This tradition is the start of your life together as lifetime partners. There are a lot of resorts and hotels saying they are the perfect location for honeymooners, but some might not be the right match for you and your partner. Here’s a short list of the world’s top honeymoon destinations to help you narrow down your choices.


If you want fun under the sun

Seychelles is made up of groups of islands scattered east of the Indian Ocean, and just below the equator. The islands offer endless pristine beaches and bright aquamarine waters. The place is ideal for couples who want to soak under the sun, and swim on the beach. The other great thing about this paradise is that it is never too crowded. Honeymooners can definitely enjoy each other without having too many disturbances from other people.

Venice, Italy

If you want romance and old world charm

There is one word to describe this Venice, enchanting. No one can argue that this place is definitely one of the most romantic places on earth. Cliché as it is, you and your partner will both agree once you arrive at this place. Gondolas will carry you along the canals of the city for a romantic ride, and finish your date with a taste of the finest Venetian cuisine at restaurants near the Rialto Bridge. You can also visit the Doge’s Palace and Saint Mark’s Basilica to know more about the history of the city.

Santorini, Greece

If you want to visit archaeological sites

One of the best spots on earth to watch the sun set is probably in Santorini, Greece. It has an expansive stretch of black and red sand that honeymooners may find amazing. The island is known not only for its beaches, but also for its archaeological sites. Couples can visit the Ancient Akrotiri and Ancient Thira to view old Grecian homes that have been damaged due to a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago.
