Hello Bees…I have plenty of time to think about a honeymoon(I think) but my fiance and I dream of going to different kinds of places…I want to go somewhere tropical or near the beach with beautiful waters wherer I can swim with the dolphins and all…he wants to go somewhere with mountains or some where like thailand…does anyone know a place that has both beaches and mountains? I remeber a place a co worker told me about in italy that has both but I dont remember what it is called…any one know of any great places that we both would enjoy?

Jamaica – the coffee growing area has mountains.
St. Lucia – you can walk in the rainforest (not quite mountains).
Greece and Cyprus

Another vote for St Lucia… it has it all.
The Rainforest (will be similar to Thailand)
Mountains (the Pitons will give him a good challenge for an uphill hike)… and there is decent Zip-lining nearby
And the beaches are glorious… and wonderful Caribbean weather, people etc.
There are many Bees that have been to St Lucia… you’ll find topics here on the HONEYMOON BOARD but one of the best is Blogging Bee MrsBeanstalk who wrote up a great report on her Honeymoon Adventures in St Lucia
She stayed at Jalhousie Plantation Resort (literally right at the Pitons) it has since changed names and is now known as Sugar Beach Resort (you can find them online and listed on TripAdvisor too)
Mr TTR & I went snorkelling at Sugar Beach when we were in St Lucia on our Honeymoon… it was fantastic !!
Would definitely go back.
Here are some links to get you started

Hope this helps,

If he wants to go to Thailand and you want beaches…go to Thailand! There are more than enough beautiful beaches to choose from there.

@Bunni0929: Come to Australia! We have beautiful beaches in New South Wales and then the Blue Mountains/Katoomba only a couple of hours drive inland from Sydney… It’s pretty amazing.
