Honeymoons are a big deal. And with all the choice in the world (literally), it can be tricky to pick a destination. There are tons of factors to take into account when planning your ideal holiday – activity levels, city or beach, long or short haul, and possibly the most important of all – the weather. It’s important to figure out where to go, when.
Your dream destination may not be such a brilliant place to visit in the deep midwinter, or the height of summer. Saying that, if you do have your heart set on a certain country and it doesn’t fit your timeframe, don’t let us stop you.
But let us help you out with our pick of the best honeymoon destinations to visit each month, starting with November.
It’s never really a bad time to go to South Africa, but November is the start of summer, so you can expect temperatures of around 22ºC in Cape Town, and 10 hours of beautiful sunshine. Spend your nights under the stars in a luxury tent, and your days looking for lions.
Is a brilliant choice for November. You’re pretty much guaranteed 30ºC and 7 hours of sunshine, and the dry season is just beginning. Trek through the rainforest, or relax on the beach, it’s up to you. The great food and low prices are a bonus.
Japan is beautiful in Autumn. The weather is sunny and mild – 17ºC and 5 hours of sunshine. Perfect for trips to the countryside and exploring the city. Why not do the whole Lost in Translation thing in Tokyo.
Is a good choice in November if you’re looking to go to the Caribbean, but don’t want to spend a fortune. It’s still low season for hotels at this time of year, but you’ll get great weather – 24ºC and 8 hours of sunshine. Be welcomed by the incredibly friendly locals, and spend your evenings drinking Cuba Libras.
If you prefer snow to sand, Canada is a good choice for the early ski season. Skiing all day and cosying in front of the fire by night – what could be more romantic.
