Today Buy Our Honeymoon continues their series taking a look at the best places to go on honeymoon month-by-month — and where to avoid!
We’ll even suggest some of the best ideas to add to your honeymoon gift list for your chosen destination.
Ah September… Peace!
The children have returned to school, the weather is warm — what a wonderful time to have a honeymoon!
Conditions are perfect and any destination in the Med is a great choice: the crowds have gone and there isn’t the frenzy of peak season.
The sea is still blissfully warm enough to swim in, and you might find you have the beach almost to yourselves.
The islands of Corsica are Sardinia are classy and chic, but still slightly off the beaten track.
Sardinia regularly tops polls of the world’s best beaches; ranging from the rugged, cliff-backed coves of the east to the dune-flanked strands of the west.
Much of Corsica’s coastline is blessed by truly spectacular beaches, with some reminiscent of the Caribbean. Soft white sand and shallow turquoise water abound.
A wonderful gift idea would be to take a boat trip to Les Calanques, giant rock formations 400m high in shades of pink, ochre and ginger.
The most glorious time to visit New England is the ‘fall foliage’ of September into October, where leaves turn the most glorious shades of gold.
This annual phenomenon has its own language: “leaf peepers” arrive to see “the color” in “the foliage season” — and there are other wonderful autumnal traditions: country fairs and harvest festivals, pumpkin-carving contests and excursions aboard old-fashioned trains.
The days are still wonderfully warm and you can explore the charming villages, spectacular summits and beautiful scenery of Vermont and New Hampshire.
Why not combine it with a short city break to Boston and catch a Red Sox game or walk the Freedom Trail?
A brilliant gift idea is a couple of pints in the Bull and Finch Pub (now finally renamed Cheers after years of confusion) for some great photo opportunities.
If you fancy a real bucket list tropical paradise then September is a wonderful time to honeymoon in Fiji — it’s still dry season, but the peak crowds have calmed.
The beaches are out of this world, a picture perfect paradise of coconut trees, white sand, warm water, hammocks, sun, cocktails and an array of colourful fish.
But if you can tear yourself away from the stunning beaches there are so many fun things to enjoy: do a jungle trek; take a Sigatoka River Tour and jet boat up the longest river in Fiji to learn about the history, fauna and flora; visit a Fijian village and go to the Chief’s bure (house) and take part of a kava ceremony!
We’d especially recommend visiting the Sri Siva Subramaniya temple in Nadi, the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere and the most colourful — a definite ‘must see’!
A fantastic gift idea is a Fijian Yacht Cruise: your chance to escape and be castaways by sailing on the Pacific, visiting the island of Modriki (the location of the Tom Hanks movie “Castaway”) including a BBQ lunch, afternoon tea! Bliss!
Destinations to avoid in September
It’s hurricane season in the Caribbean and southern USA, so be careful about booking your honeymoon there for September.
It’s also monsoon season across mainland Southeast Asia and southern India, causing travel disruption in most of the region, with some hotels and roads closing.
