Honeymoon Spots We Love: Fogo Island Inn, Canada

Posted by Adam Warner

Hoping to really get away from it all on your upcoming honeymoon? Look no further than Fogo Island Inn located on a tiny island just off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Constructed right over top of the island's rugged coast, this gorgeous 29-room property is the romantic retreat you've always been seeking.


Featuring a sleek, all-white exterior that juts out toward the Atlantic from the shoreline, the impressive design is the first immediate draw for newlyweds. The building was intended to model the traditional fishing huts commonly found on the island.

Inside, the hotel has been furnished by practically the entire community. From regional craftspeople designing the interiors to fisherman constructing the furniture, the hotel oozes with local influence. Meanwhile, all 29 suites offer floor-to-ceiling views of the North Atlantic Ocean, contemporary design, walk-in showers, natural wood floors, custom made organic fiber beds, and wood-burning stoves.


When couples start itching for activities, there's no shortage of unique opportunities. Newlyweds can enjoy boatbuilding orientations, stargazing, hiking excursions, trips to local islands, craft programs, bread making, biking, and even watching ice floes meander by as you relax in a rooftop wood-fired hot tub. All the while, the hotel's highly-acclaimed dining room -- open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- focuses on local, seasonal produce.

But then again, this is your honeymoon in one of the most remote places in North America. Cuddling up together next to your wood-burning stove just might be the perfect honeymoon activity.
