The Best Destinations for a Road-trip Honeymoon

After your big day, it’s tradition for you and your spouse to treat yourselves to a little getaway together to continue celebrating your nuptials. We are of course referring to your honeymoon and naturally, the ideas is that this needs to be something special that you remember for the rest of your life.

You might think, then, that to do this right you need to spend huge amounts of money, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Going on a road trip together can be much more affordable, and, providing you find the right routes, unique and romantic. To point you in the right direction, here’s a few route ideas:

The Romantic Road – Germany

While the name alone should be enough to highlight why newlyweds will love this route, the Romantic Road in the South of Germany is a stunning drive. It takes you through beautiful towns and cities along the way and features forests, castles and historical sights too.

The Garden Route – South Africa

This is one of South Africa’s most popular road trips, which takes drivers along the south-eastern coast of the country. As you might expect, it gets its name from the incredibly scenic views of different natural wonders, from lakes, to forests and nature reserves. Equally, lovers of the ocean can stop by on the way and visit an array of reefs, bays and sea-life centres.

Such is the popularity of this route, it’s actually considered an established holiday option and lots of deals can be found like the ones Wexas Travel has available.

The Wild Atlantic Way – Ireland

Discover the delights of the Emerald Isle together by driving down the Wild Atlantic Way. Starting in the North, the route heads along the West coast all the way down to the South crossing nine different counties.

You’ll both marvel at the miles of breath-taking coasts that feature ancient cliff formations and picture-perfect private beaches. You’re also bound to stumble across some welcoming, quaint Irish towns and villages too, in which can be found many great places to eat and stay.

California State Route 1 – America

In a similar vein to the last route, this famous trip up the California coast features some equally amazing views but in the summer has fantastic weather to go with it. Cruise in warmth and style along the Route 1 state highway, and take in iconic attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge together.

The Five Most Photogenic Holiday Destinations

According to a recent survey, Bora Bora is the most photogenic holiday destination in the world, but where else makes the list, and does this make them the perfect location for a wedding or honeymoon? Here, we take a look at the top locations on the survey, as well as considering whether they’re the ideal wedding location.


5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Located on the Brazilian coast, Rio is perhaps most famous for Copacabana beach and the Christ the Redeemer statue that sits atop Mt. Corcovado. With carnival festivals taking place all year round, Brazil always has a party feel about it, making it the perfect location for celebratory wedding photography or a great place to enjoy your honeymoon.


4. Bali, (Ubud), Indonesia

If you’re after an authentic experience wedding or honeymoon photography then the visually stunning town of Bali is the perfect destination. Known for its arts and crafts as well as its rainforest and rice paddies, there’s an abundance of stunning scenery as well as temples, shrines and holy sites.


3. Grand Canyon, USA

A place that really needs no introduction, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA is a 277-mile long, 10-mile wide natural wonder that will make the perfect background for any wedding photography or honeymoon snaps. Much of the area is also a designated National Park, and you can tour the whole area by air or by white-water rafting down the Colorado River depending on how adventurous you’re feeling.


2. Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Located off the coast of Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth. It is even visible from space! In its entirety, the ecosystem is 2,300 km-long. If you love fishing, the sea and wildlife it is the perfect place for you and your photographs.


1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

A small South Pacific island, Bora Bora is considered to be a bit of a celebrity hotspot these days. Known for its turquoise lagoons and its coral reef, it is incredibly popular among scuba divers. It’s also home to a dormant volcano, so there’s plenty to see and do. More importantly, there are also plenty of places to take those all-important wedding or honeymoon snaps.


All of these places are not only visually stunning, but will make incredible wedding locations. However, as with any wedding, travel (especially when you’re going halfway around the world) can be problematic, so rather than picking just one of these sumptuous locations, you could consider a wedding cruise with a company like Tropical Sky. The world is your oyster when it comes to planning your own wedding, so don’t feel limited by your location.
