Many people choose to go on their honeymoon in April, and there are plenty of reasons for that. First of all, it’s a good time to have your wedding this month because it’s already warm and sunny in most places of the world, but it’s not too hot either.
Then, you have the exotic destinations where it’s either the end of the wet season or the beginning of the dry season, a period known as “shoulder season”. So the weather will be pretty good for a honeymoon, and you will also end up paying less than in peak season.
Whether you decide to go to the Caribbean, to Dubai, Africa or Australia, there are plenty of amazing places to choose from. Now let’s have a look at the best honeymoon destinations to visit in April:
This is a very rich and glamourous city which also has the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It includes giant malls, huge boulevards, amazing restaurants and other interesting places to visit. The weather is also very warm and the place has plenty of amazing beaches to lay on. So you can combine days of city exploration with days of just laying in the sun and swimming.
Summer in Dubai is unbearable because of the very high temperatures. But the weather in April is a bit more comfortable. Most tourist crowds come here earlier in the year when it’s even cooler, so this will mean that you will have quieter malls and beaches to enjoy.
This is a wonderful country in the Indian Ocean composed of 115 islands. It basically is a part of the African continent, making it the smallest country by population in Africa, with just around 90,000 residents.
The islands are simply breath-taking with crystal clear waters and soft white beaches. It’s a dream honeymoon destination which is not as expensive as other more popular places. It exceeds the hype and offers plenty of experiences to try besides just laying on the beach all day. Unwind with your loved one by exploring the wilder side or by exploring the amazing underwater world through snorkeling.
April is right before the dry season in Seychelles, so the days will be a bit cooler and drier than the wet season. Also, the waters are the clearest in this month, making it the perfect time to go diving. The good weather conditions also allow for most of the wildlife to lurk around, so you will have plenty of chances to spot exotic animals that you usually not see at home.
The main island of Antigua is known to have 365 beaches, so if you could stay here for an entire year, you could lay on a different beach each and every day. The other island, Barbuda is also filled with splendid exotic beaches where you can have a dream honeymoon.
In April there is also the Antigua Sailing Week, so you can enjoy some of the most amazing yachts in the world, whether you are a fan of sailing or not. This time of the year is the end of the dry season, making the weather great and the crowds who had spent the winter here already gone. In Barbuda you will also be able to view the largest colony of frigate birds.
If you’re already living in the States or somewhere nearby, and going to an exotic island is not an option, you can always head to California. There are plenty of things to do around here, and there is something for everyone. If you like outdoor activities, you can go on a hike through the amazing Yosemite National Park.
But if you like shopping, movies, actors and want to enjoy the glamorous life, you can visit the famous Hollywood. Here you also have the Napa and Sonoma wine regions where you can taste some amazing wines, and the cool city of San Francisco where you can spend a few days visiting interesting places.
So if you’re more of an adventure seeker than a beach person, California is definitely a great choice for a honeymoon in April. The temperatures are mild and the valleys in Napa and Sonoma are in full bloom, giving some wonderful views. And if you like music and live concerts, you can even head to the Coachella festival that takes place every year in April.
This is another splendid exotic location and it includes 333 islands with jungles, beaches and lagoons that are out of this world. The weather here in April is less humid and not as warm, so it’s the perfect time to arrive before the crowds.
Since this is not peak season, the prices are also lower, whether we are talking about accommodation at luxurious resorts, food or entertainment. And in this time of the year you might even be able to spot some amazing manta rays swimming in the ocean. Explore our favorite places to stay during your honeymoon in Fiji.
