For those planning their post-nuptial travels to Europe, here are some of the best European islands and Europe travel packages for honeymooning.

Majorca, Spain

Majorca’s intoxicating beauty has long attracted couples looking for a romantic getaway, making it a perfect destination for a honeymoon. It has all the must-haves that honeymooners seek – stunning Mediterranean waters, luxury hotels, and all manner of water sports activities. Then there’s also an epic line-up of nightclubs whenever you feel like going for after-hours revelry with your new spouse.

In between romantic beach strolls and all-night partying, couples can trek into the Serra de Tramuntana Mountain, visit historic sites like the Santuari de Lluc and the Roman ruins of Pollentia, or go birdwatching at the wetlands of S’Albufera. For wine connoisseurs, a visit to the Mallorcan wine country is a must. The region’s tall mountain peaks, a large extension of flat lands, and proximity of vineyards to the sea are some of the main factors why the Mallorcan wines are of excellent quality.

Make your honeymoon even more romantic by staying in a romantic Majorca holiday rental with a hot tub. As a popular destination for a honeymoon, you’ll find plenty of accommodation options in Majorca. But if you want to enjoy some privacy as you celebrate your life as newlyweds, a holiday rental is your best bet.

Corsica, France

With its vibrant and cosmopolitan culture depicting the love affair between French and Italian influences, Corsica exudes romance, a perfect destination for loved up couples on honeymoon. The island’s natural beauty, consisting of misty lavender mountains, irresistible sandy beaches, soft rolling hills, and historic cobblestone streets, creates a perfect setting for a honeymoon, regardless of the season.

Corsica is perfectly suited for couples who want to enjoy some peace and quiet as they celebrate their love for one another. The locals are passionately devoted to warding off excessive mass tourism, giving you plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors, especially along the breathtakingly stunning Route de Bavella. To feel the island’s rich sense of history, explore the ancient citadels of Bonifacio and Calvi, or visit the Governors’ Palace, which houses the Bastia History Museum.

Corsica also has its share of beautiful beaches. Head to Arinella Beach, a large sandy beach where you can enjoy some fun water sports activities. Meanwhile, the Beach of the Lido de la Marana, which sits right next to Arinella, is also worth checking out.

Korčula, Croatia

Korcula is a stunning island that oozes romance, so it comes as no surprise why it’s becoming a popular destination for a honeymoon in Croatia. Surrounded by stunning landscape scenery, the island is conveniently located halfway between Split and Dubrovnik.

If you’re feeling more energetic and want to do something adventurous, there are many ways to entertain yourself. Go hiking and explore Lumbarda village, go on a wine tasting tour, or enjoy a scenic bike ride to the village past olive groves and vineyards. Better yet, experience Korcula from the sea by taking a self-guided kayaking tour around the islands.

Paros, Greece

While it may not be as popular as Santorini or Mykonos, Paros is a stunning island in the Cyclades that can make for a perfect destination for a honeymoon. Wrapped in vast beauty and sculpted in marble, the island offers many attractions, luxury hotels, beaches, good food, and breathtaking views.

With its excellent climate all year round and wealth of attractions, Malta is a paradise for honeymooners. You’ll be treated to a rich history, sublime architecture, and stunning scenery. But with so much on offer, where should you go to enjoy a honeymoon in Malta?

St Julian’s is where all the happening is. This trendy area is set along the east coast and used to be a fishing village, transformed into the country’s entertainment capital.
