Whilst your wedding day may be one of the most special days of your life, the trip which you take afterwards can be one of the most exciting vacations which you will ever take. These days, people spare no expense when it comes to their honeymoon destinations and if you are planning a wedding, you will have no doubt turned your thoughts towards which luxurious destination you will decide to spend your honeymoon in. There are so many beautiful places around the world where you and your newly-wed partner can spend the first few weeks of your married life and we have whittled down the choices to what we consider to be the finest honeymoon destinations in the world.
Travel writer extraordinaire Mark Twain once wrote ‘Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius‘ and when you visit this stunning destination, you will instantly understand why Twain was so complimentary. The reason why this island is the perfect place for people on their honeymoon is because of its natural beauty, think clear waters and white beaches; the high level of luxury tourism that exists on the island from 5 star resorts to private rooms which sit above the ocean; and finally the level of seclusion which newly weds can find here. Of all of the people who go on a holiday to Mauritius, the large majority are honeymoon tourists who are looking for the kind of tranquility that can be found on this beautiful island.
Turks and Caicos
Paradise is arguably something which is in the eye of the beholder but most would agree that paradise appears much like the landscape of the Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean. The postcard-esque scenery of the Turks and Caicos includes turquoise waters with excellent diving spots, white, soft, talc-like beaches which in the main are largely unspoiled as well as vast amounts of coastal spots where you are unlikely to see a single soul. The level of luxury and isolation which you will find on these beautiful Caribbean islands is exactly why this is one of the best places in the world for you and your partner to start your married life.
Not everyone is after sun, sea and sand when it comes to their honeymoon and many would prefer to use this vacation as one of discovery. If that is the category that you fall into then why not consider Iceland as you honeymoon destination. Throughout the country you can find adventure with walking trips and kayak tours, you can discover nature through the ancient glaciers, natural hot springs and vast country parks and you can immerse yourself in a new culture in cities such as Reykjavik. Iceland is truly a breathtaking country, one where you can swim in the crack between two continents, watch the northern lights from an igloo and see the very best of the country on a skidoo. If adventure is how you want to spend your initial weeks as a married couple, then Iceland should be somewhere that you are seriously considering.
