The British Virgin Islands for couples
Enjoy romance on a couples holiday to the British Virgin Islands
There are few more romantic spots on the planet than the Caribbean nations, with these clusters of islands being home to more stunning beaches, pristine forests and high-end hotels than you could imagine. The British Virgin Islands is a lovely group of around 50 isles, with many of these being totally deserted and thus becoming the perfect spots for loved-up couples to escape from everything.
Spending time at the beach is a real must, and there are certainly lots of secluded bays and coves here to discover together. Book a sailing tour or take to kayaks to go on a journey of exploration to find the most picturesque and peaceful places around the isles.
As you can probably imagine, there are also some wonderful seaside restaurants where you can enjoy a romantic meal against a stunning backdrop. Cane Garden Bay on Tortola is a favourite spot among sailors and, as a result, there are several restaurants located here.
Romance in the BVI
There's nothing quite like watching a spectacular sunset with your loved one by your side and there are certainly plenty of scenic spots for a dusk stroll in the British Virgin Islands. Long Bay and Brewers Bay on Tortola are both excellent spots for a leisurely wander as the sun goes down, while at Cane Garden Bay you can enjoy a tasty cocktail at one of the beach bars.
Exploring some of the BVI's amazing natural attractions is another romantic way to spend your time on your break and to ensure you leave with memories you'll never forget. The Baths on Virgin Gorda is one of the most famous spots in the island, with the large boulders here creating a series of pools, grottos and caverns that you can discover together.
On Jost Van Dyke, meanwhile, is the incredible Bubbly Pool - a natural Jacuzzi where the bubbles are created by waves breaking into this enclosed tidal pool. It's quite amazing to see the wall of whitewater racing towards you, only to watch it break and disperse just a few metres outside of the pool - an awesome experience to share with your loved one.
Activities for fun-loving couples to try
While it's great to spend time lounging in the sun on one of the many stunning beaches, many couples want to do a bit more than just that on their holidays. Trying new activities together and sharing new experiences with each other is a great way to create lasting memories and there are certainly plenty of opportunities for this in the British Virgin Islands.
One of the best things to have a go at together is scuba diving, with this underwater sport allowing you to discover a fascinating and beautiful world below the surface. Dive beneath the waves and you'll be greeted by colourful reefs surrounded by flitting fish, with the chance to see some of the ocean's larger inhabitants, such as dolphins and sharks, being always a possibility.
You could also learn to surf at one of the BVI's surf breaks, or have a go at windsurfing and see if you and your partner are zipping along the sea in no time, or spending most of your time pulling yourselves out of the waves.
For something a little slower paced, head to one of the many national parks for a walk. Diamond Cay and Sandy Cay in Jost Van Dyke are ideal if you're after a gentle stroll on deserted beaches, with these little spits of land promising seclusion and natural beauty all rolled into one.
