If you are getting married, your honeymoon will be unlike any other vacation you will take, providing you with the perfect opportunity to create intimate memories with your other half. Many couples decide to treat themselves to a once-in-a-lifetime trip for their honeymoon, visiting a dream romantic destination. However, with many destinations to choose from, it can sometimes feel as though you are only adding to your bucket list rather than pinpointing a specific location. Here are four romantic destinations for your dream honeymoon to give you some ideas and help you narrow down your search.
Paris, the capital city of France, has a reputation for being one of the most romantic cities on earth, and it’s not difficult to see why. From indulging in delicious French cuisine at a Parisian fine dining restaurant to watching the sunset on the Eiffel Tower, there are plenty of experiences to share with your new spouse. Paris is steeped in culture, so you’ll never be short of things to do, such as visiting the world-famous Louvre art museum, where the Mona Lisa is housed, or check out a captivating cabaret in the bohemian Montmartre district, such as the Moulin Rouge. There truly is something to suit every couple’s taste in Paris.
Maui is a Hawaiian island that is famous for its first-class beaches and resorts, and as such, is perfect if you want to spend your honeymoon relaxing with your other half and enjoying long days on the beach. Maui resorts offer everything you need to fully enjoy your tropical island honeymoon, from the lively nightlife and delicious Hawaiian cuisine to spa facilities and shopping. There is plenty for you to do should you choose to leave your resort: Maui is famous for its water sports and whale watching opportunities.
Kenya is quickly gaining popularity as an ideal honeymoon destination for couples wanting a mixture of luxury and activity. The country’s national parks and game reserves, such as the Maasai Mara, provide you with the opportunity to spot elephants, lions, and zebras on a once-in-a-lifetime safari trip. You could also take to the skies on a romantic hot air balloon ride to admire the blazing rays of the sun setting over the savanna. Round off your trip with a few days in cosmopolitan Nairobi, where you can learn more about the fascinating history of this beautiful country.
The Italian city of Venice is another European destination that is inextricably linked with romance. With its world-famous canals and Renaissance architecture, it is a one-of-a-kind destination that will take your breath away. Take a romantic trip on a gondola, navigated by a striped shirt-clad gondolier, to explore the waterways of the city in style. A coffee or bellini cocktail in a café in Piazza San Marco is a must-have Venetian experience, and if you want to escape the crowds for a few hours, you could take a trip to an island in the lagoon, such as Murano.
