What about south america? Argentina is beautiful and has a good mix of adventure and relaxing. You could have adventure in Buenos Aires and tour the wineries of Mendoza, then hit the mountains in Bariloche and relax on the beaches in Patagonia.

I am not sure about the when the monsoon season starts, but Goa in pretty awesome. Amazing beaches and food,history, etc. and the monsoon is pretty predictable.

The heat may be too much for you, but depends on how well you tolerate it. I was in Northern India in 40 degree heat and was fine. But I crave heat, so I may not be the best example.

What about Bali and/or Lombok? My fiancee and I are also going on our honeymoon and had similar considerations to you, and this is where we decided on. We thought of Europe for a while but decided it would be WAY too crowded there during August (especially the south of France – I have been there in August and the beachs are absolutely PACKED). Bali has beaches (nicer ones in Lombok than Bali, but it is easy enough to get from one island to the other), culture, adventure, and apparently amazing food. August is also in their best season weatherwise. While it is an expensive flight to get there, it seems incredibly inexpensive once you get there, so it should balance out!

You sound like your in the exact same situation as me 😉  I am the more adventurous type and love to explore around and see what the country has to offer..  Not just stay on the beach the whole time.  Which is what my Fiance would be happy with..  In August..  (So no Caribbean.. Otherwise I was interested in Belize).

Thailand is a great area to explore, I had a lot of fun there..  That’s what me and my family did..  We went up to Chaing Mai for the “adventure” part with the zip line tour, the elephant ride and jungle tour and visit the villages of the long neck tribe..  Bangkok was seeing the temples and shopping.. Then down to Phuket for the beach with speedboat tour and relaxation..  (Or Koh Samui is another good beach area).  I went in November which was perfect.. My cousin went in August but said it was hot and muggy, with some showers at times since its their rainy season technically..

Otherwise I might suggest Australia or New Zealand.. I was thinking of that for us but I would go there for a long period of time like a month to travel around since it takes so long to get there..  Lots of things to do and see with beaches..  But our summer is their winter, but I don’t think it gets as bad as here though.

Ultimately me and my Fiance will be going to Hawaii which will work with both of our needs.  For me, I get the snorkeling, surfing lesson, hiking in the jungle, going to the Volcano Park, and kayaking..  While we get to enjoy the beaches too 🙂  Its hot and sunny there and kinda busy with families on summer vacation in August but oh well.
