Honeymoons are special! They give you the chance to start your wedding on a foundation of love, and many couples take the opportunity to go somewhere new.

However, we’re glad that things are gradually getting better, and soon enough, couples will be able to go on honeymoon again. If you got married during the pandemic or you’re having your wedding soon and wondering if there are places you could go to for your honeymoon right now, the answer is yes

We’ve picked some of the best locations for your honeymoon and added some of the fantastic places you can see there.

Located in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean, if there’s one place where you should start your new life together as a couple, it’s the Bahamas. Breezy environs, a shimmering coastline, turquoise waters that glisten, and sun-kissed beaches with pristine sand wait to welcome you. You’ll undoubtedly get your overdose or romance and affection here. If you’re a couple who loves privacy and seclusion, the Bahamas is also ideal because it has many unexplored islands, and you’ll get privacy. You’ll also enjoy the nightlife if you’re a fun-loving couple.
The Bahamas is a beach paradise that enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine. There are three predominant seasons here, and they are spring, summer, and winter. Spring sees moderate weather and happens from March to April. Summer is when it is very hot, and it lasts from May to October. In June, there’s a possibility of thunderstorms and rain, but this is when honeymooners love to visit the Bahamas. Winter is a dry time and occurs from November to February. So, as you can see, its currently the best time to go to the Bahamas for your honeymoon.
Where to Go
If you’re in the Bahamas, there are some places that you should make sure you do not miss. And with more than 700 islands, you can bet you’ll have so many places to explore. However, you must make sure that you see Nassau Island, Paradise Island, and Grand Bahama Island. Nassau is the Capital Island, and you’ll love the luxurious lifestyle here. If you’ve ever heard of Atlantis in Dubai, then Paradise Island is very similar. Honeymooners love it here. The Grand Bahama has the best beaches in the Bahamas and many other attractions like reefs, mangrove swamps, and sprawling golf courses.
These hotels in the Bahamas will offer you some of the best stays while on your honeymoon:
Hilton Resorts World at Bimini
British Colonial Hilton Nassau
If you’re looking for a charming island in the Adriatic’s glittering waters with cobbled streets and picturesque shorelines, then Croatia is where to go. You and your partner will be spoiled here with the lovely beaches, lots of water sports, and historical landmarks that have passed the test of time. You’ll also enjoy the miles of vineyards and the delicious seafood. There’s a world of romance that awaits you in Croatia.
If you intend to go to Croatia during the best weather, anytime from May to October is when to go. June to August is usually high season with lots of festivals, but things may be a bit muted this year. You’ll, however, love all that Croatia has to offer when it comes to your honeymoon.
There are many places to go to in Croatia if you’re on a romantic trip. Dubrovnik is first on the list as it is one of Croatia’s most popular romantic destinations. You’ll love everything here from the sea to the architecture. Take a walk along this city’s lovely streets or relax as the sun sets on the sea coasts with wine glasses in hand. Hvar is another city that you should see while in Croatia. It’s a booming agricultural city with a charming landscape, olive groves, orchards and vineyards. You’ll also find lots of secluded beaches that will mesmerize you with their paradise qualities. Split is one best places in Croatia if you’re on your honeymoon. If you come to Croatia without going to Split, your trip is not complete. It is one of the largest cities, and you’ll have fun activities like Canoeing and Kayaking for fun. If you want to go fishing and pub crawling, we’d suggest Rovinj with its narrow pathways and brightly-coloured local houses. You’ll have quite the blast here. Last but not least, you must see Zagreb. Zagreb is an architectural paradise with a buzzing clubbing and café scene. It might be less known, but that’s where its charms lie. You’ll be able to get away from the crowds and have some lovely alone time together.
If Croatia is where you’re headed for your honeymoon, any of the following lovely places will do.
Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel
Heritage Villa Apolon
