One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is getting to choose a honeymoon location!  After all of the hard work, long hours and emotions that go into your wedding day… your honeymoon is a time to relax, unwind and enjoy time together as newly weds.  It’s a special time that you’ll always hold dear to your heart so it is certainly important to put some thought into this once in a lifetime trip.

The Mediterranean is an exceptional destination that offers just the right blend of relaxing luxury and sublime adventure. And with Club Med luxury holidays, there are plenty of breathtaking destination options that need not cost the earth.  Here are just a few of the fabulous honeymoon options they have to offer.

Relaxing in Corsica

Club Med’s Cargèse resort, in the north of Ajaccio, on the west coast of Corsica, is a visually stunning honeymoon destination. Set against the backdrop of the crystal-clear waters of a sheltered cove in the Gulf of Sagone, the resort stands imposingly atop the mountainside, giving you access to extraordinary views of Chiuni beach below.

With bungalows spread over a 13-hectare area of pine forest, teaming with Corsican wildlife, Club Med’s Cargèse resort gives you that haven of tranquillity that is the desire of any honeymoon couple.

Once you’ve spent the first few days on the beach coming down from the excitement of your magical wedding, there’s plenty to keep you and your other half busy. The resort has a tennis academy, sailing academy, opportunities for windsurfing and a whole range of active leisure pursuits that you can enjoy together.

After a week or more in the resort, you may fancy stretching your legs a little and a bus ride to nearby Ajaccio, where you can saunter through the quaint historic town centre and explore the local market; it may just be the slow-paced day out you’ve been looking for.

As the sun sets on another perfect day in the Cargèse resort, whether you’ve been lazing on the beach or exploring Ajaccio, nothing beats enjoying some delicious food and sumptuous wine with your loved one at Club Med’s Beach restaurant at a terrace table, overlooking the sea.

Embracing a relaxed pace of life in Turkey

Turkey is a country that is synonymous with culture, historical intrigue, a relaxed pace of life and sumptuous, fusion cuisine, all of which serve to make it the perfect Mediterranean honeymoon destination.

Nestled in the hills, among a swath of pine trees and located to the south of Izmir is the secluded Club Med resort of Bodrum Palmiye. The resort’s suites, housed in bungalows that pepper the resort, are tastefully decorated in a contemporary Mediterranean style and are very spacious, with a charming colourful flowered pathway leading you into your haven of solitude.

While the Bodrum Palmiye resort is blessed with a 200-yard beach, a number of fine dining options and a vast array of sporting possibilities, it’s the lure of the azure waters that will leave you and your other half spellbound.

With such a close proximity to the famed Aegean coastline, the Bodrum Palmiye resort makes the perfect jumping-off point to cruise through the Turkish Riviera in a caïque. Lying on the deck of this traditional wooden boat as you drift along the Aegean coastline, stopping off along the way to swim through the region’s wild creaks and crystal clear waters, is the perfect way to spend a truly memorable day with your spouse.

And if that wasn’t enough, Bodrum is also one of the world’s most culturally intriguing destinations, with a day trip to Ephesus an absolute must for any couple looking to add a little culture to their honeymoon. Legend has it that Ephesus was a veritable cultural melting pot in its day and it is home to a temple dedicated to the goddess Artemis, which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Spoil yourselves in Portugal

After successfully negotiating your collective way through the long lead-up to your wedding and the day itself, Portugal could just be the perfect place to really unwind and let your troubles drift away into the ether.

And Club Med’s Da Balaia resort, located in Portugal’s Algarve region, is the ideal place to turn those dreams of finding a relaxing retreat into a reality. Perched atop a deep red cliff, overlooking a brilliant white sand beach and the glistening Atlantic Ocean below, Da Balaia’s picturesque setting is the perfect place to start married life together.

When it comes to your accommodation, Club Med has spared no expense. If you truly want to pamper yourselves in style, opting for a suite in the Hotel Golf ensures a stunning and comfortable room, tastefully decorated, with a sea-view balcony on which you can enjoy a glass of wine.

While Da Balaia’s accommodation offering will have you redefining the very definition of luxury, the resort’s Vasco de Gamma restaurant, which serves exquisite seafood in a cosy lounge atmosphere, is a truly special way to end any day.

A world of options

The beauty of the Mediterranean is in its seemingly endless options. When it comes to honeymoons, there is no ‘right’ way to enjoy yourselves – only the way that suits both of you.
