1. St Kitts & Nevis
The twin island nation of St Kitts & Nevis is a perfect spot for lovers who are food enthusiasts during the month of July.
During this period, restaurants on the island hosts its annual restaurant week where selective establishments offer deep discounts on various meals.
It is a great time for individuals who love Caribbean foods to experience and experiment the various flavors of the island.
The annual event is usually based on a theme and this ingredient becomes the star in numerous of the dishes created that week.
Some interesting and exciting things to do in St Kitts include riding the scenic railway train, hiking mount Liamuiga and visiting Romney Manor.
For the couple who loves luxury shopping and entertainment, there is a ferry service from Basseterre which is the capital city of St Kitts to Philipsburg in St Maarten.
If you are a couple seeking a small island where you can isolate and get away from it all, Montserrat could be the perfect spot for your honeymoon.
Calabash Festival is usually celebrated in the month of July in Montserrat.
Annually, the festival is held the week of July 18th as the island pauses to reflect on the eruption of the Soufriere Hills Volcano which occurred on July 18th, 1995.
This resulted in many of its inhabitants leaving the island.
The Calabash festival is a time of thanksgiving which often begins with a church service.
A key feature of the festival is the focus on products made from the Calabash fruit.
Rendezvous beach is the only white sand spot on the island which is accessible by hiking or by kayak.
Getting to Montserrat is adventurous. Travelers need to visit Antigua first and then take a small aircraft over to Montserrat.
Our next recommendation is the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica. This destination is ideal for a couple who just have time for a weekend getaway.
During the month of July, the island hosts its annual ReggaeSumFest which features local reggae artists.
Jamaica is world renowned for reggae music as it is home to reggae sensation, Bob Marley.
Other fringe events such as dance hall parties and beach parties are included as part of the festivities.
Jamaica is also known as an entertainment hotspot with many bars, discos and clubs situated predominantly in the Kingston and Montego Bay regions.
Furthermore, Jamaica is also an excellent destination for foodies who love Caribbean flavors of bammy, curry goat and festivals.
Are you a couple who love food and good music? Then Belize is the country to visit for the international music and food festival in July.
The event features both local and international musicians with a range of genres such as soca, latin beats, reggae, afro-beats, dance hall and so much more.
Restaurants on the island also take the opportunity to serve various local Belizeans dishes.
According to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, the Belize Barrier Reef is the largest reef in the Northern hemisphere.
It consists of several cayes, lagoons and atolls. As such, Belize is a remarkable destination for diving and snorkeling.
So if you are a couple who enjoy the outdoors, Belize could be suitable for an unforgettable honeymoon.
5. British Virgin Islands
Our final recommendation is the beautiful British Virgin Islands (BVI) for a honeymoon in July.
During this period, boaters from Puerto Rico go to the island of Virgin Gorda for a week of music, dancing and food.
Virgin Gorda is only 8 square miles and is home to the iconic beach The Baths.
This is a unique national park on the southwest coast of the island. This beach has massive boulders which forms sea pools which are a geological wonder.
There is a fee required for access to this beach. The Baths is an ideal location for swimming and snorkeling.
