It’s no surprise COVID-19 completely changed special events and human interaction. While the travel industry changes routes, increases sanitation, and enforces restrictions, it’s important to educate yourself on the reason as to why these things are happening. Don’t worry! Your honeymoon is not canceled. However, it might be a little bit postponed. Our expert South Florida wedding planners at Deer Creek Golf Club are here to share a few honeymoon destinations post-COVID-19.
Where to Go for Your Honeymoon
While international travel might have limitations right now, our team is sure once the travel bans are lifted, it will be safe enough to travel again. From Hawaii, Cape Town, Barcelona, and more, here are a few honeymoon destinations for your romantic getaway.
- Cape Town, South Africa
As soon as the travel restrictions are gone, Cape Town, South Africa should be on your list of romantic getaways. Cape Town provides stunning views with activities for all outdoor enthusiasts. Hike, surf, swim with sharks, rock climb, and so much more! We recommend adding Table Mountain National Park, Boulders Beach, and The Cape Winelands to your itinerary. Explore Cape Town’s history, indulge in their incredible food scene, relax by the beach, and experience one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
- Turks and Caicos Islands
Coronavirus has nothing on your Turks and Caicos honeymoon. The border is currently open to U.S. citizens and residents and guests can visit the Turks and Caicos.

Add horseback riding, snorkeling, and kayaking to your itinerary and immerse yourself in the clear blue water.
- Lake Tahoe, California
If you are unsure where to go for your honeymoon, check out Lake Tahoe, California. One of the most beautiful places in North America is Lake Tahoe, which is a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains that connects California and Nevada. The blue hue in the water that shines in the summer is absolutely stunning, and the plethora of winter activities when it snows is the reason why this is a great place to visit for year-round fun. Hit the slopes in November through February or go for a dip in the lake during ideal summer weather May through September.

One of the most romantic and picturesque places in the world is Santorini, Greece. This honeymoon destination is known for its breathtaking views.

Bali is an excellent place for adventure seekers as well as those who enjoy relaxing. This island provides you with the best of both worlds when it comes to your romantic getaway. Enjoy the mountain vistas, exquisite temples, vivid art district, and so much more!

Pack your bags post-COVID-19 and enjoy the relaxation Fiji has to offer. Fiji is a beautiful island country in Melanesia that provides its guest with the picture-perfect vacation. The best part about Fiji is how convenient it is to get there! With a nonstop flight from Los Angeles, you’ll be on the island ready to kick off your romantic getaway in about 11 hours. Choose to stay in an overwater bungalow or private resort for a stay you won’t forget. Soak up the sun, check out the spa, and take in the fresh Fiji air.
If you prefer a mountain setting, Switzerland is the country for your romantic getaway. Not only does Switzerland provide stunning mountain views, but the valleys, waterfalls, and resorts tucked away in the middle of nature are only a few reasons as to why so many people choose this honeymoon destination. The Alps are covered in snow year-round, but if you are looking for a warmer climate, choose to visit mid-June. For those who aren’t afraid of the colder climate, plan your honeymoon any time between December and March. If you are unsure where to honeymoon, Zurich is a vibrant city, Montreux is a resort town on the shores of Lake Geneva, Zermatt provides picturesque mountain excursions, and St. Moritz is a charming town with panoramic views of water and land. Whichever city you choose to visit, you are sure to have a memorable and wonderful honeymoon.
