When it comes down to picking the perfect honeymoon destinations, when you go can be as important as where you go. Just like most trips, the timing of your trip can affect everything: the cost, the weather, the activities, and the crowds.
The spring season- in most destinations- offers mild climates, a slower tourism season, and beautiful natural scenery coming out of its winter slumber. So, if you’re getting married in the spring season and want to plan your getaway around then, definitely factor the season into your final decision.
Here is the roundup of amazing spring honeymoon destinations around the world!
– Amsterdam –
If you are looking for an idyllic setting for a European honeymoon getaway, then look no further than Amsterdam. From its picturesque canals, affordable prices compared to larger European cities, to the open-air restaurants, Amsterdam can easily be argued one of the most romantic cities in Europe.
Spring brings longer days and vibrant colors to the stunning landscapes of Amsterdam!
In addition, most of the locals in Amsterdam speak English and are extremely friendly and accommodating.
While the reputation for drug issues and the Red Light District may deter some, Amsterdam is filled with so much culture, history and luxury as other European destinations. Just imagine getting lost among the city’s streets and canals!
– California Coast –
San Diego and Los Angeles offer big city nightlife, luxury accommodations around amazing beaches and attractions. Spring is the perfect time to visit the Southern California coastline!
Further north, there are lots of cabins and resorts up the Big Sur coastline Mendocino County, some tucked away in the trees, and others with an ocean-front view.
If you are looking for a luxurious stay, there are beautiful, private accommodations with both ocean and mountain views and resorts that offer restaurants, daily activities more!
You can find ocean front campsites, cozy tree houses, yurts and tent cabins in the area where you can pour a glass of wine and admire the beautiful and intimate scenery.
– Florence –
Spring time in Europe, while less sunny than the summer season, attracts smaller crowds of tourists, and mild climates. In my humble opinion, Florence is the most romantic destinations in Italy, with its quiet cobblestone street, rustic architecture and the grand Arno River flowing by.
Besides the architectural wonders like the Duomo, the breathtaking overlooks from Piazzale Michelangelo, and the delicious Italian cuisine, the charm of the city and local culture will be more than memorable.
Pasta and wine by candlelight, a gelato dessert break, followed by a live music serenade from the Ponte Vecchio, a Florence honeymoon will be everything you’ve dreamed of!
– Santorini –
This iconic Greek island is well known for its picturesque white buildings built into cliffs, and dramatic, heavenly sunsets. Santorini contains unspoiled, stunning beaches, gorgeous landscapes, ancient cities, a lively nightlife, and even an active volcano.
Spring is the best time for sightseeing everything the island has to offer!
Santorini will be more on the expensive side of honeymoon destinations, as you pay for the incredible views- whether its from your hotel room or restaurant table. However, the shoulder season, April – May, will be cheaper than the summer months overall.
You’ll have to remember that you’re on island time, so if you are in favor of the laid-back, go with the flow lifestyle, then Santorini is the perfect spring time honeymoon destination!
– Charleston –
Charleston comes alive with tourism and blooming magnolias in the spring, and wonderfully mild temperatures!
Charleston is also a major foodie destination, with refined Southern culture with all the modern touches, you can find amazing cuisine throughout the city.
Isle of Palms have great public beaches if you’re looking for some fun in the sun, and if you’re a bit of a history buff, there are a ton of museums and tours that will suit your fancy.
– Maldives –
The Maldives is a turquoise water and white sand kind of paradise. With multiple luxury resorts, you can find the private villa, right on the water, that suits your tastes.
The peak season for the Maldives is actually December through February when they have their best weather, so the spring months are considered the shoulder season- meaning better prices!
You can count on high quality and delicious sea dishes, intimate villas, private pools and world class sunsets in the Maldives!
