5 Best Romantic places to honeymoon

1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

It's the stuff honeymoon fantasies are made of: crystal-clear waters, picturesque mountains and a coral reef swirling with colorful fish. Charter a helicopter to take you around towering Mount Otemanu, then touch down on a neighboring island for a tour of a black pearl or vanilla bean farm.

2. Paris, France

Paris is synonymous with romance. It's a combination of the architecture, the food and the art that makes this city so special. The travel guides will talk about going to the Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower—all definitely worth your time. But this is your honeymoon, so you also have to tie a ribbon (locks are discouraged now) on the Pont des Art bridge, which symbolizes your committed love to one another.

3. Venice, Italy

Italy has long been a favorite honeymoon location for newlyweds. After all, nothing says “amore" quite like a gondola ride through the Grand Canal as you sail past historic buildings. Take a romantic, leisurely stroll around Piazza San Marco to feel the true scale of the enormous domes of the Basilica di San Marco or the beautiful and ornate details of Palazzo Ducale. Then, escape the sights and sounds of the city with a dreamy boat ride to one of the unspoiled islands nearby.

4. Santorini, Greece

This small volcanic island is known for its seriously gorgeous sunsets and pristine whitewashed villas. Even couples who get antsy after an hour of beach time will find lots to explore. Take a scooter to the red- and black-sand beaches, check out ancient sites—like the newly reopened Bronze Age settlement of Akrotíri (oftentimes called “Minoan Pompeii")—visit wineries, go hiking and stop in the many boutiques.

5. Harbour Island, Bahamas

Chances are you've never seen anything like this pink-sand paradise. Plus, it's loved by boldface names like designer Diane von Furstenberg, Mick Jagger, Bill Gates and supermodel Elle Macpherson, so it must be amazing! Visit postcard-perfect Pink Sands Beach and settle in among the three-mile stretch of sand and turquoise waters. Above the beach, join the jet-set for an open-air lunch at Sip Sip (the fresh menu changes daily). Then shop for a flowy caftan or other souvenirs at India Hicks's Sugar Mill Trading Co. shop.
