"And the purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."

— Eleanor Roosevelt


Want to know what the key to successful romance travel is? It's about traveling to destinations that neither of you has ever visited before. Having new and fresh experiences together is the best way to keep the romance alive. Whether it's your honeymoon or a much-needed vacation, romantic getaways at off-the-beaten-path destinations can create magic.


Studded with unmatched beauty, luxury, natural wonders, and mesmerizing sights, here's our list of five lesser-known but romantic destinations for couples from around the world.

1. Koror, Palau Koror is the main island of the Republic of Palau. It's not the capital city of this island nation, but it is the epicenter of commercial activity in Palau. Thanks to its slow-paced vibe and remote location, Koror and its surrounding islands in Palau aren't your usual tourist destination. Surrounded by water around all sides, Palau is a relatively untouched island nation. Couples in love can blissfully hide out here, in the lap of Palau's luxury and natural beauty.

Home to some of the most elegant and beautiful overwater bungalows and luxurious beach resorts, Koror in Palau offers couples the best setting for luxury honeymoons. You will find the softest white sand on the beaches of Palau. The waters are crystal clear and clean.

Palau is known for scuba diving and snorkeling. Most of its visitors come here to explore marine wildlife. For the love of thrilling experiences, dive in and swim with the prettiest underwater creatures you have ever seen! A kayak ride to the famous Rock Islands is quite a memorable experience. Palau's cuisine is heavily influenced by Chinese, Korean, and American flavors. They bring the freshest produce and seafood to your plate. Enjoy a lovely, candle-lit dinner in Palau's finest beach restaurants and keep up the romance.


2. Fethiye, Turkey When it comes to romance travel in Turkey, people usually visit Istanbul, Cappadocia, or Bodrum. However, not a lot of people know about a little harbor town called Fethiye. Fethiye is like a starting point for many other exotic destinations off the Turkish Coastline. Fethiye has a history that dates back almost 5000 years, and today, it's the perfect holiday destination with a fun bunch of things to do. Perfect for romance and luxury honeymoons, Fethiye is very close to picturesque sights like the Old Town and the Fethiye Museum. If you wish to visit some historical sites while you're vacationing hand-in-hand, Fethiye has plenty to show you.

3. Ella, Sri Lanka Ella is Srilanka's best-kept secret - a mountain village tucked into the island nation's southern forests. Encapsulated by forest-covered hills and rocks, Ella is a gorgeous place to travel to. If you wish to mix romance with nature and mind-blowing scenery, this place is ideal for you.

Andaman Islands, India If you have luxury travel on your mind, the Andaman Islands in India are your best bet. Being on this island nation is all about indulging in ultimate relaxation. Abundant in nature, beaches, and culture, Andaman Islands are a low-key destination known for their turquoise waters and friendly locals.

Enjoy some lively music and dance the night away. From soothing couple-special massages by the beach to refreshing swims in the ocean, there's so much to do and feel on the Andaman Islands. 5.
