Where to go on honeymoon?
Our top honeymoon destinations across the world
The most popular honeymoon destinations are always changing and vary according to the social, cultural and economic backgrounds of couples.
But here are our favourites from last year.
The many islands of Hawaii have their own attractions to offer aside from its beautiful beaches. The island of Kaua’i is gaining popularity as the top spot because of its striking coastline, crystal clear waterfalls and very scenic valleys. Beach lovers are now more into pristine beaches but the Big Island’s black sand beaches is still tops. Probably the number one destination in the world if the budget stretches
Located in the east Caribbean this island is a wonderful nature park with its lush tropical rain forests and clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Trekking and bird watching are options so are scuba diving, snorkelling and sailing.
Off the coast of Florida, USA is this group of 700 islands that offer the best of the Atlantic Ocean. The sun, sea and sand of the Bahamas offer a great backdrop for honeymooners. At night you can watch the stars or enjoy the famed night life of the island.
The bright lights of Broadway, the quiet of an early morning in Greenwich Village or a picnic in Central Park can all be savoured in one day. The best place if you only have a few days together after the wedding.
South of France
Golden beaches, sun, beautiful countryside and the best of food and wine make this one that’s closer to home but every bit as romantic as further afield.
The Dominican Republic offers both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Saona Island is a favorite honeymoon destination because of its crystal clear lagoon, nature parks and wildlife habitat. The island is home to numerous resorts that offer relaxing spas treatments for honeymooners.
At the top end when it comes to budget but if it’s good enough for Prince William and Kate then it’s probably okay for the rest of us.
Venice is still in the top ten of popular honeymoon destinations as nothing can beat a romantic ride in a gondola as it weaves in and out of the canals. Honeymooners breathe-in the essence of Venice – its architecture and arts, the people and its general ambiance
Still the City of Lights as it is the City of Love, Paris has become iconic in terms of honeymoon destinations. A trip to the Eiffel Tower for a romantic evening is a must. A stroll in the left bank of the Seine is great as well as a shopping trip over to the right bank.
The best of beaches, countryside and the chance to go on safari make this country one of the most popular for honeymoon visit in recent years. Cuddle up together as the lion roars in the distance.
