The Hawaii honeymoon is a popular choice for newlyweds. The perfect weather, the easy accessibility, and the variety of activities and amenities available all make Hawaii a perfect honeymoon destination.
Not sure which Hawaiian island to visit after saying "I do"? Consider the following Hawaii honeymoons:
Hawaii Honeymoons: Kauai
Hawaii's "island of discovery," Kauai offers postcard-perfect scenery: lush vegetation, ginger-scented jungles, towering waterfalls, tropical flora and magnificent canyons. The vast majority of this island's land is dedicated to agriculture and conservation, keeping it a nature lover's paradise. When you're not exploring the rugged coastline, relax on a sunshine-drenched beach.
While on Kauai, visit the remote Napali Coast. Here, 3000-foot cliffs rise from the ocean. Waimea Canyon, the richly hued 14-mile long natural wonder is a photographer's dream. Visit the Kilauea Point Wildlife Refuge and observe exotic wildlife including red-footed boobies, wedge-tailed shearwaters and the Nene goose.
Hawaii Honeymoons: Lanai
The "most secluded island," Lanai, once known for its pineapple plantation, is now an important five-star resort location perfect for couples seeking a secluded getaway.
The surf conditions are gentle here, and most of the terrain is rugged and only accessible by 4x4 vehicles. Take advantage of the beautiful great outdoors: hike, whale-watch, sail and snorkel. The Munro Trail will lead you to the island's highest point boasting breathtaking views of the entire island. And beachcombers will love Shipwreck Beach, named for the wreckage of a rusting liberty ship offshore.
The laidback vibe and luxurious resorts and golf courses offer private vacations for honeymooners. Sip cocktails on the beach and enjoy your new marriage.
Hawaii Honeymoons: Maui
Maui is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. The laidback atmosphere and natural beauty makes this island a romantic dream destination.
Maui has over 80 beaches. Swim, surf, sunbathe or go for a midnight stroll, the Maui shores are among the planet's most beautiful. Lava cliffs, undeveloped shoreline, resort-lines beaches and soft sand can all be found here. Haleakala National Park is the largest dormant volcano in the world and shouldn't be missed.
Maui boasts great landscape variety. Honeymooners can explore the island's terrain on horseback. Mountains, cliffs, waterfalls and exotic flowers texture the scenery. Or hike through North Maui's Ke'anae Arboretum. The waterfalls especially define the Maui experience. Let a tour guide lead you to where you can swim beneath the cascading waters. Divers may wish to head to the Molokini reserve where you can boat dive in a no-fishing zone. Swim with the fish and hope to catch site of a humpback whale during whale season.
Hawaii Honeymoons: Oahu
Oahu is the island to visit if you're seeking the excitement of island nightlife. Experience fine shopping and dining, luxurious spas, museums rich with island history, and warm evenings by torchlight. The world-famous Waikiki Beach boasts pristine white sands, swaying palm trees, and inviting all-inclusive resorts.
Just a few minutes outside of Waikiki you'll find rainforest. Explore Oahu's cliffs, waterfalls and mountains, and then try your hand at surfing in the turquoise ocean.
History buffs will opt to visit the U.S.S. Arizona Pear Harbor. A boat ride will take you to the monument, located over the warship's wreckage, where you'll visit an important moment in world history.
If you're looking for a romantic honeymoon getaway, you'll find it in Hawaii.
