Wind in your hair, sea breeze kissing your skin, your worries and cares slipping further away with each shift of sand between your toes... There's a reason that "beachy" is so often synonymous with "sexy." Beaches bring out the best in us; the relaxed, fun-loving versions of ourselves. So, of course, mixing your shore session with a little romance makes all the sense in the world. To that end, we've gathered some of the sweetest, sultriest, most romantic beach getaways on the planet to bring a little more love into your life.
10. St. Barthelemy
Speaking of showing love, plenty of it has been voiced from around the world for this vacation-favorite Caribbean island in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Known for their pampering, St. Barts has long boasted some of the best dining in the region with outposts from celebrity chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten as well as exemplary classical French cuisine (it is still a part of France, after all.) High-end boutiques from Hermes, Louis Vouitton, and Cartier (just in case someone needs to pick up a special ring before the trip is over) also line the streets. One trip and you’ll understand why St. Barts has so many devotees.
