Aloha! If this is your first visit to Hawaii, you're about to find out why it's a perennial favorite of honeymooners. Upon landing in Honolulu, you'll be greeted by the scent of tropical flowers and the warmth of tropical tradewinds. Heavenly!
During your visit, indulge in a luau (the Royal Hawaiian's is renowned) and sip Mai Tais on Waikiki. Be sure to visit historic Pearl Harbor and take in the Polynesian Cultural Center.
On Maui, swim at Kapalua Bay, voted one of the nation's best beaches, or hike into the rainforest to a secluded waterfall. Later, enjoy the nightlife on South Kihei Road.
On the Big Island of Hawaii, you must spend a day at the awe-inspiring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
There are various Hawaiian travel specials, generally available year-round to fit nearly any budget. You may prefer a cozy cottage for two on the Garden Island of Kauai or a romantic high-country manor on mystical Lanai, rather than a stay in a major hotel. Whether you want to surf, shop, cycle, play championship golf or enjoy a secluded snuggle with your sweetie, Hawaii has the perfect island for you.
