Whether popping the question, enjoying a honeymoon, celebrating an anniversary or simply rekindling the flames of passion, cruise to one of these heart-shaped islands on your loved-up yacht charter for the ultimate romantic getaway.
Tiny, heart-shaped Galesnjak lies off Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast not far from the mainland town of Zadar. Uninhabited, the island’s untamed interior of wild shrubs is fringed by deserted pebble beaches and the azure waters of the Adriatic.
Its unusual shape was first discovered in the early 19th century by cartographer Charles-François Beautemps-Beaupré but, after being captured on Google Earth in 2009, couples cruising the region have been unable to resist its romantic allure.
Love birds looking for idyllic island bliss will certainly find their paradise here
The heart-shaped island resort of Tavarua lays close to Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu. From playing tennis and strolling through the jungle to lazing on the beautiful beaches and snorkelling in the coral-rich waters, there's plenty to do.
Indeed, love birds looking for idyllic island bliss will certainly find their paradise here but, as there are also world-class surf breaks such as the iconic Cloudbreak nearby, it's also a hotspot for couples with a passion for riding the waves.
A scenic flight over Heart Reef is the best way of admiring its beauty
A spectacular, heart-shaped coral formation, Heart Reef has been one of the most renowned sights of the Whitsundays ever since 1975 when it was snapped by a pilot scouting out opportunities for promotional material.
A scenic flight over the reef, either by seaplane or helicopter, is the best way to see the site due to its protected status. But the views from above are incredible and many a marriage proposal has taken place from such a vantage point.
Known as ‘the most romantic spot in French Polynesia’, the uninhabited, low-lying atoll of Tūpai lies 10 miles north of Bora Bora. Pristine coral encloses a shallow lagoon fringed with whiter-than-white sand and swaying coconut palms.
Lovers can play out their Robinson Crusoe fantasies here, alongside the humpback whales who arrive in the surrounding calm waters to give birth between July and October. While, come November, sea turtles arrive to lay their eggs on the beach.
Named after the Greek word for heart
Dubbed by locals as Kardia – a Greek word for heart – this little speck of land lies off the more widely known island of Sapientza in the Peloponnesus region of Greece.
The island itself is rocky and barren but, lapped by turquoise waters and tallying a population of just seven, sweethearts on a superyacht vacation can drop anchor here and spend a day revelling in its sheer seclusion.
