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!
