Following a gorgeous December wedding that took months of planning, Howie Dorough and Leigh Boniello needed to unwind. And what better place to do that than the beautiful white beaches of Antigua?

The Backstreet Boy and his new bridge jetted off for a four-day island getaway and had the time of their lives.

"The beaches had some of the most amazing white sand we have ever seen," Howie tells OK!. "We would have loved to stay longer."

Their favorite part of their romantic honeymoon?

"We had an amazing candlelit dinner at the beach," Leigh, 33, recalls. "It was a gift from Howie’s brother, Johnny. The resort set up a private gazebo with tons of tropical flowers and candles. We had a chance to enjoy our first dinner as a married couple."

As for the future, Howie, 34, and Leigh "definitely" plan on having children, but not yet.

"Right now, we want to enjoy traveling and being married," Howie says.
