Popular Honeymoon Destinations for 2018

Honeymoon-blog.jpg

The options are endless when it comes to finding the perfect honeymoon destination. Whether you're newlyweds who envision a once-in-a-lifetime adventure somewhere exotic, or are looking to relax and unwind on one of the world's most beautiful beaches, there's no wrong way to vacation with your partner. Take your pick from these romantic destinations and get ready for the trip of your dreams:

 

Zurich, Switzerland

According to Pinterest's 2018 wedding report, the most popular honeymoon destination is Zurich, Switzerland (pins for Switzerland are up 856% since 2017). The country has so much to offer, with its gorgeous mountain ranges and alpine scenery, charming towns and romantic waterfront spots. Zurich is the country's largest city and a vibrant cultural hub swarming with museums, cafes, and world-class cuisine, and a only a short hop away from Germany, Italy and France for the adventurous newlyweds.

The Maldives

Southwest of Sri Lanka, this small nation of islands is tailor-made for ocean-going couples. Snow-white sand and waters so blue that you’ll run out of shade names to describe them, the Maldives are home to some of planet's most beautiful beaches. With close to 100 resorts to choose from each encompassing its own private island, like Soneva Fushi, Cheval Blanc Randheli, The One & Only Reethi Rah and more, you’ll find a fit whether you’re five-star types or back-to-nature gurus. The warm waters are also home to a shocking array of sea life from jewel-like coral walls, bobbing sea turtles, and even massive gentle-giant whale sharks. Pack your snorkel–these sights are not to be missed (harpersbazaar.com).

Amalfi Coast, Italy

There are many reasons the Amalfi Coast continues to be at the top of honeymooners’ bucket list. It’s hard to picture more classically romantic a scene than Positano’s steep village streets, Moorish architecture, azure water and colorful loungers and umbrellas lining the dark sandy beaches. Glamour comes easy, especially at the five-star Le Sirenuse, where the formula for a sexy, sophisticated getaway is tried and true (brides.com).

Comporta, Portugal

Ibiza is so 2017. Instead, we suggest newlyweds turn their sights on this seaside getaway. Just an hour south of Lisbon, this cluster of villages is often referred to as “the Hamptons of Portugal,” with high profile names like Christian Louboutin, Jacques Grange, and Philippe Starck all boasting homes along the rolling dunes of this rice paddy-striped coast. Relaxed sophistication is the order of the day here, making it a perfect choice for honeymooners looking for a place where they can walk down the beach in bare feet and also choose from a full roster of vintage champagne (harpersbazaar.com). 

Comporta-3-Conde-Nast-Traveller-15Oct13-Alamy_b.jpg

Bali, Indonesia

Another destination that made Pinterest's 2018 wedding report was Bali, with a 145% spike in pins since last year. A honeymoon in Bali is pure magic. The Indonesian island—the only one in the huge country that’s Hindu—is a perfect place for passion. With a bit more of an exotic feel than the tropical islands closer to the US, Bali doesn’t only offer unspoiled beaches, surfing, snorkeling and massages, it’s full of culture, art, music, rice terraces and temples, many, many temples. Nature is celebrated here, and it’s easy to get into the spirit at lush, authentic properties such as Four Seasons Bali at Sayan and Uluwatu Surf Villas (brides.com).
