If you want to extend your stay in Fiji and indulge together in even more luxury, the private island resort on Kokomo has wellness facilities including spa treatments, plus organised activities including fishing and Scuba diving. Read the full Fiji guide…

Visit the most romantic cruising locations of the world on a yacht

St. Lucia

Beautiful St. Lucia has been the site for many a proposal, marriage and honeymoon for adventurous spirits who love the fantastic Pitons and the surrounding marine park filled with corals. Hike the trails and stop off for a mineral mud bate meal will be even more satisfying, followed by a cosy night in watching a film on the sofa. Yacht rentals available in St Lucia…

The Whitsundays

Make memories among one of the world’s most striking natural wonders at the Great Barrier Reef, then retreat to the stunning Whitsunday Islands for some peace and quiet in pristine locations such as Whitehaven Beach and Chance Bay.

British Virgin Islands

The Baths on Virgin Gorda are sensational, where the round boulders rest upon golden white sands. Yet it’s among the more distant islands where true freedom is to be found.

Natural beauty abounds in this wonderfully warm paradise, where nature has mostly been left to its own devices and even given a helping hand – the purposeful sinking of a dozen hulls in the 1990s created Wreck Alley, now thriving with angelfish, grouper and myriad other species that would taste wonderful freshly barbequed by your expert onboard chef.

Water sports enthusiasts fill the hours with adrenaline-fuelled fun or while away the hours kayaking together along the coast. Scuba diving, free diving and snorkelling will be richly rewarded while on land around Cooper Island there are hideaway bars ready and waiting to receive luxury yachts.

US Virgin Islands

When you want all of the best international shopping and luxury goods coupled with amazing wildlife and verdant surrounds, the US Virgin Islands has the glitz and glamour right in the heart of the Caribbean. The history of the area has been carefully preserved as well: Walk along the sea front to find and the 17th Century Fort Christian and the Gallery St. Thomas – an excellent place to pick up a souvenir of your stay.

Water Island is easily reached south of the main island of St. Thomas (which has an international airport) and this barely inhabited place is an easy escape from the hustle and bustle for some quality time with your loved one. In the Virgin Islands National Park it’s not hard to see how Honeymoon Beach received its name – the only wonder is why this stretch of sand was chosen over all the other magnificent fine-sand beaches to be found across the island.

Santorini‘s locals are as warm and welcoming as the weather; so much so that you’ll wish your holiday would go on longer so that you can spend more time among the colourful cobblestone streets and the vineyards along the coastal trails. It’s considered Greece‘s most romantic island and is a wedding destination for couples from across the world. Black, red and white sand beaches can be found along this volcanic island and the tempting warm waters teeming with colourful fish.

The culinary delights include cherry tomatoes, white aubergines and locally made goat cheese to add unique flavours to dishes as you dine at sunset to the background of the famous Santorini windmills. Santorini yacht charter guide…
