He writes:

“Freshly prepared cocktails on deck, under a moonlit sky, listening to the sound of the waves….or strolling a sandy beach as the sun sets into the Pacific after a lovely evening meal next to the sea….

These are just some of the romantic moments awaiting travellers who choose the Galapagos Islands for their honeymoon.

Galapagos boasts great services, wildlife and landscapes for those prepared to travel a little further for that unforgettable way to remember your unforgettable wedding day.

More on Galapagos Honeymoons

There is something for everyone in Galapagos: hikes and bike for the active, beautiful beaches for sun worshippers.

Snorkelling is also a real highlight – sea lions darts around you, turtles float serenely past and the odd shark adds a little extra excitement, and some excellent diving for those who want something extra.

The views are always spectacular with the crystal-clear waters, dramatic volcanoes and lack of pollution.

Galapagos is not your swamped destination, either – only 80,000 people visit each year. You’ll be bound to find lots of space and tranquility to enjoy quiet moments.

You really need a week to fully explore the Galapagos Islands. If you have more time, then Ecuador  – the access point for the islands – offers a myriad of experiences from Amazon to haciendas to volcanoes.
