The Best Honeymoon Destinations in August

While it’s winter in South Africa, there are still great reasons to visit as July to November are whale-watching months and August is the height of the birthing season – head to Hermanus where you can watch these magnificent creatures from the clifftops. A honeymoon in August is a great time to go on safari too. The vegetation is dry and the grass is short so the game-viewing is excellent and you’ll marvel at the wildlife as the animals converge on the waterholes. Also consider a Kenya or Tanzania Honeymoon, where the weather is a little warmer and the migration season is in full swing. 

If you want a hot beach break, then choose a honeymoon in Bali with a Singapore stopover or head to the South Pacific. Tahiti is arguably one of the most romantic destinations in the South Pacific with 118 islands in five archipelagos. Boasting amazing diving, beautiful hotels with over-water bungalows, deep lagoons and world famous islands such as Bora Bora and Moorea, this really is paradise on earth. Aitutaki in the Cook Islands boasts one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world and an August honeymoon would be the perfect time to visit.

Don’t forget to check out the details of our Honeymoon gift list service, which allows friends and family to contribute towards travel experiences as well as the more traditional gift list items, all in one place. A complimentary service for all Turquoise honeymoon couples and looked after by a full time team, it’s just one of the ways we can ensure your dream honeymoon becomes a reality.
