where's hot and dry for a honeymoon in June

Hi

I'm getting married at the end of May in 2011 and we're looking for a great hot and dry location for our honeymoon.

this is a once in a lifetime type of trip so money isn't the biggest issue. We dont want Europe (done that plenty already). We do however want the relaxing beach lifestyle.... any suggestions???

For a combination of relaxing and a great beach, I'd suggest Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Calm blue reef protected water on Grace Bay. Numerous very nice small rental-condo type resorts of various price ranges. Check the Provo forum for specific resort suggestions. tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g147395-i212-Turks…

Charter a yacht and sail the Whitsundays on the Great Barrier Reef. June is a great time of year, it is the 'dry' season, warm as in the tropics. You can self-sail, or the charter can include crew.

You will not find a whiter sand beach than Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays. And then there is the reef. You will be able to anchor in lagoons where you are the only boat, or pull into a resort island for some dining and dancing.

FABULOUS experience, once in a life-time stuff.

look into Aruba in the carrabien. We are going 14th June and have told that because of its location it sits outside of the hurricane belt and is hot all year round around 3 degrees with cooling trade winds, sounds wonderful! Was only £1500 each 14 nights all inclusive as well! I cant wait to get there - i hope you find what you are looking for x

Aruba and Providenciales are both good suggestions. Aruba may have a better chance of being completely dry.

I would also recommend Barbados for a nice beach vacation. There are some great resorts that would be perfect for a honeymoon, and there are flights from the UK.

The Virgin Islands are another good choice. Both US and British are gorgeous. My favorites are St. John (US) and Virgin Gorda (British). If you are looking or a luxurious honeymoon, take a look at Caneel Bay and Little Dix Bay. The two properties have the same ownership, and many people do a split stay between the two.

I also recommend French Polynesia and honeymooned there myself. It is unbelievably gorgeous. The only caveat is that he beaches are crushed coral rather than sand. So if you really love lazing on a beach with fine sand this may not be the place for you.

i so think that the cook islands should be looked into...google atutaki island. heaven..aruba to me, (and that is just what i thought) was all a dead reef (and that is true) and casinos...i loved the island tour that we took, but for a honeymoon and all...something else.

We just returned from French Polynesia (Tahiti, Moorea, Bora bora, Taha'a) and the Cook Islands. We have done the Carribean many. many times. If you have the time and the $$ I would go to the Tahiti area. You can look at my 5 part trip report on the French Polynesia forum.

Belize? You don't feel the humidity - breezes.. Ambergris Caye

Very laid back, relatively safe, English spoken...Diving, explore one of the world's largest barrier reefs, eco-friendly places...
