The best honeymoons are as distinct as the wedding, reflecting the tastes, quirks, and personalities of the couple who just said, “I do.” Yet whether the trip takes you across continents or no farther than a few miles from home, all should be a romantic jumpstart to your new life together. Here’s our list of eight great escapes, from traditional to trailblazing, guaranteed to satisfy all types of newlyweds.
The Caribbean can be a hard sell to the well-traveled who feel one island barely differs from the next. Yet, even for those who feel “been there, done that” about such getaways, Grand Cayman is still a gem worth exploring. Just 480 miles south of Miami, this British territory is home to seven miles of minimally developed beach; a turtle farm that leaves the most grown-up adult feeling like a kid in a petting zoo, and a laid-back efficiency that doesn’t allow a single worry.
It is this casual vibe of Grand Cayman that gives the island its distinction. Ever notice how supermodel Selita Ebanks is always the coolest one on the red carpet? No surprise…she’s a native Caymanian. A few days here and maybe you’ll leave with her signature ease and glow.
