An island country in the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji, is considered one of the most exotic destinations, not only for families  but for honeymooners too! Mostly known for the crystal clear blue seas and the white sandy beaches it’s a perfect place to go and celebrate a marriage. Scuba diving is a common activity there as it has many coral reefs, so if you and your partner are into that, you could try it! The top attractions there are Kula Eco Park in Sigatoka, the Fiji Museum in Suva and Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool.

We all know about Hawaii. It’s one of the American States, but it’s in Oceania. If you are not fond of crowded seasons you should avoid the major holidays, especially in the winter months. The main attractions are the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, the ʻIolani Palace, U.S.S. Arizona Memorial and the Manoa Falls. There are plenty of beautiful resorts to choose from and I think this will be the most difficult part.

Virgin islands
