Planning your yacht charter honeymoon

Published 13 décembre 2023

From an amorous cruise through the romantic Greek islands to a culinary tour of the Amalfi Coast, a yacht provides a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon experience in an incomparable setting. From choosing a destination and a yacht to considering the activities you’ll enjoy on board, and more, Burgess can help you navigate the perfect honeymoon.  


Why charter a yacht for your honeymoon?

With all the ingredients of a fairy-tale setting – arrival by tender, romantic décor, amazing cuisine, great service, stunning master suite, sunsets and sundowners, and of course the ultimate privacy – a superyacht is the perfect alternative to a honeymoon resort.  

Create picturesque memories as newlyweds 

Chartering a yacht for your honeymoon means that not only are your accommodation, meals, activities and entertainment all taken care of, but you can also conduct all the sightseeing you want from one home base. So, no tedious packing and unpacking your bags every few days, and you also don’t have to worry about travel delays and how you will get from point A to point B.  

Take sightseeing to a different level via tender

Added to this, the absence of the check-in and check-out times that come with hotels and resorts, and your pick of romantic destinations to visit surrounded by a luxurious home-away-from-home setting – what’s not to love? And then of course there is the world-class cuisine. One of the best parts of honeymooning is getting the chance to indulge in delicious meals with your new spouse – and with your own personal yacht chef, you can quite literally design your own bespoke menu for every mealtime.  

Honeymoon yacht charter destinations  

Rest assured, wherever the destination, a superyacht will offer great scenery, impeccable service and a truly memorable experience. However, when chartering a superyacht, you truly have your pick of romantic destinations with a little of what you like thrown in.  

Explore and experience new locations, cultures and cuisines 

For couples who equate fun with adventure, how about exploring the far-flung shores of Thailand? Looking to explore a new city? Head to Singapore. And in Martinique, honeymooners will find an array of romantic excursions from snorkelling with turtles to watching a sunset from above the clouds on the top of Martinique’s Mount Pelée.

Do the things you love together in stunning destinations around the world

However, if you are simply exhausted after all the wedding madness and don’t have the energy for sightseeing and would rather just relax on board, you can absolutely do that too. A yacht charter provides you with plenty of opportunities simply to sit back and enjoy spending time with your loved one while the crew attend to your every need.  

Perfect for island hopping 


With so many stunning islands to choose from, the archipelagos in Thailand’s Andaman Sea are perfect for an island-hopping honeymoon. The Phi Phi Islands are probably the most well-known, but these days are somewhat spoiled by the crowds.  

Embrace the tranquil atmosphere and beauty of Koh Lanta

Instead, ask your captain to steer a course for Koh Lanta. Made up of several islands, the most well-known which is Koh Lanta Yai, these waters provide world-class diving and snorkelling, and one of the longest beaches in Asia – appropriately called Long Beach – perfect for a romantic sunset stroll.  

Go for a refreshing snorkel in the clear-blue waters and discover Thailand's marine life

The hard-to-reach, soft white sands of Koh Lipe offer further snorkelling opportunities within the Tarutao Marine Park, or perhaps a two-seater kayak trip. This is the ideal place to unwind, relax for a few days and simply share the beauty with your spouse.  

Great for city exploration  


One of the most multicultural cities in the world, Singapore is no longer just a stopover en route to somewhere else – with all it has to offer it is now a destination in its own right. However, for those looking to combine a few days exploring the ‘Garden City’ with a relaxing honeymoon charter, it is easy to pair the city with a yacht charter through the stunning cruising grounds of Indonesia or Thailand – the ideal multi-centre escape.  

Start your honeymoon off with fresh air and beautiful sceneries 

During your city break in Singapore, head to Orchard Road for retail therapy, and Chinatown for what is arguably the best Chinese food in the world.  Take an exhilarating ride, champagne glass in hand, on the Singapore Flyer for panoramic views over skyscrapers surrounded by parks – almost half the city is devoted to green space, with over 400 parks and four nature reserves.  

Explore the busy streets of Singapore's Chinatown and experience the bold aromatic flavours 

Head to the Singapore Botanic Gardens – the first and only tropical garden on the UNESCO World Heritage List – with its more than 200 acres of green space right in the city centre. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Yueh Hai Ching Temple, aka the Temple of Love, is the perfect antidote to the bustling city centre, while back in town the arts scene has something to suit every cultural taste. From outdoor music and theatre venues to museums and art galleries, the city’s cultural calendar is bursting with events and performances.  

Take a trip down to the Yueh Hai Ching Temple

And then there is the dynamic food scene. Singapore has a total of 49 Michelin stars, including three three-starred establishments, while the hawker landscape is so diverse there is certainly a table to suit every palette.  

enjoy the amalfi coast


With its spellbinding scenery and stunning coastal region, it’s no surprise that the Amalfi Coast is a favourite honeymoon charter destination. So impressive is this Italian cruising ground that the entire Amalfi region is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. But there’s a lot more to do than soak up the scenery during an Amalfi Coast honeymoon charter.  

Enjoy an balcony breakfast together with breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast

Discover the treasure trove of seaside towns, ancient fishing villages, beach clubs and romantic cliff-top restaurants suspended between the Mediterranean Sea and the slopes of the Lattari Mountains. Cruise along the coastline, stopping of course to swim and snorkel, and visit the Emerald Grotto. 

Adore Italy's beauty from a different perspective with an early morning hike 

Lounge on deck and admire the Li Galli archipelago off the coast of Positano – legend has it that the three islets here were inhabited by Homer’s Sirens, who lured ships with the melodious but mesmerising voices. What could be more romantic than a sunset dip in the turquoise waters here before an intimate dinner served on deck as the sun drops over the horizon?  

Nothing's more romantic than a day of sightseeing 

Other than a stroll through the romantic gardens that surround the 13th-century Villa Rufolo, perhaps. Time it right and you might catch a concert in honour of Richard Wagner’s opera Parsifal, which is said to have been inspired by these very gardens. And of course, with almost 30 Michelin-starred restaurants dotted along the coastline here, you can enjoy La Dolce Vita lifestyle all the way.  

best for finding romantic spots


The source of the most famous myths and legends to ever have been told, the Greek islands have been attracting the waterborne to their shores since time immemorial. The promise of exploration make the crystal-blue waters the perfect destination for a honeymoon yacht charter. 

Unleash your inner child as you enjoy a day full of laughter on the golden-sandy beach

Clustered together off the west coast of Greece, the Ionian islands of Corfu, Kefalonia, Ithaca and Zakynthos all offer powder-white beaches backed by rugged mountains and a cultural melange of Venetian, French and British heritage.  

Get your hiking boots on and adventure out into the hills of Santorini 

Alternatively, the Cyclades to the southeast of the mainland are said to be the birthplace of Apollo, the God of the Sun and Light, and they have certainly been blessed with magical sunsets that are the embodiment of romance. From Milos, with its colourful landscapes; Santorini and the honeymoon hotspot of Oia, and Mykonos with its very own Little Venice, the Cyclades were seemingly made for romance and are perfect for a honeymoon yacht charter.  

ideal for experiencing lots of activities 

British Virgin Islands

With more than 40 islands and uninhabited cays, many of which are only accessible by boat, the British Virgin Islands are a honeymoon yacht charter paradise ideal for those getting married in Autumn or Winter.  

Make it up as you go. Stay on board or adventure a shore

Steeped in history and folklore that includes tales of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, rumours of buried treasure and tales of mutiny at sea, these islands have activities galore for the waterborne. From diving and snorkelling shipwrecks to relaxing on picture-postcard white-sand beaches and peaceful anchorages in crescent-shaped bays, the British Virgin Islands really are perfect for romance-seeking couples.  

Soak in the sun as you enjoy some quality time together on the beautiful beaches of the British Virgin Islands

Tortola is the largest and most populated island in the archipelago and is a convenient place for couples to embark on their honeymoon yacht charter. Home to the popular white sands of Cane Garden Bay and with plentiful hiking opportunities through Sage Mountain National Park, Tortola is a great introduction to Caribbean Island life. From here you can cruise through the Sir Francis Drake Channel towards Virgin Gorda and step ashore at any one of the small islands – Peter, Norman, Ginger and Salt to name just a few.

Embrace all the islands have to offer and explore the seawater pools

Reclining to the east of the archipelago, Virgin Gorda is best known for The Baths. A series of seawater pools shaded by giant granite boulders, with their colourful fish and coral, they are a delight to discover by snorkelling or sea kayak. Wherever you venture in the BVI, think deep blue waters, pure white sand and clear skies, all making for the perfect honeymoon yacht charter.  

best for unusual charter experiences 


Head off the beaten track and discover the island of Martinique during a honeymoon yacht charter through the Caribbean’s Windward islands. Drawn by its combination of French flair and Caribbean warmth, the lesser-known island of Martinique is perfect for those wishing to combine a few days ashore before setting sail to explore the Grenadines Island chain.  

Visit the Saint-Pierre church ruins on your hike or mountain bike ride

Explore the island by helicopter, mountain bike or even on horseback, or take a bracing hike to discover its tropical rainforest, alpine peaks, rocky hills and virgin beaches. Walk the Route de la Trace that winds from coast to coast through the island’s volcanic, forested interior, eventually bringing you out by the stunning gardens of the Jardin de Balata.  

Take a lovely afternoon stroll in Jardin de Balata gardens

Alternatively, stroll around the beautiful gardens that surrounded the 18th-century house on the Musée de la Pagerie – a former colonial sugar estate, the plantation was originally home to Napoleon’s Empress, Josephine. In the water, divers should explore the wreck of the three-masted lighthouse boat Nahoon or the coral wall at Les Grandes Jorasses. And for those looking to dance, the small reggae clubs and beach bars make for a fun evening where you can really join in the spirit of local life and culture.
