Top 10 Honeymoon Islands in the Pacific

The crown of your wedding will be your honeymoon, and not because of an exotic trip, but because you and your spouse will finally be able to celebrate your love without dozens of eyes fixed on you. Once you’ve said your “I dos”, and shaken your relatives’ hands, hop on a plane and head to a remote island in the Pacific. Whether you’re looking for an adventure or a relaxed romantic getaway, you and your partner are bound to have the time of your life. Although every Pacific island is unique in its own way, they all share one feature – they are the perfect destinations for dreamy honeymoons.


Tahiti is at the top of the list of all the adventurous newlyweds who want to tame the waves of the Pacific. Regardless of whether you’re an experienced surfer or you’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, Tahiti is a perfect destination for you. Experience the amazing Tahitian waves during May, June, July or August when the weather conditions are particularly favorable for surfing. However, Tahiti is also popular among couples who wish to get to know the local culture, attend the famous Heiva Festival or just relax on sandy beaches.


For a unique and exciting honeymoon experience, visit Vanuatu, an island rich in culture, natural beauties and thrilling activities. Whether you want to mingle with amicable tribal communities and learn about their cultural heritage, or celebrate your love privately in one of the chic boutique resorts, you and your partner will have an opportunity to experience a truly magical atmosphere. While there, you should explore the history and mystery of the Espiritu Santo area which is famous for its wreck dives.


In the vicinity of Tahiti lies the island of Huahine, a true Polynesian gem. This sublime island abounds in magical blue lagoons, white sandy beaches and charming horizons.

Any nature-loving couple will be inspired by the pristine beauty of Niue. Niue is the perfect destination for breathtaking diving experiences – crystal clear waters, unspoiled coral reefs and hidden underwater caves will leave you and your partner speechless.

Being one of the most enchanting destinations of the Cook Islands, Aitutaki will provide you with out-of-this-world experience.

You and your partner can visit the charming, dreamy villages of Aitutaki, hike through the rainforest or admire the sunset while on a cruise. Both of you will simply fall in love with the scenic landscape, and wish to spend the rest of your lives holding hands on one of the Aitutaki beaches.


The archipelago of Palau is rich in volcanic and limestone islands which are popular destinations for nature lovers and divers. Palau offers many attractions, ranging from natural wonders, such as the Ngardmau Waterfalls and Jellyfish Lake, to cultural sites, including several museums. If you and your partner are looking for an adventure, you should get off the beaten track, and explore the jungles of Palau. Of course, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to explore the shipwrecks and diverse marine life of Palau, either.
