A honeymoon getaway to Hawaii is one of the dream locations to visit, with the destination a firm favourite among couples in the US… and its growing in popularity across the UK too. With newlyweds having the choice of visiting incredible islands from Maui to Oahu, the islands benefit from warm temperatures during the winter period for couples looking to visit some mesmerising waterfalls in Manoa Falls or choosing to relax on the beach to watch the sunset
The activities are endless for newcomers looking to sightsee in London, from Buckingham Palace, The West End and the London Eye. During the festive period, the famous Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is a must-see destination for loved up couples to enjoy the magic of Christmas with hot chocolate and mulled wine.
If you want to visit a warm destination and purely relax for a week or two, you can enjoy the deep blue oceans of the Greek island of Santorini. The breath-taking views of the island from its unique architecture to the sight of the Aegean sea is perfect for those wanting to sit back on the sunbed in bliss.
The Canary Islands are a prime location to enjoy some Pina Colada on the Instagrammable dark sand beaches across the island. Gran Canaria has a range of delicious Spanish cuisine to try out and is slightly cheaper to visit during the winter season compared to peak time in summer.
For couples searching for an exciting city break, they can enjoy the theme parks lavishly scattered across Orlando – which will have Disney adults in delight.
