Best Places for Your Honeymoon
A honeymoon is a celebration of love, sometimes more so than a wedding. These are the first steps you will take with your significant other into the world, and no matter what people tend to say about ‘superficiality’ of such occasions, first impressions do count. If you want to embark on a perfect and encouraging escapade as newlyweds, here are the best places you can possibly imagine for a honeymoon.
There is hardly a better destination for a romantic honeymoon, which mixes the old-world charm with epic vistas, than the Mediterranean Europe. Italian coastline is favourite among newlyweds, especially the lauded island surrounded with imposing rocks which stand like monuments in the middle of the azure sea. Capri Island has a sort of mystical allure and warmth in equal measure. This balance of rustic ideals and breathtaking landscapes is what attracts so many fresh couples from every corner of the globe.
Of course, hardly anything compares with the honeymoon in the City of Love and Lights. It tops almost every list and this is hardly a surprise. Your loved one will definitely appreciate this choice, and just imagine the look on their face once you pull the tickets out of your hat. You can even try to create a more romantic-dramatic situation by placing the plane tickets into the gift box perfectly wrapped into a personalised ribbon with two of your initials printed together. Where to begin with this city? From the iconic Eiffel Tower to the Notre-Dame cathedral, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and the renowned Palace of Versailles, Paris is an urban wonder filled with architectural and cultural treasures.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
French Polynesia is a vast assembly of islands in South Pacific, which renders it a perfect getaway playground for honeymooners that are in love with tropical landscapes. Romantic walk along the beach under the starry skies sounds like an ideal setup for the ultimate honeymoon, and Bora Bora boasts some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see. Due to the nigh-fantastical appearance of its lagoons and captivating (and iconic) look of its accommodations, Bora Bora is by far the most popular of the Society Islands. Be forewarned though, this enchanting fragment of land hidden among the Pacific waves comes with steep price tags
San Juan, Puerto Rico
On the other hand, while we are still on the topic of tropical paradises, there is Puerto Rico. This Caribbean island offers a plethora of incredible equatorial delights for lovestruck newlyweds, but it is much more economically reasonable. The capital city of San Juan brims with cultural attractions and incredibly dynamic nightlife, and the famous Blue Beach is a world-renowned hotspot for snorkelers that want to inspect the rich underwater flora and fauna. This is also a place where you can experience one of the most idealized romantic scenes – the pair of you can ride on wild horses on the scorching shore sands as the sunset warms your back.
Lake Tahoe, California
If you are looking for the impromptu honeymoon destination right now, on the cusp of August, there is hardly a better place than Lake Tahoe in California. The expansive landscapes give into sharp mountain ranges with snowy tops, and the mosaic of watercolour inflected delights on the shorelines of the lake is surely a different, and yet perfectly romantic setup for lovebirds. Instead of hectic samba sounds and screeching of wildlife, you will be lulled into sleep by the gentle sounds of water and chirping of crickets. Lake Tahoe is a picture-perfect honeymoon spot for couples who seek a Zen experience, far away from the verve of the city.
An enjoyable honeymoon immediately after tying the knot is not only an excuse to indulge in countless pleasures, but it is also a spiritual ‘investment’, the contract with fate to appease its whims through Dionysian celebration between two people. The destinations suggested above offer some of the most sumptuous assortments of fun and they have been counted as the ultimately popular, romantic backdrops ideal for your love to thrive.
