Holden Beach is the Perfect Valentine’s Day Destination

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it and now is the perfect time to plan a romantic getaway to Holden Beach. With the hustle and bustle that can happen after the holidays, it’s the ideal time to reconnect with your partner for a little getaway. This year instead of planning a night of dinner and a movie, then make your Valentine’s Day getaway a romantic one that your loved one will never forget. We have come up with a few easy steps to plan your perfect Valentine’s Day getaway.

Find & Book the Perfect Vacation Home

The first step that you can’t leave out would have to be to find and book the perfect romantic vacation rental. Holden Beach offers visitors a variety of beautiful and well-appointed vacation rentals that you can choose from. Many of our home’s features oceanfront views, pools, hot tubs and sound front views that will help set the mood for romance. If you are a little worried that you won’t find the perfect location, don’t be. We have vacation rentals close to the area’s best attractions or if you’d like to be a little more secluded, we have those as well. Don’t forget that you are spending the weekend away from the busy life back home, so find a rental that will help the two of you escape for some relaxation.

Plan a Surprise

There is one way that you can inject some real passion into your getaway is to plan a surprise for you loved one. The surprise doesn’t have to be extravagant but make it simple and yet sweet such as having champagne and strawberries ready, or having flowers delivered to your vacation rental. Another sweet surprise you can do is to schedule a couple’s massage at a local spa. Think about what your partner likes and plan a surprise around that or a few things. No matter what you decide to plan, they will be surprised either way.

Go on a Couple’s Adventure

Holden Beach holds an endless amount of exciting and fun things to do in the area with your loved one. Whether you are staying with us for a weekend or a week, there is plenty of time to enjoy a little fun. When you are planning what romantic adventure, make sure to pick the things you’d like to do as a couple. Some of the things you can do is taking a walk on the beach, taking a deep-sea fishing trip or go taste some wine. There are many locations where you can take a day trip to say Myrtle Beach or to Wilmington, the possibilities are endless here.

Dine Together

Your Valentine’s Day getaway has to include a romantic dinner. Here at Holden Beach you will be able to find several local restaurants that you may want to give a try. If you are into seafood, then we suggest Castaways Raw Bar & Grill or Dock House Seafood & More. There are many options that are available in Holden Beach and many more options in the surrounding area. No matter what you are in the mood for to celebrate Valentine’s Day, there is something for you and your loved one here at the beach.


Sometimes on of the hardest things that many of us can’t do is disconnect from the outside life, but since you are on your romantic getaway set the technology away. Don’t worry about posting a picture or two of what you’re doing on Instagram or other social media accounts but enjoy your trip kid free and technology free. Holden Beach is quiet during the month of February so you will be able to enjoy the slower pace on the beach. While leaving your phone behind at your vacation rental may be difficult especially if you have children, just take a moment away from social media and enjoy the peace and quiet. We promise you will be glad you did.

Now that you have everything you need to plan your next romantic getaway to Holden Beach this Valentine’s Day, it’s time to book your trip.
