New Zealand’s Most Romantic Destinations

Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

Many people who travel to New Zealand do so for the amount of adrenaline fuelled activities readily available, however most do not realise that wherever you are in this amazing country, romance is not far away. With so many beautiful and picturesque sights for you to explore, a trip spent exploring New Zealand’s most romantic destinations is sure to leave a lasting impression on both you and your partner, so be sure to compare flights online for the best deals, and enjoy a romantic vacation of a lifetime!

Pakiri Beach

Pakiri Beach is only a 90 minute drive away from Auckland, but is a true hidden gem filled with some of the most pristine scenery you will find anywhere in the country. The beach is largely unknown by many of the tourists who visit New Zealand so you are likely to be the only people there, meaning you can enjoy some quality time together.

With plenty of activities available to keep you busy throughout the day, Pakiri is a must-visit for those travelling as a couple. You can take a romantic horse ride along the shoreline during sun set or go kayaking in the estuary, where you are guaranteed to see some stunning tropical fish swimming about the reefs. Should the weather not be in your favour, you can also explore some of the nearby wineries while you work your way back to the city.


Full of all the essential ingredients to make anyone fall in love, Taupo really has everything for the tourist couple, including a beautiful crystal lake surrounded by ice capped mountains and a misty air that engulfs the spectacular landscape. The town is a brilliant place for you to unwind and relax with your loved one, and should you feel like heading out to party, there are plenty of options not far away. You can also take a day trip to the Haku Falls close by, while there are hot springs offering that essential spa treatment!


The ‘windy city’ as it is known to New Zealanders, Wellington has everything for those looking for romance. From great attractions to plenty of bars and cafes for you to explore, you will never be bored roaming the cultured streets here.  You can also find some modern serviced apartments in the city, that will not only add to your romantic vacation, but easily allow you to explore the local attractions due to their city-centre proximity.

Why not take a romantic stroll through the botanical garden before you head over to the entertainment district, to enjoy a live music performance or a play at one of the many theatres Wellington has to offer?


The town of Wanaka Lake is the ideal location for those who are seeking some alone time in a beautiful and tranquil location.  The town has plenty for you to do, although most people who visit here enjoy spending their time relaxing by the lake, or hiring a boat and exploring some of the hidden gems that are not accessible by foot. There are also many outstanding snow resorts nearby, so if you come in the colder months, maybe skiing with your loved one might be an excellent way to spend one of your days here?
