Honeymoons. Honeymooning. Honeymooners.
Let’s talk about some of the most popular honeymoon spots and when is the best time to visit.
Found in the south Pacific Ocean, Fiji is often referred to as one place, however is actually made up of over 300 different islands. Some popular Fijian islands include Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and The Mamanuca Islands. The epitome of tropical, visitors can expect incredible rainforest areas, white sandy beaches and blue seas with spectacular coral reefs.
Why do couples choose Fiji?
Fiji is without a doubt, pure paradise and ideal for post-wedding slow living.
Known as the soft coral capital of the world, Fiji’s waters are warm and clear, and teeming with rainbow coloured fish and an incredible array of other sea creatures. The ideal place to snorkel or learn how to scuba dive. It is unsurprising that a large part of the waters in Fiji are part of a marine nature reserve.
A very warm Fijian welcome is always waiting, alongside great food and luxurious accommodation options. Couples can indulge in local and cultural customs such as the traditional Kava ceremony. Choose from luxury resorts or secluded, idyllic private islands such Turtle Island. Some resorts have also recently introduced villas similar to the over-water bungalows of The Maldives.
Oh, and have we mentioned the floating cocktail bars – Seventh Heaven and Cloud 9?
Fiji is a particularly handy destination if you’re living in the southern hemisphere, or heading that way for a longer trip – why not enjoy a slice of paradise.
But, when is the best time to visit?
