Don’t miss out on a trek or hike when you are in a place like Kerala, where natural beauty is bountiful. Walk around in the lush green meadows of Vagamon or book a safari at Parambikulam Tiger Reserve. The fresh, unpolluted air and spectacular views are bound to make you feel at one with nature.

Famous hiking trails like Meesapulimala near Munnar and Dhoni Waterfalls in Palakkad are good choices for a foray into the world of birds and trees.

Sunrise and sunset require special mentions in every couple’s honeymoon itinerary. The magic of experiencing these unique phenomena of nature is bound to build a special connection between you and your spouse. Wake up early in the morning and scale the peak nearest to your honeymoon spot. If you are in Kerala for your honeymoon, set a day aside to catch the sunrise together.

Walking into the sunset together is the very premise behind having a beach honeymoon. With a stretch of around 580 km of coastline and an equally expansive forest area, Kerala is one of the best honeymoon destinations you could ask for.  Sunrise and sunset points are dotted across the state and easy to reach.

Choose a treehouse when you are in the hilly regions of Kerala. Treehouses in places like Wayanad, Munnar, and Thekkady come with perks like luxury and privacy. With minimal effort, you can spice up your regular candle-lit dinner and turn it into a unique experience.

You can also go all out and arrange a posh picnic as a surprise to your partner, depending on where you book your stay.

Honeymoon comes on the heels of the loud and tiring wedding events. Especially in India, we don’t go easy on the festivities. So it’s only natural that you might want a day or two to relax and re-energize. After all, is there anything more romantic than staying in bed to watch a good old movie? If that’s what you are looking for, make sure you rent a luxury villa with all the amenities to comfort you. With a wide range of private rentals and Airbnb listings available in Kerala, finding such a place shouldn’t be difficult.

These are some of the things you can do to find each other again after the long and exhausting wedding events. Whatever you choose to do on your honeymoon, be it breakfast in bed or a soothing stroll by the beach, revel in each other’s company. Make memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
