The cold weather abates throughout the month of April in North America and although you could still get cold snaps and lingering snow in some places, spring is well and truly under way.

Temperatures are mild in the northern half of California and the crowds are thinner, so stick San Francisco, Napa Valley, Monterey and Big Sur on your list.

April Honeymoon Destinations in Europe

Best April Honeymoon Destinations at a glance: Italy | Greece | Croatia | Spain | France | Turkey

Some of the best honeymoon destinations in April for couples who want to avoid the crowds can be found in Europe.

It’s a transitional month as Europe’s beach resorts wake up from winter. It’s one of our favourite months for sightseeing in some of the world’s best cities.

Explore the ancient sites of Rome, and historic Athens. Or the stunning cities of Spain like Madrid, Barcelona and Seville.

You might still get rain showers though so be prepared.

More northerly cities like Paris, Copenhagen, London, Dublin and Amsterdam, can be still a little cooler but we wouldn’t let that put you off a delightful minimoon or April honeymoon in Europe.

Spring is a beautiful time to visit the continent. The city’s flowers bloom and the sun shines brighter and the crowds are fewer than in high summer, a huge positive.

April can be a little colder for beach weather, particularly earlier in the month, but if you don’t need it to be too hot, hotels and restaurants will begin to open throughout the month of April and May around the Mediterranean, Aegean and Adriatic Sea tourist towns.

By the end of the month, airlines have started their summer schedules as Europeans head for the coastlines.

Whether it’s island hopping in Greece, zig zagging across Italy or exploring Turkey, Cyprus, Croatia, Portugal, Spain – you’re in for a treat.

Whether it’s a heavenly island destinations like Santorini, stunning Mykonos or other Cyclades islands, exploring cities like beautiful Florence and magical Venice, April is a time when the weather is very pleasant and Europe is less crowded(Easter being an exception!)

While we never guarantee weather, for hotter temperatures, the Canary Islands and Madeira are worth exploring.

There is a slim chance of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland and it’s not quite road trip weather, so we’d recommend picking another month for this wonderfully unique honeymoon destination.

It’s also a little early for cruises although some start the season in late April. It can be cooler on the high seas, so if you love the idea of a Mediterranean or Norwegian Fjords, wait until May for a full schedule and warmer weather.
