Where are the most bizarre places folks have honeymooned…ever? Here are our favorite weird honeymoon destinations.
We all know a pretty bed-and-breakfast when we see one, or a charming waterfall. We wouldn’t mind resting our heads in a yurt and glamping on the central coast. But where are the oddest, most random places & landmarks lovers go to revel in their newfound love? Behold, our curation of the strangest and raddest honeymoons in the world. Why drink wine at a seaside resort… when you can walk around naked for two weeks on your own private heart-shaped island in Australia? Well actually both options sound great, but we digress…
“Brothels, Bites, and Booze” In San Diego, California
Get an in-depth look at the infamous red light district and the women who ruled the streets at the time. See what drew them to this lifestyle and the price they paid to be amongst the few financially independent women of the time. Scandalous tales of the most popular brothels and Prohibition-era gangsters will no doubt leave you thirsty.
Art Lovers: Las Pozas in Xilitla, Mexico
Las Pozas (“the pools” in Spanish) is a collection of surrealist structures created by Edward James. James left his English aristocratic family and childhood mansion to create a fantasyland amid central Mexico’s jungle. The 20 acres also include a staircase to nowhere. Yeah, let’s just chew on that for a minute.
“Blue Lagoon” Lovers: Makepeace Island in Australia
This Australian resort is so private that once the trip is booked, you and your love will be the only guests on the entire island. You set your own dress code on this surreal, heart-shaped island. If this sounds cool, also check out Sable Island in Canada, famous for its wild horses…but you’ll need permission from the Canadian coast guard to visit (which kind of makes us want to go more).
Scary Movie Lovers: “Gravedigger Ghost Tour” in Ireland
Travel to a church, a jail, and a pub, while being chased by creepishly realistic “gravediggers.” There really is something for everyone…
Nature Lovers: “Leshan Giant Buddha” in Sichuan, China
The Leshan was carved out of a mountainside in the 8th century. At 233 feet high, it is one of the largest images of the Buddha in the world. You could be one of those fit, adventurous hikers…we can see it now.
Music Loves: “Portmeirion” in Wales
This place is still a Downtown Abbey-esque wonderland, where legends like Paul McCartney and Frank Lloyd Wright have chilled. Plus, this rad musical festival happens every year.
Well, go on then, it’s your honeymoon. Indulge your oddest desires.
