There is no better way of celebrating your “just married” status than with a great honeymoon. Finding the ultimate and romantic getaway for you and your spouse is not going to be hard; there are hundreds of destinations that newlywed couples used to go to time and time again. 

So, if you’ve still haven’t made up your mind yet, here are some recommendations.

1. St. Lucia

If you want to spend quality time on the white sand of the Caribbean beaches, you wouldn’t find a better destination than St. Lucia. The beautiful scenery, the lush mountains, and luxurious resorts will be more than enough to provide you and your significant other with the most magical honeymoon you could ever ask for. If you decide to spend your honeymoon in St. Lucia, make sure that you visit the Soufrière area to get a great portion of the natural scenes this city has to offer. If you don’t mind breaking a sweat with the love of your life, you can go hiking between the Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, Sulphur Springs, or the Pitons.

2. Bora Bora

Bora Bora is another gorgeous destination with striking beaches, lagoons, and, to top it all, the jaw-dropping dormant volcano. You can enjoy sailing, surfing, snorkeling, or sunbathing as much as you please. You might also want to add some luxury to your honeymoon by visiting one of the luscious spas or overwater bungalows. Although the hotel rates for a trip in Bora Bora can be quite high, you’ll find that they’re certainly worth every penny, but you can cut the costs by going on a honeymoon anytime between December and March. In any case, you’ll still need to save extra money for such a trip to get the ultimate honeymoon.

3. Inverness

Inverness is best suited for newlyweds who’re looking for a quiet and luxurious honeymoon by the riverside. One thing you can enjoy in Inverness is staying at one of the handful of luxurious hotels there, preferably one with a contemporary style and central location so you can easily move around without having to walk long distances to reach your destination. You can enjoy a long, romantic walk along the banks of the River Ness, or you can visit the Caledonian Canal and enjoy an extended tour through the mesmerizing natural scenery and bodies of water.

4. Bali

Indonesia, or what’s commonly known among tourists as the Isle of Gods, houses one of the most romantic destinations for honeymooners across the world. There are multiple interesting destinations you can go to, like the infamous Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple, which has one of the most enchanting sunset views that you can see 200 feet above the Indian Ocean. You can also stay for the evening in which you can enjoy watching a nightly Kecak performance. You can also go surfing in Kuta, where you can also relax on the sand and enjoy watching a glamorous sunset.

5. Paris

Offering the best mixture of art, exotic food, and architecture, Paris is practically associated with love and that’s why it’s among the most popular destinations for honeymoons. When in Paris, one cannot help but splurge on everything. Stay at a luxurious hotel, like the Hotel Plaza Athénée, or go to some of the fancy restaurants dotting the city, like Boutary or La Scene Theleme. If you’re a literary buff, you can go to the infamous bookshop Shakespeare and Company and enjoy a literary afternoon along with your sweetheart.

6. Venice

Venice is yet another popular romantic getaway for newlyweds across the world. After seeing all the beautiful photos and footage of gondola rides on the internet, one could say that these are probably the optimal way you could get a romantic ride. Gondola rides will allow you to see the historic buildings through the Grand Canal and explore the charms and hidden gems of the city. You’ll also be able to enjoy a stroll around the Piazza San Marco or enjoy a ride to one of the islands near the city.

7. Cape Town

If you still haven’t decided which type of honeymoon you want, you can go to Cape Town, as you’d get to visit glittering bright blue beaches, view wild landscapes, enjoy a walk through the wine country, or even take a stroll with your spouse through the bustling city. In Cape Town, you can choose a place to stay in from an assortment of hotels, which will provide you with the ultimate private and romantic experience.


Memories of your honeymoon will likely stay with you forever, so you must make this period count by picking a great destination that suits your tastes and that of your spouse’s. It is also important to look for people’s reviews and thoughts about certain destinations before booking your flight. Finally, be sure that you have enough funds for your honeymoon months before planning it to avoid any issues during your journey.
