Deciding on your honeymoon date is almost as big as choosing the day of your wedding. While the wedding sets the stage for a magical memory with your friends and family, honeymoons are catered for you and your lover.
Your first holiday as a married couple is magical, and part of this magic comes from the fairytale destination.
If your budget allows, the world is your oyster and you can jet set to any destination of your desire. On the other hand, having a smaller budget doesn’t stop you from travelling to budget-friendly locations that are just as spectacular and opting for a honeymoon package.
November brings summer to the southern hemisphere and winter to the north. While there are plenty of stunning winter destinations, sometimes a summer holiday is all we really want.
Explore your options with these enchanting island destinations for honeymoons in November.
From tropical islands to food-focused locations, you have the opportunity to pick a place that’s everything you’ve ever dreamed about. These destinations can be suited to a number of different budgets, preferences for couples, and the weather.

Islands are the top choice for when it comes to romantic honeymoons. Zanzibar promises the experience of underwater explorations and feasting under palm trees. As well as adventures, hopping around the island, and relaxing on the beach.
The semi-autonomous archipelago holds charming ancient cities made from stone, friendly locals who are always ready to share their recommendations, and slow-paced living. There’s an old fort to visit, numerous beaches to wander and even a butterfly centre to stop at.
The island is also aware of how much attention it gets from honeymooners. You’ll find an array of honeymoon packages to make your experience hassle-free upon arrival.

Some couples prefer a lack of tourists when they’re spending quality time together. Maybe they’re looking to find a destination that’s largely untouched by the rest of the world.
