Although the perfect honeymoon for some couples might entail holding hands in Paris, a large number of newlyweds are looking for something more unique. Active honeymoons are a growing trend and the first choice of many who want to get their adrenaline to the same level as their love for each other. If you and your other half want a honeymoon that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives, why not combine romance with excitement? Here are some of the top surfing honeymoon destinations that will satisfy your desire for both adventure and romance.

Indjup Spa Retreat, Australia

As one of the most popular surfing destinations, Australia will definitely meet your needs. Since it’s surrounded with the Pacific and Indian Oceans, you and your partner will have a variety of options to choose from on the East, South and West Coasts. However, since you’ve just tied the knot, you should opt for a destination further away from the prying eyes of the public. Luckily for you, Australia is home to many secluded and private resorts and Injidup Spa Retreat is one of them. Located on Western Australia’s south-west coast, the Retreat offers just 10 private villas where you can enjoy fine wine and superb food. There are many surf breaks in the vicinity of the Indjup Spa Retreat, including Surfer’s Point which is known for some of the best breaks in the region. You and your loved one will be reluctant to leave this newlyweds’ haven, so you’ll be likely to consider going back for an anniversary.
