Romance is a subjective term. What rocks the boat for one couple may leave another utterly unmoved. So perhaps it's best if we describe our criteria for selecting these 'romantic beach retreats'. Then you can see if this resonates with you...
Typically, we recommend beach resorts or hotels which are relatively small, with lots of charm and personal detail. Unless you are happy to be one of several honeymoon couples, these may not be the places that shout the loudest about special honeymoon rates. (Though they may be available).
These beach retreats may be quite remote and a little tricky to get to. But what's an hour or two of extra travelling versus five days of utter bliss afterwards?
Others may be tucked away coastal gems in little towns. Here, the joy is not just the expanse of beach but the tranquillity and authenticity of the experience.
However, we've also chosen some Cape Town beach retreats. These offer the winning mix of a romantic ambience and stunning beach location. Yet they are only a few minutes drive from all the sights and restaurants of one of the best-loved vibey cities in the world!

Holiday of a lifetime"Just wanted to write a quick note to say a big thank you for all your help in arranging what was a fantastic trip for the three of us. My dad loved every minute of it. And said it was a holiday of a lifetime – which is what I of course had hoped it would be for all of us. " Jo & Family
Most amazing holiday in SA"Thank you for the most amazing holiday in South Africa. The three lodges were all selected with great care and each had a different atmosphere. All transfers worked entirely smoothly and we were even met on arrival at Johannesburg airport to be escorted the few yards to the airport hotel! Cedarberg really came into their own when BA messed up theoutgoing flight (twice) and Ginny spent her entire Bank Holiday weekend sorting it out for us. " Mr Mike Ricks, UK
