Caribbean Islands Make The Knot’s Best Honeymoon Destinations List
Guess which Caribbean Islands made The Knot’s best honeymoon destinations?
If you guessed Jamaica, Barbados and St. Lucia, you’re absolutely correct! The Knot put together a rather comprehensive list of the hottest honeymoon destinations based on categories such as “Best Beach, Most Adventurous and Best Bargain”. We’re sharing why we totally agree with these Caribbean islands being labelled some of the hottest in the world!
Here’s what The Knot had to say about Jamaica:
“Best Bargain: Jamaica
Why go: JetBlue and other low-cost airlines fly direct to Jamaica, making this island escape within easy reach. Come for soul-stirring reggae, jerk chicken, rugged cliffs, blue lagoons and very laid-back locals.”
Why WeddingMoons’ agrees: Jamaica is a gorgeous location no more than 1 hour and 20 mins from Miami, Florida of turquoise waters, lush greenery, tons of activities (zip-lining, river rafting, waterfall climbing, and the list goes on) and a world-renowned seven-mile stretch beach. Not to mention Jamaica is about to become the only Caribbean island that has over-water bungalows! Whether you visit charming Montego Bay, greenly luxurious Ocho Rios, exclusive Whitehouse or the infamous Negril, you’re sure to have the honeymoon of your island dreams.
“Most Adventurous: St. Lucia
Why go: There’s more to this island of emerald vistas than just good looks. Beaches, rainforests, coral reefs, the iconic twin Piton mountains and a “drive-in” volcano will rev up adventure-seekers’ motors.
What to do: Cycle through the jungle with Bike St. Lucia. Take a mud bath at the smoldering Sulphur Springs—the gunk is said to make you look younger. At the very least, it’s good for a laugh with your guy.”
Why WeddingMoons’ agrees: What makes Saint Lucia such a popular and exotic location to us is the interesting mix of Caribbean culture with a decidedly French influence. Found in the local accent, the cuisine, town names and treasured landmarks (Les Pitons are infamous worldwide) , French lingers throughout the island. While there’s no doubt St. Lucia is an AdventureMoon waiting to happen; it’s also a terribly romantic destination. It’s sunsets are filled with fiery passion!

“Best Beaches: Barbados
Why go: Rihanna’s beautiful birthplace offers more than 70 miles of sun-drenched beaches and a warm blend of English, African and West Indian influences that separates it from more vanilla seaside spots.”
Why WeddingMoons’ agrees: While we don’t know Rihanna personally (call us Ri Ri!) we do know Barbados and the splendor it holds. Barbados may just be the hottest wedding and honeymoon destination of 2015! With a spectacular landscape that changes dramatically from one town to the next, Barbados offers activities and entertainment for nature lovers, club-goers, and adventurers alike. Also, there are monkeys – who doesn’t like monkeys?
Barbados is also set to become the newest Sandals Resorts destination! Sandals Barbados promises to be an elegant and romantic resort set along the South Coast hotspot with stunning beachfront, colorful nightlife and excellent restaurants and lounges.
