Travelling is an activity that brings a lot of happiness to people when they have the thought of going on holiday and taking a break, but going on a baecation with your partner is something special because you’re not only creating memories in another destination but you are creating memories with someone special.

Locations like the Maldives or Paris in France are just some of the destinations that couples head to for their romantic getaways, whether it’s to explore a new destination, stroll down a beach that isn’t located in South Africa or to escape the winter blues in South Africa.

Here’s the lowdown on some of the most popular and most romantic island getaways.

Bali, Indonesia

It’s no secret that Bali is the people’s favourite when it comes to island getaways, and it is definitely one of the popular options for couples who desire to have a romantic vacation.

Celebrity couples like Dineo Moeketsi and Solo, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and Melinda Bam and Adriaan Bergh have all travelled to the island destination for time away from their busy schedules.

With the gorgeous scenery that the chalets and resorts offer, who wouldn’t want to travel to Indonesia for their own romantic getaway?

Mykonos, Greece

If there was no Ibiza, Mykonos would be considered the top island getaway that also serves as a party venue.  The Greek island is a very popular destination for both couples and single guests.

Celebrities like Virgil Abloh, Ariana Grande and Leonardo Di Caprio have all had their fair share of Mykonos, while couples like basketball star Dwayne Wade and actress Gabrielle Union have shared their posts on Instagram of them taking in the sun while on holiday on the Greek island.

The Bahamas can be considered as one of the most popular destinations for couples not only from around the world but more specifically from the United States of America.

The island is a haven that hardly experiences any winter, so it is a great destination all year round, with clear seas and white sandy beaches - who wouldn’t want to travel to the island for a holiday.

Celebrity couples like Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West have had their fair share of holidays on the tropical island, booking five-star cabanas while drinking some of the Bahamas famous tequila. Bottoms up!

Nothing says romantic vacation like snorkelling in the clear sea and spotting dolphins with your romantic partner - that’s what you can expect while on holiday on the beautiful island of Mauritius.
