Dive into the deep blue with scuba adventures, ride the waves while surfing, make new memories (and photos!) on a sunset sail, and absolutely make a stop at Lover’s Beach - a must-visit for every honeymooner.
For urban vibes, head over to Dubai, UAE. Exotic, luxurious, and ultramodern, these three words perfectly capture the city's essence. The best time for a honeymoon here is from October to April, when the weather is comfortably mild compared to the scorching summer months. Part of the appeal of a Dubai honeymoon is the city's super lavish hotels, like the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. So if your budget allows, consider treating yourselves to a night or two for the experience of a lifetime. Once you step out of your hotel room, Dubai opens up a world of possibilities! Feeling adventurous? Desert safari awaits. Want epic views? Take a trip up Burj Khalifa. And if you're up for some shopping therapy, go to Dubai Mall – which, by the way, is among the largest in the world.
While half the world is bundling up for winter, Australia is soaking up the sun. Beaches? Check. Sightseeing? Check. Luxurious resorts? Check. It's a honeymoon haven!
