Honeymoon spots


Thursday, March 3, 2005

One of the most frequent Ask Getaway questions that pops up in our mailbag is about honeymoons. Probably the most important holiday in a lifetime, everyone wants the ultimate honeymoon. Sometimes it's difficult to choose a destination that will please both people, so we have put together a list of our favourite hideaways at home and overseas.

Queensland is an oldie but goodie, with its fantastic range of islands. You can't beat its smorgasbord of accommodation and activities and days of lazy sunshine. You can enjoy the romance of sailing the seas with Sunsail yachts, with or without a skipper.

The New South Wales south coast has loads to offer. We chose it for those who fancy sugary white sandy beaches with the added bonus of an excellent range of places to stay.

Tasmania was recently named hotspot of the year in Britain. A place of wonderful scenery and sweet little towns, it is particularly romantic in the cooler months, with many cottages with welcoming log fires and some of the best cuisine you will find anywhere.

Western Australia's Margaret River has it all: beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean, superb wineries, some of the country's best food and an absolutely wonderful range of accommodation.

If you fancy an overseas honeymoon, here are a few places we thought would appeal.

Santorini is a picture-postcard Greek island. It's hard to go past the whitewashed villages and some of the best sunsets you will ever see.

Mauritius is a magnet for honeymooners from around the globe. There is a good range of resorts to suit everyone's budget on this beautiful Indian Ocean island.

The Seychelles, also in the Indian Ocean, offer the perfect escape. The natural beauty resembles a movie-set and it's just the place to work on the perfect tan and do little else.

If you are looking for heaven on stilts, go no further than the overwater bungalows of Bora Bora in Tahiti. If you are looking for heaven on earth, Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia was given that romantic name by the incurable romantic Luciano Pavarotti.
