There seems to be a trend in the world of honeymoon travel where couples are encouraged to choose a destination that’s off the beaten path—locations that you probably haven’t thought of are now being favored over the popular spots (like Mexico and Puerto Rico) that many newlyweds often venture off to after tying the knot.

Here at PW, we’re all for the idea—as we always say, your honeymoon is supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, so why not take this opportunity to visit somewhere really extraordinary? (And somewhere where you won’t encounter every other couple who said “I do” on the same weekend you did.)

Croatia, Portugal, and Guadeloupe and Martinique are just a few of the spectacular places you’ll find on Harper’s Bazaar‘s list of new places to honeymoon in 2016; they include lovely hotel suggestions and the best time of year to visit each spot, too.

We have a feeling you’ll find a honeymoon destination on that list that’ll fit the bill perfectly.
