What is the most romantic spot on Earth, you ask? A top contender can be found Down Under in the Great Barrier Reef. The Heart Reef is perfectly shaped to match the name; private yacht charter travelers will be instantly charmed by this tiny reef outcrop and its romantic appearance. Not to mention the blindingly white sand, lush greenery, and deep blue ocean (where snorkelers and scuba divers can see some of the world’s most spectacular sea life). Bring your special someone here to see the Heart Reef from the air on a private helicopter ride!
