9 new honeymoon destinations to explore in 2018
Why not explore Western Australia?

Looking for the coolest new adventure honeymoon destination for 2018? Black Tomato have rounded up their predictions for the most popular honeymoon destinations for adventurous couples next year…

1. Keke Xili, the Tibetan Plateau China
Why for 2018?

The Tibetan Plateau in China is taking centre stage and recently became a UNESCO World Heritage site: highest plateau in the world, often considered as the world’s ‘Third Pole’. It sits 14,750 feet above sea level with striking landscapes that blend alpine mountains and rolling steppe systems. Plus, with the addition of a new bullet train route this remote region is now even more accessible for travellers.

2. Mexico: Puebla, Mexico City and the Yucatan
Why for 2018?

Mexico City has been honoured as World Design Capital for 2018, and this is a place that really does offer everything – from art gallery visits to snorkelling through sculptures! You can also experience a natural phenomenon with a full day trip by helicopter from Mexico City to see the Monarch butterfly migration ad visit the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá (check out Black Tomato’s totally private tour before it’s open to the public and beat the tourists).

3. Comporta, Portugal
Why for 2018?

Hailed as the the ‘new Ibiza’ this is an exclusive summer getaway free from the crowds. It is a sleepy yet sophisticated enclave, primed for summer escapes: unassuming white-washed villages of cobbled streets and terracotta roofs add to the relaxed vibe, yet stepping inside any one of the small boutiques will reveal boho-chic wares and luxe linens.
Beaches are beautifully soft and sandy, yet refreshingly quiet, bordered by rolling sand dunes and vibrant rice fields lined by cork trees – perfect for leisurely exploration, especially on horseback.

4. Aysen, Chilean Patagonia
Why for 2018?

Nowhere is quite so adventurous, and untouched, as Aysen, Northern Patagonia’s final frontier: a remote land of vast glaciers, snow-capped peaks and jagged fjords. Sparsely populated, Aysen is a place to disconnect from the world and revel in the splendid isolation that its awe-inspiring, and otherworldly, landscapes inspire.

5.  Tasmania and Western Australia
Why for 2018?

The region of Hobart epitomises the island’s remote location and showcases a rugged wilderness, punctuated by a thriving arts scene, hip foodie haunts and flavour-packed wines rivalling those of the mainland.
In Western Australia, you can sleep overnight on a yacht in Ningaloo reef and dive with whale sharks at dawn! Plus, with Qantas launching new flight routes from London to Perth and flights from Houston to Sydney there’s never been a more convenient way to explore Australia.

6. Malawi
Why for 2018?

Untouched, unknown and ripe for discovery, Malawi offers sprawling, wildlife-rich national parks that make for the perfect safari away from the crowds, while the vast expanse of Lake Malawi is the perfect beach retreat with its endless white-sand coastlines and crystal clear waters perfect for snorkelling. 2017 also saw the completion of the ground-breaking #500Elephants project – the largest elephant translocation in human history and alongside these wonderful creatures, Malawi’s Nkhotakota Reserve has received hundreds of other animals.

7. New Mexico, USA
Why for 2018?

A land of mind-blowing landscapes that sprawl across the Chihuahuan Desert and beneath the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico invites adventure. Guests will horseback ride across the ranch, hot air balloon above grazing wildlife and hike to mighty peaks.   

8. Uganda
Why for 2018?

With the recent 100% increase in Rwandan permit prices, Uganda offers more untapped experiences at a much more affordable rate, meaning you can spend longer exploring this amazing home to gorillas and chimpanzees.

9. Emilia Romagna, Italy
Why for 2018?

Home to a menagerie of unforgettable experiences, this region is home to the city where Mozart, Rossini and Wagner introduced their works, host to the oldest university in the western world and offers some of Italy’s most celebrated culinary traditions.
