Mother Nature is truly a romantic artist, as we can see in many of its wonderful creations. It has created many natural islands shaped like hearts you can visit all over the world. Uninhabited or not, in the middle of a lake or in the sea, amidst a tropical jungle, the mountains, or in a tropical paradise, there’s no doubt they are jewels on the planet. If you want to impress on a date or choose a stunning destination to spend your honeymoon, you’ll probably think beyond Paris, Rome or some place a little more exotic.
But how about going to a unique and romantic place, like a heart-shaped island? So let’s get inspired by a compilation of the most amazing heart-shaped islands in the world.
GALESNJAK ISLAND – CROATIA
This first heart-shaped landmass became quite famous when it was brought to public attention courtesy of Google Earth a couple of years back. Known variously as the Island of Love or Lover’s Island, its real name is Galesnjak, and it’s located just off the coast of Croatia.
HEART REEF – AUSTRALIA
Located in Great Barrier Reef off Whitsunday Islands, it is a stunning coral formation that has been naturally formed into the shape of a heart. It can only be appreciated from the air, due to its protected status. The reef is a popular icon amongst travellers and is the site of many flight proposals.
TAVARUA ISLAND – FIJI ISLANDS
Surrounded by a coral reef, this romantic heart-shaped island is nestled in the South Pacific Ocean. Located near Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island, Tavarua Island is home to a luxurious all-inclusive resort.
HARBOR ISLAND – MAINE – USA
Located in the middle of Bucks Harbor, Brooksville, Maine, this forested heart-shaped island is home to a modest cabin on its shore. Besides the bay being a very popular summer colony, Harbor Island offers privacy and peace. The island was sold to a state-wide land conservation organization in order to protect this natural beauty.
TUPAI ISLAND – FRENCH POLYNESIA
This heart-shaped paradise island is near Bora Bora, where pure white-sand beaches with coconut trees frame a shallow turquoise lagoon. Tupai is actually an uninhabited atoll, named the most romantic spot in Tahiti. Some companies even offer wedding packages for couples that want to get married there.
