4.) Sunset cocktails anywhere on the Caribbean Sea-side of the Island
Barbados has many fantastic hotels with glamorous lounges, from which to view a spectacular Caribbean sunset. Try any drink with the favorite spirit of the island Rum.
5.) Catamaran Cruise on the Caribbean
Picture yourself relaxing on the deck on a luxurious catamaran while gliding over the sparkling crystal-clear Caribbean, past beautiful palm-fringed beaches. The Catamaran is anchored for lunch where visitors can enjoy a sumptuous meal prepared some of the Caribbean’s top chefs. After lunch, enjoy snorkeling in the light blue waters.
6.) Surfing the Soup Bowl at Bathsheba
The Soup Bowl in Bathsheba on the North East Atlantic coast as having some of the best surfing in the Caribbean. The Soup Bowl comes alive when the swells arrive from the North or North East, and break over a shallow reef, producing the perfect barrel or “tube” that surfers relish so much.

The fringes and reefs found off Barbados’ coast blossom with sponge, coral & plant life. The barrier reefs, located approximately one mile off-shore, contain large coral heads that form the habitat for thousands of beautiful fish and larger marine creatures like Turtles and Seahorses. Man-made Shipwrecks have created fascinating habitats for marine life and can also be found off the shores of Barbados.
10.) Relax and taken in the Sun and Sand at Crane Beach
There is nothing better than getting a large fluffy beach towel from your suite, in the pristine Crane Hotel. Crane Beach has been named as one of the “10 best beaches in the World” by the television show, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”.

The Cliff is neatly perched above the lapping waves of the Caribbean Sea and is lit by fiery lanterns that burn brightly high above the tables.

Italy is such a romantic country and the Amalfi Coast is a perfect romantic honeymoon that offers something for everyone. Amalfi is in the Campania region of Italy and is a UNESCO World Heritage site covering 34 miles.
Arguably they number one thing to do is drive the coast from Sorrento to Salerno. However by “drive” I suggest hiring a driver or taking the bus if you are on a budget. My husband wanted to drive it himself and white knuckled the whole time and was so busy driving he didn’t enjoy it at all. The roads are EXTREMELY narrow, curvy and hug a cliff. At one point, he had to pull in his side mirror to barely get by the car on the other side!
Personal recommendation: We stopped at Ristorante Torre Normanna in Maiori for a scenic lunch break. The food was fantastic and you can’t beat the view. And if you are considering a destination wedding – you could even have your reception there!
Another option for seeing the coast is a tour by boat. It’s a great way to get to see the coast from a different perspective. If you are driving parking is a nightmare and the boats can drop you off to explore Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello without the hassle.
Another boat trip you don’t want to miss is a tour out to Capri. Where you’ll get to see so many beautiful grottos where the azure colors are breathtaking. Once on Capri, be sure to stop and have an afternoon Spritz in one of the cafes.
While we are on the topic of cocktails, Sorrento is world famous for their lemons and you have to try the limoncello while here. We did a foodie walking tour that was fun and included a stop at one of the producers. When you need an afternoon pick up you won’t have any trouble finding an espresso and be sure to try some gelato!
Spring and early fall are the best time to visit. Summer is overcrowded and late fall into winter can be cold and rainy. Whenever you choose to go, you can be sure a honeymoon along the Amalfi Coast is truly “la dolce vita”!
