If you want a Honeymoon which is just beach, water and beachside bars/restaurants then you've lots of choice around Asia.
The question is really 'Is that all you want to do?'

What about Florida or the Caribic?

To be Zika free - that eliminates the US and most of South America and the Caribbean. Also Zika is in India Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Cameroon Angola and a couple other places in Africa.

So for beach and no Zika in January you mostly have Australia, New Zealand, the areas around the Med, and some places in Africa

I don't know how warm the water is in the Med in January.

There's yet to be a case reported that was caught in Hawaii.

Also a pretty ideal honeymoon spot I'd suggest.

Yes I should have said the continental US. However, the water in Hawaii isn't all that warm - at least when I was there, we needed wet suits. I guess it depends on where you are from as to whether that water would be warm enough to go into. I know people from the north will swim in the waters in Miami in January whereas the people from Florida think it is too cold.

Ah, didn't realise that about the water temperature in Hawaii. I haven't been there since I was 10 :)

All things consider I kind of feel Australia is probably the best bet, especially up in Queensland. Maybe the Whitsundays?

Down south in Australia the water is also pretty cold for my liking. It has to be really hot for me to want to go in. I imagine NZ is a similar story, but I can't say since I've never been!
