Best time to visit…

Making sure you arrive at the right time of year is crucial for enjoying a great honeymoon holiday.

Our weather guide indicates the best time to visit each honeymoon destination at a time when the skies are generally clear and sunny, the temperature is warm to hot (rather than scorching) and the chance of rain is minimal or not at all.

And while the skies are not always blue in the tropics, rainfall typically occurs during the late afternoon leaving the rest of the day sunny with clear skies.

If you are planning a long haul trip, just remember that seasons reverse between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres: i.e. winter in Europe is summer in Australia and the South Pacific, and vice versa; mid-winter in Australia is July and August – the peak summer holiday in Europe!

Northern Hemisphere

The Northern Hemisphere contains all of Europe, North America, Central America and the Caribbean as well as around two thirds of Africa, a small slice of South America and the majority of Asia, excluding Indonesia.

Tropical regions in the Northern Hemisphere are typically hot all year and experience a rainy season during the summer months and a cooler dry season in the winter months. Temperate regions, such as Europe, experience four distinct seasons annually.

Southern Hemisphere

The Southern Hemisphere lies south of the equator and contains Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific islands, South America, the southern half of Africa and most of Indonesia.

Due to the earth’s rotation relative to the sun, summer lasts from December to March and winter from June to September; vice versa in the Northern Hemisphere.

Typically in the Southern Hemisphere, summer (December to March) is hot, wet and humid, while winter (June to September) is warm, dry and sunny with mainly clear skies.

Beach-loving couples wondering when and where to go for their honeymoon have a wide choice of fabulous honeymoon destinations around the world.
