My Favorite Honeymoon Destinations by Month: July – December

As I promised last week, here are my favorite honeymoon destinations by month for the second half of the year.

JULY: Kenya (and all of East Africa)

This is the dry season in East Africa and migration season in the Masai Mara which means wildebeests, wildebeests, wildebeests (and all their accompanying predators). Additionally, wild life is easier to spot as the brush is less dense during the dry season.

AUGUST: Fernando de Noronha (Brazil)

Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago a little more than 200 miles off the coast of Brazil. August marks the start of the dry season for the islands which otherwise have very little temperature variation. August is the best time for surfing and diving as the seas aren’t as rough. As a bonus, August is the least busy time of year for this UNESCO world heritage site.

SEPTEMBER: Greece

All the European crowds have returned to work, but the water is still warm and the sun is still out in Greece. Less crowds mean cheaper rates and empty beaches!

OCTOBER: Morocco

Just like Greece, autumn in Morocco means less European crowds. Additionally, October means summer temperatures in the South and on the coast, but the Mountains haven’t become too cold to enjoy!

NOVEMBER: Nepal

November is a sneaky month between the rainy season and winter. The landscape is lush and verdant, and the weather is dry with good visibility (which is perfect for Instagram worthy photos). It is also festival season in Nepal, so prepare for some festivities.

DECEMBER: Iceland

You may get a limited number of sunlight hours, but the crisp, clear nights allow for some inspiring Northern lights viewing. Add to that guaranteed snow, twinkling lights and hot springs for a perfect white Christmas.
