February is well known for Valentine’s Day, the day of romance and love. Whilst some of you no doubt treat your loved ones all year round, many will still go to town to treat their other half on this day. This year, as the special day falls over a weekend on Saturday 14th February, why not make the most of it and book a holiday that covers that weekend too.
The Flexicover team look at some wonderfully romantic places to visit.
St. Lucia, Caribbean
If you really want a ‘wow’ holiday, then the Caribbean island of St Lucia is a top pick. This exotic destination is the perfect place for romance, candlelight, beautiful sunsets and gourmet food and February is a great time to visit with warm temperatures and gentle breezes. Relax, swim, read a book or climb majestic volcanoes and bath in therapeutic hot springs, the choice is yours! With so much to do from adrenaline driven water sports, visiting botanical gardens and exploring Pigeon island, you will soon discover that this island was made to make magical moments and life long memories.
Made up of 6 islands, Islamorada, set between the saltwater wilderness of Everglades National Park and the deep blue waters of the Florida Strait, is also known as the ‘Sport fishing Capital of the World.’ The rustic-ness and scenery here make for a wonderfully cosy stay and most of the cottages in the area are connected to the beach by wooden walkways, giving visitors privacy and tranquillity. Supported by lush jungle-filled landscapes and an almost private, white sandy beach this makes for a wonderfully romantic break. Snorkel and discover the magical under water marine lands, sunbath or sway on a hammock, the choice is yours!
Beaver Creek, Colorado
Beaver Creek, a luxury ski resort just west of Vail and near the town of Avon in Colorado boasts some of the finest ski slopes around. Stepping onto lands here will feel like walking into a land of magic. Known for its downhill slopes, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and plenty of après-ski it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a romantic getaway. Enjoy the world class restaurants on offer and book a 5 course dinner at the local mountain cabin – worth every cent! Hike, shop or for a special treat, enjoy a romantic hot air balloon ride over the hills. The perfect romantic break.
Ionian Islands, Greece
Rediscover your love affair on one of the most popular islands of Greece. Basking off the coastline of Albania, this island is mesmerizing and an ideal location for romance. This passion infused island is dotted with rustic villages filled with whitewashed houses, Byzantine churches and majestic Venetian fortresses. If you are looking for an adventure to spruce up the afterhours, travel to the town of Corfu for its famed and exciting nightlife. A perfect getaway for 2015.
A perfect romantic getaway will no doubt leave you with lifelong memories. Remember to take your Flexicover travel insurance with you too!
