This is a little presumptuous since we aren’t engaged yet (will be within the next few months though!), but here and there SO and I talk about where we would like to honeymoon, and can never seem to come up with somewhere neither of us has been. We would definitely like something beachy, so no staying in a big city or the country. We live on the east coast of the US. He has suggested Hawaii but I would prefer to go somewhere outside the US.
Where I have been: Bahamas, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Mexico, Spain, France, Israel, Australia, several pacific islands in the general vicinity of Australia, Jamaica
Whete he has been: bahamas, Grand Cayman, BVI, several Mediterranean isles I.e. Crete, Italy, Egypt, Australia and several pacific islands, Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica
Edit: I know there are tons of places aside from where we’ve been, just not many I could think of off the top of my head. i have to admit I would have never even thought of Croatia or Mauritius or some of the other exotic destinations you all are suggesting. Keep them coming 🙂

Nevermind, saw he went to Crete
Croatia? Where in Aus did you guys go? You could go to Whitsunday, Hamilton island or any of the others around there if you havent been. Thailand? If you want amazing beach, I’d go with Whitsunday or Thailand if you want a far away more exotic honeymoon. Those are the most impressive I’ve seen having been to Hawaii, Mexico, USVI/BVI, Bahamas as well. After Whitsunday, every peach pales in comparison to me.
Flic en Flac? I haven’t been a a friend has been and she said it was beaautiful. Definitely off the beaten path.

Greece! Santorini! There are tons of islands in Greece. Crete isn’t the only one.
You’ve been to Spain, but have you been to Majorca?
You say France – but does that mean Paris? Have you been to South of France?
Fiji? Bora Bora? Tahiti?
There is an island off the coast of South Africa that is supposed to be amazing – doesn’t sound like either of you have been there before (Mauritius).
Just because you’ve been to a country before doesn’t mean you can’t go back to visit another city/location in that country.
ETA: There are still islands in the Caribbean you haven’t visited – St. Lucia? Jamaica (Negril? Ocho Rios?) Turks and Caicos?

Maybe you have been to those countries, but have you been to the coast of each of those countries (if they have a coast, obviously lol)? I ask because both my DH and I have travelled quite a bit, but we haven’t seen every region of every country we’ve visited. And just because one of you has been there it doesn’t mean you can’t return. No matter how many places I visit I still have my favorites that I return to over and over.
If you’re set on somewhere new to both of you what about the coast of Tanzania? Thailand? Your Fiance has been to Italy, but has he been to Sardinia? Sicily?

@pinkshoes: ^Yes, Croatia is amazing! Highly recommended.
My fiance and I are looking into India or Indonesia ourselves 🙂

African safari! Or Antarctica? Both are amazing! What about Patagonia? Those are all regions of the world neither of you have been, and are spectacular. Africa and Argentina both have some spectacular coastline you could throw in. Obviously Antarctica is colder, but the kayaking is spectacular.

@cbj9: How about Asia or the South Pacific? Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Philippines, Indonesia, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand, Seychelles…
So many places, so little time!!

Maldives? Bora Bora? Turks and Caicos? Thailand? Philipines?
If you want beach, there are plenty of places you haven’t listed that have gorgeous beaches.
Have you considered middle east? Dubai is absolutely amazing and there is plenty of beach and sun.

@cbj9: I’m assuming you’re not low key kind of people, but the Outerbanks of North Carolina is quaint and has lots of adventerous things to do in addition to the charming bed and breakfasts on Roanoke Island.

Japan, all the many countries in Europe you’ve missed, a beachy area in the USA you haven’t been to, or just pick a favorite and go back! I guarantee that in one trip to Spain you didn’t see all of Spain, for example, so there’s no reason you can’t redo a country. It’s a big world after all!
