The Perfect Couples’ Itinerary for a Weekend Getaway

September 27, 2021

Picture this: the island is quiet, the weather is cool, and the Tiki Grill is busy crafting adult libations. What better time for a romantic Florida couples’ getaway than right now? As the recipient of the 2020 Couples’ Choice Award presented by WeddingWire, we welcome couples looking to unplug from distractions and reconnect with their partner in paradise.

Here’s our recommendation for the ultimate couples’ getaway:

  • Early AM – Start the day with an early-morning kayak trip through the Hawks Cay Marina and beyond to discover the area's unique ecosystems. You may even see some friendly aquatic creatures along the way. Kayak rentals are available from Solé Watersports. 

  • Mid-AM – After paddling, you can unwind into relaxation with a couple’s spa treatment at the award-winning Calm Waters Spa. Take advantage of the spa’s soothing lounge area and sip on refreshing fruit-infused water as you prepare for the ultimate island bliss.

  • Noon – It’s lunch time! Enjoy a late afternoon meal with happy hour specials at Angler and Ale. Grab a seat on the patio, take in the views and dig in to discounted bites and tropical cocktails during Captain’s Hour.

  • Afternoon – Now, hop on your complimentary bike rental and head over to the marina for romantic sunset cruise to see the stunning shades of an authentic Keys sunset.

  • Evening – Make your way over to Sixty-One Prime to sit down to a romantic dinner and rum tasting at the resort’s famed steakhouse. 

  • Night – After a long day of adventuring together, kick your feet up and feel the warmth of the Keys with a cigar at the Oasis Cay fire pit.

With so many memories waiting to be made, what better way to frame the moment than with a photoshoot to memorialize the fun. Hawks Cay’s onsite photography team, Folland Photography, can help with that.
