Romantic Honeymoon Ideas

If you’re confused about how best to enjoy your romantic vacation, check out a few ideas mentioned here.

Romantic beaches

If you’re planning a beach vacation, you may consider visiting the Shell Beach located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The best way to enjoy the beauty of the beach is to stay in a resort situated close to the beach. The Dolphin Bay Resort is one such place where you’ll find good facilities for accommodation. The rooms are spacious and offer an excellent view of the sea and its beach. The resort’s restaurant, Lido provides one of the best cuisines available anywhere along the California Coast. So, enjoy your vacation on the beach by relaxing under the sun. If you’d like to rejuvenate yourself, go for a body massage treatment at the resort’s spa.

Another exotic beach location is Maui in Hawaii. It’s one of the most romantic vacation getaways you can visit. You should visit Kapalua, which is one of the best resort areas.

There are also many resorts in the Caribbean that have beautiful beaches.  How about Aruba, St. Lucia or Punta Cana? And we would be remiss not to mention the romantic islands of Mykonos and Santorini in Greece.

Desert travel

If you want to try out something different, you may go on a desert vacation after your marriage. The Sonora Desert in Arizona is one of the popular desert areas you can visit during your honeymoon travel. Whether it’s the camel trek, the desert sunset or the dry sand dunes, you’ll find them all here.

While you visit the Sonora desert, you may stay at the Rancho De La Osa located on the southwestern part of Tucson, Arizona. The resort has spacious rooms with vintage furniture and Mexican antiques, thus giving you a look and feel of the ancient culture and heritage. The resort rooms offer a fantastic view of the mountains. The cuisine offered here is a mix of Mexican, Native American and Spanish food. The best thing is that you can indulge in many activities here. Such activities include nature walks, horseback riding, bird watching and guided hikes, etc.

You can also visit deserts in Morocco, Egypt or Dubai if you are looking for something more exotic.

Cruise vacation

Going on cruise honeymoon vacations is something that you’ll cherish forever. Cruises offer great facilities in terms of accommodation, food and entertainment. You may qualify for special packages offered to newly married couples. You may also get to explore 2-3 port cities during your honeymoon.  There are plenty of things to explore and enjoy during a cruise vacation.

You can go on a European cruise vacation, which will enable you to explore romantic places like Venice, Paris and Florence. If you cruise along the east Mediterranean, you’ll be able to visit Athens and Turkey, and get an idea about their history and culture.

Exciting cruise vacations are offered by cruiselines departing from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and even Baltimore. These cruises offer various packages including short excursions for you to enjoy sailing, rafting, exploring wildlife, windsurfing, etc.  Some of the major cruiselines are Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Holland America and NCL.

If you choose the southern Caribbean cruise, you can visit Barbados, Aruba and Kitts.  If you choose the eastern Caribbean you can visit St. Croix and Key West. The southwest beaches in Barbados and the historic buildings in St. Croix are worth visiting. Barbados is a busy place with a lot of shops, discos and pubs. St. Croix, Cayman Islands and Bermuda give you the opportunity to indulge in recreational activities like snorkeling and diving. Apart from visiting these places, you’ll enjoy shopping, eating out and exploring the nightlife as well.

Safari trip

If you’re looking for a Safari vacation, visit South Africa or Botswana in Africa. How about Victoria Falls? The majesty of the Victoria Falls and the wildlife make this area one of the most popular safari destinations. All you need to do is fly to Johannesburg and reach Botswana from there. Consider staying in a tented room at a camp along the bank of the Linyanti Marshes. Enjoy walking along the nearby bushes and go on a game drive in the morning and the evening.

Next, board an aircraft and reach Shinde Camp on an island in the Okavango Delta. This is where you can go riding on safari vehicles to track a variety of animals. You can also go canoeing along the river silently. Then you can stay at Deception Valley Lodge in the Kalahari Desert. The magical landscape of the desert is something you’d love exploring. Enjoy your stay in the desert and track the Kalahari lion, leopard, giraffe and a variety of animals.  See the Big Five!

There are also many romantic safari camps in Kruger Park in South Africa.
