Hawaii is one of the most popular destinations in the USA and the world to honeymoon and for a good reason. The tropical setting boasts pristine beaches and a relaxed setting that is the perfect way to start your marriage. Hawaii really has something for everyone. Whether you are looking for adventure by hiking volcanos or surfing, to take in the culture by enjoying a luau and some typical Hawaiian music played on the Ukulele, relaxing on the beach or a bit of a mix.
Choose the Right Island
Each island in Hawaii offers different attractions and activities where you can stay busy or spend your honeymoon sleeping in during the trip. When you want to know which Hawaiian island for a honeymoon, it’s important to research each island to determine where you’ll feel like you fit in depending on your personality and preference. Lanai is the perfect place to visit for couples who consider themselves to be beach bums and don’t want to stray too far from the sand. You can visit the island during the shoulder season in the fall and spring when the rates are lower and fewer tourists are present.
Maui is ideal if you’re health-conscious and want to participate in yoga or hike one of the dormant volcanos. You try several different physical activities that include stand-up-paddle-board Pilates to learn how to balance on the open waters with the help of a local studio. There are also high-end boutiques and Hawaii’s luxury vacation rentals when you want to enjoy a regal setting.

Boat rentals are available with yachts or sailboats available, depending on your experience. You’ll need to provide proof of your expertise and will have the freedom to set your own schedule.
With a sailboat, you can sail at your own pace without feeling rushed by a timeline or schedule. You can stop in a particular area to take in the views or fish, making it easy to create your itinerary that works around your mood.
If you prefer to feel pampered and accommodated while spending time on the water, you can hire a charter, which comes with a crew that navigates the boat and is available to meet your needs. The crew will provide you with plenty of privacy and can show you around a specific area that you want to explore. You’ll have an easier time discovering hidden waterfalls or dormant lavas with experienced guides who are familiar with the area.
Sailing tours are also available if you don’t mind having the company of other couples or families who are visiting Hawaii. Taking a tour is considered the be the most affordable way of taking a boat ride and often includes accommodations that include special viewing decks and glass bottoms to view the marine life underneath.
