Windswept stretches of sand, the perfume of a salt-scented breeze, and the melody of the surf combine to make the beach the perfect place to reconnect with loved ones – especially on Valentine’s Day. But if you want to give Cupid a little extra help, consider these snuggle-worthy experiences.
Vow to Wow
There’s nothing more romantic than saying I do again, and that goes double when you have sand between your toes. On Valentine’s Day you and your sweetie can renew your wedding vows in special ceremonies on Siesta Key (Say I Do Again) and Lovers Key (Love at Lovers Key). Both events require preregistration.
Castles in the Sand
Master Sand Sculptor Rick Mungeam of Beach Sand Sculptures will build your beloved a dream castle on the white sands of Florida’s Emerald Coast. He can also help you say ‘I love you’, make your wedding extra special, or even propose. Apparently the answer so far has always been yes!
The Ultimate Rub
Let the sea breeze caress your shoulders --along with the hands of a skilled masseuse – when you indulge in a Couples Massage by the Ocean in Miami. Add a bottle of champagne or a picnic basket to complete the occasion.
Take Dolphins to Heart
A Valentine’s Day Sunset Dolphin Cruise on Sanibel Island has romance written all over it. You’ll explore the tranquil waters of San Carlos Bay, watch hundreds of birds flocking in for their evening roost, and laugh at dolphins frolicking in the boat’s wake.
Sometimes the most down-to-earth pleasures are the sweetest. It’s hard to beat a sunset walk on the beach with your loved one. Just hold hands, listen to the waves, and tell your honey why they’re so special to you.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself. ~Jean Anouilh
