Four Beach Honeymoon Destinations You Haven’t Considered Yet

By  | 

These out-of-the-ordinary romantic destinations prove a beach honeymoon doesn’t have to be a cliché. 

Cook Islands

The Cook Islands in the South Pacific Ocean offer a rare combination of flawless white sand beaches, mind-blowing scenery and incredible scuba diving and snorkelling, with none of the over-tourism you see on some paradise islands. And with temperatures consistently in the mid to late-twenties, the destination is perfect for a honeymoon all year round.

Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa offers an intimate collection of only 27 luxury beachfront bungalows each with private sundeck. Prices and availability upon request.

One of Asia’s most diverse and inspiring countries, Malaysia manages to remain both developed and exotic. Half of the country sits on the East Asian peninsular, south of Thailand and north of Indonesia. The second part constitutes around a third of the island of Borneo, alongside Indonesia and tiny Brunei. 

Located on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the Tanjong Jara sits along the golden sands of Tanjong Jara Beach, shaded by gently swaying palms and designed to replicate the sophistication of a 17th century Malay palace. 7 nights’ B&B including flights and transfers, from €1,299pp.

An enticing destination that sits just off the coast of Tanzania, the archipelago of Zanzibar has retained a classic charm and culture. What really makes this location alluring is the tranquil vibe that practically hums from every resort – it’s completely addictive. Lounge on the beaches as you look out to cerulean seas, wander the markets selling locally caught seafood, or explore the native wildlife that roam the landscape such as the indigenous Red Colobus monkey.

Sitting on the breath-taking South West coast of Zanzibar on a mile-long powdery white sandy beach, The Residence is an incredibly luxurious and stylish property. Luxuriously appointed private villas benefit from their own private pool and a personal butler. 7 nights’ half-board, including flights and transfers, from €1,829pp.

St Kitts and its sister island Nevis make up a lovely nation roughly equidistant between Puerto Rico and Barbados. Visit these small Caribbean islands and you’ll immediately be captivated by their unspoiled utopia, with sweeping views of sugar cane fields, a plethora of colourful wildlife, striking dormant volcanoes and gorgeous, soft sands.

Just steps away from the sugary sands of Pinney’s Beach, the Four Seasons Resort Nevis boasts sensational views of Nevis Peak and St Kitts. 12 charming plantation-style two-storey cottages are home to gorgeous rooms and suites, all adopting a youthful feel with their colourful and contemporary décor. Almost all of the cottages look out onto the ocean. 7 nights’ room only from €1,989pp. Includes flights and transfers.
