Five Beautiful Honeymoon Destinations

August 18, 2010

The honeymoon is the perfect time for a new couple to relax and enjoy each other’s company, especially after months spent planning the wedding. There is no longer any planning to worry about and you can use this vacation as way to unwind from stress of planning the wedding celebration. Honeymoons are usually spent in a secluded destination at a private resort. If you are unfamiliar with any destinations that you are considering, it may be best to speak with a travel agent. There are many excellent travel agencies, which include Liberty Travel, Expedia, and AAA. A honeymoon can be enjoyed almost anywhere, but below are five destinations that I enjoy the most.


Cancun is an excellent choice with many beautiful beaches. The town of Cancun also offers activities such as horseback riding, scuba diving and para-sailing. It is a popular honeymoon destination with many resorts to choose from. There are many hotel chains available along with lodging unique to Cancun. Along with the beaches, you can experience Mayan culture by visiting the archaeological sites such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba.


Jamaica is a wonderful honeymoon destination because of its sunsets, white beaches, green mountains, and stunning waterfalls. There are a variety of hotels and resorts available, but some hotels are more for families rather than couples on their honeymoon. The Sandals Dunn’s River Villaggio Golf Resort and Spa or Sandals Montego Bay are two excellent hotel choices that are perfect for a honeymoon. Another excellent hotel is The Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach & Villa Resort, which has over 110 acres of property along with championship golf and scuba diving. You could also choose a classic Jamaican hotel by staying at the Jamaica Inn, which has a 700-foot private beach, and every suite has a view of the ocean.


Hawaii is an amazing location for couples on their honeymoon. Maui is a large island with many sightseeing opportunities like snorkeling, helicopter tours, and you can even tour a volcano. The Four Seasons Maui Resort is the only 5-Star Resort in Hawaii and it provides couples with an amazing experience. If you want to get even farther away, then check out Hotel Hana Maui and Honua Spa. Another interesting choice is the ka’anapali beach hotel, which stays true to Hawaiian culture.

St. Lucia

St Lucia is located in the Lesser Antilles and it is perfect for couples who want to relax in a secluded location that is not overcrowded with tourists. This island is known for its hiking and cycling trails, gardens, and fishing. St. Lucia is rich is French culture and it is a small, lush island that remains less developed when compared to other Islands in the Caribbean.


If you are interested in diving and snorkeling in clear blue water or relaxing in the sun, the Bahamas may be the destination for you. It is in close proximity to the United States and the flight would not be very long. The two largest resorts are The Reef Atlantis and the Cove Atlantis, but there are also more private resorts like Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort and Offshore Island.

    This is a great guide. One of our favorite honeymoon destinations is Turks & Caicos. There are lots of good resorts, but Beaches Resorts, which is part of the Sandals chain, is also a great location / resort.

      Apologies for not responding sooner. I believe Paris, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Lisbon and even Ireland are good honeymoon destinations but if you want to simply relax, then nothing beats an island. Fiji, Bora Bora, Tahiti, Hawaii are all good choices.

    Great destinations, though there is missing at least one destination from Central America, it has so many beautiful places to go and to chose from.

    Pura Vida!
