Honeymoon Destination: Barbados

With a nearly 39 percent visitor return rate to Barbados, you can rest assured that you won’t just have the loveliest of beach honeymoons, but the friendliest one as well.  A honeymoon in Barbados is definitely the best way to start off your new lives together.

With white sand beaches, miles of coastline (in the shape of a smile!), and temperate weather all year round, you may be tempted to just lie on the beaches all week long and never venture too far from the water’s edge.  However, you’d be missing out on some of the best tours in the Caribbean!  So put down that umbrella drink, grab a shirt, and let’s get going!

Underwater Tours

Underwater tours, or submerged tours, are not only a great way to see the wildlife under the sea, but are also a great way to make some lasting memories as well.

Atlantis Submarines This company offers air-conditioned submarine rides that allow you and your meant-to-be to see a shipwreck, numerous families of fish, and an abundance of plant life that you would’ve never seen from the beach.  Call in advance to secure a spot as these submarines only hold 28 to 48 passengers.

Tours on the Water

If going under the water in a submarine isn’t for you, then you should definitely book a cruise on a ship.  These cruise options are not only affordable, they offer you sites of Barbados that are both breathtaking and romantic while getting away from it all.

Tall Ship Cruises  Tall Ship Cruises has five beautiful and majestic catamarans that depart from Shallow Draught daily.  You can choose to do a lunch cruise, a dinner cruise, or a starlight cruise.  If you’re feeling like getting into the water, they also have an option to snorkel with the turtles

MV Harbour Master Blockbuster This isn’t your ordinary cruise ship.  This three-story vessel has themed decks, two bars, and even a dance floor so you and your honey can cut a rug!  If you get tired of watching the numerous televisions with various sporting events or eating from their formal buffet, you can opt to go underwater (yep, under the water again) in their semi-submersible that is located underneath the boat.  Who knew there could be a boat within a boat? But with such amazing underwater wildlife to see, why not?
