September is considered one of the best months of the year for having a wedding and then for going on a honeymoon. The weather in most countries is great for outdoor wedding photoshoots; it’s sunny, not too hot but definitely not cold either. Plus, the school holidays are over and most families with noisy children have already left the touristic destinations.
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 September:
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 crystal clear waters.
Here you can lay on the beach and get a tan, experience water sports and activities, go scuba diving, taste the local cuisine or enjoy the vibrant night life. It also includes plenty of resorts and secluded beaches which are perfect for freshly married couples.
It’s the dry season here in September, making the weather warm and dry. This is the nesting season for many species of birds, and you will be able to admire them in the wild. But during this time of the year you can also view the incredible whale sharks off the coastline of Mahe. The weather is not too hot, but definitely not cold, so you can spend days exploring the nature or just relaxing on the beach.
2. South Africa
If laying in the sun and getting a tan is not really your thing and you want to do something more fun and exciting, then you can head to South Africa. The safari experiences will show you the African savannah as you can only see it on Animal Planet.
But you can also head to the amazing city of Cape Town and witness some of its beauties. Here you can climb the iconic Table Mountain (whether on a hike or with the cable car), 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.
