Unusual Second Honeymoon Destinations


Second weddings can be just as time-consuming, expensive and not to mention stressful as the first. But, just like with any wedding, there’s always the honeymoon to look forward to after the duress of entertaining relatives and saying your vows. It’s a wonderful period to spend exclusively with your partner as you explore the beginnings of your new marriage together. But it’s also a completely smoother experience this time around as you know what to expect. To take it to the next level, consider traveling to a destination that’s off the beaten path. Honeymoons should be unforgettable experiences, after all, and what better way of ensuring that you’ll remember it forever by going somewhere exotic and different?

Cape Town, South Africa

While it may seem far-flung, Cape Town is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and a perfect place to spend some time away together after the wedding. Enjoy the beautiful views of Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Take long strolls along any of the pristine beaches that stretch up and down the coast. Sample some of the finest vintages from the neighboring towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. The warm weather and laid back vibes are the perfect recipe for a new couple to reflect on the long road ahead of them.

Stralsund, Germany

Honeymooners don’t often think of the Baltic Sea when imagining a romantic retreat, but Stralsund is an atypical destination with plenty to offer newlyweds. Located on the mainland separating Germany from the island of Rügen, Stralsund is an ancient city steeped in rich cultural history. The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers a wealth of historic buildings to discover, as well as having the famed waterpark and wellness center HanseDom, which is actually situated at the Wyndham Hotel in Stralsund.

Vaadhoo Island, Maldives

For a truly unique and wonderful encounter that many couples are unlikely to experience, consider Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives as your honeymoon destination. The island is home to little more than 500 people, but it’s not the seclusion that draws adventurers and honeymooners to this spectacular place. The island is known as the “sea of stars” due to the bioluminescence generated by a special type of plankton that sprawl up and down the beaches. These plankton glow at night time, giving the beaches the appearance of being lit up by millions of stars as glowing blue waves lap on to the sandy shores. If you’d like to give your honeymoon a fantastical twist, then this is definitely the spot for you.
