The Florida Coast Overflows in Romance for a Couples Retreat

No two travelers are alike. However, everyone can agree on the aesthetic and textural appeal of the Gulf Coast’s powdery beaches. We all remember the first time our feet landed on the soft, warm, and crystal-like sand. That feeling alone is memorable. Now, add to that feeling a spellbinding backdrop, complete with turquoise seawater, an azure sky, and the local flora’s compelling aromas. The Florida Emerald Coast is the perfect destination for couples retreats.  Potential midday aquatic adventures include surfing, paddle boarding, and wave running.

Fine Dining and House Cocktails

The culinary voyage across the Seven Seas starts and finishes at Portofino Island Resort. No couples retreat would be complete without fine dining, and our Pensolca Beach resort on the alluring Florida Coast won’t disappoint. Portofino Island Resort is home to Cobalt Bar, Portofino al Fresco, and Coastal, the area’s premier gourmet experience. Coastal’s fresh-caught seafood delicacies include balsamic-glazed salmon and seasonally-inspired grouper. The plate presentation is only outdone by the delectable flavor combinations masterly crafted by the culinary team. 


Couples can come to Al Fresco during their retreat for indulgence in various contemporary Florida Coast delights, such as the three-berry salad, blackened fish tacos, and grilled mahi-mahi sandwich. Cobalt Bar’s tropical cocktails taste like summer all year round. The classics, such as the mojito or bloody mary, provide a grin-inducing amount of piquancy, while the “Strawberry Kiss” and “Shipwrecked Summer” concoctions are equally tempting.

Playful  Activities

Portofino Island also boasts a bevy of ultra-relaxing and mildly-seductive pursuits for a romantic getaway. Our concierge team can arrange a private catamaran voyage, a dolphin cruise, or a sky-high parasailing expedition. Casual fitness activities are also readily available within steps of our luxurious Sky Homes, including golf, tennis, and fishing.


Please call us at 850-916-5000 to enhance your couples retreat to Pensacola Beach, Florida, with specialized luxuries, including champagne, rose petals, and personalized spa treatments, all near or in your resort room. You can also book directly online to avoid hidden, third-party fees. And, per usual, keep an eye on our ongoing money-saving vacation specials!

Pure Relaxation 

Couples can start their dreamy retreat mornings with a cup of coffee and breathtaking views of the Florida Emerald Coast from their private balconies. When you're ready to get up for the day, you and your sweetheart can feel the warm sun on your skin while swimming in the Portofino Island Resort outdoor pool. 


Experience pure serenity and romance with the Portofino Island Resort's on-site spa services at Spa Portofino. You and your partner will reach a new peak of bliss in the outdoor spa cabanas. Some relaxing services you can enjoy include a HydraFacial, Swedish Relaxation Massage, or a manicure. 


The gorgeous Florida Coast beach views during sunset are a big part of why the region is perfect for an enchanting couples retreat. Honeymooners, long-lasting partners, and new duos can watch as the sun subtly dips below the Gulf's surface, creating a magical meld of colors, including indigo, royal orange, and Carolina blue. Take in the enchanting scenery with a picnic on the beach.

Have an enchanting Valentine’s Day with the couples retreat of your dreams at Portofino Island Resort!
