We love our kids. But let’s face it. A little time away can be a breath of fresh air to recharge with your partner — and ultimately lead to a happier, stronger family dynamic.
We need time to not worry about the bills, or softball practice, or why Emma’s room is stilla mess. So, here’s a take on the top 5 best parents-only overseas vacation destinations that are worth the visit.
We’ve all seen the pictures. Chalk white buildings with little blue tops overlooking a crystal clear shimmering ocean.
People from all over the world come to visit Santorini for its black sand beaches, cliffside hiking, colorful sunsets, volcano overlooks, local arts and crafts, fresh cuisine, and so much more.
Because there is so much to do here, it’s a great place for almost anyone.
Want to spend the whole day sunbathing on the beach? ✓
Up for a volcano hiking adventure? ✓
Looking to sip on some wine with some locals? ✓
Hoping to capture a photograph of historic landmarks? ✓
You really can’t go wrong here. Santorini is literally a lovers' destination where you can sip, dine, and unwind in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Do rolling hills, vast mountains, and sweeping plains call to you? Tuscany is the place where the scenery is something out of a movie. If romance, exceptional wine, and deliciousItalian food is on your mind — this is the place for you.
Most people know Tuscany for its world class culinary scene, but it has so much more to offer. Go horsebacking riding through countryside vineyards. Take a trip to the Mediterranean coast line. Or visit Florence, the Capital of Tuscany, and the iconic leaning tower of Piza.
This is the perfect place for any lover of rich history — who also likes to live a little on the side of luxury.
Side Note: Save room for dessert! The gelato is out of this world.
A destination of dreams.
I think everyone imagines being whisked away to an island paradise at some point in their lives — white sand beaches, turquoise waters, hammocks under leafy palm trees.
So why not go?
According to Maldives.org — “The Maldives consists of 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of twenty-seven atolls situated in the Indian Ocean. The country covers an area approximately 90,000 square kilometers, of which only 298 square kilometers is dry land. The islands are of average one to two square kilometers in area, and no individual island is longer than eight kilometers.”
A true escape unlike any other.
This is a dream spot if relaxation is on your mind. The Maldives live on island time. Any activity is at your own leisure and is perfect for spending a little alone time with your partner.

That’s right. Iceland’s history lies in the hands of Vikings that traveled the seas and landed on its shores. Today Reykjavik is a bustling city with a vast mountainous backdrop.
Don’t let city life fool you, however. Iceland is a lover's paradise that has many options to find some peace and tranquility.

You really won’t find anywhere else that compares to that of Iceland. It’s the perfect place for romance, natural wonders, and historic charm.
This is as close to the definition of paradise as you’re probably going to get. Bali has been a destination for people all over the world to come and hone their inner peace.
Beaches, Mountains, Jungles — Bali has it all. The history is rich and rooted in spiritual practices. You’ll find cuisine, art, and culture unlike any other.
If you’re looking for hustle and bustle, this is probably not the place for you.
On the other hand, if you like natural raw beauty such as hidden waterfalls, glimpsing island wildlife, volcano tours, an underwater world full of sea creatures, and a charming village-by-the-sea feel — get your plane ticket ready, because this is one place you won’t want to miss.
Pack Your Bags
