COVID-19 and Honeymoons: Safest Destinations


This global pandemic changed all of our lives, even the smallest details have not been spared. While many couples were forced to postpone their wedding, newlyweds who managed to tie the knot now need to think long and hard about their honeymoon options. It won’t be easy to organize a trip that’s safe yet fun and romantic, but you can still manage to celebrate your marriage the right way. Here are some tips that will ensure you have a fun and relaxing vacation with tasty food, great lodging and plenty of comfort and activities to enjoy.

Glamping in Canada

According to experts, camping is one of the safest activities you can engage in right now since it will take you close to nature and away from other people. However, if you don’t want to spend your first night as a married couple in a simple tent, you can opt for glamping. This type of nature outing might be more suitable for a honeymoon because you’ll have all the modern amenities at your disposal (big bed, plumbing, entertainment) while still being outdoors. And there’s no better destination for a nature vacation than Canada. With its forests, mountains, rivers and lakes, you will get to enjoy all the best benefits of nature mixed in with the comforts you can only dream about.

Road tripping in Australia

Road tripping is another pretty safe way to travel and have a blast with your spouse. Australia is one of the best destinations for a road trip thanks to its good roads, plenty of fun things to see and do and its vastness perfect for exploration. So travel to Australia, rent a car and have a one-on-one romantic vacation. Feel free to stop whenever you want so you can soak up the beauty of nature and your spouse, especially when they are both showered in the evening desert sun. Plus, Australia has countless beaches, many of them secluded, so you’re guaranteed privacy and safety from the virus.

Yachting in Croatia

If you’re looking for a vacation that will honor all socially distancing rules, look no further than yachting. The amount of interaction you will get from others is much more limited than in resorts or on cruise ships, so you can have all the privacy and still have fun and relaxing vacation. Need a perfect yachting destination? Croatia has many amazing islands and ports, and the sea is striking. You can also easily find all inclusive yacht charters perfect for your honeymoon. Crewed charters will ensure you have a private yet lux vacation that will stay in your memory forever.

Local destinations

To have a great honeymoon, you only need one thing—creativity. This means you can even travel locally and have a blast, especially if you travel with your new spouse who might be looking at life a little differently. What you can do is book a stay at a nearby hotel and you can experience the best parts of honeymooning without all the hustle and bustle of traveling, crowds and high expenses. With a hotel or Airbnb, you’ll get a much-needed change of scenery and pace, yet get none of the disadvantages of traveling. Depending on where you live, you can travel to some exotic destinations yet stay relatively close to home.

Your home

Staying home for your honeymoon might be the last thing you expected last year, but now, it’s not such a bad idea. Since your honeymoon phase is the best time to bond with your partner, why not do it from the comfort of your home? You probably have a lot of time on your hands, so get busy with a few home improvements, create a cozy and romantic feel in your home and you and your spouse will start your joint life on the right foot.

A wonderful staycation honeymoon can be made even better if you turn your home into a tropical paradise (or mountain retreat) for two. It all relies on your budget, but your decoration options are endless. Want a fancy dinner? Order something from a restaurant and enjoy it in your backyard or by the fireplace. Want a spa experience? Thanks to the internet, you can isolate in your home and feel like you’ve traveled to some remote destination.

Don’t despair, newlyweds! You can still have a fun honeymoon filled with romance, even in the middle of all this mess. With some planning and compromises, there are destinations ready to take you in and give you an unforgettable honeymoon.
