So you’ve just tied the knot and need a break away from the rush of it all, a time to be alone with your new spouse and to truly celebrate this new married life. A honeymoon is just what you need after all the stress of planning a wedding and to get to ease into married life. Just a warning, though – honeymoons take some serious prep-time and so planning this getaway should start at the same time as planning the wedding.
This world has so much to offer with its different landscapes, climates, and cultures, and choosing the right place can be difficult. Have no fear, here’s a list of some of the best places in the world to take a honeymoon that can satisfy all sorts of tastes.
Moraine Lake, Alberta, Canada
This glacier-side destination comes with picturesque and surreal surroundings with bright turquoise waters, miles and miles of forest, and a snow-covered mountain peak. It’s the perfect place for a quiet and intimate time with your new spouse, and there’s something about the freshness of the atmosphere to remind you about the freshness of your marriage.
Known as one of the world’s romantic regions, Tuscany graces its newlywed visitors with art, food, and wine. Italians have a flair for romance with their song and dance, which are both wonderful ways to connect with your spouse. Tuscany offers hours of walking through the towns or along the mountain hills and many wonderful sights to see.
Mykonos is an island of celebration and parties. On top of that, it’s famous for its crystal-clear waters, its warm beaches, and its luxury villas. Spend hours tanning on the beaches or shopping in the whitewashed town, then follow it with partying with the exciting nightlife.
Cairo is one of the more unusual destinations to visit on a honeymoon. That doesn’t make it any less thrilling, though. Cast yourself and your spouse into the time of Ancient Egyptians while visiting the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. Temperatures can soar, so the best time to visit is in the winter.
Laguna Beach, California, USA
A trip to Laguna Beach, California, is a wonderful way to spend your honeymoon. The beachside resorts offer marvelous views of the ocean. There’s also plenty for newlyweds to do, like whale watching or hiking. If you plan the trip right, you might also catch an outdoor festival.
Pink Salt Lake, Goldfields-Esperance, Australia
Also a slightly unusual destination for a honeymoon, the Pink Salt Lake in Western Australia gives couples the chance to see unusual wildlife and uniquely-colored salt lakes. The lakes are even safe to swim in. This honeymoon destination is perfect for couples who consider themselves out of the ordinary.
Martinique, the Caribbean Islands
The Caribbean islands are known for their tropical climate and beautiful beaches. Martinique is no different. The island is packed with steep hills that grant mind-blowing views of the surrounding rainforests, as well as many shops and cafes to try some new foods. The lush surroundings give the perfect place to relax and recuperate with your new partner.
Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, Western Cape, South Africa
Here’s something new to try – a hotel room that is embedded within rock formations. This is what the Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve in South Africa gives its guests. On this honeymoon, you can treat yourself to spectacular views of the fynbos (some native plants) and a relaxing dip in the private rock pool.
