A honeymoon is a reward for all the hard work of planning the big wedding day. Now all that is behind you and instead it’s time to focus on the first trip you’ll be taking as a married couple. As it’s such a special occasion you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing the best location, one that’ll be able to cater to your every need. Take a look below at our list of amazing honeymoon spots, all guaranteed to get your marriage off to the most romantic of starts.

Venice

Perhaps an obvious choice, but one that’s still worth mentioning. With its canals, gondolas and fantastic cuisine, Venice has long been a favourite for couples embarking on their honeymoon. Don’t be surprised when you hear violins playing in the background, which all adds to the magical atmosphere that Venice loves to create. Early risers should also try to catch the sunrise in Venice, which is regarded as one of the best in the world.

Maldives

Home to some of the most picturesque scenes in the world, the Maldives is a breath taking, tropical paradise. There’s a diverse choice of resorts on the secluded, individual islands, and you’ll find brilliant white sands and vibrant coral reefs in abundance. Stay in one of the water bungalows and you’ll definitely be given memories to cherish forever.

Bora Bora

The small island of Bora Bora has amazing lagoons, luxurious resorts, warm waters and friendly locals. To put it simply, it’s one of the best honeymoon destinations around. Bora Bora is a great choice if you’re a couple who are after a more active trip, as you can hike Mount Otemanu, explore Valtape or snorkel in the beautiful water. You can even try something called miracle oil, which is made from coconut and tiare blossoms, and serves as a hair conditioner and moisturiser.

Santorini

Santorini is famous for its sunsets, tasty Greek food and hotels that will help to keep the romance flowing. Black and red sandy beaches are definitely worth a visit, as is the impressively preserved Ancient Akrotiri. Wine connoisseurs will be very happy here, as the rich volcanic soil is perfect for growing grapes, so head to a local tavern and taste some delicious flavours.

Maui

The second largest of Hawaii’s islands, Maui is regarded as the place that has it all. From diverse wildlife to intriguing history and rich culture, if you make a visit to Maui then you’re sure to have an amazing honeymoon. Explore Haleakala – the world’s largest dormant volcano – or take the Road to Hana to see the island’s scenic coastline. A top attraction is snorkelling alongside the different types of sea turtles, but if that sounds too much then lounging on one of the famous beaches should sound a bit more welcoming.

These destinations are some of the most beautiful places in the world, the perfect settings for any honeymoon.
