After months of stressful planning to make your big day the perfect celebration, there’s nothing like getting away from it all to elope with your sweetheart as you celebrate your marriage. Of course, planning the perfect honeymoon can be just as tedious.
If picking out flower bouquets and wedding dresses has left you exhausted, then check out these top 5 romantic honeymoon destinations. From the Bahamas to Indonesia, these are best places for newlyweds to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
1. The Bahamas
This tropical destination is a classic that never goes out of style. You can choose from a multitude of islands, each with their own beaches and resorts. The Bahamas are also excellent at accommodating honeymoon plans. Let your hotel know ahead of time and they’ll add plenty of romantic touches.
As a regular vacation destination, the Bahamas are brimming with things to keep you entertained. Live music, boat rides, sunset dinners and more await. Of course, you can always skip the festivities to bask in the sun on some of the most popular beaches in the world.
2. French Riviera
France is often considered one of the most romantic countries in the world, and the Riviera is proof of that. Located on the Mediterranean coast, this is an ideal beach destination complete with a subtropical climate.
An old-fashioned town offers once in a lifetime shopping experiences in some of the most beautiful buildings imaginable. Plus, the food is incredible. With so many fine dining options, you might want to pick out a few new evening gowns.
3. The Caribbean
An ever-popular destination, the Caribbean offers vacationers and honeymooners alike the ultimate getaway. Plan your trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands, and you can enjoy sights from one of the largest coral reef systems in the world.
With white sand beaches and crystal-clear water, there’s plenty of opportunity to relax or play in the sun. From December until April, you can also catch a glimpse of migrating whales right off shore.
Colorado is home to some of America’s most serene nature settings, with Aspen taking the cake. If you and your partner are nature lovers, then there’s no better place to spend your honeymoon that in the tree-covered mountains.
You can choose take advantage of snowy pastimes in the winter, or any of the mountain’s summertime activities if the cold isn’t your thing. Best of all, Aspen is home to the world’s oldest (and perhaps most rejuvenating) spas. Aspen isn’t cheap, however, so you might want to consider creating a crowdfunding page on Honeyfund to help foot the bill.
This paradise in French Polynesia is often nicknamed the Island of Love, which is why it earns a spot on this list. The landscape itself is breathtaking, placing you and your partner in the ultimate romantic setting. From the mountainous views in the background to the surrounding lush valley, Tahiti truly is paradise.
Aside from the view, the two of you can enjoy fantastically fresh meals rich in local flavors while sitting on the beach. Take a swim in the warm waters, walk along exotic forest rivers, or take in the various waterfalls in the area. Whatever your interests are, Tahiti is sure to satisfy.
