20 Best Honeymoon Destinations in April

Get ready to explore our favorite beaches, mountains, and cities in this guide to the best honeymoon destinations in April. 

We start getting pretty excited when we think of honeymoon destinations in April. There aren’t many months where you can travel to many of the most popular locations in the world, and find the best deals while you’re at it. 

April is the perfect time for tropical honeymoon favorites like Saint Kitts, historical landmarks like Machu Picchu, and some of the top spots in the USA and Europe for cheap. 

However you slice it, April is the perfect time to take a trip after tying the knot. So let’s take a look at 17 of the best destinations. 

April Honeymoon Destinations 

Ilha Grande, Brazil

Best For: Tranquil Island Honeymoon 

Ilha Grande, Brazil

If you want to explore one of our favorite islands in South America, check out Ilha Grande in Brazil. Couples who visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site will enjoy unspoiled beaches with clear, blue waters and white sands.

April is a lovely time to visit areas like Lopes Mendes Beach before peak tourist season kicks in. 

The highs are typically around 75°F to 80°F, and water temperatures heat up to almost 80°F.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Pousada e Mergulho Dolce Vita

Machu Picchu, Peru

Best For: Adventure and History

Machu Picchu

For couples who feel like packing their best pair of hiking boots and trekking up one of the most important historical sites in the world, we think Machu Picchu is the perfect honeymoon.

Guess what? April is the best month to visit the world-famous landmark in Peru, as it sits between the rainy season and peak tourism.

Start your honeymoon admiring architecture from the colonial Cusco Cathedral to the ancient Inca Complex at Sacsayhuaman before venturing to Machu Picchu for a once-in-a-lifetime hike.

Book your ticket ahead to hike up the 8,000-foot Incan ruin. Then, admire the beautiful Andes Mountains landmark before peak tourism kicks in. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7-10 Days
Suggested Stay: Palacio del Inka, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Kalahari Desert, Botswana

Best For: Safari Honeymoon 

Kalahari Desert, Botswana 

The Kalahari Desert is a sprawling section of land covering nearly 348,000 square miles (900,000 square km) over 3 countries in Africa.

We love the idea of taking an April honeymoon in Botswana, where you can embark on a safari in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

What makes this honeymoon special is the chance to see big cats like leopards, cheetahs, and lions. But you also may get close looks at giraffes and elephants.

April is still the peak season for wildlife, with much of the water from winter rain still around for the animals to drink from.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Grassland Safari Lodge 

Isabela, Puerto Rico

Best For: Beachside Adventure 

Isabela, Puerto Rico

Excellent seafood, warm weather, sandy beaches, and rainforests. Where are we talking about? Puerto Rico.

When we think of the best waves for nearly any skill level in Puerto Rico, Isabela is one of the first places we think of. Located on the island’s Northwest side, you’ll find beaches like Jobos Beach that are perfect for adventurous couples who want to surf.

For honeymooners wanting to hit the waves, April is a perfect time when it’s still dry, and the swells are just right for beginner to average surfers. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Royal Isabela

Puglia, Italy

Best For: Culinary Honeymoon 

Puglia, Italy

One of our favorite Italy honeymoon ideas, Puglia is no longer much of a secret.

The beaches, villages, and food are on the radars of couples more and more every year. That’s why April is a perfect time to visit before the summer season kicks in and when you still might find bargain deals at resorts and villas. 

So where to go when you’re there? Of course, you need to see the cone-shaped houses (Trulli) in Alberobello and the whitewashed hillside village of Ostuni.

But the neighborhood seafood restaurants in towns like Gallipoli and luxury farmhouse dining at Masseria Il Frantoio will create unforgettable memories with the best food and wine imaginable. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10 Days
Suggested Stay: La Sommità Relais & Chateaux

Atacama Desert, Chile

Best For: Honeymoon Stargazing

The Atacama Desert, Chile

The Atacama Desert is one of the premiere stargazing destinations anywhere in the world, and the perfect place for a unique and unusual honeymoon.

April offers plenty of clear nights for cozying up under the stars before the peak tourism season begins.Stay in San Pedro de Atacama, where there are plenty of fun dining options, and beautiful resorts.

We love the Nayaro Alto Atacama for its luxury accommodations and stylish restaurant, serving creative cuisine using local ingredients found near San Pedro de Atacama. The best part? They have a private observatory where you can stargaze just steps from your cozy bed.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 57 Days
Suggested Stay: Nayaro Alto Atacama

Big Island, Hawaii, USA

Best For: Hawaii Honeymoon 

Big Island, Hawaii, USA

The wait is finally over. Couples planning a honeymoon in Hawaii should wait out the winter, even though cold temperatures throughout the USA make it awfully tempting to head west.

April is a gorgeous month on the Big Island, with average highs around 83°F. You still may find rain on different parts of the island (there are lots of micro-climates), but overall, you’ll have plenty of nice weather for days on the green, black, and white sand beaches. 

Volcanoes National Park is a bit stormy in April, but we think it kind of adds to the atmosphere of the igneous rock and steam vents along the trails.

Enjoy a round of golf at Jack Nickolaus’s course at the Four Seasons and check out waterfalls like the 442-foot (135 m) ʻAkaka Falls in Hilo on this perfect spring honeymoon in Hawaii.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10 Days
Suggested Stay: Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Best For: Game of Thrones Honeymoon 


We’re not sure about you, but we still haven’t gotten over the romance, intrigue, and drama HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones.

If you want an atmospheric honeymoon where you can reminisce on some of your favorite moments from the show, Dubrovnik, Croatia, is the perfect honeymoon spot.

April brings mild temperatures and smaller crowds, making it perfect for touring The Red Keep (Lovrijenac Fort), Minčeta Tower, and sitting on the Iron Throne at Lokrum Island.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Sun Gardens Dubrovnik

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Best For: Overwater Bungalows 

Bora Bora

If we had to choose the perfect honeymoon image, standing hand in hand on the private terrace of your overwater bungalow takes the cake.

Where can you do this? Bora Bora, of course. Landing one of the picture-perfect honeymoon suites overlooking the cerulean waters and white sands requires planning and a generous honeymoon budget.

But if you missed shoulder season in the fall, we have good news. April is a wonderful time to book a honeymoon in Bora Bora to enjoy hikes on Mount Otemanu and pristine beaches like Matira Beach before they’re at their busiest.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10 Days
Suggested Stay: The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

Placencia, Belize

Best For: Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

Placencia, Belize

Placencia is a gorgeous area in Central America on the Caribbean side of Belize.

It’s a wonderful place for couples looking to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, with access to some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the country.

Head to Laughing Bird Caye National Park, just a 30-minute boat ride from town. It’s about as close as you’ll get to a honeymoon on a deserted island, with picture-perfect white sands, offshore coral reefs, and more tropical fish than you can count.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10-14 Days
Suggested Stay: Turtle Inn

Saint Kitts, Saint Kitts & Nevis

Best For: A Chilled-Out Beach Honeymoon 

Saint Kitts & Nevis

When we think of April honeymoon destinations, Saint Kitts is one of the first islands that come to mind. Why? It’s still warm and dry, without much risk of tropical storms to spoil your trip of a lifetime.

The small island that’s one-half of Saint Kitts & Nevis has perfect beaches, towering mountains, and enough romantic resorts and restaurants to keep you surprised and delighted throughout your stay.

Expect temperatures between 75° to 85°F degrees, light breezes, and affordable rates at hotels in this under-the-radar Caribbean honeymoon destination.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Royal St. Kitts Hotel

Tasmania, Australia

Best For: Honeymoon Wine Tasting 

Launceston in Tasmania, Australia cruise

Tasmania, Australia is a gorgeous honeymoon destination year-round and offers tons of activities and sightseeing for adventurous travelers.

But we love the idea of visiting Tasmania in autumn because it’s harvest season at many of the best wineries.

Schedule a wine tasting or dinner at Ghost Rock or Josef Chromy Wines before settling into your luxury resort at Kittawa Lodge and enjoying the hiking trails and golf courses on Kings Island just off the coast of Tasmania.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7-10 Days
Suggested Stay: Kittawa Lodge


Best For: Honeymoon Scuba Diving

Bonaire, Netherland Antilles

Caribbean honeymoons are great for couples who love swimming and snorkeling. But Bonaire is perfect for couples who want to dive a bit deeper, offering some of the best scuba diving anywhere in the world. 

We love Bonaire’s clear blue waters and laid-back resorts, many of which cater to scuba diving right from the hotel.

Try staying at The Bellafonte for luxury rooms with full kitchens and access to a dock just steps from your suite, where you can snorkel or scuba dive to your heart’s content.

Or, head a bit further to Klein Bonaire for one of the island’s best scuba diving locations to see hundreds of tropical fish swimming along the coral reef.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5 Days
Suggested Stay: The Bellafonte

Santorini, Greece

Best For: Postcard Views

Skaros rock and Firostefani village at Santorini, Greece

Even if you’ve never been to the Cyclades in Greece, you’ve likely seen the unbelievable views on IG.

Well, a honeymoon in Santorini offers those vistas IRL from the whitewashed village perched high on the hills overlooking the Aegean Sea.

We love the idea of riding the cable car above Fira, hiking up the otherworldly Skaros Rock for island views, and taking a sunset cruise near White Beach before soaking in the hot spring before the summer crowds start filling up the beaches and restaurants. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10-14 Days
Suggested Stay: Vora

Lake Louise, Canada

Best For: Honeymoon on the Ski Slopes

Lake Louise, Canada

Banff National Park is incredibly scenic year-round, but winter and spring offer love birds the chance to ski down the slopes and take in the views from above. 

April is one of the final months of ski season and can often offer excellent conditions on Sunshine or Lake Louise.

We also love spring in Lake Louise for hiking, admiring the unreal blue waters, and exploring the shops and restaurants in town.

The best part? Hotel rates are surprisingly low compared to the winter and summer.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Fairmont Château Lake Louise

Male Atoll, Maldives

Best For: Island Honeymoon 

Male Atoll, Maldives

The Maldives are home to over 1,000 islands and many of the best luxury honeymoon resorts anywhere. We love Kunfunadhoo Island because you’ll find one of our favorite hotels, Coco Bodu Hithi.

Stay at Coco Bodu Hithi on Male Atoll for a week of relaxation, wonderful weather, and plenty of outdoor activities.

Couples love massages at the spa, romantic dinners overlooking the Indian Ocean and the gorgeous beaches, and scuba diving near the shipwrecks at West Rock and Maldives Victory Wreck.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Coco Bodu Hithi

Hakuba, Japan

Best For: Unforgettable Honeymoon in the Mountains

Hakuba, Japan

Hakuba is one of Japan’s premiere skiing destinations, and you’ll still find great snow in April. But we also love visiting the picturesque mountain village in the spring for its luxury resorts, cool architecture, and museums.

But visiting Hakuba is all about hitting the slopes, with 10 different ski resorts offering hundreds of runs.

Our favorite? Happo One is the biggest and best, giving honeymooners 6,000 feet of elevation and over a dozen ski runs to choose from.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Hakuba Amber Resort

Practical Tips for Planning Your April Honeymoon 

Look for Unexpected Deals

Many of the best honeymoon destinations in April are far more affordable than at other times of the year. Plan ahead and look for deals on honeymoon packages and suites, as you never know the deals you may find. 

Check the Forecast Before You Pack 

April is a bit unpredictable. Many destinations are in a transition phase from winter to summer or dry season to the rainiest months. Check the weather before getting on the plane to avoid unexpected surprises. 

Buy Travel Insurance

We are always all about adding travel insurance to your trip. But with the possibility of potentially unpredictable weather, we think it’s especially important to add trip cancellation coverage just in case.
