When thinking of a winter honeymoon you may instantly think of rain, very low temperatures and snow, but although at home it may be like that, in some parts of the world it’s summer which means high temperatures, beaches and sexy swimsuits!
I have put together my top five destinations for a perfect and unforgettable winter honeymoon, so take your pick and get packing!
Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate and abundance of public beaches make it a very popular destination for newlyweds. It offers perfect weather all year round but during the winter months, it has extra attractions making it an idealic honeymoon destination. Surf season starts in late October and runs through March and whales visit from late November to May.
It’s the most visited country in South America and its capital, Buenos Aires, the most visited city. Regarded as the “Paris of South America,” it offers elegant architecture, exquisite cuisine, a legendary nightlife, and fashionable shopping. Don’t forget to take some tango lessons whilst in this incredible country. The hottest months are Decemeber and January, when temperatures go up to 35 degrees.
Goa is an ideal setting for romance and relaxation offering multi-cuisine restaurants, clean and secluded beaches as well as excellent infrastructure and facilities. The temperatures during the European winter months are ideal, usually around 30 degrees. A 131-km long coastline means choices are aplenty. You can visit Anjuna for its lively flea market, Palolem for water sports and Calangute and Dona Paula for shopping, nightlife, food and drink.
Located on the north eastern coast of Central America, Belize is on of the hottest destinations during the cold months, its dry season is from November to late April. Here you can discover the Belize Barrier Reef and over 450 offshore Cayes (islands).
