One of the first experiences you’ll have as a married couple is that of your honeymoon
Maui, HawaiiNothing says romance quite like sand, surf, palm trees and tropical drinks. Maui has all of this and so much more. Marvel at the beauty of a waterfall, take a helicopter tour for a bird’s eye view of the island’s scenic volcanoes, or visit one of Maui’s “secret” beaches. Several resorts on the island offer couples-only specials, as the region is well-known for its romantic allure and appeal to honeymooning couples. Other places that may appeal to you in this area: Keauhou Bay, Waikiki Beach and Kauai.
Between the magical atmosphere, the Old World influence and, of course, the boats and waterways, Venice is known as one of the most romantic vacation destinations in the world. As a couple in love, you’ll feel right at home, and will find romance in the charming gondolas that will take you through the waterways. You’ll be right where the artistic action is, with art galleries and operas nearby, and the beachy island of Lido will be just a hop, skip and a jump away.
If you’re visiting Italy on your honeymoon, also consider visiting Florence and Rome.
