Based on popularity, Bali, New York and the Maldives are the most popular destinations. When it comes to average monthly searches, New York takes the top spot.

With stunning beaches, beautiful scenery, sunshine and culture, it’s no surprise that Bali has taken the top spot when it comes to destinations. It’s a location that has everything, whether you want to get active, explore or just chill out and enjoy the location. The hashtag #balihoneymoon has been used almost 90,000 on Instagram, as people show off their snaps from their post-wedding travel. It’s a long journey, at around 18 to 19 hours from the UK, but it’s oh-so-worth-it.


The iconic Big Apple is a must-see for travellers around the world, so it makes sense that honeymooners would head to the city that never sleeps, too. With plenty of sights to see, activities to get involved in, and romantic locations from TV and film, it’s a great post-wedding destination. Plus there’s some seriously fancy accommodation in the city. The flight’s around seven to eight hours from the UK, making it the shortest journey in the top three.


Made up of tons of tiny islands, the Maldives are picture-perfect and full of hideaways and gorgeous resorts for honeymooners. When it comes to private beaches, vibrant sea life, and iconic overwater villas, you really can’t get much better than this cluster of islands in the Indian Ocean, known for its breathtaking maldives over water villas. It can take 10 to 13 hours to get to from the UK, plus the time it takes to get to your specific island destination.

When it comes to the destinations that receive the most love on social media, Saint Lucia and The Seychelles rank the highest with 100% of reactions about these islands being positive. Hawaii comes in close as the third most-loved destination, with 95% of reactions being completely positive.

Hawaii’s allure for honeymooners extends beyond its stunning landscapes and vibrant culture; it’s an ideal destination for couples seeking adventure and intimacy. Picture this: cruising along the scenic coastal roads of Maui or Oahu on a scooter, the wind tousling your hair as you and your partner explore hidden gems and breathtaking vistas. As you plan your honeymoon, consider the myriad of experiences awaiting you in Hawaii, from sunset beach picnics to snorkeling adventures in crystal-clear waters.

For honeymooners seeking insider tips and inspiration, exploring articles from local experts can be invaluable. Websites like Scooter Rental Hawaii’s blog offer a treasure trove of information on the best routes to take, lesser-known spots to discover, and even romantic scooter-friendly activities to enjoy as a couple. Imagine stumbling upon a secluded cove or a charming roadside café while following the recommendations shared in these articles, adding an extra layer of magic to your Hawaiian adventure. So, rev up your scooter and embark on a journey of love and exploration amidst Hawaii’s unparalleled beauty.
