Honeymooning in Hawaii

One of the best things about wedding planning is taking the time to choose the perfect honeymoon destination. So have you considered Hawaii? With its cultural significance, luxurious vibe and gorgeous weather, Hawaii is a very popular choice for honeymooners.

With scenic views and plenty to do, here are some of the activities we suggest trying if you and your other half are lucky enough to find yourselves in the paradise of the Pacific.


Instead of being one large island as you might think, Hawaii is actually made up of six main islands and a series of smaller atolls and islets. As a result, there are plenty of crystal blue seas to snorkel in while you’re in Hawaii, and an abundance of marine life to explore. Book a snorkelling tour to be guided by a professional and keep your eyes peeled for green Hawaiian sea turtles and swathes of tropical fish – you’re bound to make some incredible memories under the waves.

Volcano tours

Some of Hawaii’s volcanoes, which formed the surrounding land mass, are still active today. For example, Kilauea is one of the world’s most frequently active volcanoes; the current eruption started in 1983 and is still continuing.

However, there’s nothing to worry about: tour guides take visitors and locals alike to see the volcano’s outflow, and it’s such a popular activity that there’s even a visitor centre and overnight accommodation nearby. If touring a volcano is something you’d like to tick off your bucket list, we recommend seeing it at night as well as during the day; the lava flowing into the sea is a spectacular sight against the backdrop of a starry night.


Whether you and your partner are keen hikers or just fancy a gentle stroll while you’re on honeymoon, Hawaii is the ideal destination. There are more than 150 miles of hiking trails in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and the Kona Coast on the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail (also known as the King’s Trail) will see you walking among temples and petroglyphs found within the island’s array of ancient settlements.


Relaxing on the beach

With so many beautiful islands to explore in Hawaii, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to relaxing on the beach. You should consider hiring a car if you want to see these beaches given that they’re so spread out, but the various views alone are well worth it. For example, Hulopoe Beach in Lanai is a beautiful stretch of sand along the island’s southern coast. In the waters of this sunny bay, you’ll find amazing swimming and snorkelling conditions.

If the conditions are right in the sky, watching the sun set from Hapuna Beach on Big Island might mean you and your partner catch the ‘green flash’ - a truly amazing honeymoon experience. If you’d prefer to find somewhere with a little more peace and quiet, simply lay your towel down on Makena ‘Big’ Beach in Maui – it’s a huge stretch of sand that never feels crowded. 

Hawaii is one of the world’s most romantic getaways, and with such a variety of activities on offer across the islands, you’ll never want your honeymoon to end.
