Honeymoon BeachOne of the world’s most coveted honeymoon destinations, the Caribbean can claim to be a tropical paradise without resorting to hyperbole. Over 700 islands give way to shimmering clear seas that are turquoise blue and picture postcard beautiful. Life here is as unhurried as legend would have it: whether you’re unwinding in the spa or burying your toes in the warm sand, your holiday is sure to be a stress-free zone.

Head here between December and April to make the most of the warm weather and comfortably cool nights. While summertime is warmer still, it brings with it the occasional heavy downpour. These needn’t hijack your holiday however: when the Caribbean’s blue skies briefly cloud over, there’s plenty to do indoors, even if it’s just sipping a cocktail at the bar or cosying up in your plush accommodation. Choosing to spend your honeymoon in the Caribbean comes easily; deciding which of the 700-odd islands to visit will require a little more thought.

Honeymoon holidays in Aruba Honeymoon holidays in Aruba

The Caribbean’s so-called Happy Island, Aruba epitomises that oft-overused term – romantic. Stroll arm-in-arm along the white sandy beaches, picnic in a secluded cove, snuggle up under a blanket and watch the stars, or savour a soothing massage on the beach. When you’re ready to step things up a notch, strap on your snorkel and accompany your partner beneath the water where a subsea paradise awaits. Feeling peckish? Aruba’s legendary Caribbean cuisine includes jerk ribs, frogs’ legs, crab meat and Spanish tapas.

Honeymoon holidays in Bonaire Honeymoon holidays in Bonaire

Reputedly the Caribbean’s best island for diving, Bonaire is a destination where you could find yourself spending as much time on water as on land. Windsurfing, scuba diving and sailing are some of the numerous watersports to be enjoyed here as well as deep sea fishing and windsurfing. Take a sunset cruise, hire a quad bike and head off the beaten track and visit the Butterfly Farm that is awash with fluttering colours.

Honeymoon holidays in Barbados Honeymoon holidays in Barbados

A perennial honeymoon hotspot, Barbados’ famous golden beaches and opulent spas are a haven for those who appreciate the finer things in life. Treat your partner, treat yourself and go all out for the holiday of a lifetime. On the east coast of the island, where the waves batter against the shore, sugar cane grows on the island slopes, interspersed with the occasional plantation house, its bright paint faded by the fierce sun. Explore the seabed by taking a submarine trip or savour some time with just the two of you by heading out to Foul Bay, its quiet beach usually only frequented by locals.

Honeymoon holidays in Martinique Honeymoon holidays in Martinique

The French Caribbean is embodied by Martinique, a vibrant island that’s full of character. Sandy beaches can be found to the south while distinctive black sands lie to the north near Le Carbet.
