10 Reasons to Honeymoon in the Caribbean


There is no comparison between accommodations in other parts of the world and all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean.

These are not just your standard honeymoon hotels. Visiting a Caribbean resort is about luxury and romance, and you deserve that. After all, this is your first vacation as a married couple. You should be treating yourselves.

Whether you're interested in the Bahamas, Barbados, Antigua, Jamaica, Grenada, or St. Lucia honeymoon resorts or another island altogether, you will never leave the Caribbean disappointed. This is a literal paradise, the perfect place to visit for two people in love.

Of course, you’ll have to see for yourself one day. But in the meantime, here’s 10 reasons you need to consider the Caribbean for your honeymoon.

1. More Than You Bargained for

One thing that makes an all-inclusive honeymoon in the Caribbean so enticing is that you get a lot for your money. A lot of couples take the "there is no such thing as too expensive" approach for their honeymoon, but why pay more for lesser luxury?

Instead of being isolated in just one location, you can hop a plane or boat to visit several islands. Because each island offers something special and unique, you gain a broader understanding and appreciation of the beautiful culture, history, and people.

2. Time on the Water

If you and your spouse-to-be love being on the water, there is no better destination than the Caribbean. In addition to island hopping, you can enjoy deep-sea fishing, sailing, kayaking, or incredible yachting tours.

Along with the sheer romance of it all, spending time on the water allows you to see marine life up close while providing you with once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities to share with current family and friends, as well as any children in your future.

3. Adventures Galore

Regardless of age, the two of you can enjoy so many memorable experiences together, some low-key and others adventurous. When spending your honeymoon in the Caribbean at an all-inclusive resort, many excursions are part of the package deal, while others you would arrange on your own or with the help of the resort staff.

Some of the more popular adventures include hiking through the rainforest, sightseeing, and participating in an array of watersports, such as scuba diving and snorkeling.

4. Pristine Sandy Beaches

Whether on land or in the water, the Caribbean has a worldwide reputation for its gorgeous sandy beaches. Because many of the best Caribbean honeymoon resorts with all-inclusive packages are situated only feet from the beach, you have quick and easy access. When compared to other beaches in the world, the Caribbean boasts the finest.

For beautiful romantic beaches, head to one of the flatter islands, such as Anguilla, Antigua, Barbados, and Grand Cayman. If you stay in Grenada anytime from March to July, visit the Levera Beach, where you can see hatchlings of leatherback turtles scurrying into the ocean.

5. Delicious Cuisine

One aspect of the Caribbean that makes it so fascinating is that whether you eat from one of the road or beachside food shacks, in a casual restaurant, or at a fine-dining establishment, the cuisine is delicious.

Dishes like Lechon, which is suckling pig; spicy jerk chicken; and Indian-influenced Roti, a traditional flatbread, are among the most exceptional.

6. Local Heritage

If you and your partner enjoy sightseeing, you have the chance to learn about the rich Dutch and colonial heritage of the Caribbean.

Hotspots for honeymooners are Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua, Port Royal in Jamaica, and the Brimstone Hill Fortress in St. Kitts. No matter where you go, sightseeing is a great way to spend quality time together

7. Romantic Experiences

For romantic experiences, you can stay tucked inside of your room or suite, spend time on the beach, or take a number of different outdoor excursions.

The best honeymoon resorts in the Caribbean offer private accommodations, each richly designed and decorated. As for the beach and excursions, the two of you can take an evening stroll or relax on a private sunset cruise to enhance your romantic getaway.

8. Complete Privacy

Although exploration is a huge part of any honeymoon in the Caribbean, so is privacy. Especially after spending extensive time planning your wedding, you want and need alone time with your loved one.

While many Caribbean islands offer the privacy that you want, Belize is hard to beat. On this island, you can stay in an intimate hotel or all-inclusive resort, swim underneath waterfalls, explore caves, hike in the jungle, and more.

9. Safety

Not all foreign destinations are safe. Fortunately, the Caribbean islands are known for being calm, relaxing, and safe.

You can even go off the beaten path and be completely safe.

10. Warm Weather and Sunshine

For your honeymoon, there is nothing better than feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin.

Blessed with cooling trade winds, clear blue skies, and more sunny days than other destinations, you have the opportunity to spend quality time inside and outside while on your Caribbean honeymoon.
