a couple enjoying a sunset at Cocoa Beach

Maybe it’s the iconic beach moments in rom-coms or just the stunning sunsets accompanied by the soft sounds of lapping water, but the beach will forever be the place for lovers.

It’s the perfect place to enjoy a romantic moment with your special someone. Sure long walks on the beach are fun—but if you’re looking to take date night a few notches higher, here are some great ideas to try.

1. A Romantic Picnic on the Beach

A picnic is a pretty cute date idea because it shows that you’re willing to put in some effort, but planning one at the beach helps elevate it to the next level. Whether you choose to do it at sunrise, sunset, or even by the moonlight, a beach picnic can definitely help you am up the charm. Don’t forget to pack the essentials: easy-to-handle food, drinks, blankets, and mosquito repellant.

Take your significant other for a romantic boat ride with just the two of you. The Indian River Lagoon is especially calm and quiet during the winter months because there are fewer tourists in the area. Enjoy the best of Florida’s natural beauty with serene lakes, lush mangrove marshes, and marine life.
