Planning a honeymoon can be a stressful process. This becomes unfortunate as a trip that should be very romantic and exciting can quickly become shrouded in anxiety and confusion. With so many possible destinations, the choices can be very difficult to make. This is a good time to start thinking outside of the box and consider what most newlyweds wouldn’t. Montenegro is a gorgeous country located in the Balkan’s along the Adriatic Sea. It’s home to some of the most beautiful towns in Europe and yet is a relatively affordable place to travel.
Here are five reasons why Montenegro is perfect for a honeymoon.
The beachside is one of the first things that come to mind when planning a honeymoon. Something about the sand and sea makes for a truly romantic atmosphere. Newlyweds won’t have to sacrifice this ideal when traveling to Montenegro. In fact, this small country has a gorgeous coastline along the Adriatic Sea that rivals the Mediterranean in some areas with its tranquil blue color. Beyond this, Montenegro’s beaches are slices of paradise with soft sand and beautiful vistas.
Another downside to major honeymoon destinations is the sheer amount of people that decide to travel there as well. The reality is that Montenegro is still a fairly unknown travel destination to most newlyweds. In fact, this beautiful country is hardly even ever considered as a honeymoon destination. It is this precise reason that makes it another great option for newlyweds as tourist crowds will be far less than other more popular destinations. This means more privacy, romance, and space.
The classic honeymoon destinations often cost a considerable amount of money. Not only are flights to exotic islands expensive, but the food and accommodation in fancy resorts is also pricey. Fortunately, Montenegro is an incredibly cheap honeymoon alternative for those looking to get more out of their hard-earned cash. Without sacrificing any beauty or romance over traditional honeymoon locations, Montenegro offers affordable accommodation, cuisine, and travel. This affords couples the opportunity to potentially spend more time on their honeymoon as money is less of a factor. Another great tip for saving money in Montenegro is to book a house or private villa for the honeymoon instead of with a larger hotel or resort chain.
While relaxing on the beach or in an exotic villa can be a great way to spend your honeymoon, it’s nice to shake things up every once in a while. Walking through a beautiful, historical town can be just as romantic. Fittingly, Montenegro is home to some of the most gorgeous towns in the world. With some dating back to as early as the Roman periods, these towns are an idyllic setting for a candlelit dinner, a romantic stroll or even a short day trip. Budva is one of the most well-known towns in Montenegro for its historic old town, city walls constructed by the Venetians and for pristine beaches.
While some newlyweds prefer a relaxing and non-active honeymoon, there are a certain group of couples that want to include some activity in their trip. Beautiful nature landscapes are the perfect settings to enjoy a romantic hike or short walk. Montenegro, being tucked in between gorgeous mountains and the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea have enough natural diversity to last any honeymoon duration. Couples can enjoy a hike in the amazing Durmitor National Park that offers pristine lakes, deep forests and more. For those newlyweds more keen on the ocean, there are plenty of opportunity and locations to enjoy activities in the Adriatic Sea.
Montenegro will certainly not be the first option on a couple’s list of possible honeymoon destinations. In reality, most people will be unable to locate the country on a map. However, it is precisely this lack of popular knowledge that makes Montenegro the perfect place to spend a honeymoon. A lesser-known destination automatically ensures less tourists and more privacy, a great perk when trying to spend a romantic getaway together. The location of Montenegro offers couples gorgeous, turquoise seas and pristine beaches along with beguiling towns and impressive natural reserves.
