Break the mold
It’s all too easy to plan for popular destinations of the past, but your honeymoon is also a great opportunity to travel somewhere neither of you has ever been – nor are likely to go again. When we asked Milla, our Iceland travel expert, why she chose French Polynesia for her honeymoon, she told us: “We are both very well-traveled and it was one of the only places neither of us had been to. It’s also so far away and a little trickier to get to that we figured we would probably not be able to go ever again, so it will remain even more special to us.”
Adventure away from the beach
Whilst we recognize that beach destinations are a common pick for honeymooners, Carolyn encourages you to consider something a little bit different, mixing beaches with another destination. “People get so hung up on beach destinations, but ironically these destinations tend to be very easy to do with kids – I would urge honeymooners to consider more intrepid destinations like Cambodia, Australia or South Africa – places that are harder to bring small children to in the future, that also offer beach with adventure.” After all, your honeymoon is perfect for ticking off those bucket-list destinations.
The perfect couple
Fear not, just because your new husband prefers hiking through the hills whilst you’d rather sip cocktails by the pool, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a honeymoon destination to suit you both. At Black Tomato, some of our favorite honeymoons involve a mix of destinations and experiences, so we know which combinations work well together. Why not opt for a safari honeymoon where you can start off with a bit of adventure before enjoying some downtime at the beach later? It’s the best of both worlds.
