Croatia and Greece are the two places that will give you a glimpse of what heaven truly looks like. Once you’re in Mykonos, enjoy yourselves at the beach, and when the sun goes down, go out and let loose. Make sure to visit Croatia, since it is one of the top destinations for tourists, especially during Yacht Week.

Jamaica, the Virgin Islands, Bahamas and the Cayman Islands are some of the favorite destinations for honeymooners thanks to beautiful beaches and year-round tropical weather. The majority of the resorts in the Caribbean offer outdoor activities such as kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. If you like the tropics and happen to have $62,000 lying around, take the ultimate honeymoon on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island for seven nights.
