You aren't everyone else, you are YOU, and you need a honeymoon that FITS who you are as a newly married couple! One of the most challenging aspects of planning an unforgettable honeymoon is picking a destination that excites you and your S.O., especially if you have different interests. But by working with an experienced advisor, you can tailor any trip to fit your niche preferences.
Our guide to picking a honeymoon destination features 5 of the most incredible destinations across the world - including the best of some classics.
A honeymoon to remember ought to be personal, not something planned as an afterthought to your wedding. And if there is one vacation people are going to ask you about, it's this one.
Below are some of the most exciting honeymoon destinations of 2023 and beyond.
Say aloha to a Hawaiian honeymoon. The beaches, the water, the Aloha Spirit—it's hard to go wrong with a honeymoon in Hawaii. Serene, restful, exciting, and exotic, Hawaii consistently ranks among the most desired honeymoon destinations on the planet. The state's six major islands offer heavenly Hawaiian experiences, but each island beats to the tune of its own drum.
With endless sun, powder-soft sands, ancient cultural experiences, and exhilarating natural adventures, Hawaii is truly a tropical paradise in the Pacific Ocean.
Romance is everywhere you turn. For newlyweds in search of beautiful beach sunsets, adventure on or under the water, and relaxing treatments at award-winning spas, this is the place to be.
WHEN TO GO
The wettest months are from November to March, but winter rains do not generally disrupt vacation plans, since the weather is very localized. This means that if it is raining where you are, there is almost always a sunny spot to be found around the coast.
Beaches around the world are compared to the Caribbean, but nowhere, really, is quite like the Caribbean. Limpid, pale-blue sea through which you can see your toes, wiggling in the shell-pink sand, angelfish flashing around your ankles. In the evening the sun falls fast and lights the sky up electric pink, orange, red.
Of course, all this is no secret; and nothing bursts the just-married bubble like a sunset buffet with a dozen other newlyweds.
So to escape the crowds, seek out the quieter corners of the Caribbean Islands– the rustic, rum-shack Caribbean that's chilled out and still rough around the edges. Or head for one of its exclusive private islands, where the beaches are straight out of Treasure Island and you can stroll the empty shoreline.
WHEN TO GO
For winter sun, visit from December to April.
Just an extra little nudge away from the United States, Mexico is a long-loved honeymoon destination in its entirety. However, Los Cabos, located on the very tip of the Baja California Peninsula, is a particularly entrancing stop for recently married couples.
Between December and March, whale watching is firmly on the agenda, though the rich tapestry of marine life here is on hand all year-round (think: sea lions, turtles and myriad tropical fish). The area comprises two old towns, San Lucas and San José del Cabo, linked by a 32km corridor of beach-front properties and championship golf courses. Secluded? No. Romantic? Yes
WHEN TO GO
The best time to visit Los Cabos is from May to June, and after October once the bigger rain showers have passed.
Ah, Italy! The home of romance! Where to start? Amalfi, where the light makes your heart sing, and the vertiginous mountain road leads from one beauty spot to another? Tuscany, where the sunshine bathes the hills and your lover in its golden haze? Puglia, for quieter beaches and great food; the Italian Lakes, which feel like another era altogether, and that most eternal of romantic destinations, Venice (though never in August)…
Then there are the Italian islands: Sardinia, with its unbelievably turquoise waters and white-sand beaches of the Costa Smeralda; Capri and lesser-known Ischia, which has sandy beaches and hot springs. And don't forget Sicily. The beaches are great and the Baroque cities simply enchanting and Italy has some of the world's most romantic hotels.
WHEN TO GO
Summers are beautiful but more crowded – visit Tuscany in autumn, when the landscape turns golden, or plan a spring trip to Venice.
A honeymoon in Jamaica is certainly not going to be a quiet one. But in place of a sleepy atmosphere is a vibrant tapestry that envelops you in a landscape that is just as colourful and rich as its culture. Tree-cloaked mountains, vast rainforests, meandering rivers and fish-fringed reefs are all open to exploration during your time here.
It’s worth touring around during your trip as each area offers its take on island life: lively Montego Bay (the country’s capital city) is one of the most popular resort towns, while Ocho Rios is the island's major port, and Negril is famous for its long, languishing beach, trimmed by coconut palms.
WHEN TO GO
The best time to visit Jamaica is from November to early December — hurricane season has ended, and the hotels and restaurants are all open, but you'll be able to enjoy the island without the high volume of visitors that arrive in mid-December.
