With so many honeymoon holiday destinations to choose from, how do you even begin to decide where to start your new life together? Ultimately, honeymoons come down to personal choice a lot of the time. What is heaven for one couple is not always appealing to another. Your budget, activities, and general preferences will often predict where you end up enjoying your honeymoon.
With that said however, there are a few places on earth that seem made for romance. These are the destinations that bring to mind flawless beaches, blue skies, azure waters and unsurpassed luxury.
