Honeymoon Destinations in June

Where to go on Honeymoon in June 2022

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert By Jane Anderson, Editor

June is among the most popular months for a wedding, and it’s always a wonderful time of year to go on honeymoon. The weather in all those romantic Mediterranean destinations is perfect and because this isn’t yet technically high season, there are plenty of bargains. You’ll also find attractive deals in the Caribbean.

June Honeymoons in the Mediterranean

Mallorca is at it most fragrant in June. The orange blossom is still out and everything’s fresh and calm yet there’ll be a buzz in the bars and restaurants as the new season gets underway. Expect temperatures of 25ºC and 10 hours of daily sunshine. Hire a villa for two with Vintage Travel for the ultimate in privacy.

In Ibiza you can soak up the bohemian vibe before the summer crowds descend. I’ve found some wonderful places to stay far from the busy resorts, including this romantic finca and this boho agriturismo.

June is arguably the perfect month for Cyprus. Temperatures hit 30ºC but it’s not stifling, as it can be in July and August, and you can still find special offers at hotels and apartments.

Few places are as romantic as the tiny volcanic Greek island of Santorini where chic white-washed hotels are carved into the steep rock faces. One of my personal favourites is Grace Santorini. Other dreamy escapes in Greece include Naxos, and the tiny hidden gem of Onar on the isle of Andros.

Away from the big resorts, you’ll find some gorgeous corners of Corfu, and none is lovelier than the MarBella Nido, a small luxury adult-only resort. Stay in a suite with private pool and enjoy the full-service beach or upgrade to a Signature Suite with special gifts and treats.

Simpson Travel has a lovely collection of adult-only hotels in Greece and Turkey that would be near impossible to find on Google. Take a look at the Purple Apricot Hotel on Paxos and the delightful Kalkan Regency in Turkey.

If you prefer the idea of self-sufficiency, you could rent a villa for two in Greece. Or enjoy the exclusive luxury of a luxury yacht charter. You can book a cabin or the whole boat.

Other Mediterranean honeymoon destinations that are perfect in June include the French island of Corsica which has a great selection of hotels, villas and apartments.

The Aegean and Lycian coasts of Turkey are warming up nicely but are still quiet and lush. A great option is the Mandarin Boutique Hotel, a romantic adults-only hideaway with just eight rooms set in unspoilt countryside near the resorts of Fethiye and Oludeniz. It’s very affordable and each double room has a kingsize four-poster bed and Jacuzzi for two.

In Italy, the Amalfi Coast is a classic honeymoon destination combining old-school elegance with faultless service and fine dining. Stay in one of these wonderful hotels.

It’s also a lovely time of year to enjoy the sparkling waters of the Italian Lakes where you’ll find classic hotels on the shores of Lake ComoLake Garda and Lake Iseo.

If white sand beaches are more your style, head to the stunning island of Sardinia and stay at one of these fabulously romantic hotels.

Other Honeymoon Destinations in Europe

If cities, art museums and authentic restaurants are your thing, how about combining a couple of classic destinations, perhaps Seville, Cordoba and Granada in Andalucia or Venice, Florence and Rome in Italy. If food’s your obsession, combine Bologna, Parma and Ravenna in Italy’s gastronomic heart.

You could combine you love of food, wine and the great outdoors on one of these walking and cycling honeymoons for foodies. You will walk or pedal through gently rolling countryside, visiting wineries and eating picnics, while your luggage is transported each day from one hotel to the next. Destinations include Andalucia, Alsace, Provence and Umbria.

June is a wonderful time to be in Paris and it’s not too hot (21ºC, 7 hours of sunshine). The key is to pick the right hotel – I recommend the five-star boutique Balzac off the Champs-Elysées, and the charming Relais Christine on the Left Bank.

Alternatively, head north for a very different honeymoon enjoying the  midnight sun in Iceland. You can soak in natural hot tubs, see geysers and volcanoes and even stay up all night at hip bars in one of the world’s most exciting and beautiful destinations. Best places to stay include the funky Hotel Marina in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital, and the Hotel Ranga, which is set on the banks of a salmon river with a backdrop of glaciers and mountains.

Or if you fancy a beach break but want to look beyond the Med, there are some great island escapes off the coast of north Africa. Discover volcanic landscapes and star gazing with a luxury honeymoon in Tenerife – the adults-only Red Level at Gran Melia Palacio de Isora has oceanfront villas with a private pool, while Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque is home to nine different restaurants, as well as an observatory.

The Portuguese island of Madeira is another great option for an active honeymoon: not as hot as the Canary Islands this month, now’s the time to go climbing and whale watching, with a range of luxury hotels to come back to. Belmond Reid’s Palace is one of Madeira’s most famous, or check into one of the historic Quintas, converted 19th-century manor houses. Quinta da Bela Vista and Quinta da Casa Branco get my vote.

UK Honeymoon Destinations in June

Beach or countryside? If you enjoy self-catering, try a seaside hideaway such as Barnacles in Fowey, Cornwall. Here’s a collection of romantic properties for two across the UK.

If you love the wild countryside, I recommend these honeymoon hideaways in Wales from Sugar & Loaf. Best options include The Wood Shack in Abergavenny, with a gorgeous outside space and wood-burning stove, and Eathelin in Tenbury Wells, with private hot tub and free-standing copper bathtub.

Expect long sunny days in Scotland where the welcome will be warm and the countryside stunning. I love this self-drive luxury honeymoon that kicks off at a five-star hotel in Edinburgh and includes stays at a lodge on Loch Ness and a private island off the coast of Argyll. You can also upgrade to a classic car – how about a Mini Cooper or Austin Healey? See more honeymoon ideas in Scotland.

For romance it’s hard to beat the Lake District, and there are few spots more enticing than Gilpin Lake House set in the private grounds of a Relais & Châteaux hotel. It has six spacious suites, a lakeside spa and indoor swimming pool.

You can host a big wedding in the UK by renting one of these grand houses including Torridge Country House in Devon and Pitcalzean House in the Scottish Highlands, which sleeps up to 37 and has a party barn, cinema room and children’s den.

Long Haul Beach Honeymoons in June

The Caribbean is perfect in June: prices are low, the weather is fine (30ºC and 8 hours of sunshine) and there are few crowds. The best hotels for honeymooners include Anse Chastanet on St Lucia and Jamaica Inn near Ocho Rios. If you want an all-inclusive resort, head to the couples-only Sandals which also offers free weddings.

Two of the best-value Caribbean destinations are Mexico and the Dominican Republic  where you’ll find five-star hotels at sensible prices with great weather (32ºC, 7 hours of sunshine). See a selection of the best honeymoons and wedding ideas.

If you crave a “pure beach” experience, tiny Anguilla offers miles of endless blinding white sand and crystal clear seas. You can also dine around at stylish beachfront restaurants.

For something really intimate and full of character, this collection of the best small hotels and resorts in the Caribbean has some real hidden gems.

Alternatively, you could set sail on a tall ship to explore the small ports of the Caribbean that are inaccessible to big cruise ships. Star Clippers combines the romance of sailing with luxury accommodation, beach barbecues, deck-top sundowners and watersports organised by the crew.

Many destinations in Asia are wet in June but Koh Samui (31ºC, 6 hours of sunshine) is an exception. This charming island in the Gulf of Thailand has a superb collection of romantic luxury hotels.

It’s also a good time to be in Vietnam – expect 33ºC and 6 hours of sunshine in the capital, Hanoi. You could kick back on a slow-paced Cambodia to Vietnam trip which takes you to the Angkor temples then by boat along the Mekong River from Phnom Penh to Saigon.

Sri Lanka works well if you avoid the south-west coast. This 12-day East Coast Sri Lanka Journey is designed for summer honeymoons and includes the remote unspoilt beaches of Passekudah and Trincomalee.

Bali (30ºC, 9 hours of sunshine) is also a great choice in June. My recommendations include the laid-back haven of Puri Ganesha and the great-value Gajah Mina Beach Resorton on a surf beach in the island’s south-west.

June is also ideal for discovering the South Pacific – it’s one of the driest months in French Polynesia, with average temperatures of 27ºC and 7 hours of sunshine. Discover more than one island on a cruise in Tahiti, with the chance to visit Moorea, Bora Bora, Taha’a, Tikehau and Rangiroa too. Or for a Polynesian-inspired honeymoon, Bora Bora Pearl Beach is perfect. See more ideas for honeymoons in Tahiti here.

Adventure, Safari, Mountains

June is a lovely time for a two-centre honeymoon in Africa. Head to Kenya (22ºC; 7 hours of daily sunshine) where low season prices can still be found and the landscapes are gloriously lush following the rains. A popular combination with a safari in Kenya is a luxury beach stay in the Seychelles (25ºC). Try this 12-night Safari and Beach combination featuring three nights at Kichwa Tembo in the Masai Mara followed by a stopover in Nairobi at The Norfolk Hotel and ending with seven nights at the Carana Beach Hotel in the Seychelles.

The dry season is beginning in Tanzania when this month is one of the best to see the Great Migration in the Serengeti. Stay at the Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp, or Sanctuary Kusini for butler service along with your animal-spotting. Finish with the white sands and Indian Ocean views of Zanzibar.

It’s the dry (and cool) season in Namibia (20ºC, 10 hours of sunshine) and the best time of year for spotting game, including the endangered Black Rhino. Stay at intimate lodges and camps, climb the world’s tallest sand dunes, take a hot air balloon ride over the Namib Desert and visit the salt pans of Etosha. This classic fly-in tour is perfect for honeymooners, or you could take the self-drive option.

Botswana is home to some of the most luxurious camps in Africa. It’s not just about indulgence, but also up-close encounters with big game, whether you’re floating silently through the Okavango Delta in a mokoro canoe, or exploring the beautiful Chobe National Park. See more of my safari honeymoon ideas.

If it’s beaches you want, head to Mozambique (25ºC, 8 hours of sunshine) which is an inspired alternative to the Seychelles and Maldives. This idyllic island of silky white beaches is perfect for boat trips on sailing dhows, barefoot luxury lodges and snorkelling in turquoise waters.

And while it’s winter in Mauritius, you can still expect temperatures of around 25ºC as well as some of the year’s driest days. For sheer luxury, Trou aux Biches is one of the island’s best hotels

Off the opposite coast of Africa, Cape Verde is an unusual island alternative. The Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort is perfect if you’re looking for sun, sand and style, or you could get away from it all on neighbouring island Boa Vista at the Spinguera Eco Lodge. If you can’t choose between the 10 different islands, check out the island-hopping itineraries.

In South America, Peru’s winter also sees its driest months – this is the best time to combine beach, jungle and a trip to the ancient city of Machu Picchu.
