Cape Town, South Africa
Cape town is a true beauty to behold. Home to very scenic views and the majestic table Mountains, you can be sure of experiencing the most magical moments.

No matter where you are or choose to do in Cape town, the table mountains serve as the perfect backdrop.
Lamu is an island off the coast of Kenya with heavy middle eastern and Indian influence. The helicopter ride into the island starts you off on how dreamy the island is. It really doesn’t get better than that. Enjoy Lamu’s beautiful beaches, fascinating architecture, rich history and lastly, its very welcoming people with your lover.
Without bias, Zanzibar is one place you should escape to with your love especially in honor of a special holiday. This island is full of beauty and mystery blessed with crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. Explore Prison island and its rich history, go sailing on the waters, or go snorkeling, whatever you choose to do in Zanzibar, you’re in for a romantic vacation.
Mahe Island, Seychelles
One of the world’s oldest islands is definitely a place you want to spend some time in with your love. To describe Seychelles as mesmerizing will be putting it mildly. If you and your lover are beach bums, then Seychelles is absolutely perfect for you. For the best experience, go island hopping and sip on some coconut water.
Of course, the list would be incomplete without a mention of Maldives! This dreamy and magical island is perfect for lovers especially honeymooners as there are tons of activities you can both indulge in. Go for a romantic couples massage, a luxury cruise or even learn how to scuba dive together.
