Best Adventurous Honeymoon Destinations for Couples
Would you and your significant other rather experience a honeymoon that’s filled with outdoor adventures than laying on the beach all day or sipping cocktails by a pool? Then you’ll definitely want to check out some of the best honeymoon destinations for adventurous couples like you below.
Cappadocia is a community located in Turkey’s Anatolia region and offers an ideal location for a romantic and thrilling honeymoon experience. Spend the night in a lush, centuries-old cave at Yunak Evleri, hike through the Goreme Open Air Museum or take part in a magical sunrise hot air balloon ride.
The Galápagos Islands, located off the coast of Ecuador, is one of the best honeymoon spots for adventurers who love exotic wildlife. You’ll get to meet a variety of amazing and friendly wildlife as you kayak alongside sea lions, bike through a giant tortoise reserve or swim with penguins.
You may also want to book a tour of Santa Cruz Island, home to Ecuador’s Galápagos National Park.
Riviera Maya, Mexico
Yes, the beaches in Riviera Maya are stunning and you should definitely spend some time enjoying them. But adventurous couples will want to spend a good amount of their time exploring.
Head to Rio Secreto to hike, snorkel and swim along a series of underground caves, rivers and caverns. You can also bike through the jungle to pyramids, snorkel in coral reefs and swim in cenotes from Viceroy Riviera Maya, a beachfront (and eco-conscious) resort.
Mljet Island, Croatia
Mljet Island offers plenty of romantic activities for couples, including moonlit walks on gorgeous white sandy beaches, with the added benefit of providing more solitude than some of the other islands off of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast.
While honeymooning on this gem of an island, you can canoe through saltwater lakes to reach a 12th-century monastery and explore the pine forests of Mljet National Park by foot.
Stay in one of the Fijian villas at the exclusive Laucala Resort to experience breathtaking beaches and set off on horseback to discover all the beauty the island offers. You can also go windsurfing, explore the rainforest by foot and snorkel or scuba from the reef encircling the resort.
For the truly daring, visit the Shark Reef Marine Reserve, a protected sanctuary where you can dive with sharks, Moray eels and gigantic grouper.
Not only are these places amazing to visit, but you can fill your days with as much excitement as you crave. Of course, you can set aside time for romance, relaxation and beverage sipping in between all the adventures!
