For some people, there’s no better place to tie the knot than on a beautiful beach. If you’re thinking about getting married with the sand and surf as your backdrop, here are some of the best spots to say “I do”.
Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas
The pink sand of aptly named Pink Sands Beach on lovely Harbour Island in the Bahamas is a picturesque place to say “I do.” The laid back vibe, and charming streets add to the appeal. You can access Harbour Island via a ferry from Nassau.
Grace Bay Beach, Turks and Caicos
Continually voted by travellers and travel publications alike as one of the best beaches in the world, you can’t beat the ultra-long stretch of sand on Grace Bay Beach for a wedding (and a honeymoon).
Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda
Another pink-tinged beach to say “I do” on is Horseshoe Bay Beach in Bermuda. The pretty stretch of sand is known as the most beautiful beach on the island – and it doesn’t disappoint.
Kapalua Bay Beach, Hawaii
If you’ve always dreamed of saying your vows on a beach in Hawaii, think about Kapalua Bay Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui. The perfectly crecent-shaped beach can get busy, so you might have a few onlookers as you say “I do”.
Phra Nang Beach, Thailand
Krabi, Thailand is home to Phra Nang Beach where you get turquoise water, white sand and massive limestone cliffs framing the beach at each end. It’s no wonder this one is ranked among the best beaches in the world.
Kaladi Beach, Greece
Greece’s Kythera Island is where you’ll find postcard-worthy Kaladi Beach. Warm turquoise water and soft, golden sand are set against rocky cliffs, creating a picture-perfect place to say “I do”.
Boulders Beach, South Africa
Say your vows and share a kiss on Cape Town’s Boulders Beach, a scenic sheltered cove of white sand, turquoise water and granite boulders dotting the landscape. The area is also home to a colony of African penguins.
Trunk Bay, U.S. Virgin Islands
You can’t get bluer, more crystal clear water than what you get at Trunk Bay in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Couple that with lush green vegetation and white sand, and you get the ultimate spot to say “I do”. It’s not hard to see why this beach is among the best in the world. It’s also known for good snorkelling.
