From the beaches to the backwaters, there is plenty of natural majesty to highlight your big day and beyond.

Curious about what makes this an ideal location for your honeymoon? Below are a few ideas to help you start planning:

Indulge in a couples massage

Enjoy a unique honeymoon in Orange BeachAfter spending the last few months or years planning a wedding, don't feel bad if you and your new spouse are a little tight across the shoulders. There are plenty of spas in Orange Beach that offer couples massage treatments, such as the Studio 3 day spa, where you and your loved one can be treated to nearly an hour and a half or pure relaxation. The couples massage at Studio 3 also includes a foot soak. 

Bond over a game of golf

If you and your sweetheart have yet to hit the links together, your coastal getaway is the perfect opportunity. Even if you've never swung a club, you'll have an amazing time bonding over the game. If you want to incorporate a little extra golf into your weekend, you can find accommodations located on the greens! Many of the award-winning courses in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Perdido Key give you the option of playing nine or eighteen holes. If a full round of golf isn't for you, you can start slow with a bucket of golf balls at the driving range in Orange Beach.

Enjoy the natural beauty

Nature has all the drama you'll need for a lazy honeymoon. Relax and listen to the waves crash against the shoreline. This same sound may have been the backdrop to your wedding ceremony days before. Fall asleep to it at night. Wake up to it in the morning with a glass of coffee or tea on the deck of your honeymoon rental. Relax. This is what you came here for, and you'll be glad you took the time to do so upon returning home.

Celebrate with Sunday brunch

Speaking of a lazy weekend, no Southern honeymoon would be complete without Sunday brunch. Throw your own brunch as a sweet surprise for your new husband or wife, or take them to a unique spot like Brick N Spoon or Fisher's in Orange Beach. Celebratory Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's are in order!

Experience activities unique to the coast

Rent a paddleboard on Lake Shelby. Enjoy a sunset Dolphin Cruise. Ride the zip line at Gulf State Park during the full moon. Take the ferry over to Dauphin Island from Fort Morgan. Parasail high above the water. Rent bicycles and ride the miles of bike trails. You can even work on your recreational diving! Remember, there is no need to sacrifice safety or comfort when searching for adventurous and fun activities on your honeymoon.

Active, relaxed or both, your honeymoon in Orange Beach, Alabama can be just what you hoped for.
