A beach honeymoon is right for you if…
To you, the word 'honeymoon' is synonymous with warm weather and relaxation. You dream of escaping with your loved one to an island with blue water for miles where no one can reach you. If you crave some much-needed rest after the long process of planning a wedding, a beach escape is the perfect fit for you.
Our recommendation: Honeymoon to Fiji
Best accommodation: The Likuliku Hotel on the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands.
Recommended by Alison, one of our Australasia specialists, this beautiful resort is the only accommodation in Fiji with over water bures (wood and straw huts), and is only accessible by air or boat, ensuring a truly romantic getaway.
Recommended activities: Beach lounging and sunset walks for relaxation, and some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world.
Best beach tour: The Tabua Tour, which takes you along the beautiful Coral Coast where you’ll see picturesque valleys, a hidden waterfall in the rainforest and to the relaxing sands of Natandola Beach.

An adventure honeymoon is right for you if…
You and your soon-to-be spouse don‘t like to stay still for too long and love to explore. You‘re self-proclaimed 'outdoorsy' people, and you‘d rather hike up a picturesque mountain than lie on a beach all day.
Our recommendation: Honeymoon to Costa Rica
Easy to moderate: Arenal Volcano, where you’ll catch a glimpse of the stunning daily eruptions of molten lava.
Moderate to difficult: Cerro Chato, where on clear days you can witness fantastic views across the San Carlos Valley.

A safari honeymoon is right for you if…
The only thing you've dreamt of more than your wedding day is spotting the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) on an exotic safari. Step outside your natural habitat and see wildlife roam free on a tailor-made safari honeymoon.
Our recommendation: Honeymoon to Tanzania
Suggested wildlife tour: The famous Serengeti National Park, home to the annual migration and unparalleled wildlife spectacles from hyenas to elephants.
Recommended activity: Should the Serengeti be your park of choice, book a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the land for an unforgettable memory.
