It’s no wonder so many just-married couples choose Hawaii for their honeymoon destination.

This archipelago has everything anybody could ask for – marvellous nature, perfect climate, great food, and so many options for entertainment and adventure.

If you are still thinking about whether Hawaii is the right place for your unforgettable honeymoon, this guide can help you decide.

 

How to decide which of the islands is the one for you?

Hawaii consists of six major islands and each of them has something to offer to honeymooners.

What all of them have in common are pristine blue water and incredible nature.

We will guide you through all of them so that you can choose the perfect one for your Hawaii honeymoon.

 

Maui – the most common choice for Hawaii honeymoon

The island of Maui is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations for young couples and the most famous one.

There are many resorts to choose from if those are the places that you seek for your perfect honeymoon.

Some offer peace and privacy that you might want to have on your honeymoon, while others are great for couples who seek adventure on their first trip after tying the knot.

Maui has a lot of luxury resorts

 

Kaanapali Beach

It is a great destination for young couples who like to relax, swim or snorkel.

The sand is powdery and white, while the water is crystal-clear. If you and your spouse are not fans of long walks, don’t worry.

You will be able to find everything that you need within walking distance from whichever hotel you choose at Kaanapali Beach.

Wailea Beach offers a bit more secluded atmosphere than Kaanapali Beach. There are many luxurious hotels and places to stay and entertain.

Honeymooners who like golf and other outdoor activities usually opt for this part of Maui island.

Whichever type of Hawaii honeymoon you prefer, it would be such a waste to leave Maui without visiting Haleakala National Park.

Or, at least you can try hiking one of the dormant volcanoes.

 

Oahu

The island of Oahu is famous for its many luxury resorts and natural beauties.

The sandy beaches go without saying, but what’s specific about this island is that it has some amazing rain forests.

North Shore is one of the best towns to choose for your active honeymoon.

Depending on the time of year you visit, you will be able to enjoy different activities.

If you would like to try surfing on your Hawaii honeymoon and you choose winter to exchange vows, North Shore is the place to be.

On the other hand, if you come here in the summer, the water will be just perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

If you don’t mind traffic and the usual hustle and bustle of a big city, maybe you can spend your Hawaii honeymoon in Honolulu or Waikiki.

Naturally, the cities are the centre of all happenings and they provide much more to those seeking entertainment and culture when on a vacation.

If you fall in love with these cities, you might even decide to come live here.

Trust us, you won’t be the first ones transporting your belongings to another state where your best honeymoon memories took place. 

 

Kauai

Kauai island is great for nature lovers.

Tropical rainforests cover most of the island which makes it perfect for couples searching for adventure in nature.

It has great hiking destinations, so you should definitely spend your Hawaii honeymoon on Kauai if you are fans of active holidays.

There are some plant species that can be found here and hardly anywhere else in the world.

You can go to Allerton Garden and see all of them. 

 

Big Island

Big Island might be the one that has it all.

If you want to enjoy sunny beaches with your spouse, you can even choose which colour of sand you like the most – white, green (Papakolea) or black (Punalu’u).

What might be interesting is that the island is still growing due to its volcanic activity.

Speaking of volcanoes, there are two active ones Kilauea and Mauna Loa. They are what attracts most of the visitors to this island.

The enthusiasts who want to explore a volcano more closely can even see the lava flow in this Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Big island welcomes all couples who would like to spend their Hawaii honeymoon here

Newlyweds who decide to spend their Hawaii Honeymoon on Big Island should bring some clothes for all four seasons if they want to explore the entire island.

We advise them to make an ultimate packing checklist before embarking on this trip.

On one side they will have sunny, sandy beaches, while on the other there is a snow-capped mountain of Mauna Kea.

Snowball fights and snorkelling just within hours from each other – how’s that for adventure?

You can also experience a lush rain forest and a barren desert on the same day.

Be that as it may, you will probably need more days than you originally planned to enjoy all the natural beauties of the island. 

 

Lanai

Lanai is a small island that can hardly offer types of adventure that its bigger neighbours can.

On the other hand, the seclusion this island boasts is something that is irreplaceable.

That’s not so bad for a young couple who just want to enjoy their love on their first trip as a married couple.

This island is definitely not one of the best places to travel solo

If you want to experience some adventure while staying on this island, you can rent an all-terrain vehicle and explore on your own. Or you can go see the turtles or spinner dolphins

 

Molokai

Molokai is mostly made of steep cliffs, but there are also beaches that are famous for their beauty.

There are no commercial attractions on this island, and that is what makes it so special.

People here basically live the same way that their ancestors did.
