Fox Island: The Most Romantic Island in America

When most couples think of romantic getaways, they think of tropical paradises and long walks on a sandy beach as the sun goes down. But what if you were told that there is a place even more charming than a white sandy beach with palm trees swaying in the breeze? A place surrounded by glaciers and mountains with a smooth, pebbly shore and clear waters. The name of this place? Fox Island.

Fox Island, located in Resurrection Bay, is a 3.5-mile piece of land flanked by Kenai Fjords National Park located in the south-eastern part of Alaska. There are 8 cabins located right on the rocky beach, and getting to them is an adventure within itself. Take a small wildlife-viewing boat tour from Seward, Alaska through glacial waters, past ancient Alaskan islands and dock on the private island.

Your storybook cabin awaits you on the shore. Sit in the provided rocking chairs on the porch to view the cliffside shore or the quiet lagoon. Keep warm inside with flannel blankets on the leather couches or high beds. Enjoy some time being unplugged from the rest of the world by taking advantage of the fact that there is no WiFi in the cabins. If you start to feel the itch to be back with the 21st century, there are chargers provided in the communal lodge. The lodge is a warm main house complete with fireplaces, dining areas, and views of the sea

In the mornings, enjoy the views in a cozy atmosphere while sipping on a freshly made and delivered cup of French press coffee. The beauty of Alaska is all around you, and you never have to fear missing a sunrise or sunset, as they are both incredibly lengthy in the state.

There are plenty of things to do during your stay at Fox Island. Couples can build teamwork via a sea kayaking adventure while exploring the bay and searching for the variety of wildlife in the area. Indulge in childhood wonder by exploring tide pools and discovery the galaxies of starfish that call the island home. Couples could also choose to go pedal boating in the lagoon or go hiking on the unmaintained trails through the craggy peaks. While doing all of this, couples are encouraged to just take a moment to breathe and enjoy the landscape that has been left untouched by humans.

After a day of exploring and getting to know one another all over again, couples can enjoy delicious gourmet meals prepared by the executive chef and their team. Appetizers, entrees, desserts and more await couples who can cuddle up by the fireplace to enjoy their meals.

After supper, there is no better way to end the day than by taking a walk under the stars, hand in hand with your special someone. The night is yours to do with as you please, just make sure to be ready for the next day. Fox Island romance experts know that getaways are important, and with so much to see, they ensure that couples will need at least a two-night stay to take it all in.

Once the honeymoon is over, it is time to say goodbye to Fox Island, or maybe just see you again. Set sail for the mainland through the Northwestern Fjord Tour and visit tidewater glaciers while looking for orcas, otters, sea lions, and many more animals that call the area home. Stay warm in each others’ arms while sipping hot chocolate and dreaming of your next adventure together.

If you learn anything from your stay at Fox Island, it will be that the cliche of a tropical getaway now has a rival that lives in the Alaskan wilderness.
