5 Florida Resorts That Are Pure Paradise for Couples
Club Med Sandpiper Bay, Port St. Lucie
This all-inclusive resort located on the east coast of Florida along a stretch of beach on the St. Lucie River has frequently been ranked as the top all-inclusive in the United States. Its setting on the sandy banks of the river is ideal for activities such as sailing, paddleboarding and kayaking, but if you want to enjoy time at the ocean, it’s just a 20-minute drive away.
If you’re looking to enjoy the great outdoors, you can also visit the nearby St. Lucie Inlet State Reserve. Only accessible by boat, you’ll be able to explore one of the best state parks in Florida and make the most of your day by strolling along boardwalks and enjoying a picnic lunch on the sand.
Sandpiper Bay has three swimming pools and two restaurants and bars. All meals, as well as most drinks (including beer and mixed drinks), are included.
Enjoy taking cooking lessons or dance classes together, working up an appetite to dine on gourmet cuisine with a wide range of options. Make sure you also take advantage of the spa, with its double shower Turkish bath and duo treatment rooms for couples.
