Our Favorite Things to Do in Hawaii
When the words “tropical” and “honeymoon” are combined in a sentence Hawaii is one of the first places most people think of and rightfully so. After all, this collection of islands is famed for its friendly people, beautiful resorts and awe-inspiring, highly romantic landscapes.
But, just what can honeymooners do during a stay in Hawaii is a question that often gets asked. While specific attractions vary based on the island or islands you choose to visit during your honeymoon, here are some of our favorite things to do in Hawaii to help you plan out your adventure:
- Go beach hopping: Whether you’re staying right on Waikiki or your plans take you closer to Oahu’s North Shore, a Hawaiian honeymoon isn’t complete without a day or two at the beach. Each of the islands boasts its own top beaches with their own distinct traits. What you’ll find, however, is that all of them offer beautiful sights, warm waters and plenty of activities that go beyond swimming. Depending on where and when you visit, you can also enjoy sailing, snorkeling, whale watching, hang gliding and a whole lot more during a trip to a “typical” Hawaiian beach. Should you desire a truly romantic excursion, consider a moonlit walk along the Hawaiian shores or get hooked up for beachfront horseback riding.
- Go hiking: If you want to get a true taste of the beauty that is Hawaii you have to get out of a car or off the tour bus to really experience the splendor. One of the best ways to do this is to spend a leisurely day hiking some of Hawaii’s most notable terrain. Some of the best places to go include Hanakapi’ai Falls in Kauai, Koko Head Crater trail, Kings Highway and the Wa’ahila Ridge Trail.
- Take an aerial tour: Not ready to hit the trails on foot, but still want to see Hawaii’s splendor in a more intimate and romantic way? If so, a small plane or helicopter tour of some of the famous sights might be in order. The advantage here is you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful volcanic mountains and lush valleys without having to break a sweat in the process. Plus, these tours can be arranged for two, which means your alone time can largely remain so.
- Get dangerous: If you and your honey want some serious adventure and you don’t mind getting wet in the process consider cage diving with sharks. Yep, you can do this in Hawaii! Oahu’s North Shore is famous for its guided shark encounters.
