Every love story is unique and so should be the honeymoon! Whether you are beach bums, wildlife lovers, adventure enthusiasts, winter babies or simply want your own slice of heaven for a few days, we have our pick of the hottest honeymoon destinations this year.
Bora Bora: Intimacy by the Beach
The islands of Tahiti instantly conjure up visions of a paradise on earth – picture-perfect white sand beaches, turquoise blue lagoons and lush green mountains. Bora Bora is especially popular with couples for its variety of intimate escapes, from over-water bungalows to private yachts, sunset cruises and secluded beaches and alcoves, all soaked in the magical potion of indulgence and luxury. The rustic setting of Bora Bora adds to its charms, making it a quieter alternative than other beach destinations. See our Bora Bora Bliss journey for more ideas.

Catch a dreamy sunset at the Gold Coast; take a romantic drive on the Great Ocean Road; gaze at the spectacular night sky in the remote Outback; or escape to a private island – the options are endless!
