From all of us here at DoubleDouble, Happy New Year! 2017 was definitely a blast, but it’s time to bring in the new year with some gusto, and maybe an extra dollar or two out of your wallet.
Congratulations to all our 2018 newlyweds! This post is especially for you; we’re about 6 months away from wedding season! While getting those bodies picture ready and planning a wedding is a war on its own, we would like to bring your attention to one of the more desirable wedding-prep activities you will need to plan out: honeymoons.
After all the months of stress of planning and hosting a wedding, the honeymoon is a chance for the newly weds to get away from the problems of daily life and just spend some genuine time with one another. Its also easier to get a honeymoon wrong than you would think; and a bad honeymoon after the wedding can sow the seeds for an ill marriage when the couple goes back to work.
The DoubleDouble crew would hate to see all this love go to waste! We’ve devised list of 5 of the most desirable honeymoon getaways around the world, so that you can have the trip of your dreams!
It would be surprising if the island of Fiji didn’t make this list; with its warm, crystal clear water and magnificent coral reefs, anyone would be more than lucky to have an extended stay on this beautiful island. There’s plenty to do, so you’ll never be bored in Fiji; and if you do get bored, just relax! You’re in Fiji anyways.
4. St. Lucia
Home to the stunning volcano Mount Soufriere, St. Lucia is home to stunning wildlife and geologic formations. If the scenery isn’t enough to sell you, check out the transparent waters of Ansa Chastanet; a highly rated honeymoon snorkeling activity. With a vibrant culture, there is always plenty to do, whether you want to follow the tourist path or not.
3. Bora Bora
Another household name just like Fiji, Bora Bora gets its popularity from the island’s stunning scenery. However, unlike Fiji with its plethora of things to do, the main activity in Bora Bora is relaxation. Grab a drink and lay back! Those who love the outdoors will be stunned by the photo opportunities that pop up seemingly every step. A destination to research!
Although Tahiti is not as much of a household name as Fiji or Bora Bora, it deserves this spot on the list because of the out of the worldly imagery that the island possesses. Tahiti is beautiful, with stunning sunsets over perfect island seas. Surfers, listen up! Tahiti is a huge surfing destination, as it is popular with both the locals and tourists that come from all over to shred the island’s fabled swells. Along with the activities hosted by the other places on this list, Tahiti is home to the Fautaua Waterfall, one of the most desirable waterfalls to see in the world.
Striking the top of the list of hotspot honeymoons is a place much different than the rest; Tuscany. Tuscany is home to stunning rural landscapes and of old European life. However, it is the culture of Tuscany that drives so many pairs of lovers to come visit. The place is known for its extravagant, exotic, but expensive wine. It is a pastime for many of the locals to be wine aficionados, which is oftentimes coupled with nice cheese and bread. To sip some fine wine and enjoy the beauty of Europe is a much-desired couple activity, which partially explains why Tuscany is such a popular honeymoon destination. There is so much to do, give it a search!
There are so many potential honeymoon destinations that this list only brinks the surface. However, if you aren’t feeling spontaneous, just choose one of these destinations! I would be surprised if you found a way not to enjoy yourself. Happy New Year!
