Cheap Romantic Holidays for Couples

Google image the word “romance” and you’ll find the results throw up a number of stereotypical pictures. Couples gazing into each other’s eyes, dancing, surrounded by love hearts... but have you ever noticed how many of these images include a beach? That’s because the beach is the perfect place to spend a romantic break with your loved one, far from the distractions of everyday life.

 

Romantic Breaks

 

A couples holiday is just about the most romantic thing you can do together, whether you’re a new couple or have spent many years together. Certain things are synonymous with romantic breaks: beautiful surroundings, great food and drink, seclusion, pampering and relaxation are just some of the things that come to mind. Whether you’re on a short break or an indulgent longer holiday, it’s the same combination of things that make a romantic holiday for two unlike any other holiday.

Of course, depending on the couple, the perfect romantic break could be any number of things in any number of places. No single stretch of sand will be every couple’s idea of the ideal beach. So if you’re planning a beach getaway with your other half or if you want to surprise them with a romantic treat, it’s important to think about what you want from your holiday.

 

The first decision to make is usually the destination. How long are you planning to be away for? If it’s a short weekend break or just a few days, it’s worth bearing in mind that travelling isn’t particularly romantic (unless you’re on a private jet), so the nearer the beach, the more time you’ll get on the sand as opposed to in the air or on the road. Some fantastic places to enjoy romantic breaks with short travelling times are Portugal, Turkey, Spain, the Balearics and Corfu. If you’ve got some more time to spend travelling, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia are incredibly romantic destinations with fantastic weather, glorious beaches and exquisite hotels.

 

Once you’ve decided on a destination, the next thing to choose is a hotel. These days, there are a number of hotels designed purely for couples, and many of them are exclusively for adults. Even if you’ve got your own family, it’s unlikely that you’ll want to be surrounded by screaming kids on your romantic break! Make sure you do your research when it comes to choosing your hotel. If a hotel is designed for families, it’s likely to say so in the description, and "family-friendly" usually equals full of children!

 

Finally, romantic breaks should never involve rushing around trying to cram as much in as possible. It’s your time to enjoy each other with no distractions. During a short break, keep activities to a minimum – if you’ve only got a couple of days, spend them relaxing together, especially if your normal lifestyle is quite hectic. On a more lengthy escape, treat yourselves to things you wouldn’t ever do at home. Go on a camel trek, have a romantic dinner under the stars, take a sunset cruise, or simply order room service and confine yourselves to your room all night!
