The Most Romantic Place in the World


We recently asked our readers to share with us their thoughts on the┬ámost romantic destinations in the world. From the Greek Islands, to your own backyard, here’s what you said…

Rhonda: “The visual splendour of Greece, it’s contrasting landscapes, treasures of the past, the incredible brightness of it’s light, the sculptured coasts and blue seas, it’s a uniquely romantic place to be.”

Diana: “The unimaginative say Paris; but I say Mt Druitt (NSW) because all it takes for romance is some imagination and ability to get down to it!”

Dawn: “Lying back on the perfect white sands of Cable Beach, Broome WA, watching the sun set with a glass of Champers and my honey beside me.”

Amanda: “My bedroom without my children!”

Vera: “Most romantic place in the world is at a place called Oia on the island of Santorini in the Greek Isles. The sunset to be viewed from this place is truly magnificent with the suns rays of red/orange/gold combinations falling on the azure waters of the Aegean.”

Theresa: “Well I think having dinner on Centrepoint Tower Restaurant and looking out on the window side to see Sydney city view at night with your partner is the most romantic place – right here in Sydney!”

Shari: “A little town called Cody in Wyoming in the USA. Cuddling up with your loved one in front of the fire in a log cabin, overlooking the mountains. The scenery is picturesque and the town very quaint.”

Renee: “Without question; the most romantic place in the world (that I have seen so far) is the Cinque Terre on the Mediterranian coast line of Italy. The Cinque Terre consists of 5 tiny villages built right above the sea. They are surrounded by large; rolling hills of olive groves and vineyards; as the villages make their own outstanding olive oils and wines. There are beautiful hiking tracks through the vineyards linking the villages with amazing views over the sea.”

Linda: “Noosa, Sunshine Coast, QLD. Beautiful restaurants, beautiful weather, great romantics strolls after dinner along the boardwalk.”

Liz: “Disneyland. I know that might sound funny, seeing it’s meant for kids, but it’s a place where a couple can just let their hair down and have fun. All the worries of their lives are left at the gates letting romance shine through!”

Tes: “The most romantic place in the world to me is VonaVona Lagoon in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands. It’s a beautiful stretch of turquiose waters dotted with lonely little islands, it makes you feel like you’re the only two people left on earth!”

Janine: “Paris toward the end of Summer. A balmy evening spent viewing the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower, followed by a long walk along the Champs-Elysee with the love of your life.”

Kristy: “The local RSL. (In Tuscany) :)”

Jennifer: “A winding road call Clara’s Vale in Ireland. The trees have grown over the road and its like driving through a tunnel. The sun filters through the leaves creating the most amazing colours. You feel as though you are the only person in the world when you are there.”
