Planning a wedding can be overwhelming.  There are a million decisions to be made and details to plan.  As much as you can get consumed by the details one of the most important decisions you need to make is deciding where you will begin your happily ever after?  You need to know the top 10 honeymoon destinations so you can start your new life off right!

Honeymoons come in all shapes and sizes based on your likes, dreams, and personalities as a couple.  Are you looking for a beach vacation, a safari, a historical adventure?   Here is a snapshot of the top 10 honeymoon destinations, from sunny beaches to historic cities and natural wonders.


Top 10 Honeymoon Destinations


The island of “One Love”; friendly people, warm weather, all-inclusive resorts, one of the most beautiful beaches (Negril), and jerk chicken!  Need some packing tips for your beachy honeymoon?  Print this out and keep handy while you’re packing!


Paradise in the pacific! History in Pearl Harbor, tropical rainforests of the Garden Isle, volcanoes, beautiful beaches everywhere, Lush landscape, surfing, Spinner Dolphins, Humpback Whales, Turtles, and who can resist Hula Pie?



Whether you want to drive the Amalfi Coast to seaside villages, drink wine in Tuscany, visit the ancient city of Rome, stay at the foothills of the Alps in Northern Italy in nature, or share a gondola ride in Venice, Italy has something for everyone.  There is no question why Italy is one of the top 10 honeymoon destinations.


South Africa

If adventure is what you seek, a great honeymoon destination is South Africa. The dollar is strong here, therefore your money stretches a bit further.  Cape Town has beautiful hotels and guesthouses and makes a great base to explore the mountains, coastline, history and adventure (cage diving with great whites) before setting out on your safari.



A romantic winter wonderland with ski-in/ski-out resorts and it’s stunning in the summer when the snow has melted showing the beautiful wildflower-clad mountains. It is an outdoorsy couple’s dream where you can hike, bike, ski, and hot tub.


Paris, France

Paris is the “City of Lights” but we think it should be called the “City of Love”. Culture, Architecture, Art, magnificent food and wine. To be at the Eiffel Tower at night offers some of the most incredible views of the city and is one of the most romantic places.


Washington State

Start your journey in the city of Seattle nestled between the Cascade Mountain range and the Puget Sound. Drink your favorite coffee in the birthplace of Starbuck’s Coffee, witness the fish throwing at the Public Market, and enjoy some fresh seafood at the pier. Head east to hike Mt. Rainier or North to view the tulip fields then hop on a ferry to the San Juan Islands. There, you will find quaint B&Bs, beaches, lilac fields, and catch a glimpse of the local whales.  Washington may not be one of the first places you think of for your honeymoon but with so much to do its easy to see why it is one of the top 10 honeymoon destinations!


Riviera Maya, Mexico

Beautiful beaches, all-inclusive resorts, Mayan Ruins, Cenote caves, non-motorized water sports, romantic catamaran cruises; you’ll find plenty of relaxation and activity.


Savannah, GA

The oldest city of GA holds charm in history, mansions turned B&Bs, culinary expertise, and a whole lot of culture. Walk along the waterfront listening to GA music, partake in a haunted tour before heading to the close by beaches.


Costa Rica

Do you prefer a rainforest for adventure or a beach for relaxing? You can have both in Costa Rica! From the wildlife to cave tubing to your favorite bar on the beach, Costa Rica will not disappoint.
