Love clearly is all around. You just have to know where to look, and sometimes it depends only on your point of view. 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.
1 – Galesnjak Island (Lovers’ Island) – Croatia
This private and uninhabited small island contains only wild plants and trees and untouched beaches of the azure-blue Adriatic Sea, making it a great spot for couples in love. The island has become a major tourist destination after its perfect heart-shape was discovered on Google Earth in 2009.
2 – 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.
