When you think of romantic destinations to visit with your partner, where do you think of? A romantic weekend in Paris or Florence perhaps? A week in New York might encourage a dozen romantic moments; a walk in Central Park, a jazz club with cocktails and dimmed nights at 1am...
For a longer stay, perhaps a honeymoon or anniversary visit, I always think of an island, a beach, turquoise waters and just you and your partner. For me, that place is Mauritius.
Mauritius is the perfect destination for a long haul getaway with your love and Destination2 has some amazing places that you can stay on the island. You can visit the website here.
Whether you want to do nothing but lie on an idyllic beach and have a dip in the crystal clear waters or whether you want an excursion or two, Mauritius has everything that you could want.
Perhaps a romantic horse ride on the beach at sunset or maybe a diving experience in a submarine underwater trip?
You can also visit Des Deux Cocos which is a private island only a five minute boat ride away from Mauritius where you can experience the feeling of perfectly alone together, in a setting that is nothing short of paradise.
Don't think however that Mauritius is only beautiful beaches, there is a life and a beat to Mauritius that you have to experience. How about a visit to Le Caudan waterfront in St Louis where you can find shops, craft markets, bars and casinos as well as the famous umbrellas on the waterfront.
Romance does not have to be a holiday or a trip. It doesn't have to be a romantic meal out or a boat ride on a lake. Romance can be as simple as running your loved one a bath surrounded by candles, a snuggle together at 5am, a note left on the fridge saying "I love you".
When it comes down to it, romance is a personal thing and revolves around the pair of you, together. Whether it is waking up to a kiss in the morning, or lying on a beach, holding hands in paradise.
What is your kind of romance?
