    Red Beach on Vieques Island, Puerto Rico

    On an island known for spectacular beaches, the Red Beach (Playa Caracas) is a standout. Hill views and volcanic outcroppings keep the scenery interesting, while the public cabanas in the area make it an ideal spot for a family or romantic picnic.

  • Maldives

    The Maldives

    The beaches of the Maldives are postcard perfect, plain and simple. The water is clear, the sand is white, and the sun is warm. Filitheyo Beach is particularly idyllic with its incredibly tall palm trees and welcoming culture.

  • Overlooking Blue Lagoon

    Turtle Island, Fiji

    This island is home to an all-inclusive, privately owned resort that specializes in intimacy (as no more than 14 couples are permitted to stay on the property at one time.) Lush, tropical beaches and matchless seafood are big draws of Turtle Island. An ideal destination for a romantic getaway.
