Enjoying that first week or two of married life together provides the perfect way to celebrate your new status. Indulging in a honeymoon (or mini-moon) is what most newlyweds do to continue their wedding party far away from the stresses of wedding planning or the prying eyes of wedding guests.
These days couples don’t tend to do honeymoons half-heartedly. The surge in YOLO (You Only Live Once) honeymoons has seen couples travelling further and adventuring harder than ever before. But those looking to limit distractions and up the romance will want to choose a more secluded honeymoon destination.
We reveal the most stunning secluded spots so you and your new husband or wife can eat, drink, snooze, soak up the sun and, most recover from wedding planning!
