Honeymoon planning is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process, but it can also be overwhelming to find and book your dream vacation location from scratch. Luckily, there are plenty of dreamy honeymoon destinations around the world that are perfect for newlyweds! To make the process of choosing your perfect honeymoon destination easier, here are ten dreamy honeymoon destinations you’ll fall in love with. These destinations are not only romantic, but they’re also beautiful and fun! Just imagine spending your honeymoon at these 10 dreamy honeymoon destinations!
1) Paris, France:
The City of Light is known for its romance, beauty and charm. There’s plenty to see and do in Paris, including a bateau-mouche cruise along the Seine or a tour through Montmartre, where you can visit such popular attractions as Place du Tertre (home to artists who have made it their home) and Notre Dame Cathedral. In addition to taking care of sightseeing, don’t forget about all those romantic restaurants waiting for you to try them out! If you’re looking for something more exotic than French food, head over to Chinatown where Cantonese dim sum awaits at Quan Ju Deo Jiao Yun.
Long considered paradise on Earth, Hawaii is home to some of most beautiful places to visit in all of North America. If you’re looking for a destination with an ocean-centric landscape, beautiful beaches and plenty of activities available, then look no further than the islands of Hawaii. After your plane lands at Honolulu International Airport (HNL), you can grab your bags and walk right out into paradise at one of Oahu’s many resorts. The best part about Oahu is that it features so many different things to do – take your pick from activities like surfing, stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking.
People visit Iceland to see the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) as well as for its abundance of natural hot springs and waterfalls. You can find hot springs scattered throughout nearly every corner of Iceland. Each is unique and varied, some are free and others require you to pay a small entrance fee. The Golden Circle route, which cuts through southern Iceland from Reykjavik, is filled with many attractions like these and offers an excellent opportunity to experience more than one at once. If you have time, try visiting Seljalandsfoss and Strokkur Geysir Hot Springs! Close by are other stunning natural wonders such as Gullfoss Waterfall, Þingvellir National Park and Lake Myvatn; all worth seeing before your trip ends.
4) Bora Bora:
Even though Bora Bora is getting a lot of hype as a honeymoon destination, it’s still relatively off-the-radar—and that’s what makes it so special. There are no cruise ships or fancy hotels; just impeccable beaches and crystal clear water. For privacy, stay at an over-water bungalow and get married on one of those beaches where your feet can’t touch. Visitors should enjoy snorkeling, hiking and kayaking through gorgeous scenery. But you don’t want to spend all your time working out—after all, you’re on vacation!
There are many reasons to visit Ireland, but we believe one of them is romantic: It’s a magical place. The misty Irish countryside will make you feel like you’re living inside a storybook. Plus, there’s nothing like getting married on a rugged cliff overlooking a view of crashing waves—or even better, at sea (hello, Westport). If you want to relax and get away from it all during your honeymoon, head to Ireland. You won’t regret it.
6) Napa Valley, California:
Couples planning their honeymoons will find a lot to love about Napa Valley. Start off your marriage by driving through a few of Napa’s famous wineries, such as Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and Silverado Vineyards, then stop at one of its acclaimed restaurants—like Bouchon or Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch—for lunch.
There are hundreds of hotels and inns to choose from; Andaz Napa has a secluded outdoor pool that looks out over vineyards, while The Carneros Inn offers stunning views.
7) New Zealand:
New Zealand is one of those destinations where it’s hard to pick your favorite activity. Hiking through stunning national parks, tasting award-winning wines, paddling your own canoe through a remote wilderness setting—the list goes on and on. There are more than 300 islands that make up New Zealand’s spectacular landscape, so you can enjoy activities like mountain biking, rafting or diving (watch out for sharks!).
If you can’t choose just one destination in New Zealand for your honeymoon, simply combine a few. Fly from Auckland to Queenstown—two different but equally amazing locations—to see everything from iconic mountains to pristine beaches.
8) Santorini, Greece:
Many people dream of taking a romantic trip to Santorini, one of Greece’s most stunning islands. There are several places on Santorini that provide amazing views at sunset; Oia is one place that has breathtaking views that you will remember for years to come. While there, you can also enjoy Greek cuisine at restaurants and cafes. The town of Fira provides plenty of shopping opportunities with small shops selling handcrafted jewelry, leather goods and souvenirs.
If you’re looking for something fun to do during your honeymoon, take a walk through Fira’s small alleyways or go down to Akrotiri Beach where you can relax in one of their many beachside lounges. The best time to visit Santorini is between May and October when temperatures are milder and crowds aren’t as big as they tend to be during peak tourist season (June through August). This destination provides plenty of activities so couples won’t get bored easily.
Your stay should include accommodation at an all-inclusive resort where you can have meals prepared by their chef while enjoying drinks from their bar.
9) Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe (if you’re adventurous!):
Few places on earth boast as much natural beauty as Victoria Falls. There’s a reason it’s called the 7th wonder of the world. While Zimbabwe has largely been overlooked by visitors due to political turmoil, recent reports show that visiting is safe again and tourists are flocking back.
Don’t miss a chance to visit one of our most spectacular and beautiful natural wonders – you won’t regret it! This awesome destination is best enjoyed during spring and summer when there are fewer crowds and water levels aren’t so extreme. Also consider staying at one of their many luxury lodges or honeymoon packages if your budget allows!
10) Venice, Italy:
This is one of those places that never loses its beauty and charm. There are simply too many things to see and do that you won’t want to leave, which could present a problem if you’re on a honeymoon. (No pressure, but you should definitely make time for your hotel room.) Located on one of Europe’s largest canals, floating above Piazza San Marco’s famous gold mosaic-tiled floor, it’s hard not to fall in love with Venice.
Walk hand-in-hand through St. Mark’s Square, take a gondola ride down one of several canals or have an unforgettable dinner at Ristorante Florian. No matter what you choose to do while visiting Venice, it will be easy to find plenty of reasons why you fell in love with each other all over again.
