From the whimsical romantic ambiance of Paris to the mountain trail adventures on the Sunshine Coast, explore diverse destinations around the world for the most special trip of your life — your honeymoon.
Cruising Caribbean Seas: A Gorgeous Getaway
Picture pristine white-sandy beaches and lush, tropical rainforests. Honeymooners in love book cruises to sail to beautiful Caribbean islands, and who could blame them? A cruise provides the best of everything, from luxurious traveling on the sea to exotic island destinations. Aboard a cruise ship, not only can you and your loved one gaze at the breathtaking vistas of the Caribbean Sea, but you’ll also indulge in lavish cruise ship amenities. Once you hop off the ship, explore paradise, bask under the sun and escape into translucent blue seas.
Paris: A City Radiant With Je Ne Sais Quoi
Rich history, world-renowned landmarks and exquisite cuisine make Paris one of the most remarkable cities in the world. Lovers will love to visit the Louvre or Musée d’Orsey. Take a day trip to Versaille, photograph the Arc de Triumph and indulge in crepes and a baguette sandwich by the Seine. Paris is inarguably the city for romance, especially while gazing at the twinkling Eiffel Tower during an evening city stroll.
Sunshine Coast: Quaint & Coastal
The Sunshine Coast Trail stretches from Sarah Point to Saltery Bay in the British Columbia, Canada. The 180-km trail consists of gorgeous forests, coastal mountain trails and beautiful, sparkling lakes. The Coast offers newlyweds something old (the Sunshine Coast Trail), something new (Powell Forest Canoe Route), something borrowed (Powell River Historic Townsite) and something blue (Princess Lousia Inlet and Chatterbox Falls). Relax at spa retreats and discover all the cultural heritage and natural attractions as happy honeymooners. The Sunshine Coast Trail is also a prime honeymoon spot for active couples who seek multi-day hiking treks and scenic biking adventures.
Hawaii: A Splendor of Islands
In the fall of 2012, Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards voted the island of Maui as the “Top Island in the World.” Raved as a veritable paradise by Condé Nast Traveler readers, Maui is adored for its awe-inspired tropical surroundings, unworldly natural beauty and abundance of activities. Because of the close proximity of the main islands, newlyweds can fully experience Hawaii’s breathtaking beaches and outdoor adventures, from the sandy beach of Papohaku Beach in Molokai to snorkeling in the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
India: The Heart of Southern Asia
For sightseeing couples on a quest for adventure, India is a South-Asian destination that’s vibrant with cultural landmarks and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Embrace your inner tourist and experience the artistically iconic Taj Mahal, an architectural masterpiece in Agra. A mausoleum of white marble built with harmonious and excellent craftsmanship, as described by UNESCO World Heritage Centre, the Taj Mahal attracts tourists from all over the globe. The Taj Mahal is recognized as the jewel of Muslim art in India. Touring the majestic mausoleum would be an unforgettable experience to share as a newly wedded couple. From Agra, backpack onward to tropical Goa and relax at the stunning Bogmalo Beach or Coconut Creak Resorts.
