1. Tahiti, French Polynesia and Fiji
The South Pacific is perhaps the quintessential honeymoon spot. Geographically, the location of Tahiti – far flung from any mainland, a real trip to get to – makes it perfect for honeymooners trying to spend special time together, alone. @PacificIslands provides information on the Pacific Islands more generally, and is a great place to start to get a feel for what news and travel tips are useful in planning a honeymoon there. @TwavelNut is also a great account that has specialized in stories and photos of Fiji. The main draw of the South Pacific is its breathtaking beauty – paradise distilled – and so photography is going to be one of a couple’s best resources.
