A Valentine’s Day Getaway on the Crystal Coast

Looking to add a bit more romance to your relationship this year? How about a Valentine’s Day getaway on the Crystal Coast? The Crystal Coast is the perfect place to spend this heart-filled holiday with the one you love! We’re sharing some ideas to make your romantic beach getaway one to remember.

Let’s face it, gifts are great but making memories with a shared experience is even better! With unique south-facing beaches and breathtaking sunsets, the Crystal Coast stretches over 85 miles of sand and sun along the coast of North Carolina, making it the perfect setting for making memories that last a lifetime. Plan a long weekend romantic getaway starting on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and enjoy an entire week with your sweetheart. 

What to do on Your Valentine’s Day Getaway on the Crystal Coast

Take that romantic walk on the beach to the next level with a surprise picnic. Local companies like Carolina Picnic Co. will set up a luxury picnic with just about anything your heart desires. Sip champagne, nibble on chocolate, and, most importantly, get cozy with your cutie. You can put a twist on this idea and have a picnic in your private vacation rental vs. the beach, too. Let your imagination run wild.

Adventures and Activities During Your Getaway

Experience a thrilling adventure together with a fun day on the water with Island Water Sports. Rent jet skis and ride the waves, or enjoy the excitement of a Banana Boat ride! They even have kayaks and stand-up paddle boards for even more fun. Doesn’t that sound like the makings of a fun-filled Valentine’s Day getaway on the Crystal Coast?

Another idea for the brave and bold might be to try hang gliding together. That’s definitely an exhilarating experience you won’t soon forget.

Biking along the Crystal Coast is another nice option for two. You can peddle your way through paradise or try an eclectic bike and enjoy the ride. Either way, you’ll be doing it together and having fun.

A few other options to consider – Bowling, racing, or putt-putt gold at MacDaddys, feeding the sharks at the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores during their behind-the-scenes tour, or take an EcoTour with Crystal Coast Ecotours.
