I'm getting married next year and planning my honeymoon for August 2017. I originally was looking for a location with an overwater bungalow that was also close travel wise to Italy. Figuring, we'd spend 1 week at the bungalow and 1 week in Italy. Problem I seem to be encountering is that August is looking like prime hurricane season for the overwater bungalow while also being extremely hot in Italy. I'm reading that i's the month where Italians will normally go on holiday to the beaches or mountains to escape the heat
So I'm looking for suggestions on other locations that would be ideal during this time of year and also if anyone has been to Italy or a location with an overwater bungalow during this time of year, I'd love to hear your experience.
The other idea was to go to South Africa for a safari but I would still like to go to a beach at some point during the vacation so if anyone has suggestions on whether South Africa in August is a good idea and beaches that are close travel wise that would be great.
Our entire honeymoon cannot last more than 2 weeks and we have to go the 1st week in August.
