3 Not So Famous Honeymoon Destinations Worth Checking Out

Believe it or not, there are only 3 things needed to make your honeymoon perfect…you, your loved one, and a special place to celebrate the beginning of your new life together. As a full service travel agency in Watertown, South Dakota, we’ve planned quite a few honeymoons.

Because we're certain that you've already scoured the internet for famous honeymoon destinations, perhaps we can give you insight into some not so famous honeymoon destinations that are super memorable and will take your breath away:

  • Bruges (Belgium)

Belgium is known around the world as the land of the sweetest and most addictive chocolates, but do you know what else it’s famous for? You guessed it: Romance!

Bruges is a city in Belgium, and it’s as close to a ‘modern’ medieval city as you’ll ever get. And yet, this same vintage setting makes it the perfect place to host your honeymoon. We say this because it has a look that can be likened to the setting of a fairytale.

The cobbled streets crisscrossing around the city and the picturesque canals add to the experience too. We’re not surprised it was given the nickname the “Venice of the North.” And once you go there, you’ll agree it deserves the name too.

  • The Isle of Skye (Scotland)

Nothing is more synonymous with Scotland than the kilt; that takes first place, but being a popular honeymoon destination should be given second place.

Few places in Scotland can offer you a dramatic and beautiful mountain scenery like the Isle of Skye. It’s all about the two of you. You’ll be in your own world because the vast landscape will give you opportunities to enjoy some quality time together.

You can hike the Quiraing or go have a romantic stroll by the shore. The setting sun will set the mood by painting everything in a gentle, golden glow. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this sight.

And if you don’t want to remain outdoors for too long, why not take a tour of the ancient and magnificent Dunvegan Castle? The choice is all yours.

  • Cinque Terre (Italy)

Don’t go to Italy just to treat your spouse to pizza. There’s a lot more romance in Italy. Think of Cinque Terre as a paradise nestled between large mountains and the sea. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, it’s very true.

With panoramic footpaths forming a web all over the place, each step you take brings you closer to a grand and magnificent sight.

The setting of the place is one thing but the food and wine are something else entirely.
