Honeymoon Your Way at Our Favorite Picks
Perhaps one of the most joyous parts of wedding planning is picking out that destination where you will get away from it all and focus on deepening that bond as husband and wife... the Honeymoon. With so many decisions to make, we thought we’d help make this one a no-brainer by highlighting our favorite destinations to cuddle up, explore, relax, dine, drink and play until your hearts’ are content. The only problem will be making that return flight.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
You’ve seen the pics... crystal clear waters, every shade of blue, water-suspended grass-roof bungalows, stairs that head directly from your abode into the turquoise sea, and picturesque lighting for the perfect honeymoon album...need we say more? Ok we will! Charter a helicopter to take you around Mount Otemanu, go snorkeling at Coral Gardens with the most vibrant, colorful fish, bike the island at a leisurely, lovingly pace, book a jet ski tour for a fun rush of adrenaline, and if you care to let loose a little more head to Bloody Mary’s restaurant/bar in Vaitape. So need we say it? Book it
A whitewashed cliff side city set against the Aegean Sea, Santorini may be one of the most picturesque landscapes in the world. While you’ll likely want to spend a great deal of your time on the beach (Kamari Beach is a must stop!), there is plenty to explore in Santorini! Take your tanned skin, throw on that flowy dress and explore the paths, alleys and stairwells of Oia and Fira! (Fun tip: walk down the stairs to the Old Port, grab a drink, then take the cable car back up!). Hop on that scooter and go explore the red and black sand beaches, check out Akrotiri to visit wineries and boutiques, and book a catamaran sunset cruise. Have we convinced you yet? Well, how about the fact that you can stay in a windmill... for real! The Windmill Suite at Golden Sunset Villas
in Oia is pretty incredible with the perfect bird’s-eye view of the world famous Oia sunset. Bucket-list worthy.
Can you say “Amore”?! What says love more than a gondola ride through the Grand Canal as you sail past historical buildings? Swoon. A time old tradition that will forever mean romance, it shoots to the top of the list! One of our favorite insider tips is to set up a secret wine tour to discover the wine cellars only the locals know about... a heavy dose of chicchetti included, Saluti! And while you’re there, delight your eyes with masterpieces by the Venetian masters, indulge in gelato, and of course cruise (literally) over to the islands of Lido, Murano or Bruano!
Harbour Island, Bahamas
Tropical, check. Warm, crystal clear blue ocean water, check. Snorkeling, check. Tranquility, check. Pink sand beaches, what?! CHECK! It’s no wonder Harbour Island was ranked as one of the best beaches by Fodors, Frommers and The Travel Channel! Layer in the best restaurants the Bahamas has to offer and aqua blue golf carts as the choice mode of transportation, this island escape has us wanting to move up the wedding date. And the cherry on top? The Ocean View. No, not the ocean view (yes, it’s beyond spectacular!) but The Ocean View, the quaint hotel that prides itself as a second home to its guests. An impeccably designed second home with a contemporary slant and Bahamian flavor, you’ll want to call it your first home.<cancels return flight. moves in.>
And we’re not going to say we have a favorite, but holymolytakemehereineeditiwantitihavetogohere! (subtle) But seriously, have you seen this place?! The Amilla Fushi Resort is next level. Seriously. We’re just going to let the pics speak for themselves.
Just one question, when do we leave? Happy Honeymooning!!
