Now to the amorous and the seductive part of Italy–Capri. Famous for its waterfront villas and limestone cliffs, Capri is a 5-square mile island just off the coast of Naples. This is the playground of the rich and famous. To have a more private moment, you should keep walking the boutique-lined streets and head toward the serene village of Ana Capri. You will find here the 19th Century Villa San Michele with its ivy-covered statues. You can visit Capri on a day trip from Naples or you may want to spend a few days with your partner here.

Santorini is the most romantic Greek island. You will fall in love with the place surely–its caves, blue domed churches. A fantastic island paradise for couples, Santorini’s wealth of diversions is its wines, beaches, and the archaeological sites. The Bronze Age settlement of Akrotíri, sometimes referred to as the “Minoan Pompeii,” is the most appealing site on this island. (http://www.visitgreece.gr/en/greek_islands/santorini)
Hawaii is among the more popular romantic island destinations, probably because of its easy accessibility. Hawaii is gifted with mountains, canyons, rainforests, waterfalls, and much more. A six-hour hike will introduce you to the mysteries of this cupid’s island. (http://www.kauai.gov/)
This 5-mile long island is the better substitute for other Asian destinations such as Phuket and Samui. A 45-minute flight from Manila would take you to Caticlan, where you shall board a boat and head for this island, home to perhaps the world’s softest sands. There is a lot to see and do at Boracay Island in Philippines, but you may just want to do nothing and relax as you hold on to your partner. (http://www.boracayisland.org/)
