The proposal is an important rite in a couple’s relationship. It is something that you will both cherish and remember for the rest of your lives. Whether you choose to propose on valentine’s day, your anniversary or any other time of the year, creating the perfect romantic proposal is all about where you choose to do it. Here are 6 romantic places to propose.

Goa, India

Goa is a state in India that is known for its spectacular beaches, exciting party scene and fantastic food. Many of the beaches will be filled with revellers but there are also plenty of quiet beaches that would be the perfect setting for a proposal. Charter a boat and head to Butterfly Island where you will find Butterfly Beach, a stunning stretch of sand where few people go.

Galjibag Beach is another quiet beach and if you are lucky you may be able to see a loggerhead turtle building a nest. If you want to make sure the whole trip is perfect, get in touch with a Goa specialist who can help you plan everything.

Thailand, Asia

Thailand is a stunning country that is filled with gorgeous beaches, exciting jungles to trek through and many small islands that you can explore. If you head south of Bangkok you can go to Koh Samui and go island hopping so that you can have a beautiful island to yourselves to propose on.

Isle of Skye, Scotland

Take a walk to the Fairy Pools on The Isle of Skye in Scotland and propose amidst a jaw dropping background of multiple waterfalls that flow into pools of vibrant blues and greens. The area is surrounded by mountains and it is the perfect place for a romantic proposal, a refreshing swim, and a picnic.

Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia is in Turkey and it looks like something out of a fairytale. Head up in a hot air balloon and pop the question as you fly over this geographic dream formed by volcanic eruption with a little help from humans. The landscape is filled with towering boulders, fairy chimneys, and honeycombed hills.

The sky is filled with hot air balloons flying over this breathtaking sight. Make sure you stay in a cave hotel that is filled with modern amenities to create a lasting memory of this amazing place like nowhere else on earth.

Verona, Italy

If you both love literature then you can head to Verona, Italy, and re-enact a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Casa di Giulietta is a main attraction in Verona and although Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet never actually existed this balcony has gained popularity with couples over the past century. It is the perfect spot to bring Shakespeare’s masterpiece to life and declare eternal love for the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with.

The Cotswolds, England

The Cotswolds are a fantastic place to propose. You can rent a romantic cottage tucked away in a quiet and quaint town and propose under the stars of the stunning night sky. There are several other great options as well.
