Honeymoon destination

hi there,

can anyone recommend a nice honeymoon destination for May. We are getting married on Boracay Island and want to go somewhere else for our honeymoon.

this is what we are looking for:

- nice beach

- some snorkelling & diving

- not too busy

- great views and some privacy

- somewhere relatively modern

we have been looking at Club Paradise and El Rio y Mar Resort- but cant seem to come to a decision. our budget is about $140 per room per night (ideally full board- but not essential).

any advise would be great!

Maybe you can try a trip with Tao Expedition?

Tao will bring you all the less visited beach between Coron and El Nido. Many people seems to praise El Nido over Coron so you can want to start your Tao Expedition trip from Coron to El Nido and stay at El Nido for a few days.

I love Siquijor (especially Coco Grove Resort) but I wouldn't call it modern. It is still authentic and charming, thankfully. Nearby Apo Island has some outstanding diving and snorkeling.

All great suggestions.

Im also very fond of Siquijor and its a perfect romantic place to stay for a honeymoon. Its not crowded and has a beautiful beach. Coco Grove where I also stayed is a nice resort and not expensive. For your budget that should cover all your meals.

Imagine having breakfast outside on the beach, candlelit dinners on the beach at night with a musican playing at your table. Having an afternoon rest in one of the several hammocks scattered around the resort or a drink in their pool bar.

Whilst well outside of your budget El Nido resorts have accomodation on stlts over the water that would be my ideal place:


Here is a video of one of their resorts featured on our Australian Travel Program called Getaway and hosted by a part Filipino Aussie Kate Cebrano.


I would also consider Coron as Edwinic has suggested or El Nido as above is but perhaps accomodation that suits your budget.

Also look at top questions as there are many ideas there.

Coron would be my top tip.

Fly to Busuanga, or catch the weekly (I think) SuperFerry.

Great snorkelling and (not for me) diving. Wonderful turquoise waters. Not too crowded.

Zest Airways, Airphils Express (this one my favourite) and Cebu Pacific fly to Busuanga, Coron.
