Island romance

The perfect island escapes for couples

Blissfully remote and blessed with idyllic scenery, laidback vibes and luxurious accommodation, most tropical islands are, by their very nature, undeniably romantic. While all of our island destinations are beautifully suited for couples seeking a romantic escape, some just happen to take romance to the next level.

Whether you’re plotting a proposal, having an island wedding, celebrating your honeymoon or just needing a relaxing excuse to share a romantic adventure-for-two, we have two postcard-perfect islands in mind.

From the powdery soft beaches of a small private island off the coast of Zanzibar to those dreamy, bucket list overwater bungalows of the Maldives, couples in search of island romance, look no further.

Mnemba Island


Mnemba Island | Zanzibar

A heart-shaped hideaway, &Beyond Mnemba Island is an exclusive barefoot beach paradise with 12 rustically romantic beachside bandas, for just 24 guests. Couples can relax and unwind on their own stretch of powdery soft beachfront and fill their days with as much, or as little, as they please.

Or stay on the main island of Zanzibar itself, with its fragrant spice plantations, historic Stone Town, vibrant marketplaces, elegant mosques, labyrinth of winding alleys, and iconic, intricately-carved wooden doors. An equally romantic island escape, steeped in history and culture, where couples can combine beach relaxation with old town adventure.
