Bedarra Island, Australia

Located on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Bedarra Island provides the peace and seclusion couples long for after their big day.

South Africa

Sunbathing and all-inclusive resorts are great, but adventurous couples will appreciate South Africa, where safari game drives and cage diving with great whites dominate the itinerary.

Hit the famous ski slopes of Switzerland, then rejuvenate at one of the country’s many luxury mountaintop hotels. Spoil yourselves with a spa overlooking the dramatic Swiss Alps. End the night sipping Champagne and devouring world-famous Swiss chocolate under a starlit sky.

The vibrant, futuristic city of Tokyo will leave you astonished, but quaint rural villages on Hokkaido, ancient temples in Kyoto and boat-rowing beneath pink cherry blossoms in Inokashira Park will leave you in awe.

Fuji.

Maui, Hawaii

Looking for paradise on U.S. soil? Maui is your no-passport-necessary destination.
