With winter almost behind us, there is a freshness in the air, days are filled with comfortable sunshine and evenings and nights are breezy. It's the February effect, in case you are wondering. February is also the month of romance. So for all who are planning a getaway with a special someone this Valentine month, here are six Indian destinations perfect for a romantic getaway.

Havelock Island sets the perfect mood for a romantic getawayWhite sand beaches, blue waters, stunning sunsets, and lots of lazing around in hammocks, sipping on coconut water. Sounds like a plan? The many beautiful and pristine beaches of Andaman and Nicobar Islands mean serious R&R from all the accumulated stress of the past year. If at all you get tired of too much relaxation then go snorkelling or scuba diving. These waters are one of the best spots in the world for such sports.

February is the best time to be in Rann of Kutch. Days are not too hot and nights are lush.  The magnificent, undisrupted and unending view of the white plains have a touch of the ethereal. We suggest you book into a tent in a camp, and check out the vast canopy of stars (and the Milky Way). And pretend like you are the only people in that vast stretch of white.
