Here are some tips to help you plan your romantic beach vacation:


Book the perfect accommodation

North Topsail is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Naturally more quite, less traffic, and less commercialized, the island is the perfect place to eliminate distractions and focus on your love. 

Look for a place that offers privacy and comfort! We recommend our Salty Days beachfront townhome. It’s a quiet escape that serves as a perfect getaway for a couple looking to soak up the sun. 

A few perks at Salty Days:

  • 2-3 minute walk to the Seaview Fishing Pier 

Pack accordingly

Don't forget to pack for your romantic beach vacation. Bring plenty of sunscreen, beach towels, and swimsuits. Pack romantic outfits for your evenings out, as well as comfortable clothes for exploring during the day. And don't forget to bring some champagne or your favorite wine to enjoy on the beach at sunset!


Relax and enjoy

Once you've arrived at your beach home rental, it's time to relax and enjoy your intimate beach vacation. Leave your worries behind and focus on spending quality time with your favorite person. Whether you're lounging on the beach or exploring the local area, make sure to savor every moment of your romantic getaway.


Plan romantic activities

Take matters into your own hands and make plans that will naturally draw you closer. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

  1. Watch the sunset together: One of the most romantic things you can do on a beach vacation is watch the sunset together. Find a quiet spot on the beach, bring a blanket and a bottle of wine, and watch as the sun sets over the ocean.
  2. Take a romantic walk on the beach: Walking hand in hand on the beach can be incredibly romantic. Take a leisurely stroll on the beach, listen to the sound of the waves, and enjoy the peace of each other's company.
  3. Have a candlelit dinner on the balcony: This can be an incredibly romantic experience, with the sound of the waves and the stars above.
  4. Go for a couples massage: This can be a great way to spend some quality time together and de-stress from everyday life.
  5. Write love notes in the sand: While spending time by the ocean, write love notes in the sand for your partner. This can be a fun and romantic way to express your love and affection. After you are finished reading the notes, leave them for all to see or wipe them away for extra privacy.  

With these tips, you're sure to plan the perfect romantic beach vacation. So pack your bags, grab your love, and head to the beach for a truly unforgettable experience.
