The honeymoon is probably the most special holiday that you will have as a couple. It’s your first break away together as a married couple, and is a time to relax after the busy time of planning and celebrating the wedding ceremony.
Certain places in the world have long been popular with honeymooners, because of the fantastic weather, romantic scenery, luxury accommodation and beautiful beaches. Couples who share the same interest in geography and travel, having met through a profile matching dating site like eharmony UK may choose to plan a travelling honeymoon that allows them to soak up lots of culture and see many different countries.
When honeymooning, although the desire to be affectionate will be strong as newlyweds, be sure to observe local cultures – for example Indian dating can be a lot more reserved than Western dating, and public displays of affection are frowned upon and even illegal in some countries! Check the rules before you travel to avoid embarrassing situations.
Tropical Islands and Hot Weather
Tropical islands and hot weather are on the tops of most couples’ list for their dream honeymoons. The most popular places to visit our St Lucia, Antigua, The Bahamas and Jamaica. Along with beautiful white sandy palm tree lined beaches, these area are great for relaxing in a hammock sipping on cocktails, or snorkelling and enjoying other water sports. All of these islands offer adult only resorts to guarantee peace and quiet too.
European culture and romance
The European capital cities are thought to be the most romantic in the world. Paris is always highlighted as the city of love, with great food made with plenty of passion and beautiful architecture. Barcelona and Rome are also top choices for romantic breaks, and a trip around the canals of Venice is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe.
Adventure and excitement
Couples not content with relaxing on a beach all day can find fun and thrills on their honeymoon too. Borneo is a fantastic place to visit for jungle trekking, and monkey spotting river rides. Iceland is romantic in a snuggle up and keep warm way, with trips to the fascinating Geysers, waterfalls, hot springs and amazing views, there is plenty to explore. Or if being close to nature isn’t quite right for you, but you like it to be busy, consider a New York shopping holiday, Orlanda for the Theme Parks or the bright lights of Las Vegas.
