We look at why the Bahamas are the perfect honeymoon destination

We look at why the Bahamas are the perfect honeymoon destination: Image 1 We talk to Islands of The Bahamas about the best places to stay and the most popular activities for newlyweds in this gorgeous honeymoon destination, so you can get planning your dream escape for when travel restrictions have lifted...  

The Bahamas have long been the islands of choice for couples looking to enjoy idyllic locations for the most magical time of a relationship, the honeymoon. The warm Bahamian welcome that greets every guest whether romancing on a private island, a luxury resort or a small boutique hotel, ensures that every visit is truly memorable. There are styles to suit every preference whether luxury or simplicity, small secluded coves and endless beaches of sugar soft sand, designer shopping and locally crafted souvenirs, total relaxation, or every type of playful activity.

Round off a blissful day with a private beachside dinner or exotic nightlife, all options are to be found not only in the main tourism destinations of Nassau Paradise Island and Grand Bahama Island but also in the carefully curated hotel selections on many of the Out Islands. Eleuthera & Harbour Island, The Exumas, Bimini and Andros, to name but a few.

International hotel brands offer sweeping garden landscapes, cascading pools, restaurants of every flavour, and activities and entertainments to take honeymooners through fun-filled days to starlit nights. Many feature packages dedicated to couples. At Atlantis Paradise Island, where of its five different styles of accommodation The Cove Atlantis is perhaps the most stylish and secluded for romancing, there are honeymoon packages as well as a Wedding & Honeymoon Registry. www.atlantisbahamas.com/celebrations/honeymoons

We look at why the Bahamas are the perfect honeymoon destination: Image 3 What to do

Taking time to enjoy each other as well as the beautiful surroundings is always in vogue in The Bahamas. Any spare energy can be spent on the excellent watersports, sailing and limitless marine fascinations.

Powerboat to The Exumas to see the iguanas, paddle with the famous swimming pigs (a must do), or even get in the water with some docile nurse sharks.

Tickle the taste buds with a Tru Bahamian Food & Culture walking tour tasting many of the local specialities while exploring Nassau and its pirate history www.trubahamianfoodtours.com

Sunset sail. No trip to The Bahamas is complete without getting out on the clearest water in the world, and a sunset dinner cruise is a perfect way to combine romance with the sailing experience.
