Isn't it getting boring looking at all those blue sky and brown sand for the past few days. Well, at least I am. This is a black and white post-processed photo of an old couple walking along the Apollo beach. it features a small cave hole breaking wave. Romantic walk or sunbathing is common at this beach. Who knows the couple might be just some friends trying to get to the carpark on the right!?!

1. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, Tahitian Islands
It's not the soft white sand, the spectacular sunsets or the languid tropical breezes that put Matira Beach, located on Bora Bora's southern tip, at the top of our list of the world's most romantic beaches. It's the calm, warm, crystal-clear water -- the perfect playground for dolphins, ray, vibrant tropical fish and you! The island of Bora Bora is completely encircled by reefs and smaller islands, creating a shallow, protected lagoon that offers the best swimming and snorkeling around. For a day -- or a year -- of pure, lazy pleasure on one of the world's most romantic beaches with your new spouse, Matira Beach is an unbeatable choice. Everyone who visits this magical place agrees that it's well worth the long trip to Bora Bora see this number one "most romantic beach".

2. Pink Beach, Harbour Island, Bahamas
No list of "Most Romantic Beaches" could possibly be complete without including the Bahamas most famous romantic beach, Pink Beach. Wide and lined with towering palms, this romantic beach is made up of fine-grained sand in a glorious shell-pink. The unique color of Pink Beach would be stunning even without the warm and welcoming turquoise-blue ocean lapping at its edge, but the combination of pink sand, azure-blue sky, turquoise water, and green palm trees is so delightful, particularly at sunset, that you almost won't believe your eyes. In fact, Pink Beach is consistently voted one of the most romantic beaches in the entire Caribbean! Spend a day at this romantic beach and we bet you'll decide to come back for your first anniversary -- and maybe your second and third.

3. Promenade des Anglais, Nice, France
Picture a wide promenade lined with stylish boutiques, elegant hotels, and sidewalk cafes just steps away from the clear, azure waters of the Mediterranean. Jaunty blue and white umbrellas dot what must be the world's most chic beach -- the Promenade des Anglais on the glamorous French Riviera.

The Promenade des Anglais offers beautiful sand and swimming to rival other top beaches, but with an aura of pampered sophistication that can only be found in France, as formal waiters can bring cocktails, snacks, or even champagne right to your beach chair! If you're looking for the pure delight of the most romantic beach in France, turn your attention to Nice and the Promenade des Anglais.

4. Green Sand Beach, Hawaii, USA
White-sand beaches aren't common. Pink-sand beaches are downright unusual. But only on the geological wonderland that is the Big Island of Hawaii can you find the rarest of them all -- a romantic beach made of deep green crystals. The green sand is formed almost entirely of olivine, a crystal found in the nearby volcano. The beach itself is very tiny but beautiful, and offers wading more than swimming. And considering you have to hike three miles to get there, the Green Sand beach is one romantic beach experience that you have to earn! But don't be discouraged - the memory of standing with your new spouse, watching the blue waters of the Pacific crash against glowing green sand, will fill your dreams for a lifetime. Many couples claim an almost "spiritual awakening" here and cite it as the reason they vote this particular beach to be one of the most romantic beaches in Hawaii!

5. South Beach, Florida, USA
If your idea of a romantic beach includes plenty of energy, activity, and nightlife, then South Beach in Miami, Florida, is for you. Sherbert-colored Art Deco buildings vie with the warm turquoise water of the Caribbean for your attention. What makes this one of the most romantic beaches in the US is the eclectic blend of cuban and european cultures mixed with elegance and sophistication. Whether you spend the day walking for miles along this romantic beach hand in hand, picking up souvenirs in any of numerous designer stores and boutiques, or enjoying a meal in cheerful sidewalk cafes, South Beach is sure to make you realize that being part of a couple makes every experience double the fun.
