Falling in love is like finding a little piece of magic.

Throughout the planning and the wedding day, it seems like magic continuously flows toward the both of you, and your honeymoon should be filled with even more magic.
Renowned luxury concierge Pure Entertainment Group crafts memorable beyond measure bespoke travel experiences for discerning travellers around the world, and are true experts at creating unique getaways to popular and unexpected destinations alike. Today they have put together their top 10 choices for the world’s best enchanting beach destinations for a honeymoon, each offering newlyweds their unique touch of magic.
1. Fiji Island
With a rich and colourful culture, endless sublime beaches, and deeply glamorous resorts, honeymooners can find a little piece of paradise among the 333 islands that make up Fiji. Take part in a traditional Kava ceremony with the locals, visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple in Nadi, the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere, or even charter a private yacht to sunbathe with your love while island hopping through the Fijian islands, each more beautiful than the next.
2. Bora Bora
Imagine waking up next to your forever love in an over-water bungalow, overlooking where turquoise waters meet vast mountains. In Bora Bora, newlyweds can revel in full post-wedding seclusion, enjoying romantic swims in blue lagoons, snorkeling, and relaxing couples’ spa treatments in complete privacy.
Known for its ultra luxurious accommodations, coral reefs, blue lagoons, and untouched natural beauty, the Maldives are a popular destination among celebrities and honeymooners alike. Located in the Indian Ocean, many of the hundreds of picturesque Islands that make up the Maldives are largely uninhabited, so many couples choose to pretend that they are stranded and rent a private island.
Tropical and luxurious, the volcanic nation island of Mauritius is a lesser-known destination for a honeymoon that we highly recommend. Full of colour, tasteful local cuisine, and a rich and welcoming culture, Mauritius offers so much more than lazy days at the beach. Plan a private helicopter tour to explore the Mauritian mountains, wildlife, rainforests, and so much more!
Another off the beaten path honeymoon destination, the Seychelles have always been on our radar, however were popularized a few years ago when Prince William and Kate Middleton honeymooned there. Offering an unparalleled level of opulence and seclusion, combined with an authentic culture and friendly locals, lovers relish the beach just as much as the rare wildlife and nature reserves.
6. Kangaroo Island, Australia
After sweeping her off her feet, a trip down under to the top honeymoon destination in Australia will really blow her away. Just off the mainland, Kangaroo Island is a true sanctuary with its diverse nature wildlife and reserves, which allow you to observe kangaroos, koala bears, penguins, and wallabies, along with many other native species. In between getting up close and personal with the local wildlife, up the adrenaline with private couples’ surfing lessons.
7. St Vincent, West Indies
With French and English influences, the 32 islands that make up St Vincent, known as the “Jewels of the Caribbean” truly promote what a honeymoon should really be about: a worry-free escape from the everyday. The major sailing destination is made up of many opulent secluded islands, active volcanoes, and beautiful harbours filled with yachts, allowing honeymooners a healthy balance between ultimate seclusion and local mingling.
Many choose to save a trip to Hawaii for their honeymoon, and for good reason. The heavenly American state has a long history of delighting lovers with its lush jungles, unbelievable rainforests, breathtaking beaches, and enticing local flair. Splashed with red, gold, black, and green sands, Hawaii’s enchantment comes from a combination of its people and the wonder of its marvellous beauty.
9. El Nido, Palawan, Philippines
Known as one of the best beach island destinations in the Philippines, El Nido is an unexpected haven for post-wedding bliss. Spanish for “nest,” El Nido is a sublime paradise island, with its crystal clear water, marble cliffs and immaculate beaches. Inexplicably managing to excite you with the feeling of being somewhere new, while at the same time feeling oddly like home, you may never want to leave.
10. Bali, Indonesia
The ultimate honeymoon indulgence, Bali looks like it was taken directly from a dream. With lavish private villas and 5* accommodations, waters that beg to be swam in, jungles demanding exploration, majestic volcanic mountains, and thousands of wondrous religious temples to discover, some standing over 2000 years, Bali offers many special activities to savour as a newlywed couple.
