World’s Best Honeymoon Travel Destinations

Here we are providing the best honey moon travel destinations around the world.

New Zealand

If you enjoy outdoor adventures paired with refined luxury, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more diverse honeymoon destination. There are gorgeous beaches for swimming and sunbathing, freshwater lakes for fishing, fast-moving rivers for rafting, breathtaking fjords to explore and mountains to climb. There’s even a region of active volcanoes. The country — made up of the North and South islands as well as a few smaller outer islands — may not be as populated as nearby Australia, but it’s well-developed and easy to get around by car.

Cancun, Mexico

Honeymooners have been going to Cancun on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula for decades to enjoy the soft, white-sand beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, jungle rain forests, excellent regional cuisine and well-priced, all-inclusive resorts. Cancun was developed exclusively for tourism, so you won’t have an authentic Mexican experience unless you venture further afield. But if you’re looking for pools with swim-up bars, festive nightclubs, excellent shopping, spa treatments and activities like golf, jeep adventures and parasailing, Cancun fits your bill.

Maldives

This archipelago of dozens of atolls in the Indian Ocean is one of the last unspoiled island getaways in the world. It’s hard to get there, but the effort is rewarded with picture-perfect sunsets, wide beaches and some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. This is the place to interact with whale sharks, manta rays, reef sharks, sea turtles and an array of colorful fish and sea creatures. Resorts are confined to their own islands so you won’t flit from place to place after you arrive. Almost all of the resorts are firmly in the “luxury” category. This is the place to book a beach villa or overwater bungalow.

Bali

Bali is the best-known island of the 17,500 that make up Indonesia’s archipelago. While the majority of the country is Muslim, Bali is a sliver of Hindu culture and art. Spirituality is ingrained in the population, and you’ll see offerings of incense, flowers and rice in front of just about every temple, home, restaurant or shop. Just south of the equator, Bali is always warm, ranging from the high 60s to the low 90s. There are several tourist districts. In South Bali you’ll find Kuta and the Bukit Peninsula (both terrific surf spots), Jimbaran, Legian, Nusa Dua, Sansur and Seminyak. When honeymooning in Central Bali, look to the artist community of Ubud, which is also home to beautiful rice terraces and the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary.

Thailand

A perfect multiweek honeymoon to Thailand should include time in Bangkok, the nation’s capital, Chiang Mai and/or Chiang Rai (gateway to the Golden Triangle) in the north, and one of the island getaways. That way, you’ll get a cosmopolitan city with fantastic food and culture plus scenic mountains, lush jungles and idyllic beaches.

Belize

Located in Central America, Belize is an incredibly compelling honeymoon destination for three simple reasons: its close proximity to the United States (a two-hour flight from Miami), its weather (around 84 degrees daily year-round), and the 190-mile-long Belize Barrier Reef, which is easily accessible along the coast and a wildly popular spot for snorkeling and scuba trips, fishing excursions and romantic sunset cruises. Belize attracts a variety of honeymooners, from nature lovers, history buffs and diving fanatics to zip-liners, cave (river) tubers and those who simply prefer to sit on the beach at a resort with drink in hand.
