These are some of the best beach destinations for couples, and promise an unforgettable getaway.

2. Capri, Italy
Italy is known as one of the most romantic places in the world, and is therefore a fantastic destination for couples.

Gazing out at the gorgeous coastline with your other half is sure to be a memorable and romantic experience.
