10 Amazing things to do on your Hawaiian Honeymoon
By Bailey Leclerc
- A day on the North Shore. The North Shore of Hawaii is famous for it’s big wave surfing in the winter months. Many of Hawaii’s most well known beaches are located on the over seven-mile stretch of shoreline. Pipeline, Sunset and Waimea Bay to name a few.
- There are only a few places on earth where you can see a live volcano. One of those unique places is on the Big Island of Hawaii. At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park you can see actual lava flow into the ocean. A pretty spectacular sight.
- Hiking and water falls go hand in hand in Hawaii. There are several to choose from throughout the islands. A favorite of many is the Pools of O’heo or the Seven Sacred Pools on Maui. After the long drive on the Road to Hana cool off with a dip in these beautiful pools.
- Feeling a little adventurous? Kauai Backcountry Adventures gives tubing expeditions that run you through old irrigation canals from the Lihue Sugar Plantation. It takes you through lazy stretches, dark tunnels and even a few rapids.
- What’s more romantic than a beautiful sunset? Mt. Haleakala (Big Island) is well known for it’s sunrise but a little known secret is that sunset is where it’s at. Drive up in the late afternoon and pack a picnic dinner. Go ahead and stay for a bit of star gazing while you’re at it.
- Go for a glider ride. Honolulu Soaring located on Oahu will take you on a highflying adventure that you will never forget. If you’re feeling like a dare devil sign up for the Aerobatic flight that will take you to zero gravity, loop-d-loops and much more.
- A trip to Hawaii wouldn’t be complete with out some snorkeling. Hands down the best place to do it is Molokini off the shores of Maui. This partially submerged crater is home to over 250 different marine life species. The best viewing is in the morning and it’s only accessible by boat. So arrange plans in advance.
- Are you a movie buff? Several movies such as South Pacific, Blue Hawaii & the blockbuster hit Jurassic Park were filmed on the Island of Kauai. Sign up for the Alii Movie Excursion to see over fifteen movie locations.
- Have you ever wanted to swim with dolphins? What if you had the opportunity to swim with dolphins in the wild? There are several different dolphin excursions off the coast of Oahu that allow you to get in the water and swim with spinner dolphins.
- Last but definitely not least visit the black sand beaches of the Big Island. Or maybe the green sand beach which is a little more challenging to get to. If you are on Maui go discover the red sand beach. There is a beach of every color in Hawaii and they are all breath taking. Perfect for swimming, soaking in the sun and exploring.
