How do you choose the ideal getaway for your honeymoon?

Of course you know you want something romantic, peaceful, idyllic…but how about the experience? A great holiday should make for great memories and your honeymoon for the best of them all. So, unless you’re dead set on visiting the Maldives or getting married in Vegas, here are our top 5 experience destinations for a honeymoon to remember:

1. If You Crave A Tropical Beach…

Try Panama’s Caribbean coastline for white sand archipelagos, two Dollar pina coladas, secluded palm islands and rich indigenous culture. The Bocas del Toro and San Blas Island groups are both stunning with plenty of sunset bars and romantic hideaways. Both regions lie a short plane transfer from Panama City; To reach San Blas you can also take jeep through the rainforest and a short lancha boat journey to reach the autonomous, Kuna territory of palm fringed isles; For Bocas take the highway and a speedboat for a choice of lonely beaches and Caribbean cocktails.

2. For wildlife and the great outdoors…

Canada’s British Colombia provides the essential ingredients with awe inspiring scenery, forest walks to hidden waterfalls and close encounters with some of nature’s most majestic creatures. The hub of Vancouver is a city for everyone with its beaches, parks, restaurants and entertainment and then ride the daily helicopter flight to Vancouver Island and get lost at a remote luxury cabin in the wilderness.

3. For classical architecture, incredible art…

…stunning coastlines and private boat rides to dramatic coves consider Rome and the Amalfi Coast. Only a couple of hours transfer from Rome to Sorrento means a perfect match for a twin-centre. The scenery of this unforgettable region is unrivalled; along the coast road as it clings to the cliffs, winding along to picturesque Positano; or from the boats that ply their way to Capri – one of the Mediterranean’s true jewels.

4. For the Intimate Local Beach Resort…

Head to Unawatuna Bay in Sri Lanka for a no-frills village resort with intimate local beach restaurants and sunsets at the buddist stupa on the headland. Not far away some great excursions include the Pinewalla Elephant orphanage, the beautiful botanical gardens of Kandy and the tea plantations of the highlands.

5. For sights, sounds and aromas…

Brazil is known for its beaches and has so many to chose from, but the Bahia region around the beautiful city of Salvador is one of the best. Incredible fruits juices, seafood and coconut infused cooking, plus fresh lobster served on the beach with Samba sounds and street capoeira. You can be guaranteed it won’t be a dull week by the pool in Bahia.
