How to Create a Romantic Navarre Beach Getaway in 2020
With so many concerns about travel this year, things like spontaneous romantic getaways are harder to come by. But no fear! We can help add a bit more romance to your life by offering tips on planning an easy-to-get-to – ultra-romantic — getaway to Navarre Beach, Florida!
Step 1: Find Your Romantic Getaway Spot
You want to find someplace special for the two of you, so choosing the right place to stay is crucial.
Are you imagining being secluded, surrounded by breathtaking natural wonders? Coldwater Gardens has a number of beautiful cabins, cabanas, glamping tents and even treehouses for you to stay in. Likewise, Adventures Unlimited has a number of eclectic, outdoorsy places for an unforgettable stay. These includes rustic campsites, charming cabins, a renovated train caboose and their luxurious Lorax Loft treehouse. At either of these locations, you can find picturesque spots for late-night star-gazing, or cuddle around a cozy campfire. Either way, sparks will fly!
Want less rustic and more pampered? Beachside hotels are a classic for a reason. The Springhill Suites of Navarre is a stunning hotel right on the Gulf of Mexico shoreline, which means you can catch spectacular sunrises and sunsets every day. When it’s time to relax or play on the beach, simply stroll from your room to the Gulf via the hotel’s beach walkway.
Looking for something even more private? The many vacation home rentals in the area will give you all the privacy and comforts of home – but away from home.
Step 2: Have a Lovely Meal
Falling in love over wine and a candlelit dinner may be a cliche, but it doesn’t make it any less romantic. Here are some of our favorite spots for a romantic meal in Navarre Beach.
Located in the Springhill Suites, the Beach House Bar & Grill is an elegant seafood restaurant with dining inside or outside overlooking the beach. Enjoy fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and more.
From charcuterie boards and wine pairings to live music and craft beers, you can combine romance and revelry at this adorable wine bar near the Santa Rosa Sound.
Located a short drive from Navarre Beach in a beautifully restored house in historic Milton, the Blackwater Bistro offers charm and delicious upscale Southern favorites you’re sure to enjoy.
Step 3: Plan Fun Activities
It’s not enough to just be in a different locale—you need to experience it! Luckily, the Navarre Beach area offers a number of different romantic activities to suit you and your partner’s preferences.
For the nature-lovers, The Blackwater River State Park and Blackwater River State Forest have many beautiful sights. Whether you prefer hiking in solitude with your beloved or are going for a chivalrous adventure on horseback, there are many wonderful trails to explore. Want less exercise and more relaxation? Float down the pristine Blackwater River together on kayak, canoe or even tube. Bonus Tip: If you’re into delightfully cheesy lines, we recommend comparing the Blackwater River (known for being exceptionally clear and pure) to your love for each other.
Besides the North County forests, you can explore nature in the South County where our unspoiled, uncrowded beaches reside. Perfect for sunrise or sunset viewings, you can go for a stroll on the sand, swim in the warm Gulf of Mexico and Navarre Sound waters, or even enjoy some quality time under the boardwalk at the Navarre Pier.
Looking for the best of both? Take a hand-in-hand stroll down Milton’s Riverwalk. You can treat yourself to the sweets at Scoops Ice Cream while getting to know each other better. It’ll be like a scene straight out of a rom-com, but even more special since this story is about you!
Step 4: Be Yourself!
Your partner is with you for a reason, so just be yourself and don’t be afraid to wing it. Vacations are for exploration and fun— and as long as you’re doing both, you can’t go wrong.
Now that you have the tools, all that’s left is the execution. So bring more love into your life and book your romantic getaway to Navarre Beach today!
