• Bali is the most ‘pinned’ honeymoon destination in the world, followed by Italy and Hawaii
  • European countries appear the most on the list, with six destinations in the top 20 

Although many people’s wedding plans are still in flux due to Covid-19 restrictions, that doesn’t stop couples planning for their dream honeymoon. If Instagram is where you go to post photos whilst you’re on your honeymoon, Pinterest is where you go when you’re in planning mode. Intrigued to find out where the most lusted over honeymoon destinations are right now, luxury travel company Kuoni has turned to Pinterest data to find out.

The research, which analysed 10,000s of honeymoon boards on Pinterest, has revealed that the Indonesian island of Bali is the most popular honeymoon destination, followed by Italy and Hawaii in second and third place.

European destinations are most popular, with six countries in Europe on the top 20 list. Alongside Italy, the data reveals that Ireland, Greece, France, Iceland and Spain are also key wish-list destinations for honeymoons.

Unsurprisingly many of the top countries are exotic destinations with picture-perfect beaches and endless sunshine, so it’s notable that Ireland and Iceland appear on the list as well. With their chillier weather and dramatic scenery, they provide a more alternative but no less enjoyable honeymoon.
