BY Sakshi | 08 May, 2018 | 2085 views | 5 min read

Excited about your summer honeymoon but don't wanna do Europe again? Asia is too hot we know, and an escape to someplace wonderful sounds like a good idea, right? Well, if April, May or June are months you're stuck with, then you still have plenty of other options which are amazing in those months! Pleasant weather and gorgeous views await you in these 10 destinations which are perfect for these months- so try doing something different!

French Polynesia

Even though it's warm more or less the whole year, May to October are the months with lesser humidity, although it's perfect to visit anytime! There are a lot of other islands to consider here apart from Bora Bora, which is the most famous! From Tahiti to Taha'a, there is so much more to explore here! July is when the locals have their Heiva i Tahiti festival, which is a a month-long celebration of Tahitian culture. Surround yourself with reef sharks, sea turtles, and tropical fish or be adventurous and try a safari trip- the place is gorgeous! 

Belize, U.S

While the other summer months might not be doable for this, March and April are ideal to visit Belize in Central America for a honeymoon, as it falls right in the middle of the annual whale shark migration, making it one of the best times for an exciting dive. And don't worry, they are the non-dangerous kind! You even have the option to leave civilization behind and sail over for an all-inclusive overnight stay on the privately owned island Ranguana Caye. Snorkel or dive in Belize's Barrier Reef, kayak, or just lounge all day long in beachside hammocks.

Todos Santos, Mexico

A small town on the Pacific coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, this one has some gorgeous beaches and is a place more reclusive than Tulum. Though the region remains remote and undeveloped, there's plenty for couples to do: snorkeling with sea lions, glamping on the beach, picnics on deserted islands, and hikes through the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range.

Considered one of the most beautiful destinations on the planet and one of the best honeymoon destinations in May! April and May are the best months to visit Fiji, when the sun is not directly overhead, and the heat and humidity are bearable. The blue waters and the panoramic views are stunning, and so is the island. Have private island picnics and lunches, sunset canapes, spa treatments and scuba diving excursions. It's one place when you guys can actually feel like you’re the only two in the world! 

Napa Valley, California, U.S

A European vibe with California weather, can it get better than Napa Valley? April and May have a low-key scene, when you can really take your pick among romantic retreats, before going around famed wineries! It's non-peak season, but still great without all the rush! Do some wine tasting, get a couple's massage or take a hot-air balloon ride over the valley!

If you guys are more adventurous, then consider Peru in South America! With both natural and man-made attractions, it has everything from rainforests to snow-sprinkled mountains, a beautiful Pacific coastline and colonial architecture. Visit the majestic ruins of Machu Picchu and the mysterious Nazca Lines or get lost down Cusco’s cobblestone streets or check out the unique Rainbow mountains! May is a great time to visit Peru, especially if you want to hike to Machu Picchu in terms of weather and crowd.

Kinosaki, Japan

Kinosaki is one of the best honeymoon destinations in May, and one of the most popular ones in Japan because you’ll enjoy a slightly less crowded season, since it’s right after the cherry blossom season in late April, and right before the hottest days of summer. After you’ve relaxed in the many onsens and sampled the local fare or relaxed in the hot springs here, catch a short drive to the Kinosaki Onsen to go boating or lounge by Kai Beach.  

Curaçao Island

The best time to visit Curaçao is from May to November, during the off-peak season. During these months, you'll find the lowest airfares and hotel rates, with rooms often priced up to 50 percent lower than they are in the high season. You might just feel like you’re only two on the shores, which is perfect! From an early morning climb to see incredible views from Mount Christoffel to lounging at one of the top 25 beaches in the world, Grote Knip - there's a lot to do in this Caribbean Island for honeymooners!

New Zealand

The fall in New Zealand, which is March, April and May are gorgeous! It's one of the best times to plan your New Zealand vacation since the summer crowds have left, the attractions charge off peak rates, and the weather is amazing. Whether you want to hike, sun on the beach, or sip wine, the weather is perfect for it during these months. The country has no shortage of breathtaking scenery, and even their summer is rarely warm. 

Seychelles &/Or Mauritius

May and June are their wintertime, which means the area is drier and the lodging is modestly affordable. The rates are cheaper than July and August (which are their two driest and usually busiest months), yet the gorgeous weather is still the same: cool and dry. If you're a water lover, these places are perfect for you- whether you want to lounge around on the beach, or snorkel or dive- the pristine blue waters are inviting either way!
