Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Lanai, Hawaii
Island in Lanai
Hawaii has undoubtedly been one of the most sought-after destinations in the world for ages now. Though tourists usually fly down to the famous islands and the attractions they offer, as a couple, your first choice should be Lanai.

The smallest inhabited island in the chain, here you will find perfect balanced isolation. With no shopping malls or traffic lights, this place ensures a great natural environment. Public transportation does not exist; cars, bikes, bicycles, and small buses are usually leased by the hotels.

Santorini, Greece
Beach in Santorini
White homes, blue-caped churches, the serene waters of the Aegean Sea, and small cafés scattered all through the landscape - the picture is just perfect!

While this ensures a content heart, sumptuous meals all day round with some of the world's best wines ensure content tummies. If, for you, romance is synonymous with good food and crowd, Santorini is the place to be.
September and October are the best months to travel to Santorini, as you can avoid the rush of the tourist season from June to August.
Best Time to Visit: June to October
Maldives
Island in Maldives
Are you and your better half on the constant lookout for something exciting? Then, on the islands of the Maldives, you shall find both - romance and adventure.

Luxury resorts, private natural pools, and an unending appetite for the warm sun, are a few things you will be welcomed by. Snorkeling and scuba diving together in safe pools outside your room, is an adventure very few islands offer. Opt for the southern islands for more seclusion.
Best Time to Visit: December to April
Fiji
Beach in Fiji
The soft coral capital of the world has more in store than just a few heavenly beaches and some breathtaking underwater life. If you want to escape the expensive resorts of Bora Bora, Fiji definitely stands as an alternative.

Wake up ahead of the world everyday, soak in the warm sun, get natural exercise with scuba diving and snorkeling, travel through abundant trails and get absorbed in the mystical life here.
Turtle Island and Qamea Island which are a part of the Fiji islands should be prioritized. Turtle Island especially, only allows 14 couples at once.

Undeniably one of the most sought-after vacation spots, Seychelles islands are some of the best jewels in the Indian Ocean. 16 islands out of the hundreds offer accommodation; out of these, the three main islands are Praslin, La Digue, and Mahé.
