The all-important Honeymoon! Time to relax and enjoy some alone time with your partner after months of planning and a big day of celebrations. But where does the happy couple go? We’ve picked some of our favourite, idyllic honeymoon destinations in the world.
Time to go: December- April (But Hawaii is great all year round)
Hawaii is a great cluster of many islands you can pick and chose from to suit the type of holiday you want! If you want to be amongst the bustling city, trendy shops and great food locations then Honolulu is for you! If you and your partner want a more relaxed and secluded honeymoon Kauai is a beautiful spot. With lush, tropical vegetation covering the island it feels private and intimate.
Time to go: If you want sun than May-August is the best time to go, but if you’re a lover of snow and want to go at a less touristy time than go November-February.
For those art lovers Amsterdam is for you. It’s one of the most beautiful, historic cities in the world, full of culture, food, music and art! This is a great place to unwind with your partner but also tick off a few touristy activities if you’re not the kind of couple to just lie by a pool for two weeks. Hop on a bike and explore as much or little as you want. You can then return to your very own houseboat on the canal at night whilst sipping on some Jenever- Dutch gin!
Amsterdam is one of the most attractive cities in Europe. Nowhere in the world you will find so many gay–friendly attractions than in the city centre of Amsterdam.
Time to go: May-October
If lying by a pool with a cocktail in hand sounds like you, then Mykonos is the place to go! With loads of villas on the island you will be left with heaps choices. Each hotel or villa seems to have a fabulous view overlooking the ocean with stunning blue and white buildings dotting down the landscape. After maybe 5 or 6 days recovering here you may feel like exploring the many historical sites, or just hitting the numerous bars 😉
Time to go: June-August
The city of love! Everyone loves and dreams of Paris. The beautiful cobbled streets, the fashion, the food, the shows, the art…. The list goes on. If you and your partner want to experience and share all of these glorious things together than Paris is a must! There are so many luxurious accommodation options to please any couple. Whether you want a sleek hotel that steps out onto the Champs-Élysées or a modern styled apartment that looks over the Canal Saint-Martin, Paris will satisfy you.
Time to go: Miami can be great all year around. June-August is when a lot of families visit and the sun is always out and shining. September-November can be hit and miss, but if you do get beautiful weather, flights and accommodation prices can be much lower as it’s the low season. December-February is another great time to go, slightly cooler than June-August but similar to a beautiful Melbourne Spring.
Miami has the best vibes- sun, beach, fun and full of great people. This glamorous city is known for it’s colourful and art deco styled buildings and gorgeous white sand beaches on its doorstep. If you want glitz and glamour Miami is for you with some of the hottest nightlife destinations in the world. You can relax on the beach by day and party it up with your lover by night!
Time to go: September. You miss school holidays, box jellyfish aren’t around and the weather is amazing.
If you’re looking to explore your Australian backyard why not retreat to the beautiful, picturesque Whitsundays. With gorgeous white, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, we are sure you’ll have a relaxing and glorious time. Accommodation options are endless as you and your partner could hire a yacht, stay in a lush hotel or even rent a private villa. There are also so many activities to do in the Whitsundays, the most famous being snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef or charter a helicopter over the picturesque Whitsunday Islands.
Your honeymoon is the first destination you will travel as a married couple, a journey that represents a new beginning of your lives together. – Enjoy it!
