International travel has become such a staple of The Bachelor series — the best finale destinations on The Bachelorette include places like Curacao and Antigua — that it’s hard to believe it took the show a few seasons to break out the passports. Every season, early episodes may feature dates in locations like San Francisco and Utah, but finale episodes of The Bachelor and Bachelorette mine love from exotic destinations near (Hawaii) and far (New Zealand). The one thing The Bachelor's best finale destinations have in common? They’re all “the perfect place to fall in love,” of course.

Relive the greatest final locations in Bachelorette and Bachelor history with this list of all of the best places contestants took a chance on love.

Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are one of the most successful couples in Bachelorette history. They're still married, and they have an adorable family. It must be the magic of Fiji.

Roberto Martinez proposed to Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky against the picturesque backdrop of Bora Bora. The relationship didn't last, but the pictures still hold up.

Hawaii might be a little on the nose to host Bachelorette finale's proposal, but that doesn't make it any less breathtaking. Jillian Harris's pink dress paired perfectly with the native Hawaiian flowers, and Ed Swiderski's tie was a great complement. Their engagement didn't last, but they looked like a good fit in the finale.

Jason Mesnick may have proposed to the wrong woman (he famously dumped his final choice, Melissa Rycroft, for his runner-up Molly Malaney), but he did it in the right place: gorgeous New Zealand.
