You will be able to share a delicious moment for two while contemplating the sunset in each other’s arms, then the stars lying on the sand!<>
We offer some tips and ideas to make this moment magical, memorable and unique!<>

Choose the place for your picnic dinner!<>

First, choose a beach where you are sure that few people will be there in the early evening. Also check before anything else that your beach is well located to admire the sunset!<>
Once on the beach, choose a place sheltered from the wind and rather calm in terms of “tourist traffic”.<>

Choose the right time to picnic!<>

The choice of the moment to organize a romantic meal on the beach is very important.<>
Indeed, you will have to take note of the weather: no rain forecast for the evening, not too windy, … You will also have to take a look at the tide times to prevent a wave from spoiling your sweet moment for two.<>
And finally: dinner time. Try to start your romantic dinner early (7:00 p.m.) so you can fully enjoy your evening and the sunset for dessert.<>
