5 Unique Honeymoon Destinations, High on Romance, Low on Crowds
It always feels that little bit more exotic and exciting visiting destinations that other travelers aren't flocking to. Especially on your honeymoon when secluded, romantic spots are just the ticket.
If you’re planning a honeymoon, and you’re ready to go down the road less travelled, here are our five favorite spots that will help you get off the beaten track.
1. Palawan, Philippines
Palawan is a hidden piece of paradise that was recently named "The Top Island in the World" by Conde Nast Traveler's Reader Choice Awards. Nothing defines Palawan more than the water around it. With turquoise seascapes and wildlife terrestrial and aquatic, the Philippines’ most sparsely populated region is also the most beguiling.

2. Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Breathtaking natural beauty and colourful Mayan villages define the stunning Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. The region is rich culture, with several small towns surrounding the lake that are all different in their own right - relax or party, take your pick!
3. Port Antonio Jamaica
The Caribbean is eternally popular with honeymooners, but there are still plenty of incredible spots that aren't packed with drunken snowbirds. Port Antonio beaches are a big reason why this place is so special. Home to the original Blue lagoon (channeling Brooke Shields circa 1980), an idyllic cove with turquiose waters and sheltered by lush green foliage.

5. Koh Lanta, Thailand
The secret was out on how stunning Thailand's beaches are long ago. However given the sheer number of islands in Thailand it's still possible to find spots that don't feel like a tourist super highway. Koh Lanta is one such paradise that isn't crowded or spoiled, with an amazing array of activities to while away your days.
