Miami and the surrounding areas are popular with tourists for all kinds of reasons; fantastic food, stunning scenery, world-class dining and of course, some of the best sailing, water sports and fishing in the world. But not everyone is looking for action on a trip to Miami. Some want to take things slow and enjoy a little relaxation and romance. And that’s where Miami yacht charter for romantic getaways comes in.
Romance, South Florida Style
Many would say that Miami and South Florida already offer three very important elements of a great romantic getaway courtesy of Mother Nature; bright sun, stunning seas and miles of golden sands. It’s hard to disagree with that, but the Miami area has a lot more to offer to romance seekers than a great day at the beach, especially if you take advantage of Miami yacht charter. Here’s a look at some of them:
Exploring Miami Beach
Miami Beach has always been considered a glamorous, mythical place where some of the most beautiful people in the world head out to play. Considered the ‘nightclub capital of the world’ if you enjoy a night of dancing with your significant other, you are certainly in for a treat. And the number of amazing restaurants that line the streets is almost unbelievable.
Miami Beach is also great for quieter dates. Simply strolling through the stunning Art Deco district or heading to a quiet corner of one of the beautiful beaches offers a simpler form of romance that many will truly appreciate.
Most of the best sites in Miami Beach can be taken in from the water – and stunning sites they are too from that vantage – and there are several marinas where your private yacht charter can stop off for a while to allow you to wander around this magical, vibrant and endlessly surprising area to your heart’s content.
If your idea of the ideal romantic getaway is simply spending some quiet, laid back time with your partner in beautiful surroundings with easy access to fabulous food and delicious drinks then a trip to Bimini – which is around two hours from Miami by sea in a luxury Miami yacht rental – is a must.
Author, humorist and local Miami legend Dave Barry once wrote of Bimini; “Bimini is wonderful. The most wonderful thing about it is that, because of the prevailing winds, currents, tides, rum supply, etc., Bimini is located smack-dab in the center of what scientists believe to be the world’s most powerful Lethargy Zone. It is extremely difficult to remain tense there. The moment you arrive, lethargy waves start washing over you, seeping into your body, turning your skeletal system into taffy.”
As very colorful as Mr. Barry’s words are, he’s absolutely right. Once you hit the island your cares seem to float away. One could be more than content simply sitting on the beach with a bucket of beers and some fabulous local conch for hours, and if the love of your life is there too how much better could it get?
For the more adventurous a trip to the Fountain of Youth – yes, that one, the one Ponce de Leon discovered and waxed lyrical about – is located on the south of the island – and what better place to declare your undying love for your significant other than a tropical paradise that it’s claimed can grant you eternal youth?
Private Dinner Cruising
Have less time to spend on a romantic getaway but want to do something really special with what time you do have? Then a private dinner cruise is the perfect choice.
A private dinner cruise on a Miami yacht rental is not a matter of simply stepping onto a boat and eating a preprepared meal and drinking a few bottles of generic wine. Instead it’s a chance to enjoy a fully catered five-star meal in the most luxurious of surroundings while taking in some of the most amazing sites to be found in around Miami. You can be the stars of your own romantic movie for the evening and enjoy a truly memorable time together, whatever the occasion.
For Active Daters
If action and adventure are more your dating style, then a Miami yacht charter is also the perfect choice for you. From fun with ‘water toys’ like jet skis, tubes and water skis to a day spent chasing down some off the most challenging to catch fish to be found in the water anywhere you can pursue the exciting, active date you prefer and best of all? You can still end the day on the water with a fabulous romantic dinner under the stars!
