Tips Planning Beach Honeymoon

A beach honeymoon is a dream come true for many couples. The sun, the sand, and the beautiful sunset are the perfect backdrop to the beginning of this new chapter in your lives together.

Like any trip, your honeymoon requires avid planning to avoid any unforeseen events or surprises, so here are 6 tips that'll help you make that first getaway as spouses unforgettable.


#1 Choose the Right Destination

Choosing the right destination is essential for the success of your beach honeymoon. Take into account your budget, the time of year, and your favorite activities when choosing where you go. 

Some of the world's top beach honeymoon locations include Hawaii, Bali, Maldives, Phuket, and the Caribbean. Do your research and choose whichever place best suits your preferences.

In Mexico, destinations like Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, and the Riviera Maya region are like paradise for honeymooners, offering it all: luxury resorts with award-winning spas, beautiful landscapes, a vibrant culinary and entertainment scene, shopping, ecotourism, and many more adventures.


#2 Book in Advance

It's essential that you book your honeymoon well in advance to avoid disappointment.

The most popular beach destinations tend to fill up quickly, especially in high season. Booking well in advance will allow you to secure better prices, reserve the accommodation and activities you want, and avoid any last-minute surprises.

#3 Pick Where You'll Stay

Choosing accommodation with honeymoon packages can make a big difference, especially if it's in a beach destination.

Look for a hotel or resort that has a special offer for newlyweds, including exclusive services such as couples' spa treatments or champagne and flowers in the room, just to name a few.

Consider whether you prefer a private villa or a luxury resort, and make sure the accommodation is in a location that you and your partner will enjoy the most.


#4 Plan Your Activities

Although relaxing on the beach is surely one of the main activities you'll do during your honeymoon, it's not the only option.

Consider planning activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, or kayaking to spice up your honeymoon. Also, some beach destinations offer romantic activities like sunset cruises, candlelit beach dinners, or even a private picnic on the beach. Don't forget to schedule some time for relaxation and pampering at the spa, too.

Beach Honeymoon Tips


#5 Pack Any Medications You May Need

The change of environment can bring with it a headache, or maybe you eat something that doesn't sit right. For such, it's always a good idea to pack any medicines you might need, just in case.

Also, remember that there are mosquitoes on the beach and you most likely will run into them. It's best that you travel prepared and take a good bug repellent with you.


#6 Keep in Mind the Weather

The beach always brings to mind a hot climate, but keep in mind that beach destinations also have rainy seasons and can still get cold.

Be sure to check the weather forecast for the dates of your honeymoon so that you can pack accordingly.

In conclusion, your beach honeymoon can be a magical experience, but it's essential that you spend enough time planning it. By following these simple tips, you can make sure your honeymoon is everything you've always dreamed of and more. So pack your bags, take your partner's hand, and get ready to have an unforgettable trip!
