Babymoons are more than just a trendy reason to get away. These romantic rendezvous, typically taken a few weeks or months before baby arrives, allow parents to make memories and connect before welcoming a new addition to the family.

A babymoon can look different for every couple depending on their budget, location and ideas for activities. But if you are struggling to pick a place, narrowing down your options can help.

To aid lovebirds in deciding where to take their next pre-baby vacay, all-inclusive resort pioneer Club Med recently compiled a list of the top babymoon destinations worldwide. Researchers initially rounded up 50 top spots based on the number of searches by travelers before ranking each place on the list based on a total score taken from six babymoon-friendly metrics.

These six babymoon-friendly metrics included:

  1. Number of romantic hotels in the city
  2. Number of restaurants in the city
  3. Couples activities in the city
  4. Honeymoon spots in the city
  5. Country happiness score
  6. Safe LGBTQ travel index

Based on these scores, they found that Paris was the most popular babymoon destination overall, with a score of 90.8 out of 100. With 596 couples activities in the city, 527 romantic hotels and 236 honeymoon spots, Paris’ wide variety of charming spaces certainly earn it the nickname of “the city of love.”

London takes second place with the most restaurants among the top cities, from Italian to Asain you can find a variety of cuisine that makes this the perfect destination for foodie couples. If arts, culture and staying out are more your style, then third place winner New York City, or “the city that never sleeps,” is sure to deliver.
