4 unforgettable beach honeymoon activities

Your honeymoon can and should be the holiday of a lifetime. Even if it isn’t the first holiday you’ve taken with your new spouse, it is still your first as a married couple, which is certainly just cause for celebration and a bit of extravagance. You’ll want to remember it forever, and these experiences can help you do precisely that. The vast majority of honeymoons take place on luxury resorts situated on or near beautiful beaches; as such, these suggestions are perfectly suited to those who can’t imagine anything better for their honeymoon.

1. Candlelit dinner under the stars

Many resorts offer this romantic service; even if you can’t splash out for a villa with its own deck, the resort may have tables set aside on the beach for this very purpose. It’s incredibly romantic to be out there on the water, just the two of you, faces lit subtly by the candles with the crash of ocean waves in the background. If you can choose your menu, tailor it for romance; strawberries dipped in chocolate with Champagne is the ideal dessert, for example.

2. Couples massage

If your honeymoon is all about relaxation, then a massage is most certainly in order. Luxury resorts often have award-winning spas attached and many of them will offer discounts and deals to honeymooners who desperately need that relaxation after the stress of planning and executing a big, glamorous wedding. If you can’t swing the cost of a massage, try giving one to each other, a similarly romantic option.

3. Scuba diving

Anyone who has ever been scuba diving knows that it is a truly magical experience. The world that exists under the ocean’s surface is colourful, vibrant, and exciting, even more so if there are wrecks around that you can explore. It’s certainly worth finding out whether your destination resort has a centre which will take you out on a first dive; most will so you needn’t prepare beforehand. Going out together on your first dive is an exciting, romantic “first” that you’ll never forget, even if you continue diving afterwards.

4. Helicopter flight over the island

If you’re spending your honeymoon on an island nation, like Mauritius or the Seychelles, a helicopter flight around the island – or several islands – is an absolutely amazing experience. Everything is just gorgeous from up there, and it will give you a brand new perspective on the world. You could fly over the top of a volcano, past dense green forest, over white beaches starkly contrasted with the azure water lapping at the shore.

  1. We did a helicopter flight on Kauai during our Hawaii honeymoon. Truly fabulous! Now we enjoy an island closer to home, Martha’s Vineyard. It’s very scenic and has fabulous beaches.

    We did a couples massage and candlelit beach dinner on our honeymoon in Seychelles – it was a great idea.
