When you’re planning your wedding, there’s a lot to think about. You have to find the perfect wedding dress, book a venue, find a caterer, make sure all the guests get invited, and so on. By the time it’s said and done, and you’ll probably be more than ready to head out on your honeymoon and get away from everyday life with your new spouse. That’s why picking the perfect honeymoon destination is so important—your honeymoon should be all about you and your sweetie and be as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
For some, the perfect honeymoon may consist of heading to a remote cabin on a lake in the woods, spending all day fishing, walking the shoreline, sitting by the fire, and taking naps. For others, the perfect honeymoon may consist of heading to Las Vegas, staying in a luxury hotel, and going to show after show, seeing sight after sight, enjoying the nightlife, food, and shopping. Everyone’s ideal is different.
If you’re having trouble deciding what kind of honeymoon you want to take or where in the world you want to go, you might get some ideas from others. You can ask your friends and family where they spent their honeymoon time, or you could check out the places the rest of the world think are some of the most romantic honeymoon destinations on earth. The following are considered five of the top most romantic and best honeymoon destinations on the planet:
Bora Bora is a beautiful island in French Polynesia that you won’t soon forget. Although the island is only six miles long, it’s full of beauty and things to explore. The island has everything from pristine beaches to breathtaking jungles, and since the main source of income for the island is tourism, there’s no shortage of experiences to have. You can snorkel, explore the village, reflect on history at the WWII coastal guns, dine as you’ve never dined before, or relax on the beach and take in some vitamin sea.
If you’re looking for a beach getaway that has plenty to do, but not so much that you can’t take time to relax and enjoy the scenery, Bora Bora is one of the top honeymoon destinations that you should consider.
Tuscany is famous for its rolling hills and beautiful scenery. With the incredible food, stunning rows of grape vines, plenty of sunshine, and impossible-to-forget architecture, this region of Italy is one of the top places to get away on your honeymoon. While Italy is a big attraction for tourists, taking your visit up to Tuscany can help you avoid the crowded streets of big cities like Rome while still immersing you in the Italian culture.
In the area, you can visit or even stay in cities like Florence where you can enjoy gelato every day, explore museums, and enjoy incredible art. If you want to travel back to medieval times, Siena is the place you need to go. It’s a town on a hill with beautiful buildings that you can explore. If you want to enjoy some action, you can watch the Il Palio horse race or enjoy the unforgettable local cuisine. Tuscany also happens to be home to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and cities in the wine region so you can tour the sites and settle down with a wine tasting you won’t soon forget.
If you weren’t planning on traveling to Italy, but are interested in enjoying the beauties and benefits of wine country, Napa Valley is a great honeymoon destination where couples can’t help but fall in love. Napa Valley is well known for its wine, vineyards, and incredible properties that you may be able to stay on. Not only can you taste wine all day if you honeymoon in Napa Valley, but you can also take a break and go golfing, get a spa treatment, and enjoy a gourmet meal.
Tahiti is a vacation that many dream of taking, but never get around to going. If it’s a location on your bucket list, why not honeymoon there? After all, how many other times in your life will you have a good enough excuse to travel to and vacation in Tahiti? Maybe a few, but not as many as you’d like.
Another perfect honeymoon destination if you’re looking for a beach getaway, Tahiti offers beautiful forests and incredible beaches as well as delicious cuisine and even luxury resorts. You can enjoy a secluded hut and walks on the beach every day, or you can explore the eclectic cities and enjoy the unique culture that the locals have helped create for travelers.
Oh, Paris. How could it not make the list? It’s sometimes called the city of love, after all. Paris is the perfect European getaway with everything from incredible wines and fresh food at the markets to incredible theater experiences you won’t soon forget.
You can explore museum after museum or shop the fashion-forward stores throughout the city. You can walk the halls of a royal palace or overlook the entire place from the top of the Eiffel Tower. If you’re not up to visiting all of the museums and cathedrals that Paris has to offer one day, you can stay in at your unique hotel and relax.
