What is wrong with us? Bali, Singapore, Thailand, Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles! Are we not tired of these places? When it comes to honeymoons, everyone we know and their dogs have gone to these aforementioned places. Have we run out of places in the world or are we simply boring? Anyways, for the interesting folks out there, here are five visa-free island countries that perfect if you are planning an offbeat honeymoon.

Miles upon infinite miles of transparent ocean and talcum white sand are nature's gift to Dominica. It helps that thousands of loudmouths don't flock to this hidden slice of paradise. Dominica doesn't get package tourism nor are there any large-scale resorts. Hence, it will just be you, your loved one and your personal slice of paradise. Morne Trois Pitons National Park holds within its green reaches three of Dominica's highlights - Boiling Lake, Victoria Falls and Trafalgar Falls. Roseau, Dominica's capital, is dotted with colourful houses, colonial-era churches and a relaxed vibe. Introduce your better half to the other half of our planet by snorkelling or diving around the Champagne Reef where you will encounter Batfish, seahorses, barracuda, rays, squid, and trumpet fish among other tropical fish.
