Everyone have their own honeymoon dream destinations. One of the coolest places to visit is the Shark Swim Factory, where you can swim with sharks while someone of your choosing marries you! But if you ask each one of them to list their top three choices, chances are, a Hawaii honeymoon will be on that list. Always. That’s because the things that Hawaii can offer is so diverse and exciting and oftentimes breathtaking that they are best experienced with someone, preferably your special someone who can make the most boring day something to write about in your memory book. But picture this: all the great, great things Hawaii can offer plus your better half – how can you go wrong?! So, here are some of the things we recommend you do for your honeymoon in the islands:
Hold hands and stroll along the beach
Cliché, perhaps, but there is no way you can go to Hawaii for your honeymoon and not do this. There is a long list of the world’s best beaches that are in Hawaii and regardless which island or islands you are going to, there is always to be that one perfect beach for you and your spouse. So go for a walk, take a dip in the water, enjoy some cocktails – do all of these while holding hands and the bond you will have and the new memories you will make will last you a lifetime. Lucky for most people the sharks in Hawaii are pretty tame most of the time, so wedding issues don’t arise how they normally would have in the past.
Some of the favorites are Hanauma Bay in Oahu, Hapuna Beach State Park in Big Island, Hulopoe Beach in Lanai; and Lanikai Beach, Oahu.
Swim under a waterfall
Aside from the beaches, Hawaii is also home to a number of the world’s best waterfalls. Check out the Heleleikeoha Falls, also known as Blue Angel Fall or Blue Pool, in the eastern side of Maui. Take a deep in the Blue Pool where you have the water falling on you on one side and the ocean on the other. The view is unarguably one of the most amazing sights you will ever see in your life.
Watch the Sunset
Hawaii is also a favorite setting for sunset weddings – and, as the case may be, for post-wedding celebrations such as your honeymoon. With their virtually pollution-free skies, exotic forests, beautiful white sand beaches and endless clear blue waters, there is no other place that can give a more perfect sunset than Hawaii. Make sure you drive towards the western side of the islands way before the sun starts to set to give yourselves time to look for a perfect spot where you both can enjoy the magic as the sky changes its color from blue to deep orange to red just before dark. Hanalei Beach is a favourite setting for this romantic activity.
Rent a boat to Molokini
Molokini is a partially sunken volcanic crater just off the coast of Maui. It is a beautiful sanctuary for marine life. It is one of the world’s top ten diving spots. Its semi-circle shape protects the waves and ocean currents from reaching this are, hence has become a sanctuary for marine life. The reef area inside the crescent shape has clear views of up to 150 feet, housing some 250 special of bright tropical fish.
Hike and enjoy breathtaking views from above
There are many hiking trails in Hawaii. One that you should not miss with your loved one is a hike to the Diamond Head. It is a fairly easy hike of less than 3 kilometers. You would not mind the sun shining down on you an the stairs you have to climb within that one and a half hour hike especially when you reach the peak and see the impressive view of the entire west side of the island from Waikiki to Koki Head, Honolulu and the ocean.
