With all the holidays and festivities in December, it’s a great month to plan the wedding of your dreams followed by an amazing honeymoon. When it comes to planning a honeymoon in December, it’s easy to dream of white sandy beaches and warm balmy breezes. Of course, there are a lot more options. You want your honeymoon to be as special as your wedding and an extension of the celebration of your love with plenty of romance. Here are a few of the best places to honeymoon in December.
From the Sydney Opera House to the Great Barrier Reef, Australia has something for everyone. Since Australia sits in the southern hemisphere, December is one of its summer months, making it pleasant temperatures to explore the Outback or spend a day on Bondi Beach. Don’t forget all the cool critters that they have down there, including kangaroo, koala bears, and Tasmanian devils.
If you’re looking for warm sandy beaches, cold tropical fruit drinks and spicy food, then Mexico is a great honeymoon destination with an enormous selection of all-inclusive resorts to choose among in varying price ranges. Of course, Mexico is a lot more. You can get your adventure fix here too. From Mayan ruins to bustling cities filled with new sites and sounds, there is more to do when you’re done sunning and surfing.
If you’re looking for sandy beaches and clear blue waters with an exotic locale, then Bali, a small Indonesian island in Asia, fits the bill. Visit the temples tucked away in the Ubud Monkey Forest or view the ancient carvings in the Goa Gajah caves while staying in this island paradise. It’s easy to book an all-inclusive vacation on this small island that offers all the amenities that you want without being your standard honeymoon.
USA Ski Resorts
If sun and sand aren’t your things, you can plan a getaway to the ski slopes in Colorado, Utah, Idaho or a few other states. Imagine how romantic it’ll be to sip warm cocoa by a warm fire after a day of snowboard or skiing. Many of these resort towns have local businesses that offer snowmobile adventures or horseback riding through the mountains. At the end of the night, warm up together in an outdoor hot tub with snow-covered mountains in the background.
Find adventure and romance in South Africa. At this honeymoon destination, it’s easy to find a safari package that takes you and your new spouse through Kruger National Park to see the Big Five, the African lion, Cape buffalo, African elephants, rhinoceros and the African leopard. If you’re looking for something a little more active, take a river rafting trip through the Blyde River Canyon.
Made up of more than 700 islands, there are plenty of sandy beaches and clear blue water for playing and swimming. These islands offer cays or coral reefs to explore with a snorkel or dive if you’re certified.

You’ll find a variety of amenities, dining experiences, and entertainment to suit your personality.
