This is not just any holiday. It’s your honeymoon! It’s meant to be a once in-a-lifetime experience that you will alway remember. And a great opportunity for you and your newly loved-up spouse to steal time away from the madness of the world (and all the wedding planning that has been consuming your time). Not only can your honeymoon be relaxing, but also a great way to have fun and experience new cultures with the love of your life.
But WHERE to go on your honeymoon can produce a lively pre-nuptial discussion - there are SO many options!
I’m not getting married or going on a honeymoon anytime soon... but a girl can dream! So below is a list of the places I’m dreaming of.
I hope they give you and your fiance inspiration and prompt lively discussion ..... Did someone say “Tropical Island”....
When I think honeymoon, I think tropical island, and Bora Bora is truly the stuff honeymoon fantasies are made of! Pure white sandy beaches for miles, crystal clear waters and rustic huts floating over the ocean - what more could a girl ask for! In between romantic helicopter rides, snorkelling the coral reefs and sampling the cocktails, it would be difficult not to relax with your new "hubby" / "wife".
With it’s undeniable reputation as the most romantic city in the world, it only seems fair to shortlist Paris as your perfect honeymoon destination. A sunset cruise to the “Temple of Love” (yes it’s really called that) might interest you, or perhaps a tango along the seine is more your scene. Either way, between the historic architecture, world-renowned art, glorious food and delectable wine, it would be difficult not to get swept away by the romance that can only be found in the city of lights (or la Ville des Lumières as they say in French).
Few places are as romantic as the greek islands and Santorini might just be the most stunning of them all. This small volcanic island is known for its seriously stunning sunsets and pristine whitewashed villas. Even couples who get antsy after an hour of beach time will find lots to explore. Take a scooter to the famous red sand beaches, check out ancient ruins, visit wineries, go hiking and window shop in the many boutiques.
The island's clear waters, tropical sunsets and lush greenery make Hawaii a no-brainer for a romantic getaway. Your honeymoon will be full of snorkeling trips and dreamy horseback rides along the beach. Watch the sunrise while wrapped in a blanket at the top of Haleakala Crater, or gaze at the sunset as you cruise along the Kihei coastline. Instant romance.
Canadian Rocky mountains
If you are an outdoorsy couple then this might just be the perfect destination for your ultimate romantic honeymoon. With pristine wilderness at your doorstep beckoning for you to explore, you may be tempted enough to leave your rustic log cabin. Finish each day next to a cozy crackling fireplace, a glass of red from a nearby winery - all while snuggled up to your sweetheart.
Wherever you choose, I hope your honeymoon is everything that you dreamed of and more. Have fun planning!
