Kissing on the beach at sunset
24 Jun

24th June is National Kissing Day – Kissing Your Way Around the World

Where You Should (and Shouldn’t) Indulge in a Little PDA This Summer

Nothing says love like a sunshine getaway – and on June 24th, you’ll find couples kissing all over the world.

There’s no better place to rekindle your romance than on holiday – and this June, there’s an even better reason to do so. On the 24th of June, it’s National Kissing Day – so if you want to show that special someone how much you care, why not celebrate it in style? We’ve put together a list of the most romantic locations in the world so that you can share a truly memorable kiss with the one that you love.


It’s known as the City of Love, so it’s only fair that Paris is the first place on our list.  It’s the destination of choice for lovers everywhere – whether they’ve been together for months or years. The Eiffel Tower provides fantastic views of the French capital, and is a pretty popular spot for proposals. Montmartre is a beautiful part of the city too, and you’ll find plenty of romantic little cafés and hotels.


Barcelona is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world thanks to its beaches and unique architecture. It’s full of tapas bars and lively nightspots where you can share a kiss or two. It’s also home to plenty of parks and local beauty spots too. Head to Montjuic Castle for incredible views over the city and the coastline – and sunset is definitely the most romantic time of day to take them in.

Cinque Terre

Yes, Italy is home to Rome and Venice – but we’ve got somewhere else on our minds for a romantic getaway. Cinque Terre is an area populated by tiny fishing villages with gorgeous brightly coloured buildings and stunning sea views. You could enjoy a romantic dinner looking out over the Mediterranean Sea, or an afternoon stroll through sun-lit cobbled streets.

The Seychelles

The Seychelles are a popular honeymoon destination – and that’s down to the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the islands. The second largest of these islands, Praslin, is home to Anse Lazio, which with its white sands and turquoise waters is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Meanwhile on the island of La Dugie, you’ll find the tiny town of La Passe. Tranquil by day, the beach comes alive with music and revellers of a night.

When To Play It Cool

While the world is full of many wonderful locations, it’s not appropriate to indulge in public displays of affection in all of them. China has very strict laws regarding what couples can and can’t do in public – so don’t be tempted to hold hands or have a kiss. The same goes for India, Indonesia, Japan and countries in the Middle East. To ensure you don’t run into any trouble, do your best to understand and respect the local customs. After all, you can always kiss and cuddle in private.

A Summer Of Love Awaits

Wherever you head to for your romantic getaway, don’t forget your worldwide travel insurance. You’ll be fully covered in the case of illness, loss of property or cancellation. So you can put all your worries firmly out of your mind and focus on having a great trip with your partner. After all, every summer holiday is made better with a little bit of romance.
