There are so many beautiful beaches that it’s hard to choose the right one for you and your love. And when you’re looking for a special getaway as a couple, you want to make sure the beach you choose is ideal for both of you.

Whether you’re a couple that likes activities animals or simply a beautiful sunset, there is an option for everyone. Now that summer has just begun, don’t hesitate to book your flights and spend some time enjoying the beach.

Here are the top five beaches in the world for couples to enjoy.

Sunset in Isla Holbox

Isla Holbox, Mexico

What box? Is an island off the Yucatan Peninsula. The Cancun area is where Cancun is located, but it’s significantly more remote and peaceful than Cancun. It has beautiful turquoise water and marine life that rivals that of Cancun.

We can’t wait to swim with the whale sharks there one day as they pass between this little Island and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Laguna Beach, California

I can’t help myself but tell you about my hometown. The city of Laguna Beach is made up of dozens of cliffside coves with steps leading down to the shoreline. Be prepared to walk up and down some stairs but the cliffs also make each beach quite secluded.

When you’re not enjoying the waves of the Pacific, take advantage of the arts and restaurant scene in picturesque downtown Laguna.

Kauai, Hawaii

The island of Kauai reminds me of Neverland. It is an oasis of tranquil beaches with crystal-clear water and lush rainforest. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful, and there are so many different ways to explore it!

Whether you spend your trip in the sand kayaking along the Na Pali coast or hiking through Waimea Canyon, we promise that you’ll see things you’ve never seen before.

The Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve is one of the most beautiful places in Europe, but it tends to be overlooked. Its beauty lies in its natural beauty, not the glitzy resorts that are popular elsewhere. The beaches are sandy and crystal clear, with azure waters that are ideal for swimming. The sand has a fine texture that helps keep you cool.

We recommend visiting beaches in the cooler months of July and August because it’s much more comfortable to lounge around on the beach. Our favorite beaches are in Lagos, where we like to search for holes in cliffsides, venture through from beach to beach until we find some privacy, and just laze about. ####

Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos

Grace Bay Beach in the Bahamas has been voted the world’s best beach numerous times and it’s well deserved. It’s a perfectly white, pristine sandy beach with access to an incredible coral reef and playful JoJo the Dolphin.

Helpful  Tip

Go in high summer when other tourists are out of the area.

Oludeniz Lagoon, Turkey

Oludeniz Lagoon, Turkey

Turkey isn’t the first place that springs to mind when one considers a vacation destination, but that’s exactly why you should go! The beaches of Turkey are truly some of the hidden gems of the world. The water literally looks like someone dumped a giant blue ice cream into the lagoon without the ice cream.

It’s that blue!

Oludeniz is a beautiful and incredibly tranquil Turkish beach. The water here is shallow and the sand is soft and white. If you’re planning on spending some time at this beach, come prepared with plenty of sunscreens, and don’t build any castles!
