5. St. Lucia
Number 5, best beaches for honeymoon in the world is St. Lucia. With numerous couples resorts, chalky-white sands and dramatic landscapes, St. Lucia is a no-brainer honeymoon spot. There is little on this isle to disturb your fun in the sun, except maybe a good night’s sleep.
Lush, unspoiled St. Lucia has a growing fan base. Some of its vacationers are music lovers, letting loose at the springtime St. Lucia Jazz Festival (which has previously featured headlining acts like Ne-Yo, Corinne Bailey Rae, Kenny G and the late Amy Winehouse). Others are honeymooners, unwinding on one of the island’s chalky beaches or holing up in one of the isolated couples’ resorts. Still other patrons are adrenalin junkies, testing their limits climbing the Pitons or zip lining through the Chassin region’s rain forest.
But what if none of these archetypes is you? Don’t worry : St. Lucia refuses to be pigeonholed as any “type” of Caribbean vacation. Plus you also don’t have to spend a lot of money (its reputation as a luxurious hideout is only somewhat warranted). To discover some of the island’s indescribable charms you’ll have to visit for yourself. Start your mornings basking in an orange-tinted Soufrière sunrise; round out your evenings at an evening “jump-up” (or dance party) along Gros Islet. We’ll wait to hear what you think.
Next, best beaches for honeymoon in the world is Fiji. Perfect for couples that… don’t mind getting away from it all (there are no in-room TVs or phones at Wakaya Club, but there is high-speed Internet).
The first thing you’ll realize about Fiji is the fact that the locals are incredibly friendly—shouts of “Bula!” (hello) are directed at just about everyone. Located in Melanesia, the Republic of Fiji sits in the South Pacific Ocean, more than 2,100 miles from Tahiti and midway between Tonga and Vanuatu. Since the Fijian islands were formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago, you’ll find rugged mountains blanketed with lush forests on many islands. The beaches are perfect golden crescents and many islands boast world-class snorkeling and diving. Unlike other island chains, Fiji has a number of championship golf courses. These islands offer a terrific mix of activities for honeymooners of any age.
Where to Stay : David and Jill Gilmour, the owners of eco-friendly Wakaya Club & Spa in Fiji, are fond of saying that the more the world changes, the more we gravitate to places that don’t—and that’s certainly true of the guests who seek out this all-inclusive private island resort. Ten 1,650-square-foot waterfront bures (cottages) encompass the island. Each is decorated with Tibetan rugs and Asian accents. The island, protected by a coral reef, offers a beautiful blue lagoon and white sand beach that is buffeted by breathtaking cliffs. This laid-back destination is best for couples that like to hike or go on nature walks, enjoy beach picnics, and play golf, tennis, or croquet.
