Well! When we think of romance on a beach, we often think of Goa, but if you have already been to Goa, I do have another super doper idea for you, the beaches of Kerala. Yes! Again, I am not telling about the usually crowded beaches Kovalam and Varkala. I am talking about the calm, serene sea sides in Kerala, where you could spend your precious time with your loved one, away from the crowd.

As you know, happiness does come with the waves. Enjoy!
