Heat Up the Space Coast in the Area's 10 Most Romantic Hotels

The quintessential romantic vacation looks like a normal night on the Space Coast, Florida: a slow stroll down the beach, drinking champagne under the stars, a quiet beach, the sound of the rolling waves just outside your window. 

Florida's Space Coast is famous for its space shuttle launches, but it's also a great destination for a romantic vacation, whether it's a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or opportunity to fall in love all over again.

There's something dreamy about a bed and breakfast, like Port d'hiver in Melbourne Beach, just steps from the beach. With a spa tub, walking paths, a private balcony and complimentary drinks, this is our favorite place to let love blossom. 

The 3800 Ocean Beach Condo Vacation Rentals in Cocoa Beach also feature private balconies with stunning beach views. In fact, many of our favorite romantic homes-away-from-home are situated right on the beach, where the water sets the mood.  

Want even more relaxation? We love that the Beach Place and Sand Dollar Guesthouse features wood-burning fireplaces and hammocks, as well as barbecue grills and full kitchens – so you can cozy up for an intimate vacation, just the two of you. 

Here are our favorite 10 romantic hotels on the Space Coast.
