The World’s Most Romantic Islands 2015

Days of wine, orchid petals, and blissful beaches: T+L readers voted on their dreamiest island escapes.

No. 17 Nantucket, Massachusetts (tie)

4 of 21

With its wild grasses and windswept dunes, this island off the coast of Cape Cod is one of the most naturally beautiful in the country. But Nantucket’s fans don’t pretend that this island is just about sand and surf: it’s also about dinner. Cap off your beach day with local swordfish or a chorizo-accented clambake at Straight Wharf, or the honey-lacquered duck breast with island beets and spice-brined grapes at Ventuno. One of the most romantic places to stay (or get married) is the shingle-sided White Elephant, where the amenities include afternoon port and cheese, and where the bed linens are so popular that you can buy a set to take home, complete with a goose-down duvet.
