Take a Dip in Your Own Private Infinity Pool

If you’re going to want to splash out on any aspect of your Caribbean honeymoon, it’s likely be your room, so you may as well make it the most awe-inspiring room you’ve ever stayed in. Jade Mountain in St Lucia can easily deliver on that, with a range of ‘sanctuaries’ that feature private infinity pools and commanding views over to the majestic Piton Mountains. Impressive or what?

Enjoy a Couples Massage

The Caribbean has no shortage of exceptional spa facilities within its many resorts, but some are more luxurious than others. The huge spa complex within the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, for example, can set you up with a host of indulgent spa treatments for two, like a Caribbean-fusion massage using lemongrass and coconut milk.

Stay in a Private Cottage Carved into the Caves

Never mind a private plunge pool; take it one step further with your own direct sea access. At The Caves resort in Jamaica, a cliffside retreat, each suite has breathtaking views of the water, and some even have direct access to the caves and grottoes below. Dive right in to the Blue Hole –  natural opening in the caves that leads to the glistening sea below.

Dine Al-Fresco at a Clifftop Restaurant

The Cliff at The Cap is a creative French and West Indian restaurant with one special feature: its open air terrace is situated on a dramatic clifftop with spectacular sea views. Located within the smart Cap Maison hotel in northern St Lucia, even non-residents can dine at this spectacular restaurant, whose views extend out to Martinique.

Planning the Perfect Caribbean Honeymoon - What to See and Do - Diving

Splash out on a Spot of World-Class Scuba Diving

For a bonding experience like no other, book yourself onto a scuba diving trip in Bonaire, home to some of the world’s most pristine coral reefs. If you are staying at a dedicated dive resort, the staff will be able to make all of the arrangements for your excursion, but almost all of the hotels on the island offer PADI dive centers or dive tour operations.

Hike to a Remote Beach

There is no beach more apt for a post-wedding vacation than Honeymoon Beach in the Caneel Bay Resort in the USVIs. This beach is just one of seven that make up the resort, but access is limited, meaning that the beach is secluded and often quiet. Hike the short-yet-scenic Lind Point Trail to get to the beach, and you’ll be rewarded with more than just white sand and turquoise waters at the end.

Watch the Sunset over the Loop

The Loop is a five-mile stretch of road that runs along the southwestern end of Peter Island in the BVIs. From around 5pm to 6.30pm every day you can witness a true Caribbean sunset from the most spectacular vantage point on the island – and the island’s private resort staff will even drop you off with your own fruit and cheese platter to enjoy while the sun sets!
