We are unsure as to where we want to go on a honeymoon! We are thinking Bora Bora or places around there but just not to sure.....Any ideas on where to go that is secluded and relaxing and what is there to do like trekking, kayaking, snorkelling & eating etc...
Bora Bora as in Ibiza? Not sure that's an "ideal honeymoon" resort...
The Maldives is pretty much the quintessential honeymoon paradise. I went there to celebrate an engagement and it was almost entirely set up for honeymoon couples. Desert Islands surrounded by crystal blue lagoons which drop off into the Indian Ocean. Diving with the most amazing sea life, turtle watching, boat trips to take couples to their very own deserted islands, you get dropped off in the morning with a romantic picnic and supplies for the day and left completely on your own to do as you please and then picked up again just as the sun is setting... Our hotel had amazing food and would set up romantic tables on the beach for anyone that wanted so you could sit under the stars and have the perfect dinner... You won't get much trekking done unless you do laps of your hotel / island but there's plenty of watersports and if you're on Honeymoon I'm sure you'll find plenty to occupy yourselves in private!! over 11 years ago
I'm guessing you are asking about French Polynesia given the heading...
Bora Bora is VERY expensive and very much overdone... If you are looking for something just as beautiful, cheaper, more... authentic and remote then look at some of the outer islands. We spent some time in the Tuamotu islands and fell in love with Fakarava. It's an atoll which has a wonderful lagoon and decent accomodation. There is a resort on the atoll but there are also a few very good pensions. We stayed in a coral floored hut with the lagoon waters lapping at the back door.
We stayed at the pension Paparara:
which has now teamed up with the dive group we went out with when we were there. Great place run by great people.
This place looks pretty cool too...
Anyways, that's what I think!!! over 11 years ago
