The weather is well and truly rubbish at the moment, so what better time to start thinking about your honeymoon plans than now. January is the time when everyone starts booking summer holidays, so why not choose January as the month you book your honeymoon and get something crossed off that wedding planning to do list. If you have been engaged a while you may have some idea of where you want to go or you may still be trying to decide. If you are newly engaged then you still may be looking at your options. Todays post is going to shed some light and give you some ideas you may not have considered, as our resident honeymoon expert Tom tells you about some of the up and coming Honeymoon Destinations.
If you want something utterly unique and inspired for your honeymoon experience, take a look at some of the best up and coming destinations to try in 2016. Here are 9 honeymoon destinations that will be incredible in 2016.
Now that U.S travel restrictions have been revoked, this Caribbean island makes the perfect final destination for honeymooners travelling through the U.S and Mexico, looking for a beach spot to complete their tour. Head to Cayo Largo del Sur for white sandy beaches, turtle watching and scuba diving experiences.
Forget the Côte d’Azur; in 2016 it’s all about Côte d’Or in Burgundy. This has to be one of the most romantic, underrated destinations in France and it’s ideal for romantics who want the best in food and wine. Be sure to spend a few days in Dijon to taste the exceptional local dishes; food connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts will fit right in.
Whilst independent travel is still not possible, you are now able to prearrange permits to travel in Tibet with a guide. If you and your other half have a real sense of adventure, Tibet could be the ultimate honeymoon destination in 2016. It’s off the beaten path and you’ll be blown away by the stunning mountain landscapes dotted with incredible monasteries.
Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil is known for its beautiful beaches and it’s even been nicknamed “Bride of the Sun”. So if you’re after a classic sun, sea and sand break – but with a difference – head to Brazil’s North Eastern state for something slightly exotic.
It’s considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world architecturally, and it’s most certainly one of the most underrated places in Europe. Beautiful and inviting all year round, it makes for one of the most romantic places for newlyweds.
Many of the Greek Islands are popular with holiday makers all year round but as the largest of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia never seems to feel too crowded, even during peak travel months. If you want all the perks of Greece without the crowds, Kefalonia is a fantastic honeymoon option that gives you the privacy that you and your beau desire. Hire a private villa like one of these beauties, or cozy up in a beautiful boutique hotel and enjoy the stunning surroundings that come with any Greek Island break.
For the ultimate city break, it’s impossible to ignore the up and coming destination of Reykjavik in Iceland. Enjoy the charming streets, bars and pubs of this elegant city whilst having easy access to tours of the surrounding volcanoes, national parks, waterfalls, lagoons and icebergs
This beautiful British island territory in the North Atlantic is set to get pretty busy in 2017 for America’s Cup. So take full advantage of this coming year and honeymoon in Bermuda; book your honeymoon in March / April for whale watching or in the summer months for beaches and festivals.
This luxury destination has been popular since 2014/15 and due to the good exchange rate, 2016 is still a smart time to travel over. If you want your honeymoon to be filled with sunshine, spas and unadulterated luxury, Los Cabos makes a great honeymoon destination.
