Summer is prime wedding season, which means it’s also prime honeymoon season. And just as weddings can take a variety of forms – from quick-and-dirty city hall ceremonies to opulent events that’d put William and Kate to shame – there are various honeymoons you can take to help you celebrate (and recover from) your wedding day.
Here are the most-searched honeymoon destinations on Yahoo Travel, and what they have to offer:
Famous for its crystal-clear waters, overwater bungalows, and hefty price tag (the airfare alone will likely run $3,000 to $5000 per couple), this South Pacific paradise is the epitome of the (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime indulgence honeymoons represent. If you and your new spouse are active vacationers, Tahiti’s for you; the nearby island of Moorea is a fantastic diving spot. If it’s delicious food you wish to dive into, Tahiti is also for you; local establishments offer a variety of American and Asian cuisines.

Ah, Venice. The waterlogged Italian city’s reputation for romance is irresistible for honeymooners. Its unique architecture and world-famous art (and those gondolas!) helped make it one of the few cities we’ve seen James Bond visit three times! Tip: don’t make this a quick stopover as part of a tour. Venice needs to be experienced, so give yourselves a few days to fully enjoy it – or better yet, spend your entire honeymoon there!
