What better way to start your life as a married couple than with a once-in-a-lifetime trip? Check out 7 must-visit honeymoon destinations below, to help you celebrate in style…
Los Cabos, Mexico
Located at the Baja Peninsula, this once quiet fishing town is now the centre of Mexico’s tourism. It’s divided into two principal areas: Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. The latter area still maintains that quiet small town vibe, while the former has a livelier feel that includes a vibrant nightlife and shopping centers.
Why Choose Los Cabos
Los Cabos has unique views of the Pacific Ocean mixed with a rocky terrain and a stark desert look. There are also cliff-top restaurants that give you magnificent ocean views as you enjoy tasty sea food.
Santa Barbara, California
In case you want to spend the honeymoon closer to home, then Santa Barbara is an ideal destination. Santa Barbara isn’t what you’d expect from a Californian location. Unlike the vibrant Los Angeles area, Santa Barbara is pretty laid back with a ton of outdoor activities to choose from.
Why Choose Santa Barbara:
The locals are pretty active, with most of them preferring to spend their time at the beach having barbecues and surfing. Hence, you’ll have a great time bonding with the locals and perhaps learn a few surfing moves with your partner.
Mykonos is one of the most preferred destinations for newlyweds due to its ambiance and relative quietness when compared to Santorini. The buildings in Mykonos still maintain that classic whitewashed look.
Why Choose Mykonos:
If you want to experience one of the most unforgettable romantic experiences, then this is the place to be. The streets are small with a variety of shops and restaurants to choose from. Most places have that cozy feeling that make you feel at home.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The French Polynesia consists of a string of tiny islands with serene blue lagoons and calm waters. Bora Bora is known as a quiet gateway for public figures and celebrities alike.
Why Choose Bora Bora:
Bora Bora is where the idea of over-water bungalows started, so be sure that you’ll find some of the most amazing rooms. Imagine waking up to the most stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
Bali is also known as the ‘Isle of the Gods’ because it’s an area filled with tall magnificent temples that are usually filled with mist. The area also has scenic mountains and a quiet countryside.
Why Choose Bali:
Bali has all the elements in one place; it’s beautiful, quiet, relaxing, adventurous, and fun. You’ll never run out of things to do when in Bali. You can either choose to dine at a romantic restaurant, take a boat ride along the beautiful coastline or go horseback riding near the mountains.
This list cannot be complete without mentioning the romance capital of the world. Just the name Paris makes you feel as if you’re in a romantic movie. This city is filled with a lot of culture and architecture.
Why Choose Paris:
Paris streets are filled with amazing lights to make your romantic nights memorable. You can decide to go for dinner at the iconic Eiffel tower or take a boat tour of the amazing seine river. The list just goes on and on.
There’s a reason why Venice remains one of the top European destinations for tourists. Venice is an ancient city located north of Italy. It’s one of the few modern cities in the world where you can move around using boats.
Why Choose Venice:
Venice has a rich history and magnificent architecture. Take a water taxi and explore these historic sites together. Other things that you can do as newlyweds is enjoy a gelato, visit the Teatro La Fenice or enjoy the beautiful sunset at St. Marks Square.
