While it may never be mentioned in the same breath as Fiji, Tahiti or some of the South Pacific’s other romantic hot-spots, the kind of cosy isolation you can only find on an island by itself in the middle of an ocean shouldn’t be understated. What’s more, you won’t find it crowded with holidaymakers desperate for the perfect breakaway, in fact about the only thing you might run into on Norfolk Island are the cows who move slowly about the roadways as if they own the place (and be warned, under the quirky set of local laws they virtually do).

Most people know Norfolk Island as a nasty penal settlement from the 1800s, but what they don’t appreciate is just how beautiful the landscape is.

Staff feature writers for Holidays for Couples, Lynn and Steve Hill, recently had a mini ‘breakation’ in Fiji

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from Nadi airport is the stunning Denarau Island, so a holiday here is very easy.

There are a number of luxurious resorts on Denarau, all dotted strategically along the beach, lapped by the crystal clear blue waters of Nadi Bay. However, one resort stands out amongst the crowd – theSheraton Fiji Resort.

Arriving in Santorini by boat, a bewitching panorama of powder-dusted cornices between sea and sky, veiled in romance and escapism, slowly reveals itself. Clusters of sugarcoated cave houses almost tumble down the lava-encrusted cliffs to greet you.

Tanya Joslin discovers the beauty of Sri Lanka … and why it is a perfect destination for couples.

After more than a quarter century of civil war, peace has returned to ‘the island of serendipity’. And, along with this newfound peace comes tourists–lots of them–much to the delight of the Sri Lankan people who are natural-born hosts. There is so much to do and see in this tiny Indian Ocean country but beware: the driving is often painfully slow. So, unless your plan is to simply unwind on one of the island’s gorgeous beaches, the best way to experience Sri Lanka is to map out a route based around the sites you want to see.  All visitors arrive just outside of Colombo so take advantage of your entry point and explore Sri Lanka’s most cosmopolitan town upon arriving.
