Top 10 Honeymoon Locations
April 26, 2014
It’s about that time that every bride I know has honeymoon fever and is trying to figure out where to go to spend a good week or two with their new hubby. Including myself! The choices are endless and so I thought I would ask the experts. You guys!
I received well over 500 responses to find out where the most loved honeymoon locations in the world are. I’m not at all surprised by the romantic locations suggested and all of the descriptions made me want to visit each and every place! If only. You can check out my post on Facebook HERE to find recommendations for your next trip by readers alike.
Hawaii was by FAR the most beloved location for a honeymoon. Maybe it’s because Hawaii is more accessible and easier to travel to but whatever the case may be this U.S. island is the number 1 choice for a honeymoon. I have always had a love affair with Hawaii yet we have never met before. When I was 21 I wanted to move there sight unseen because of the beautiful scenery, beach lifestyle and water activities. I know I will make it there someday… maybe even for our honeymoon?
2.) BORA BORA
Bora Bora is on the top of our list as a possibility for our honeymoon also because of the rave reviews we have heard from pretty much everyone. The stand alone huts and pristine waters are only a few reasons why this exotic location has become a favorite for honeymooners. You can relax in seclusion. The perfect setting for newlyweds.
3.) ST. LUCIA
St. Lucia was right up there with Bora Bora on the comments and suggestions by readers and offers variety. If you are more of an adventurous couple then this might be the island for you to see. They have tours of the island, hikes, waterfalls, and a rainforest to explore. The dramatic twin peaks, The Pitons, are an idyllic backdrop soaring high above the sea.
Aruba. The name alone sounds tropical and exciting. Also, you won’t have to worry about a possible tropical storm or short drizzle that happens often in the Caribbean because this is the island with the most sunny days! How’s that for a perfect beach vacation.
Australia has so much to offer, whether you are looking for a remote island or a city excursion this is the place to be. From the beautiful sunsets to the kangaroos on the beach, what’s not to love! I have always wanted to visit Australia and is a location still on my bucket list. Also the many people I have met (via social media) from this wonderful place have all been so pleasant, so that’s an added bonus to count on.
6.) PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Punta Cana is a location I have never heard of before, but I am so glad that it was brought to my attention. What a magnificent place!! All of these top 10 honeymoon locations are on the water, but the pure seduction of Punta Cana’s water and vastness of beaches sets itself apart. This is definitely a place I would love to visit and may be on the list for our honeymoon.
About 8 years ago I had the privilege of visiting Ocho Rios, Jamaica and that experience makes me want to go back. Jamaica is full of life and personality. The palm trees, beaches and turquoise water are a dream come true and the Dunn’s River Falls are a sight to see.
No matter what part of Italy you visit, you will not be disappointed. It is the country of romance and well I would say romance is what’s needed on a honeymoon. Am I right!? So what a perfect place to be. There’s also a lot to do if you aren’t the kind of couple that want to only lay on a beach for a week.
9.) SANTORINI, GREECE
Those who said Santorini was their top pick for a honeymoon location were also very passionate about their response. Now I can see why! That sunset! Those perfect white buildings! That ocean and landscape! I am amazed by all of its’ beauty. INCREDIBLE!
10.) TURKS & CAICOS
I’ve heard many great things about Turks & Caicos and this Caribbean island is sure to please. The flawless sand and beaches speak for themselves! Cozy up along the water and forget about all of the ‘thank you’ cards you have to write when you get back. Honeymoons are meant for relaxation and to start your marriage off with your feet in the water and chair in the sand. Enjoy!
