7. St. Lucia
Number 7, best places for honeymoon in the world is St. Lucia. The jewel of the Southern Caribbean, St. Lucia, has been a popular honeymoon destination for many years. There are gorgeous palm-fringed beaches, rainforest, the majestic Piton Mountains, and locals that appreciate the tourists who visit their little piece of paradise. St. Lucia is safe so you won’t be confined behind the high walls of your resort. Get out there and explore. Try ATVing along hill trails or zip-lining above the treetops of the rainforest. Spend an afternoon hiking in the mountains, sea kayaking, or just relaxing on the beach. You can go horseback riding or take a dive tour.
Where to Stay : You’ll find guesthouses and villas here alongside all-inclusive resorts and luxury boutique-style hideaways. Calabash Cove on the northwest coast of the island is a good choice as is the family-owned Cap Maison and Ladera, which is situated on Soufriere Volcano and overlooks the Pitons and Caribbean Sea. Perfect for Couples Who : Want a refined beach resort vibe and the flexibility to travel beyond the walls of their resort.
Number 8, best places for honeymoon in the world is Tahiti. One trending honeymoon destination is Tahiti, which is home to the capital of French Polynesia: Papeete. Often, travelers search “Tahiti” when they are really looking for information about the entire chain of Society Islands that includes Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea, and Taha’a, among others. These islands—and the Polynesian culture—are intoxicating.
The history of how the indigenous tribes later populated Hawaii (traveling there by canoe) is fascinating. France proclaimed these islands its colony in 1880 and French is still the official language. The Polynesian and French cultures blended to create a unique, laidback ethos that nearly every visitor falls in love with. The islands themselves are lovely with perfect white sand beaches (often protected by coral reefs), amazing snorkeling and diving, and lush inlands that are punctuated by fragrant, flowering plants. The international airport is located on Tahiti and it’s worth staying there a few days to get your bearings, shop the outdoor market, and maybe even buy some Tahitian pearls.
Where to Stay : InterContinental has a long history in French Polynesia and offers the InterContinental Tahiti Resort, InterContinental Moorea Resort, and two options on Bora Bora: InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana and InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. Honeymooners often island hop between them. Start with a few nights in Tahiti and then take the ferry to nearby Moorea. You’ll then fly to Bora Bora, where you should make a point to stay in one of the overwater bungalows.
Perfect for Couples Who : Want to spend quality time with each other on a secluded beach. Tahiti made the overwater bungalow concept famous and you’ll find it so romantic to step off your bungalow’s deck right into the crystal clear waters where you can go swimming and snorkeling.
