The best June honeymoon destinations

1 Fiji

One of my favourite options for a honeymoon in June is Fiji. This is a country that has everything you could want from a paradise honeymoon. It’s one of the world’s best tropical destinations where you can relax on palm-fringed, white sandy beaches and enjoy your own slice of heaven.

June is one of the best times to visit Fiji when it’s the dry, peak season – it’s an amazing time for experiencing all the tropical vibes. Plus, it’s when you can swim with manta rays, which is a really magical and unforgettable experience. 

If you want to stay in one island hotel or inclusive resort for your entire honeymoon, you’ll find incredible options in Fiji – some even have overwater bungalows.

You could also go island hopping if you want added adventure. There’s so much to experience and so many romantic things to do in Fiji that it’s a brilliant option for a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon.

2 Italy

If you’re dreaming of a European honeymoon, June is the perfect month. Not only is this when things start to hot up on the continent, but you also avoid the peak summer rush that comes in July-August. There are so many brilliant countries in Europe, but where could be more romantic than Italy?!

There’s a reason why Italy is a favourite honeymoon destination. This is a country that boasts so much – it’s enchanting, romantic and has some of the prettiest and most fascinating sites to explore.

Whether you’re dreaming of photogenic coastal settings like Cinque Terre or Amalfi, or fairytale cities like Venice, Rome or Florence, Italy has you covered!

There’s no doubt that Italy is an amazing country to explore. Even though it’s relatively small, there are so many different settings, so you’ll find the perfect honeymoon for you. If you have the time, I recommend visiting a few different spots across Italy to experience more of its charm.

From the rolling hills of Tuscany to the Italian Lakes and ancient cities, there are so many romantic places in Italy to fall in love with.

3 France

Another brilliant European honeymoon destination for June is France. Like all European countries, there’s so much to explore and experience in France. It’s a really romantic option for a honeymoon and June is one of the best months to take it all in.

Paris is an obvious choice for a honeymoon in France. Known as the City of Love, Paris is one of the best honeymoon destinations in Europe for city-loving couples. If you have cash for a luxury getaway, Paris also ticks the right boxes – you’ll find so many gorgeous hotels that are extra special.

Away from the capital, France has plenty of other romantic spots for a dream honeymoon. From picturesque chateaux in the Loire Valley to photogenic vineyards, charming towns and glittering beaches, there’s something for everyone.

If you’re dreaming of the coast, June is a great time to head to the French Riviera. You could also visit gorgeous rural Provence when mid-June marks the start of the lavender season.

Hotel recommendations: Le Bristol Paris, Hotel Crillon le Brave

4 United Kingdom

Unlike some other European options, the United Kingdom might not be a first choice for a honeymoon, but it definitely has to be on your list. There are so many romantic places to visit in the UK as well as the most amazing cities. So whether you’re a Brit like me and want a minimoon, or you’re travelling from overseas, there’s a perfect spot for a loved-up break.

If you want a city honeymoon, London is one of the world’s best capitals and has so much to offer. You’ll be able to fill your days with everything – from amazing dining experiences to West End shows and sightseeing. 

The UK is also home to so many rural spots that are perfect for a honeymoon – from coastal Cornwall to the Cotswolds, Lake District and Scottish Highlands. Visiting Scotland and the city of Edinburgh is another top choice for a honeymoon in June. With its cobblestone streets and historic old town, Edinburgh is bursting with charm.

June is a great time to explore the best of the city and further afield in Scotland. You might not avoid rain (it’s Britain after all!), but you might be lucky with gorgeous summertime days.

Hotel recommendations: The Goring, London, The Balmoral, Barnsley House

5 United States of America

Another of the best honeymoon destinations in June is the USA. As such a big country, you have so many settings to choose from. But, regardless of where you pick, June is one of the most popular months to visit the United States when the weather is warming up.

If you’re an active couple, the USA’s National Parks like Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and Yosemite are great in June for pleasant weather for exploring and hiking. They offer a really beautiful and romantic experience for a back-to-nature honeymoon.

Elsewhere in the country, you could visit San Francisco and Los Angeles on the western coast, or head east for New York. There are so many options that a US road trip is also a fun and unique honeymoon option. You’ll be able to take in so many different sights that you’re guaranteed an unforgettable adventure. 

Hotel recommendations: Crosby Street Hotel, Post Ranch Inn, Amangiri

6 Greece

Gorgeous Greece is a bucket list destination so it’s no surprise it’s on a list of best honeymoon destinations for June. June is an amazing time to visit Greece before the scorching heat of summer kicks in. You’ll be blessed with balmy days to explore the best of this beautiful country.

If you want to go island hopping, the Cyclades are a good bet at this time of year. This is where you’ll find islands like Mykonos, Santorini and Naxos.

Crete is perfect in June too and is a wonderful destination for a honeymoon. As the largest Greek island it has so much for newlyweds to enjoy – from boat trips and beach days to hiking and visiting archaeological sites.  

June is also a quieter month than July or August in Greece. And while you probably won’t escape all the crowds on the popular islands, it can offer a much more pleasant experience at this time of year.

Hotel recommendations: Calilo, Canaves Oia Epitome, Daios Cove

7 Bali, Indonesia

Bali had to be included on a list of the best honeymoon destinations in June. This island is renowned for being one of the world’s best destinations (and a top honeymoon spot in Southeast Asia) and it has so much to offer. June also falls in the island’s dry season so it’s an amazing time for enjoying the beach and soaking up the tropical vibes.

This is a destination that’s exceptionally photogenic and is amazing for couples who want to get out and explore. You’ll be able to take in everything from lush jungles and rice terraces to beautiful temples and religious sites.

8 Canada

If you’re an outdoorsy couple and want to experience the most gorgeous natural scenery, make sure you add Canada to your list! Canada is one of the best places to honeymoon in June when you’ll get to experience the start of summer.

As a country, Canada is huge and offers lots of different opportunities. But, my recommendation would be to head to the western regions like British Columbia and Alberta for your honeymoon in June. These two provinces are beyond beautiful and are brilliant for a back-to-nature honeymoon. 

Depending on where you’re travelling from, Vancouver is usually a good starting point for a Canadian honeymoon – it’s a pretty city that’s amazing to explore.

If you want to hire a car, you’ll also be able to take in the breathtaking scenery in the surrounding area with mountains, forests and lakes. A road trip from Vancouver to Calgary via Banff National Park will take in the best wild scenery.

Hotel recommendations: Loden Vancouver, Fairmont Banff Springs

9 Balearic Islands, Spain

There’s a lot to love about Spain’s Balearic Islands and they make an amazing June honeymoon destination. Boasting glorious golden beaches, picturesque fishing villages and amazing scenery, these little islands pack a punch.

Islands in this area include Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza. And, if you visit these destinations in June, you’ll have sunny weather with temperatures that are perfect for the beach.

Given their proximity, each island has photogenic landscapes and the most beautiful coastal scenery, but they have slightly different vibes. My pick for an amazing honeymoon in the Balearics would be Ibiza. Whether you’re a party-loving couple or you fancy some zen, this is an island that delivers.

Away from its iconic beach clubs and bars, you’ll find gorgeous rural scenery, super pretty towns and quieter spots that are amazing for a romantic honeymoon. There’s so much to see and do in Ibiza, too – from boat trips and watersports to hiking and relaxing on the beach. It’s the perfect combination.

Hotel recommendations: OKU Ibiza, Ca Na Xica, ME Ibiza

10 Kenya

I’m a huge fan of the safari honeymoon and Kenya is an exceptional choice. Kenya ticks the right boxes for a honeymoon in June – it’s the beginning of the country’s dry season and it’s a month where you might have a chance of catching the Wildebeest Migration

Kenya is recognised as one of the world’s premier safari destinations. The Masai Mara is the most famous reserve and is a setting that offers so many once-in-a-lifetime, bucket list experiences.

An African safari honeymoon is easily one of the best options if you want a truly unforgettable getaway… In Kenya, you’ll be able to spot the Big 5, learn about Maasai culture and take a hot air balloon ride to see the wilderness from above.

Not only will you get to witness some of the world’s best wildlife in its natural habitat, but you also have the opportunity to stay in a cosy and romantic safari lodge. These gorgeous lodges are next-level goals where you can wake up to the sounds and sights of nature.

Hotel recommendations: Sala’s Camp, Mahali Mzuri

11 Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Bora Bora is one of those places that’s synonymous with honeymoons. A South Pacific jewel, this island destination is an amazing choice in June for couples looking for nothing more than to relax in paradise.

12 Hawaii, USA

Hawaii is another of the best places to honeymoon in June. Famed for its dramatic scenery, golden beaches and fascinating culture, Hawaii has a ton to offer. June is high season and it’s one of the state’s driest months, so it’s a perfect time for enjoying the best of its tropical scenery.

There’s so much to love about a honeymoon to Hawaii. This is a destination that has all the paradise vibes and some of the world’s most incredible landscapes. You have a choice of islands and settings if you visit Hawaii. All are brilliant, but a good choice for a honeymoon is the island of Kauai.

Kauai is considered one of the prettiest of Hawaii’s islands – it has beautiful beaches, lush rainforests and jaw-dropping scenery. It can also feel a little quieter than some of the others so it’s a nice spot for some seclusion. 

Hotel recommendations: Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay

13 Namibia

If you’re looking for a honeymoon destination that has the most incredible natural scenery and wildlife, Namibia needs to be on your list. This is an African country that has so much to offer so it’s a really unique choice for a honeymoon – and June is in the peak season so it’s a great time to visit.

As a top wildlife destination, a safari in Namibia is a must – Etosha National Park is the country’s most popular spot. It can be cold in the mornings on safari in Namibia in June, but it’s a month that promises some of the best game viewing.

As well as incredible safaris, there are loads of other things to do in Namibia, too. This country has iconic landscapes – it’s home to Africa’s largest canyon, the oldest desert and has impressive sand dunes.

With so much to take in, renting a car for a Namibia road trip is an amazing option in June. You can also stay in a luxury desert lodge for a magical experience.

It’s not surprising that Croatia has become such a popular European destination. This country has so many exceptional settings. It’s a picture-perfect choice with fascinating old towns and cities, as well as incredible beaches and islands. It’s perfect for couples who want to have variety on their honeymoon.

Rovinj is a photogenic city that’s bursting with charm. You could also visit the islands of Zlarin, Hvar or Dugi Otok.

Turkey is a beautiful country that has so many amazing attractions. Thanks to its diverse scenery and its Asian and European influences, it’s a unique place that brags a lot. In June, the days are usually hot and sunny, so it’s also an ideal choice if you want a warm getaway.

Inland and away from the coast, Cappadocia is one of the most magical places to have on your honeymoon radar. This fairytale region is famed for its incredible landscapes.

Over in South America, Peru is an amazing choice for a honeymoon in June. If you’re intrepid travellers and are craving a honeymoon adventure, Peru needs to be on your list. This is a destination that has a million different offerings and is definitely bucket list worthy.

June is the country’s dry season so it’s an amazing time for hiking. The most famous site for many is Machu Picchu and the iconic Inca Trail, but Peru offers loads more than that, too.

If you want an alternative to Machu Picchu and something really remote, the trek to Choquequirao is a brilliant option. Peru’s cities are also great to explore – the capital of Lima is a perfect spot for foodies.
