October is a wonderful month for a wedding and honeymoon. The cooler weather in North America makes for a wonderful wedding climate and makes a warm honeymoon destination desirable (the Caribbean is always a good option!)
After all of the hassle is done and the wedding ceremonies are complete, it’s time to have some time alone with your spouse and enjoy an amazing honeymoon in October. October is a great month to go on your honeymoon as it is not a busy time to be traveling. You will have fast airport lines, low hotel rates, and plenty of alone time – perfect for your honeymoon.
Whether you go to an exotic island, a safari in Africa or some sightseeing in Europe, there are plenty of amazing places that you can see. Now let’s have a look at some of the best honeymoon destinations to visit in October:
1. St. Lucia
St. Lucia is a beautiful destination in October. With an average temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius), the pristine beaches of St. Lucia make for a perfect honeymoon spot.
Each of the Caribbean islands is beautiful in its own way, but only St. Lucia has the Pitons, two majestically soaring volcanic spires that are impossible to ignore. The island is epically romantic: lush hills and valleys, swaying palm trees and endless beaches are just the beginning.
Big smiles, genuinely welcoming hospitality and unforgettable adventure are all part of the St. Lucian culture.
Looking for an exotic island with incredible beaches and crystal clear waters? Then Tahiti might be the perfect choice. This is the largest island of the Society Islands in French Polynesia and it’s located in the central part of the Pacific Ocean.
This is also where the first over-water bungalows were ever built, and they will make a great experience. You can basically enjoy a splendid sunset and then go straight to your room, while in the morning you can open the door and jump straight into the ocean.
It is the end of the dry season here in October, so the weather will be just fine: warm and sunny with no clouds in sight and no crowds of tourists. It’s also the period to see the last migrating humpback whales before they head back to Antarctica.
This is a unique collection of islands and the only granite-formed oceanic islands in the world. The views are splendid, and they include plenty of idyllic beaches with white sand and clear waters.
Besides just laying on the beach, getting a tan and sipping on a cocktail, you can also try some water sports, go scuba diving, taste the local cuisine or enjoy the vibrant night life. There are also resorts dedicated to couples and secluded beaches where you can have some quality alone time with your spouse.
Seychelles is also in the last month of the dry season in October, so the weather will be dry, warm and sunny. The waters are chill and clear, making it one of the best months for diving and snorkeling, and you might even notice the amazing whale sharks.
This beautiful country is also known as the “Land of Smiles” and that’s for a good reason. You can see the colorful markets and the busy streets of Bangkok, or ride an elephant in the Khao Sok National Park. But there are plenty of islands with great beaches and exotic sceneries.
Some of the islands with good weather in October are the Krabi, the Koh Lanta and Phuket. It’s the start of the dry season, so you might witness some occasional rains, but the weather will be good overall and there will also be fewer crowds of tourists.
If laying on the beach all day long seems a bit boring to you, then you can head to Kenya for some incredible safari experiences. Here you will be able to witness the African wildlife as you only get to see it on TV. This is the Lion King world in real life.
Kenya also has the end of the dry season in October, so the weather will be dry and warm, with blue skies and no rains. The wild animals will be more active than the rainy season, so you will be able to witness them in real life. Plus, it’s also the last month of the year to witness the incredible Great Migration, where more than 1 million wildebeest are traveling.
This is an amazing country that offers some incredible experiences for all tastes and all budgets. It includes plenty of islands with exotic beaches and clear waters, but also plenty of forests and mountains to explore. The landscapes are simply breath-taking and will offer an amazing backdrop for a honeymoon in October.
The underwater world is also amazing and it’s definitely worth discovering through diving and snorkeling. October is the start of the wet season, but the weather will still be good for outdoor fun and adventures. The best weather during this month will be in the islands of Cebu, Bohol and Palawan. Thanks to the few but short-lived rains, the entire nature will get back to life in lush green.
This is another incredible African country where you can have some unforgettable safari experiences. But here you will also find luxurious resorts with secluded beaches, spas and all the amenities you might possibly need.
Here you can also view the incredible Victoria Falls with water dropping from a big height in a splendid location. It’s the end of the dry season here, so the weather will be warm and sunny, with no clouds or rain. This water makes the walking safaris more pleasant, and you will be more likely to see the wild life.
8. South Africa
Not only you can have some amazing safari experiences here, but you can also visit the beautiful city of Cape Town. Here you can climb the iconic Table Mountain, walk on the Tree Canopy Walkway, visit the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art, admire penguins at the Boulders Beach, visit the Robben Island where Nelson Mandela served many years in prison, eat, drink and shop at Kalk Bay or the Long Street and so much more.
The weather in October is warm and dry, allowing for easy traveling, hiking or safari trips. In the shores of the city of Hermanus you might even be able to spot some whales in their natural habitat.
