Top 10 Breathtaking Destinations in the World
We all are completely familiar with the feeling that we feel when one is in love, there is this need to share it with the world. To roam the ruins, to walk along forest boundaries, to go underwater and watch the fishes, to lay in the sun bathing in the light, to curl up in a blanket around a log fire and simply stare at the stars up there. We know how it feels to hold hands while your feet skirt the lush waters of the beach and what it is to speak your heart out amidst rock formations watching the sunlight dance from one corner to the other. Whether it is an extravagant trip that you are planning for valentine’s day with your loved one, or your desire to walk away from the hustle of life for a while with your spouse, or whether it is a honeymoon trip, we have gathered for you ten of the most breathtaking destinations in the world. Take our word for it, if you want peace, select either one of them and celebrate the love.
Isola Bella means beautiful island and this little island in Taormina, Italy fully justifies the name. The island is filled with colors and with every passing season the colors keep changing, and behold, one ravishing landscape after another for the onlookers to enjoy. It is also known as the Pearl of the Ionion Sea. The rocky beach of the small inhabited island attracts sunbathers and hikers every year. It also attracts snorkelers and has a Nike Dive Center where they teach different diving techniques. The pretty island is definitely worth a visit.
A lot of us have heard about the Grand Canyon of the Colorado river and we have heard old Indian legends about it, we have seen its images in the movies and we have seen the cultural treasures from the reserve but nothing can prepare us for what lies out there. The beautiful yellowish orange stripes on the walls and the sheer quietness of the place create an aura of romance so strong that one actually feels the heart skipping a beat. The massive canyon is one of the deepest canyons of the world. Sitting on top of the marine sediments that are frozen into solid masses, a new level of peace envelops you and it is an experience that cannot be told in words.
Little torch key is an isolated elegant island in the lower part of Florida keys. One look at the picture above is more than enough to attract anyone to this paradise of an island. The blue waters and the mesmerizing palm trees woo you into a dream so romantic that you forget a world that exists beyond this place. If you are looking for a weekend away from the troubles of the world, to reignite the spark in your relationship, to turn on the sparkle, then this is place for you.
Who does not dream of enjoying the sunset and in the most spectacular way possible. Let me tell you right here right now that if you have the money, the Greek Islands are a spot to cover. To contemplate the sunset in its full form, Oia Santorini is the place to be. It is completely understandable if you do not wish to get involved in the crowded cities of Rome and Athens (though they are a sight in their own as well) but Santorini can be your ticket to the gorgeous historic architecture, the crystal blue waters, and the rocks splashed with sparkling sunlight.
Aspen is more famous for the comings and goings of the rich and the famous. Touted to be the haven of the celebrities , this gorgeous place is an ideal romantic spot. True that it mostly attracts skiers but nonetheless, be it winter or summer, this place has excellent accommodations, landscapes that are to-die-for, awesome hiking destinations, and a hip hopping night life. The place even boasts of lazy romantic ranches where you can take a horse back ride, cuddle up in front of log fires, or take a romantic carriage ride.
It is also known as the Garden Isle, this breathtaking place is the ideal location if you are planning to tie the knot, if you want to spend your honeymoon or if you simply wish to renew you old ties. Being there is like being in a post card, with green hill tops, wild bushes and amazing trails to hike at, wonderful waterfalls, and those secluded beaches is more than one can ask for. Kauai includes everything from the larger-than-life cliffs of the Nepali coasts to endless chasms of the Waimea Canyon, this little island enchants you like no other destination ever would.
Every now and then we yearn for a beautiful natural landscape filled with a lot of greenery for taking a walk. We love holding hands and walking miles just to say what is in our hearts or to simply enjoy the scenic surroundings and bask in the glory of a loving relationship. If this sounds familiar then this destination would be a heaven for you and your better half. This bamboo forest in Japan is one of the oldest and as legend would have it when Edison was looking for a filament for one his first bulbs, the Governor recommended this forest and another one. Edison chose the other one though.
The Atlantis Resort that can be seen in the picture above, is the main attraction of the country and is enough to bring you flying over. This resort in the Bahamas is much talked about and is so overwhelming that you might even get lost on the ground floor because funnily enough, this resort is a continent itself in size. Once you are able to make your way out and about and cross the bridge as well as the Paradise island, which is the sister island to Nassau, you find yourself right in the middle of high end Bahamian culture, its food and the shopping it offers. Don’t miss out on this one if you can afford it, we recommend!
Okay, so maybe we have seen quite a lot of palm trees and blue waters and sea huts and coral reefs but this island, yes! Hayman Island Queensland, is by far the most awarded of all of the luxurious islands there and the best thing is that it is situated right on the Great Barrier Reef. It is truly a picture perfect destination for family vacations, reunions, weddings, and honeymoons. We suggest you pack your bag and get on the move! This is one place you won’t regret going to!
Maldives, a dreamer’s ideal destination, is the kind of place which invites and attracts every boy, girl, man, woman of whatever age group. The lush blue waters, the amazingly white sand beaches, the coral reef, the swaying palm trees, the endless blue skies, and what not. And if this is not already enough, get this, the island has resorts, over-the-water bungalows and sea huts. You name it and they have it. Imagine waking up in the bright sunshine and walking out on a terrace that is exactly above the water and its beauty is spread as far out as your eyes can see. What more can you ask for? What are you waiting for?
