During the summer months the streets come alive with scantily clad sun worshipers, heading to Coney Island to peruse the boardwalk or enjoy an evening meal outside one of the city’s many quaint bistros.

Over the years the Seychelles has earned its reputation as being one of the world’s most romantic locations, offering couples sun, sea and silken sands.

If reclining on the beach all day, in between taking dips into the calm Indian Ocean, sounds like your thing, then you’ll feel right at home here. Or, if you’d prefer to do something a little more active, why not take a cooking class at one of the local restaurants or hotels? A host of luxurious resorts are on hand to provide you and your loved one with indulgent accommodation that overlooks the dazzling ocean. 


Venice is famous for its natural romantic aura, having played host to countless romantic couples over the years.
