2. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, Tahiti Islands:
There is more to Matira Beach on the southern tip of Bora Bora than the languid tropical breeze, soft white sand or spectacular sunset. The crystal-clear, calm and warm waters that provides the perfect playing arena for vibrant tropical fish and dolphins is the major attraction of this romantic destination. The island has a unique location in the midst of smaller islands and reefs which creates a protected and shallow lagoon where one can indulge in swimming and snorkelling among other popular water activities. Be it for a day or for an entire year of leisurely pleasure with your new spouse by your side, the ambience of Matira Beach can be rivalled by none.
3. Santa Barbara, California:
America boasts of some of the finest and most romantic beaches in the world. So for those in search of some uninterrupted beauty and romance, they need not look far beyond the borders. Plush art, nature’s elegance, glorious beaches and a perfect climate combine to form the ideal lure for couples. Couples can take a room at one of the oceanfront Mediterranean-style villas, slip into their bathing suits and head for the beach. There is also the option of wandering through the lush botanical gardens or hiking the trail to Los Padres National Forest. A stopover at the Japanese teahouse is recommended as one is bound to feel good at the place, thanks partly to the warmth of the sun available round the year.
4. Port Townsend, Washington:

Exploring the wilderness and surrounding beaches on foot is the most fascinating experience. A five-mile-long hike to the Dungeness Lighthouse and Dungeness Spit offers further solitude.
5. St.Simon’s Island, Georgia:
A weekend spent at the St.Simon’s islands, which is the largest among the Golden Isles in the county gives the most apt feeling of an unspoiled hideout in the Deep South along the Atlantic Coast. The couples can base themselves at the St.Simon’s Inn located just a block from the waters with rooms that overlook a historic lighthouse. There are a couple of pristine white-sand beaches on the island that provide an excellent romantic setting while the more active ones can look forward to enjoyment on the tennis courts, golf courses and a trolley tour that takes visitors around the ruins of a plantation on the island.
Beaches are where the romance truly unfolds: Spend a weekend at the beach and rev up your romantic relationship. Spend a blissful day lazing under the sun on the surf and sand while you can enjoy the nights holed up in a plush room with your better half. Romance is what abounds in and links these aforementioned destinations where the backdrop of the beach coupled with various amenities and luxuries makes for the perfect setting that allows you to get down to fine-tuning your wooing skills.
