Many people go to Hawaii to celebrate romance. Hawaii is a great place to get married, honeymoon, and celebrate a wedding anniversary. So if you have any of those events coming up or you’re looking for ways to rekindle the flame with your partner, here are some top ideas for romantic things to do in Hawaii.
1. Take in a beautiful sunset.
There’s really nothing much more romantic than sitting beside each other to watch the sun sink into the ocean. Make watching sunset even more memorable with a sunset cruise/sail or a picnic at a beach. Some hotels can prepare a picnic basket for you. Alternatively, it’s easy to pick up picnic supplies at one of the local grocery stores. Make sure you don’t just pack up and leave as soon as the sun is down. Watch for the amazing colors of the sky after sunset for an even more memorable sunset.
If you are on Maui, consider going to Haleakala to watch sunrise. There’s something very special and romantic about watching sunrise on Haleakala when you are snuggling up to your sweetheart under a blanket.
2. Take a helicopter ride to discover the islands from the air.
