Have you thought of where to go for your honeymoon yet? Though some opt for adventuremoons, many people are looking for nothing but romance and R&R in the warm embrace of Paradise. What better way to spend time together decompressing after the big day than on a tropical island, relaxing on a beach? With so many to choose from, we helped you narrow it down to the top three honeymoon beaches.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Bora Bora is known for its dazzling tortoise lagoon ringed by a coral reef. This area is great for those couples that crave for total (or semi) seclusion. The Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa offers glass bottom coffee tables in your overwater bungalow giving you a glimpse of the fantastic view of Nemo’s world. You can spoil yourselves with side-by-side Polynesian massages at the hotel’s deep ocean spa or if you’re feeling a little adventurous, go out on snorkeling excursions to explore the undersea world.
Santorini is the typical honeymoon spot for the eons, but it’s still on of the top beach honeymoon locations. It is definitely busier than the Carribbean, but its multi-colored beaches (red and black!), lavish accommodations, delicious Greek eats, the cobblestone and shop-filled village of Fira, and the views over the caldera when the sun sets definitely make up for it. Go take a swim in the sea or sunbathe on one of the molten-dyed beaches to watch the sunset from the cliffs of Oia. Or you can bathe in the hot springs surrounding the Kameni. To channel the local history, set sail on the clear blue-caldera where the ancient city of Atlantis was said to have stood.
Paradise Island, Bahamas
Bahamas is probably the closest way to paradise. Stay at the beautiful Atlantis resort where you can chose from the many water-filled activities and beaches that they offer there. You and your partner can grab a lounge chair and order mimosas near the beach area or you can have some fun at the water park they offer. At night, you can stroll by the Marina Village just outside of the resort for some retail therapy or stop by the straw market for some goodies from local Bahamian artisans.
