The best part about a beach babymoon is you get to soak up the warmth and just lounge -- perfect for any mama-to-be who’s tired and worn out from pregnancy. And what’s great is that whether you want to go far away (like to Mexico or the Caribbean) or stick close by (like California or Florida), a beach getaway is still doable. If you’re a fan of sand and surf, there are plenty of places to choose from:
Florida: With tons of great beaches and resorts, you’ll have your pick of spots for a Florida babymoon. Try the LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort in Naples for romantic dinners and moments on the sand. Plus, he can hit up the golf course while you’re indulging at the resort’s spa.
California: Up and down the coast of California are some pretty stunning beaches. For a quieter scene than Los Angeles or San Diego, check out The Cliffs Resort in Pismo Beach. It’s located about three hours northwest of Los Angeles and offers an And Baby Makes Three package. The deal includes a massage for mom-to-be and dad-to-be, a $50 dinner voucher at the resort’s restaurant, a welcome basket filled with diapers and a onesie, a movie, ice cream (satisfy those cravings!) and even breakfast the next morning.
Turks and Caicos: If you’re looking for something extra-special, check out Parrot Cay, a private island resort in the Caribbean. This luxurious hotel has complimentary yoga and Pilates, an extensive spa menu (with special prenatal massages), two gourmet restaurants and plenty of excursions to pick from for exploring the island.
