A short flight away, Corfu has some stunning spots where you and your love can enjoy some time marking the occasion.

Spend your days lazing on the beach, swimming in the sea or rent a car and explore the island, pottering around the pretty, whitewashed towns. Take luxurious lie-ins, long lunches and slip into the life of total relaxation you’ve earned for your honeymoon.

As a fledgling tourist destination, honeymooning in Cuba is increasing in popularity, and has a lot to offer the adventurous honeymoon couple.
