Flare Magazine 2012 Romantic Escapes

Flare Magazine identifies five “sexy getaways to light your fire.  They include Marrakech, Barcelona, Big Sur, Dolphin Island (Fiji) and the Sunshine Coast  (mostly referring to Secret Cove).  Here’s what they say:

We know what your thinking – Sunshine what?  And yet, from safari-chic tent accomodation to casual-cool oyster bars, this West Coast gem – a 40 minute ferry ride from the mainland- offers plenty of sexytime inspiration.

SLEEP  If Edward and Bella’s treetop hopping set your heart aflutter – – you’ll love ROCKWATER SECRET COVE RESORT‘S glamping style tenthouse.  Accessed via a winding boardwalk, the suites offer a 360 view of the forest and ocean, so you can enjoy the vista from your in-room hydroptherapy tub or on you own private veranda….

EAT Make a reservation at UPPER DECK CAFE (open May – October) where you can take in the sunset uninterrupted – no candlelight required.  Set in SECRET COVE MARINA, the floating restaurant serves up fresh local ingredients in succulent dishes such as citrusy seaweed encrusted Halibut with root vegetable risotto.

PLAY Sample the galleries and shps around Gibson’s Landing, or stock up on home-baked goods at the Sunday market.  Sportive couples can also work up a sweat with a hike though the forested trails of Smuggler’s Cove Provincial Park, the spot of Prohibition lore – adventurous paddlers like to paddle off from this spot to explore the surrounding Islands…

Wherever you go on the coast, one this is ure: it’s easy to get carried away. – Catalina Margulis.
