Are you getting married in 2019? As beautiful as your wedding will be, you’re probably looking forward to the honeymoon even more!
The honeymoon is your chance to have a really indulgent vacation, and to relax after months of planning a wedding. Check out this list of honeymoon destinations for 2019. We’ve included some exciting and exotic options, as well as a surprise or two closer to home.
If you’re looking for an exotic experience, look no further than the stunning metropolis of Dubai. Situated in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is one of the most visually breathtaking cities in the world.
In Dubai, you’ll find world-class shopping, sky-scraping architecture (including the Burj Khalifa), and delectable dining. Take a desert safari, enjoy the beaches, and try some deep-sea fishing. With the amazing blend of ultra-modern architecture and Moorish decor, you’ll feel as if you’re living in an Arabian fantasy.
If you’re into stunning views, windswept beaches, and crisp weather, Alaska could be the perfect destination for you and your partner. The area is teeming with wildlife that you can see in person— humpback whales, bears, bald eagles, puffins, and more.
Whether you cruise, hike, or drive, Alaska is a once in a lifetime experience with incredible views and plenty of delicious dining options.
The Caribbean islands have been popular with honeymooners and vacationers for decades, and 2019 is no different. However, if you’re looking for something a little more dramatic, try the island of Martinique.
Along with its gorgeous beaches, Martinique has a volcano that’s still warm— and it combines West Indian and French cuisine and music in a unique way.
Also, located in the Caribbean, St. Lucia holds top ratings for its luxury suites, privacy, and beauty. If you’re looking for something a bit quieter than the popular U.S. Virgin Islands, try the British Virgin Islands, including Anegada, Tortola, or Virgin Gorda.
The Amalfi Coast
At night, the Amalfi Coast of Italy glitters with golden lighted windows, its pale-colored buildings piled up against the hillside. Stroll those narrow village streets, appreciate the gorgeous Italian architecture, and enjoy the brilliant blue water and stretches of sand. There’s a mixture of Old World charm and modern luxury here that appeals to many honeymooning couples.
All along the coast of Mexico, you’ll find hotels and resorts that are well worth a visit; but if you’re looking for adventure off the beaten path, explore some of the inland destinations.
Check out vibrant Merida, colorful Guanajuato, and mountainous Oaxaca if you want to experience the rich, romantic culture of inland Mexico. Enjoy beautifully detailed colonial architecture, pristine mountain views, and mysterious ancient ruins while you stay at charming hotels and dine on Mexico’s best cuisine.
Not only is Thailand home to incredibly delicious food, it also offers beaches rimmed with beautiful palms. Discover nightclubs and temples, ancient forests and modern breweries!
Plus, if you’re up for trying something new, Thailand features crystal-clear water that is perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving.
If you’d rather stay within the borders of the U.S.A., South Carolina is home to long stretches of warm southern sand and blue waves. Visit Myrtle Beach, which offers plenty of dining, golf, beachside fun, and nightlife; or tour historic Charleston, which boasts colorful streets, thriving markets, and romantic plantations in addition to pleasant beaches.
In South Carolina’s upstate, you’ll find the city of Greenville, quickly become a destination for foodies and fun-loving couples. The city is known for the river and waterfalls running right through downtown, as well as for a lively music scene and plenty of upscale drink and dining options.
From California to Florida, and from Ireland to Japan, the world is full of exciting options for your honeymoon! Talk it over with your special someone and choose a 2019 honeymoon destination that appeals to you both. Remember, you can always save the other destinations for future vacations together!
