Discovering the Caribbean: A Romantic Trip for Newlyweds


As newlyweds, you’re sure to want to find the most romantic places to visit on your honeymoon. And what could be more romantic than a trip to the Caribbean?

There are so many beautiful islands to choose from in the Caribbean, each with its own unique flavor. The Caribbean has it all, whether you want a relaxing beach vacation or an adrenaline-pumping adventure. So where should you go on your Caribbean honeymoon? Here are some of our top picks:


Aruba is an independent country that’s part of the four countries of the Kingdom of Netherlands. It’s a dry climate filled with breathtaking seascapes where you can enjoy sunsets daily. Moreover, after the past news about this year’s disaster, you wouldn’t want to get caught up with this phenomenon during your first night as husband and wife. Fortunately, Aruba sits just outside the hurricane, which makes this place one of the perfect getaways for couples all year round. The hotels on this island also offer several all-in packages. So you wouldn’t have a hard time planning the perfect honeymoon.


If you, lovebirds, enjoy a place filled with rich stories and history but with a touch of enjoyable nightlife, then Barbados is perfect for you. For starters, Barbados is home to pink sands and beautiful emerald-blue waves, boasting a picturesque Caribbean coastline. Going back, every local person you’ll meet has a story to tell, and you can spend the entire afternoon listening to the place’s story. So, when the night comes, you can enjoy a spicy night together as husband and wife or interact with the locals with their irresistible nightlife. If you prefer, you can walk around the town and visit the bustling capital of Bridgetown or participate in their Friday Night Fish Fry every Friday!


For couples that prefer to spend their honeymoon discovering several islands, the Bahamas would be the perfect playground for both of you. The Bahamas is an archipelago that’s home to more than 700 islands. Some hotels offer the perfect cruise here to enjoy with your significant other and spend a good afternoon sun on private islands included in some cruises. However, if you enjoy a more adventurous moment together, the Bahamas also boasts a number of watersports and enjoyable parties every night. Visiting this island also means experiencing other unique outdoor experiences like swimming with pigs.
