Winter Honeymoon Destinations
Travel Counsellor Katharine Totoni rounds up her best destinations for honeymooning in Winter.
Whether you’re seeking tropical paradise, a Mediterranean escape combining romantic cities and sublime beaches or an multi centre action-packed adventure your experience and enjoyment of the destination you choose will very much depend on the time of year you visit.
We all want to make sure we visit destinations when the weather’s at it’s best so to give you an idea of destinations you should be considering at different times of the year I have put together my own recommendations starting with Winter Honeymoon destinations that will ensure you escape the cold winter and jet set off to some guaranteed sunshine!
January is the dry season in The Caribbean so makes this region of the world the number one choice for many Honeymooners.
Whether you’re seeking adventure, romance or relaxation Barbados has it all. Glorious beaches and stunning landscapes makes this lively island one of the most sought after. Luxury resorts, picturesque villages and beach life can all be enjoyed on the well known Platinum Coast.
Another popular choice is the compelling island of Jamaica. Blessed with golden sandy beaches Jamaica is also home to fascinating cultural sights, tropical jungle and natural wonders including the Luminous Lagoon where the water glows a luminous shade of blue. This natural phenomenon only occurs in three places around the world making it a truly once in a lifetime experience
Blending culture, adventure, relaxation and some of the best food you will ever taste, Sri Lanka will make for a Honeymoon you’ll talk about for the rest of your life. Combine temple visits with wildlife experiences, tea plantation and spice tours with days at the beach for a Honeymoon filled with variety. For the ultimate cultural experience you can even get involved in Buddhist rituals at the Maha Viharaya and relax with a local Buddhist Monk enjoying a calming meditation.
Thailand is the perfect option for those looking to sample a bit of everything; jungle, city and beach. It’s also the perfect destination to enjoy the most magical and unforgettable experience of a life time; spending the night in a jungle bubble observing Thailand’s majestic elephants located in the northern part of Thailand, Chiang Rai.
From here you can fly to the vibrant and dynamic city of Bangkok taking in all the sights, sounds and smells whilst paddling your way through the famous floating markets and marvelling at the incredible Emerald Buddda. Thailand is also home to some of the most unforgettable beaches in the world from the palm fringed beaches of Koh Samui to the pristine white sandy beaches of Khao Lak, Koh Yao Noi and Krabi.
Sunshine is guaranteed in Mexico in the month of March! Start your Honeymoon off on the long stretches of pristine, white sandy beaches enjoying a dip in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Combine beach life with a slice of fascinating history with a visit to the Mayan Ruins not forgetting of course, to indulge in some luxury pampering in the lush surroundings of your beachfront resort.
The Maldives has always ranked high on Honeymooner wish list and quite rightly so! Picture perfect islands, crystal clear lagoons, palm fringed beaches, dinner under the stars is just the beginning. Combined with seclusion and exclusivity The Maldives makes it a completely heaven on earth destination for all newly weds.
