How About Croatia for Your Honeymoon?

This must be the 9th natural wonder of the world ... at least for lovers ... So if you are looking for a "different" location for your honeymoon, here you have it.

The 130,000 square yard islet of Galesnjak and island in the Adriatic, came to prominence after its unusual shape was highlighted on Google Earth. It's shaped like a heart.

Even the owner of the uninhabited island - now known as Lovers' Island - didn't realise how perfectly heart-shaped the island off the Croatian coast was until he was swamped with requests from couples to stay there.

It seems many lovers from around the world consider it to be the ideal spot for a romantic Valentine's Day break.

Vlado Juresko said: "It has been incredible. We think it is the most perfect heart-shaped island in the world. Nobody lives there so if lovers really do want to spend time alone it's the perfect desert island.

"We always thought it looked a bit like a heart but since it's been on Google Earth everyone else has seen it too and the whole world seems to want to stay here."

The island is located in Zadarski Kanal between Zadar and the Island of Pasman.
