1. Saint Lucia
Saint Lucia is first on our list of Top 4 Honeymoon Destinations. It is located in the Eastern Caribbean, right between Martinique and Saint Vincent. It’s one of the region's most mountainous countries, with its most recognizable landmarks being the Twin Piton Mountains. It offers a romantic environment, a stunning backdrop for photos, and luxury accommodations. It’s perfect for a couple who is looking for a more laid-back honeymoon vibe. A must-see is the Pigeon Island National Landmark. This offers incredible views. Any photographer would love to capture the scene. For the best overall experience, you should plan a trip to Saint Lucia between December and May.
Bermuda is next on our list of Top 4 Honeymoon Destinations. Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, this British Island Territory is known for its iconic beaches, teal water, and lush landscape. These three factors make for a perfect honeymoon spot. In addition, it boasts pink sand beaches and blue water, plus a wealth of shipwrecks and coral reefs. Bermuda is the ideal location for a couple who is more adventurous and likes to snorkel and scuba dive. However, it is not warm all year round, so if you’re considering Bermuda for a honeymoon, May through October is the best time to come.
Bali comes in third on our list of Top 4 Honeymoon Destinations. It is the perfect location for newlyweds who enjoy water sports and scuba diving. Bali is also one of the most affordable honeymoon destinations but does require around 36 hours of travel from the US. While in Bali, try and embrace the culture. An important part of the culture is the traditional Barong dance. This is a piece of Balinese mythology, that includes ornate costumes, traditional dancing, and unique musical instruments. The best time to honeymoon in Bali is mid-September through May.
Next on our list is Seychelles, although many may not have heard of this location. It's located off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles islands consist of one hundred plus islands, though a small portion are inhabited. You’ll also find beautiful resorts plus cultural and outdoor activities that are unique. If you choose to honeymoon on the islands, it will definitely be an experience to remember. Because of the remote nature of the islands, it is more costly and will take longer to travel there and back. The best time to honeymoon here is from June through September.
