Once Christmas is over and The New Year begins, we can often be left feeling a little flat and in need of a pick-me-up. The perfect solution? A little winter sun to heal a multitude of aches and stresses. Winter Sun is so important for your health. While most of us are taught to fear the sun, moderate sun exposure is a must. As the days have grown shorter and cooler, we’re less likely to be outside so we are getting dramatically less day-to-day vitamin D, which can affect our health and our mood.
What better way to get your dose of vitamin sea than to take your honeymoon in a warm destination? But with so many wonderful options, taking your pick can often be a minefield. We’ve narrowed it down to just 10 choices; here are our top 10 winter sun honeymoons destinations:
Why not try something a little different for the honeymoon of your dreams? Honeymoons in Sri Lanka offers the perfect paradise location.

Unwind by feasting on wholesome and delicious Sri Lankan cuisine, and enjoy a blissful yoga session on an ancient site. Sri Lanka really does offer the perfect combination of activity and relaxation.
It has to be said, the white sands of the Caribbean are undeniably utopic which is why they are one of the most popular honeymoon destinations.

We had a winter honeymoon but chose Scandinavia rather than somewhere warm. I love the idea of seeking winter sun though.
