It probably feels like a whirlwind of decision making – there are many things you now have to decide ahead of your big day. Among these is the key decision about where to go for your honeymoon, one of the most important holidays you’ll ever take.

Here’s Our Quick Overview of Some of the Best Honeymoon For Destinations 2020

Maldives

There’s good reason why the Maldives are so popular with honeymooners. Each resort is based on its own island, so these picture-perfect isles offer seclusion and privacy. Think crystal-clear lagoons, bone-white sand, stunning coral reefs, palm-lined stretches of sand and dining under the stars. And, since it’s a once-in-a-lifetime holiday, why not upgrade to a luxury stilted villa with direct ocean access?

And, if you can tear yourself away from that bone-white beach, try snorkelling or diving or a range of other water-based activities, enjoy an indulgent spa treatment, go on a sunset cruise or have a picnic on an uninhabited island.

The twist is stopping off somewhere like Rome or Dubai en route. Break up the journey and include a second, fascinating destination in your honeymoon. Rome is, after all, impossibly romantic, while Dubai offers more beach time and guaranteed sunshine, alongside the guaranteed thrill of the glitz and glamour of a fast-paced, cosmopolitan city.

After a hectic few months of wedding planning, if all you want to do is flop on a beach, we can’t say we blame you. And Zanzibar has some of the most incredible you’ll find anywhere, and this paradise island allows you to be as active or as relaxed as you wish. As well as the beach, there are plenty of activities on offer, and you could immerse yourself in the sensory experience of a spice tour or visit Zanzibar’s fascinating Stone Town, a UNESCO heritage site.

The other leg of your holiday could be an exciting Kenyan safari. The Masai Mara, for example, is one of the world’s ultimate safari destinations, well known for both its big cats and other game species – tick off the ‘big five’! Then there’s the yearly wildebeest migration, too. You’ll be going on two mesmerising game drives a day and if you’re feeling really adventurous, consider a breathtaking, once-in-a-lifetime balloon ride over the plains?

Finally, if you thought a safari meant roughing it, think again. There’s no end of luxury accommodation to choose from, including tents so glamorous and comfortable it barely counts as camping!

Boracay, Philippines

Measuring barely four square miles, the central Philippines island of Boracay is a true paradise for honeymooners. Its beaches are consistently rated as amongst the best in the world by luxury travel industry magazines, with powdery soft sand and clear turquoise waters.

What’s more, it was reopened last year having been temporarily closed in a bid to halt over-development. That means its ‘party island’ image has been definitely toned down, making the place much more chilled and therefore even more ideal for honeymooners.

When not stretching out and catching the sunshine, you can island hop to nearby beaches, sip on a cocktail or fruit shake at a poolside bar, enjoy an indulgent spa treatment, take in the sunset or actually (literally!) sail off into one on a paraw or traditional boat. Watersports were temporarily banned to minimise the impact of tourism on the island, but are now available again, and there are plenty to choose from. You’ll also find plenty of other things to do in your own private piece of paradise – how about riding a helicopter over the beach or taking a trek on horseback?

With award-winning restaurants and superb, high-end accommodation, Boracay really is a dream destination.
