13 Adventurous Honeymoon Destinations for the Muslim Couple

Firstly, we recommend starting your marriage off with an adventurous honeymoon. With that said, we decided to put together our top 13 destinations. Secondly, we wanted to expand from the go-to places like the Maldives, Mecca, and Istanbul.

We selected cities and places that have some aspect of Muslim culture. Whether it be population, faith or other. Thirdly, as with any adventure, you want to read and talk to people who can give you advice. This includes travel-shots and safety tips.

Lastly, a honeymoon allows you to not only explore new places, but to explore your relationship as well. Most couples choose to go on their honeymoon immediately after the wedding. However, you can choose to delay it to a more convenient time. So, let’s go on an adventure:
