Fiji is may is nice and warm… the locals will be wearing cardigans while youre in a sarong & tee looking for a cold drink

thing is, what do you want to do on your honeymoon… other than the obvious?

the south paciifc is full of lovely small islands…. Vanuatu, Tonga, Niue, the Solomans, Fiji, Tahiti, New Caladonia

lots of choices and all good

Can’t get a whole lot further than Fiji :p I’d LOOOVE to go. It’s one of my dream vacays, but I doubt we could ever afford it. New Zealand is supposed to be nice too.

new zealand is lovely…, but dont forget we have winters mid year so May could get a bit cold, especially if you are down south….. but it will be autumn so the colours will be fab!

scuba, snorkel, maybe a little hiking and fishing….

pick any of the south pacific islands, they all have this

Fiji might be easier for you to get to, i think its a direct flight via hawaii isnt it? my advise is to either get to one of the smaller islands or head down south to the coral coast – get out of nadi.  are you already certified for diving???  if yes then there are a number of dive resorts in fiji that can offer all youre after

my fav place is Vanuatu (3hr international flight from sydney) – we got there every 2 or so years so

if you have any specific questions ask and i might have some answers

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon. We went to Fiji (one week) and then onto New Zealand (2 weeks). You can do all of the water-related activities that you mention Miss Dandelion along with what, after all of the wedding planning and activities, I found to be the best activity – nothing but relaxing in the sun. That said, the whole point for adding New Zealand to our trip was for activity…Smilebut be sure to leave some time for nothing.

FYI – I don’t think that travel agents usually “cost” money. Typically most hotels and excursion vendors have a small commission amount that they pay a travel agent for making bookings (e.g. 5% of total room charge). If you book directly with the hotel search engine that commission is just re-absorbed by the hotel. Travel agents often have access to travel consolidators and other similar companies that can sometimes mean cheaper prices. I could be wrong about the specific details about how travel agents work but I think this is generally the process. When we planned our vacation we use a combination of travel agent bookings and direct bookings (e.g. bookings that we did ourselves) because the travel agent was not always cheapest. Depending on how familiar you are with the area a travel agent might have insight about good/bad locations, travel tips etc…
