Let’s be honest, October is a pretty dull month. Summer is over. Christmas is a bit too far away to start getting excited about it. The only thing we really have to look forward to is Halloween – which is pretty darn boring for us now that it’s not socially acceptable for us to go trick or treating (although we wish we could).

This is why more and more newlyweds are choosing to go on honeymoon in October, so they can have a bit of fun, adventure, and luxury in an otherwise boring time of year. So pack your bags, grab your husband or wife, and get ready for the time of your life.


There are some destinations that truly take our breath away, and Oahu is one of those destinations. As the third largest island in the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is becoming increasingly popular with newlyweds and those wanting a mix of luxurious relaxation and the hustle and bustle of city life. The island is a tale of two halves.

Meet the turtles in Oahu

By the coast, you have a whopping 112 miles of golden sands, tall palm trees and colorful coral reefs that are perfect for relaxing and swimming amongst the turtles and fishes. Inland, you have the bustling city life, complete with tall skyscrapers, a vibrant culture full of friendly people, famous restaurants and more. However, the piece de resistance of Oahu is the incredible rainforest. With gushing waterfalls, spindly trees, green mountains and hidden paths, the rainforests are an explorer’s’ paradise.

Abu Dhabi

If you’re looking for a bit of heat, culture, and luxury beyond compare, Abu Dhabi should be at the top of your honeymoon list. As the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is full of Persian charm.

Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi

There are colorful and intricate mosques and palaces standing alongside record-breaking glass skyscrapers, and the landscape is truly remarkable. In October, temperatures can reach as high as 31 degrees Celsius – but luckily, Abu Dhabi boasts some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the world, so you can always cool off with a dip in the sea. After a day of sightseeing and relaxing, you can finish off with a traditional Emirati dinner in Abu Dhabi’s exquisite restaurants. Why not add a meal to your flyustothemoon.com registry and get one of your guests to treat you while you’re on your honeymoon?

Sorrento Honeymoon

When it comes to class, sophistication, and culture – Italy has it by the bucketful. One of the most beautiful locations in Italy is Sorrento, which is slowly but surely being recognized as one of the most romantic places on Earth. This coastal town is recognizable by its cliff top location, with houses of every colour spiraling down the cliff faces, reaching the Bay of Naples at the bottom.

The town is shrouded in 14th-Century architecture and beautiful Piazzas. You can walk hand in hand down the cobbled streets, walk along the harbor, or climb to the top of the hill to take in the breathtaking view from above. With an average temperature of 17 degrees Celsius, Sorrento offers perfect walking weather in October, so you can explore this amazing destination with your husband or wife.

New York

Ahhh, the Big Apple. Although New York is a beautiful place to visit all year long, October is perhaps the most ideal for a newlywed couple. In October, the crowds of the summer have dispersed, and the winter has not quite dawned on the city. Instead, all you’ll need is a light jacket to explore the city that never sleeps. New York is perfect for the couple that loves to explore.

Don’t forget your walking shoes when visiting New York

You can check out the bustling streets of the city, take a wander through Central Park or catch a show on Broadway (you can add a show of your choice to your flyustothemoon.com registry!). October is also a fun-filled month in New York and even features the largest Halloween Parade in the world. What more could you want?

October doesn’t have to be so dull if you choose to go on your honeymoon. Now, where to go…
