14 Vacation Destinations Meghan Markle Loves — and What She Thinks You Should Do in Each
In Meghan’s guide to Budapest, she describes the city as one of the most “visually stunning” she’s ever visited. She also reminisced about morning runs along the Danube and eating pastries at one of the oldest cafés in Budapest, Ruszwurm.
Meghan visited New York City often for fashion week and more, so her advice about Brooklyn — namely that the borough is most fun when you’re eating and drinking — is on point. (Saraghina is great for both!)
Meghan visited Madrid with two friends, Markus Anderson and Misha Nonoo, in 2016. While there, she toured the Museo Prado, ate plenty of tapas and danced in the streets.
Meghan headed up the Amalfi Coast in 2016, opting to stay at the cliffside hotel La Sirenuse.
In her guide to Milan, Meghan describes “sheets of hand-torn pasta woven through luscious bolognese. Flirting with boys in Venice, when my best friend and I backpacked through the country for spring break … the perfection of a scoop of nutella gelato dripping down your chin.” She also recommends the Brera district for art fanatics and Il Montalcino for dinner.
Always the skincare fanatic, Meghan loved the Mayan clay treatments available in Tulum, beach yoga and touring the local ruins of Chichén Itzá.
Meghan called her time in Malta, where her great grandmother is from, “the most breathtaking trip in the most remarkable place.” For seafood heaven, head to Gozo first.
Iceland’s climate might be slightly different from other vacation spots Meghan raves about, but she was still taken with it, writing on her Instagram, “Let’s do this again sometime soon. You’re so pretty, and really nice too. Just my type.”
The location Meghan selected for a low-key bachelorette for her best friend Lindsay Roth, Hydra is two hours by boat from Athens. Bikes and donkeys are the only ways to travel around the island, and there’s not much to do, which is the whole point, Meghan wrote.
Meghan’s trip to Negril, Jamaica, was so delightful that she almost didn’t write about it so she could keep the “specific sliver of paradise” to herself. But instead, she recommends staying at the Rockhouse Hotel or the Pressley and eating lots of jerk salmon sandwiches.
It’s no longer a vacation spot for Meghan, but that might make her idea of a good time in London even more compelling, like a catching a play in the West End or hanging out at the Soho House, allegedly where she first met her husband.
