Is there a better feeling than sharing a romantic trip with someone you love? I’d say it’s hard to top! Especially after celebrating your special day together, your honeymoon is a beautiful time to just soak it all in. We’re breaking this list down by type of couple, rather than by destination. Are you adventure-seekers? Party animals? Relaxation experts? We’ve got you covered! Enjoy these honeymoon destinations for every couple!
For the adventurers…
Hawaii is all about adventure. It is known for having some of the best hikes, waterfalls and swimming holes in the world! If you’re interested in snorkelling and diving, you have to go to Molokini — a small, crescent-moon-shaped islet off of Maui’s southwestern coast, home to over 250 species of tropical fish. If you’re more of a land animal, then Haleakala National Park, otherwise known as the “House of the Sun” is for you. It is Maui’s highest peak (10,023 feet above sea level)! With over 30,000 acres of land, you can do anything from hiking, camping and horseback riding, all while enjoying some of the most memorable sunrises and sunsets the world has to offer.
Costa Rica has plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures, including whitewater rafting, zip-lining and day (or even night) hikes in the rainforest! This trip will require a little more travelling (I’d recommend at least 2-3 weeks and renting a car), as each province has its own charms. The capital of San Jose is close to Manuel Antonio National Park where you can find toucans, and sloths and go on an ATV tour for a real adrenaline rush. About three hours away, you’ll discover the town of La Fortuna, which is home to the famous Arenal Volcano. Here, you can also whitewater raft and go on nocturnal wildlife expeditions. Plenty of adventures to choose from!
For the partiers…
Island hopping in Greece is a great choice for those who love to have a good time! While Greece is a very romantic destination, known for its iconic sunsets, it’s also one of the biggest party countries in Europe. If nightlife is your thing, give Mykonos a shot for your honeymoon! Known as the Ibiza of Greece, this island in the Cyclades is home to some of the most famous clubs and pool parties in the world. You might also run into a few celebrities while over there, making it a truly unforgettable trip!
California is a beautiful place for a honeymoon. There is just so much to see and do! You can experience the laid-back beach vibes, the glamour of Hollywood and the natural beauty of numerous national parks, all in the same state. Rent a car and drive along the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to San Francisco, checking out the Big Sur coastline. California isn’t for the faint of heart! It’s a crazy place, but definitely a trip of a lifetime.
For the chillers…
You simply can’t make a honeymoon destination guide without including Bali! I’m including it in the relaxation section, but you can truly make it into any holiday you want. For ultimate relaxation, Ubud is a must-see. Whatever you picture when you think of Bali, I’m sure you’re imagining Ubud — lush jungle, beautiful waterfalls and a sense of zen unlike anywhere else in the world. AND, Bali is way more affordable compared to Bora Bora and the Maldives, so you’ll be able to splurge on that treetop luxury villa you’re dreaming of!
Although it may sound simple, a couples-only all-inclusive resort may be just your thing. With an all-inclusive, you don’t have to worry about searching for a good restaurant in the area or how to spend your time — you just have to pick and choose! Thankfully, Jamaica is known for its honeymoons and there are so many packages to choose from. The Seven Mile Beach in Negril is certainly worth its reputation — the calm waters, the pristine sand; it is an absolute paradise for sunbathing and reading the day away.
