In honor of Earth Day, an online dating company asked me and some other travel bloggers to share five romantic destinations that also allow you to connect with nature.
For me, romance is all about getting away from the crowds to experience beautiful places alone with your partner or spouse. To that end, here are 5 of my favorite beautiful and remote places around the world.
1. Frenchman’s Cove Beach, Jamaica
This is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen! It’s located near Port Antonio on the remote east side of the island of Jamaica. This area gets very few tourists and has no resorts, just small hotels and bed and breakfasts buried in the jungle.
2. Molokai, Hawaii
Exploring the least visited island in Hawaii — Molokai. Molokai is the only Hawaiian island where you can visit one of several white sand beaches and have them all to yourself. And what’s more romantic than watching this sunrise with Maui off in the distance?
3. Cherry Blossom Season in Japan
Visiting Japan in the early spring at the beginning of Cherry Blossom Season. If you go in late February or early March you’ll miss the crowds, but still get to see the romantic pink and white spring buds. For romance and relaxation, stop by an onsen, one of the country’s natural hot spring spas. Most of the onsens are in rural areas so they are peaceful places to get away from the city and connect with nature.
4. Mendocino, California
Visit Mendocino County, California to stay at one of the many peaceful bed and breakfasts and enjoy the rugged, Northern California coast.
5. Torres del Paine, Chile
Hiking the “W” Trek in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile. This stunningly beautiful, four night hike through Chilean Patagonia will allow you to reconnect on the quiet and scenic trails. At the Los Cuernos Refugio campsite, you can even rent a private cabin with access to an outdoor hot tub overlooking a turquoise alpine lake and snowy mountain peaks.
