A Honeymoon is perhaps the best vacation most of us will ever have in our lives, and so it makes sense that when picking out the location couples generally choose a place that they have never been and always have wanted to go to.
For many people, that tends to be an island paradise, such as Hawaii or Fiji. For others it is a cultural mecca, such as Italy or France. For me, it was a cruise through the Caribbean that my spouse and I went on, and it was an amazing time that neither of us will ever forget.
Below is a list and description of some of the most popular honeymoon destinations across the globe just to give you some ideas for when you travel on your honeymoon or any romantic vacation for that matter.
Hawaii – You would be hard pressed to find anyone that didn’t agree that Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places on the Earth and so it is clear to see why Hawaii is the #1 honeymoon vacation location in the world. You can experience the more secluded islands of Maui and Kauai, or stay on Oahu or the big island if you are looking for a more adventurous trip.
Caribbean – With so many beautiful islands in the Caribbean, it can be rather hard to decide on which island to stay at. There are many islands that have all-inclusive resorts that are amazing to stay at, or you could go the route that I went by taking a cruise ship and exploring multiple islands. If I had to choose one island to stay at though, I would choose St. Maarten as it has amazing beaches, luxurious hotels, great nightlife and a wide-range of nature activities to experience as well.
Fiji – Another amazing destination where there are the private beach bungalows that are raised on stilts out over the ocean where you and your lover can stay in. Rest and relaxation are what this island nation offer and for anyone that can afford it, it is a must stay!
Mexico – Mexico has some of the best beach resort cities in the world. From Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco and many more, deciding just where to stay here may be the most difficult part of the honeymoon!
Italy – From the rich culture and history of Rome and Venice to the hills of Tuscany, there is not many other places in the world as romantic as Italy. There is so much to see, do and experience in this country that most people can’t find the time to fit everything in on just one trip.
France – Paris is considered by many to be the most romantic city in the world, and that is why it is such a popular honeymoon destination. If you are looking for a more secluded and romantic environment, then cities such as Corsica in the south of France are another excellent honeymoon destination.
Thailand – While many people associate Thailand as the hustle and bustle of the crowds in Bangkok, there is actually much more to experience here. There are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world at Koh Samui and Phuket, and the entire country is filled with so much history and culture, that it is easy to see why so many choose to honeymoon there.
Everyone has a different idea of how they want to spend their honeymoons. Luckily, there are so many affordable choices around the world for couples to choose from. Regardless of where you decide to go, I hope you have the time of your life as it truly is a wonderful way to spend time with your newly wedded partner.
