandy beaches, castles and quaint sea-side villages. Croatia is a one-of-a-kind destination due to its friendly and welcoming people, scenic countryside, exquisite coastline and islands and fascinating traditions and history. Wander through the city of Dubrovnik with its ancient architecture and castles and soak up the ambience and contagious energy of the local people, or stroll along the beach as the warm water gently rolls over your feet and a majestic sea-side castle is silhoutted by a breath-taking European sunset.

Unbelievable Bahamas

The Bahamas is a collection of roughly 700 islands offering visitors picture-perfect beaches with historical buildings lining the streets, palm trees, beach shacks and warm, clear water. The Bahamas offers some of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities, as well as a range of exciting watersports. After a morning on the water, relax by the pool or on the beach before a romantic sunset stroll followed by a special dinner for two at a breath-taking beach restaurant.

Best of Bali

Bali, also known as The Island of the Gods, is a special place due to it’s unique island traditions, Hindu religion and spectacular tropical scenery. Spend less time in the busy ‘hot spots’ where Mc Donalds’ and Hard Rock Cafés line the streets. Traffic can be congested with hundreds of locals on scooters, who duck and weave between the cars and taxis, and it can all be quite manic – not really condusive to a romantic experience. However, Bali has other special elements up its sleeve!

Discover the ‘real’ Bali, where rice paddies, Hindu temples, villages and untouched beaches offer an exceptionally exciting, and more authentic island experience. Explore a volcanic mountain with a guided hike to the summit for blissful views over the island at sunrise, or spend some time beneath the waves with a mask and snorkel and explore just a small part of the extensive reef formations which encircle Bali. Spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach as you watch local fishermen returning from sea in their traditional outrigger canoes. And at sunset, watch the anchored fishing boats gently rocking backwards and forwards in a calm bay, as you sit down to a romantic dinner for two with your toes in the sand, candles gently blowing in the wind, and the ocean blissfully carressing the Balinese shoreline.

Inspiring Italian Riviera 

The picturesque and romantic stretch of Italian coastline between the south of France and Tuscany is known as the Italian Riviera. This stretch of coastline is dominated by immense beauty, with villages built into cliff faces overlooking the cool Mediterranean, and the way of life which is predominantly sustained by the sea. Colours of pastel, turqouise waters, natural scenery and delicious italian seafood, all create the perfect scene for a memorable romantic holiday. The Italian Riviera is sure to set any heart fluttering in no time.

Beautiful Bruges 

The city of Bruges in Belgium with its ancient buildings and cobbled streets provide a fairy tale atmosphere – the perfect setting for a Romantic holiday for two. Its canals and quaint stone foot bridges offer lovers a place to share intimate moments while basking in the glory of this centuries old city in north-west Belgium. Enjoy a romantic horse drawn carriage ride along the cobbled streets, or take in the panoramic views of the city at sunset from a 13th century tower which dominates the Bruges skyline.
