Alternative honeymoon destinations ‘getting more popular’

More people are seeking something slightly different for their honeymoon in order to have a great experience and to have something to tell their friends about upon their return.

This is according to an article on the Travel Counsellors website, which points out that while traditional favourites such as the Seychelles and Paris will always be popular, other holiday destinations are now rising into the limelight for people looking to share their first luxury holiday together as a married couple.

Sicily could be one option for newlyweds on the lookout for something different – the article points out that it is “rich in history and culture”, as well as having some of the finest wines in Italy.

Meanwhile, looking further afield, the Dominican Republic is often overlooked by many people who choose Caribbean destinations such as Barbados or Jamaica.

However, Travel Counsellors points out that the Dominican Republic is one of the less busy islands, so could present the perfect opportunity for a romantic, secluded getaway.

“Dominica does offer some amazing walking, snorkelling and incredible natural beauty,” the website attests.

According to Andrea DeLucia, writer and editor of TravelSavvy, Venice is also continuing to be as popular for honeymoons.

Some 20 million tourists visit the city each year, including those looking for a romantic ride on the gondolas.
