10 Reasons the Beach is the Perfect Place for a Romantic Getaway

Are you looking for a romantic place to spend Valentine's Day? Some places are just naturally romantic, but there's no place that lends itself to romance like the beach! There is just something special about that magical combination of water and sand that brings out the romantic in all of us. This week we have ten of the best reasons to choose a beach getaway as your next romantic destination.

The Beach at Night is Magic

If you've ever walked along the beach at night you know the stars seem closer, the air crisper, and the sand beneath your toes just makes you feel closer to something magical. There's a reason a lot of romantic movies have scenes on the beach at night. One could say the beach and the night are the definition of a romantic setting.

Dining by the Water

There are romantic dinners and then there are dinners at romantic waterside restaurants. Picture the sound of the water in the background and the moonlight reflecting off the water. Oak Island and Southport have several waterfront restaurants that are the perfect setting for your romantic getaway. 

Stress Free Is the Key

The beach has a way of washing life's stresses away. Maybe it's the steady rhythm of the waves gently colliding with the shore or maybe it's the fresh sea air. No matter what the reason is, we can probably all agree that finding romance is a little easier when we are stress free. I mean nobody has a romantic getaway at the office cafeteria! Start your romantic getaway off right with a stress free destination... Oak Island!

Plenty of Couple Friendly Events

Sure romantic dinners are great and we all love walks on the beach, but if you're the type of couple that loves adventure, then Oak Island is the perfect destination! We have kayaking, SUP, deep sea fishing, and if you're really into heart pounding adventure- you can try sky diving right here on Oak Island! Need more adventures?

Sunsets and Sunrises

Imagine waking up to the sun filling your room as it rises over the Atlantic Ocean. Can you feel the breeze flowing through the curtains on your oceanfront home? If there is a better way to wake up, we sure don't know what it is. The best part is the beach offers two great ways to enjoy your day. There's the glorious sunrise and those unforgettable sunsets- what a combination!
