If there is one time in your life that you should prioritise luxury on a holiday, it should be your honeymoon. Exploring somewhere you have never been before, in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, while being fully looked after, is the ideal romantic getaway. Add in the sense of adventure with your own private yacht and you have an unbeatable honeymoon.
For those wanting to truly put their feet up, a fully crewed charter is a fantastic option. Your professional onboard chef will delight your taste buds with every meal, while your skipper will tailor each day to be as memorable as possible.
One of our top picks for a sailing honeymoon trip in 2023 is the Caribbean. With a number of gorgeous islands to choose from, our sail and power charters are a great way to explore this tropical paradise.
Look no further than St Thomas that has its very own Honeymoon Beach. St Thomas is one three main islands that make up the US Virgin Islands. The steady trade winds create great cruising conditions all year round, and under the turquoise waters you will discover the full spectrum of colours of coral reefs and equally dazzling fish. Onshore, get your shopping fix in Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the US Virgins Islands or hike through the luscious national park on St John.
The British Virgin Islands has some of the best snorkelling in all of the Caribbean. Your charter will be truly unforgettable, either relaxing on the brilliant white beaches on one of the 25 islands, or enjoying some delicious local cuisine. An Antigua charter is exactly what you picture when you think of a luxury honeymoon destination. You will have your pick of 365 beaches to relax on during the day, and a thriving nightlife to party with the fun-loving locals.
Grenada is known as the Spice Isle of the Caribbean, making it a perfect honeymoon destination if you are a foodie couple. Sample local treats from the rum distillery, organic chocolate factory or spice plantations. Alternatively, for a more cosmopolitan feel, Martinique provides a French influenced twist on the Caribbean islands. Enjoy fresh croissants together after hiking the guided trails through the rainforests or visit the underwater sculpture park in Saint-Pierre.
St Lucia is one of the most well-known islands of the Caribbean and for a good reason. The 3,000 feet tall Mount Gimie is an iconic feature on the skyline and hiking to the nearby Soufriére volcano offers spectacular views. If you are looking to enjoy a nature filled honeymoon, look out for the tropical birds, unique foliage and the natural landmarks of the Pitons. A charter in St Martin offers a bit of everything. Balmy conditions create the perfect environment for trying our water sports during the day, while onshore there are many spots to go sightseeing or sample delicious food and cocktails.
With seven bases spread throughout the Mediterranean, you are spoilt for choice in romantic honeymoon destinations. However, it doesn’t get much more romantic than the Italian coast. A Procida yacht charter will focus on the Bay of Naples, renowned for their rejuvenating hot springs and world class cuisine. The beautiful beaches with fishing boats bobbing in the bays give way to steep rocky cliffs dotted with colourful buildings. For the foodies, our food and wine charter also departs from Procida, meaning you can eat and drink your way along the Amalfi Coast. Setting off from Sicily means exploring the Aeolian Islands. Hike through volcanic mountain ranges or dive below the waters to discover the UNESCO-protected snorkelling sites.
For the adventure seeking couple, a charter honeymoon in Thailand is a must. Cruising along Phuket’s East coast, the visuals of the natural limestone towers piercing out of the blue-green waters are nothing short of phenomenal. Anchor by one of the countless uninhabited islands for an ultimate escape, or head inland for the welcoming and thriving resorts and a taste of authentic Thai food.
There are so many possibilities for picking a luxury honeymoon destination in 2023. To find out more about our full list of romantic destinations, you can browse our picks below or speak to one of our holiday planning specialists by calling 033 0332 1545.
