Azores, Canary Islands, Mallorca, or Hawaii for August Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are all over the place in terms of planning our honeymoon. My fiance and I love to travel and are having some trouble deciding on our honeymoon locale. We are getting married at the end of July and will probably go traditional and leave right after for a two week honeymoon in August.

My fiance and I travel well together, but also have different styles that we are trying to compromise on. And we are all over the place with deciding between Hawaii, the Azores, Barcelona/Mallorca or Barcelona/Canary Islands. Disparate choices, but they all have some island and foodie element with good weather in August. We are both foodies and love to explore dining hotspots, street stands, vineyards, and outdoor markets as well as go on Fiance: Wants relaxation after the wedding and he is content to sit on the beach, but doesn't have to the whole time. Me: I can sit on the beach for two hours before I get bored (though I love water sports). Fiance: Is adventurous and would like something exotic but doesn't want a hassle (like the time we got lost with out guide for 12 hours in the middle of nowhere in the Brazilian wetlands) and would like a bit of luxury. Me: I love adventure and crave some outdoorsy time, hiking, surfing, etc or catching some historical sights. I also love trying to learn a bit about the culture (and I speak Spanish, Portuguese, and a little Italian). We also want something away from too much mass tourism, but I know it is difficult in August. Any thoughts or suggestions on these locations in August? Specific places to go or avoid?
