Romance is something everyone wants to find, and when we have it, -if you’re one of the lucky few-, the next big challenge is keeping it. A romantic honeymoon is a great start for young couples but there are so many locations to choose from. Which one’s the perfect fit? Here are 5 of our top picks.
1. Hermanus, South Africa
Isn’t there something intensely romantic about the sea? It always does something special to set the scene for passion. Hermanus, South Africa is quite the scene. The misty environment, coupled with cliffs and a seaside pathway with opportunities for whale watching are the stuff dreams are made of, romantic ones that are. Romance isn’t quite the same without a little wine to heighten the senses. Hermanus doesn’t fall short here either, there’s a wine valley really close by called Hemel-en-Aarde. In the local dialect, the name translates to “heaven and earth.” What more would you need?
