Once you and your husband or bride-to-be have decided on the Hawaiian Islands for your honeymoon, there is still a lot of work to be done. There are six visitable islands in this remote archipelago, and many unique areas and resorts on each of those islands to choose from. Here are the top honeymoon destinations in Hawaii.
Top Honeymoon Destination #1: Wailea, Maui. Perhaps the most desirable destination for honeymooners is the Island of Maui, and the most desirable spot in Maui is Wailea. South Maui has it all. Stunning sunsets, soft white sand beaches, and calm, tepid waters perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Wailea Beach is one of the best beaches on Maui, in Hawaii, in all of the United States for that matter. There are a number of fabulous resorts and world-class dining opportunities all within this tropical paradise known as Wailea. The only drawback is the price. Wailea is one of the most expensive areas to honeymoon in Hawaii.
Top Honeymoon Destination #2: Lanai City, Lanai. The Island of Lanai, also known as the “Private Island” because it is privately owned, will feel like your very own. Quiet and cozy, this island and all its splendor is perfect if you prefer your honeymoon to be a genuine getaway from the rest of the world. There are three places to stay on the Island of Lanai – two gorgeous high-priced resorts and one very reasonably priced hotel. If you want to lounge on a breathtaking beach with not a single footprint other than your own, choose the Island of Lanai for your honeymoon destination.
Top Honeymoon Destination #3: Po’ipu, Kauai. Kauai is all too often overlooked as a honeymoon destination because of its frequent rainfall. But that rainfall is also responsible for making the Island of Kauai the most lush and beautiful and romantic of all the Hawaiian Islands. Named the “Garden Island” for its greenery, the sights on Kauai are so spectacular that they have served as the backdrop for many Hollywood films, including the opening shots of Jurassic Park. Top resorts and world-class dining help make Po’ipu one of the most attractive honeymoon destinations in Hawaii.
Top Honeymoon Destination #4: Waikiki, Oahu. Of course, if you desire the most traditional Hawaiian honeymoon, you can’t go wrong in Waikiki. With lots of entertainment and thrilling nightlife, this concrete jungle is as popular among tourists from around the globe as ever. And it provides you access to the rest of the magnificent island of Oahu, including the windward side, the Waianae Coast, and the wonderful North Shore.
Congratulations and aloha! I hope you enjoyed reading about the top honeymoon destinations in Hawaii.
