Spring is a beautiful time of year to get married. New beginnings are everywhere to be seen and what’s more, some of the finest places on earth are in their prime during Spring and perfect for your honeymoon. Top of our list for springtime honeymoon locations are:
If you are looking for warm sunny weather, laidback beaches and heaps of history, look no further than a honeymoon in Mexico. The beaches here come in all shapes and sizes, from the wild and rugged on the western Pacific coast to pristine white sandy beaches lapped by the turquoise Caribbean sea on the Yucatan Peninsula, close to ancient Mayan sites.
A delightfully short flight away, Andalucia in Southern Spain has idyllic weather throughout springtime. Home to Granada, Seville and Cordoba, as well as many tiny rural stone villages and the spectacular Sierra Nevada, there’s plenty to explore here. The landscapes range from rolling orchards and winelands to sandy beaches, with everything from horse riding and flamenco dancing to wine tasting and relaxing on the beach on offer.
3. Maldives and Sri Lanka
For a mixture of fly-and-flop and culture, Sri Lanka and the Maldives is a perfect combo. Sri Lanka’s UNESCO site of the rock fortress of Sigiriya and the holy city of Kandy are well worth exploring, along with the verdant highlands and tea plantations. From here, direct flights to Malé bring you to the paradise islands that are the Maldives.
For the more active and daring couples, Bhutan offers adventures galore. The spectacular landscapes range from soaring mountains with precariously perched monasteries to undulating meadows of wild flowers. Bhutan make for great cycling, trekking, kayaking, rafting and definitely not a moment of boredom!
5. South Africa & Mozambique
Another fantastic honeymoon duo is South Africa and Mozambique. Both countries offer a huge amount to do. Top of the list for honeymoons in South Africa is wine tasting in the rolling vineyards of the Winelands and visiting its game reserves, which have some amazing lodges to stay in. Mozambique, by comparison, has breath-taking wilderness and animals galore - perfect for safaris - plus one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world for a bit of R&R.
