How to Have the Ultimate Honeymoon in Maine
Are you and that special someone in need of some pampering? The Boothbay Harbor region offers top-notch spa services that are sure to relax and rejuvenate. Try a hot stone massage or facial together at the Sea Glass Spa, or soothing manicures at About Face. Choose a local spa and leave feeling healthier and closer to one another.
Explore the Area
There’s nothing finer than taking in crisp, fresh air alongside a loved one. The Boothbay Harbor region is ideal for couples who enjoy exploring the great outdoors! For those who prefer the water, the Schooner Eastwind offers romantic sailing excursions to nearby lighthouses. Another nautical activity perfect for couples is a Cap’n Fish whale watching tour! This once-in-a-lifetime activity provides an opportunity for newlyweds to cozy up on a boat together and experience the magic of whales surfacing in the water beside them. It’s a magical experience to remember forever!
Exploring coastal Maine’s gorgeous landscape on foot is also a wonderful experience. We promise that hiking hand-in-hand along our rocky coastline helps couples discover each other all over again! The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is one of the most romantic places to take a stroll. For most of the year, this pastoral spot boasts blossoming flowers as far as the eye can see. Beginning in November, however, the gardens are transformed into a winter wonderland during Boothbay Botanical Gardens Aglow. If your honeymoon in Maine takes place during this beautiful time of year, be sure to dedicate an evening to the biggest and brightest Christmas light display in Maine!
Wine and Dine
What’s a honeymoon in Maine without fine wine and some unforgettable dining experiences? Newlywed couples always love The Pub at Newagen Seaside Inn. This elevated establishment takes farm-to-table to a new level, featuring only ingredients fresh from the earth and sea. The dinner menu includes light fare, flatbreads, and savory main plates. We recommend trying the divine Maine Lobster Bake or sharing the scrumptious Sirloin au Poivre! Then, have an after-dinner drink overlooking the sea. Other romantic restaurants in Boothbay Harbor that serve phenomenal dinner and drinks include Ports of Italy, Boathouse Bistro, and the Boothbay Harbor Country Club.
