Zero in on a place you haven't been to. The destinations mentioned next are the most visited destinations globally. They are the perfect summer destinations for couples and families too.

This year, make your summer vacation a bit more exciting than just having some fun at the beach. Given here are some of the most exotic summer destinations around the world, and also tell you what they offer!
Best Summer Destinations for Couples
Some of the islands you can choose from are Puerto Rico, Barbados and Dominica. When at Puerto Rico, make sure you visit the rain forest of El Junque and while at Dominica, visit Champagne for sighting some volcanic fissures. If you like racing, how about racing on the Caribbean waters? You can experience yacht racing this summer in St. Maarten.
You can also plan to visit more than one island if you have the time and the money. Apart from all this, scuba diving, snorkeling and submarine boat rides are a common phenomenon on almost all the Caribbean islands.
One such famous technique is the Vippasanna technique which involves meditation, dieting and detoxification methods. It is offered in many cities across the country, but the one in the northern regions of Himalayas is exceptionally famous.
The massages with natural oils in the state of Kerala are also world famous, and tourists come and visit this state from all over the world. Two such therapies are Kati Vasti and Shirodhara. If this is not your idea of a summer holiday, visit the beaches of Goa, a state in the southern hemisphere of the country.
Next, head for the outback. Here, you will see some wild fauna in their natural habitat. Considered as one of the most wildest areas of the world, this will be a memorable experience for the both of you!
Bask in the Brazilian Sun
If you want to have beaches as a part of your summer holiday, then Brazil is the best. Have you ever heard of a river beach? No? Try the Alter do Chao beach right in the middle of the Amazon rain forest. The combination of a beach, a jungle and the river is hard to find, isn't it?
Some other beaches you should consider here are Caraiva (Bahia), Arpoador (Rio de Janeiro), Lopes Mendes, Bonete and Praia da Fazenda. Apart from these beaches, you will be experiencing some tantalizing food and great culture as well.
Go Gazing in Guatemala
Yet another option, amongst all the romantic summer vacation destinations for couples is Guatemala. One of the most famous countries in Central America, it is fast becoming one of the best summer destinations for USA citizens. Though there are many destinations here you can visit during the summers, let's start from the beaches.
One of the beautiful beaches here is Monterrico, its specialty being that it is a black-sand beach. Other two pleasant and quiet beaches are Tilapa and Champerico. Another must visit destination is the Tikal Maya Ruins which are visited by many tourists, throughout the year.
The Cerro de la Cruz is another such spot. The outdoor street markets are another attraction here with the ones in Calle Santander and Chichicastenango topping the list. Another place you just can't miss is Semuc Champey, which has beautiful turquoise pools, in a stepped manner. These water beds aren't easy to access but are mesmerizing nonetheless.
Let's start with the islands again. Marmara, Uzunada and Tenedos are Turkish islands in the Mediterranean that are good summer destinations for couples. We often don't hear of a library (apart from that of U.S. Congress) being world famous, do we? But in Turkey, the Celsus Library in Ephesus will surprise you for sure.
Two more places worth visiting are Selimiye Mosque in Edine and the famous Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul. This bridge, for those who don't know, connects Europe and Asia. If you like visiting Mosques and religious sites, the Selimiye Mosque in Edirne is a must visit. Before all this, go visit the legendary walls of Troy!
