Falling in Love Again in Hawaii
If it’s been awhile since you’ve been married, perhaps it’s time to take a much-needed second honeymoon to reaffirm your love for one another. After all, as the years pass and your children grow up, you may feel yourselves reconnecting again for better or worse. Rekindle the passion you once felt by going on a Hawaiian vacation. Leave all the details up to your tour guide of Hoku Hawaii Tours. Where are the best places for romantic spots and hideaways?
Get Active on Kauai
From private villas to secluded beaches, the island of Kauai is the perfect place to reconnect. If you love to be active, you can explore the awe-inspiring Waimea Canyon, go horseback riding in the rainforest, take a kayak trip down the Wailua River, or hike along the Na Pali Coast. If you’d rather take it easy, read on.
On Oahu, take in the glorious sunset on a catamaran cruise in Waikiki. Don’t forget a visit to Papohaku Beach on Molokai, with its white sands and romantic settings. Shop one of the local farmers market on Maui, then take in a sunset at Haleakala. The Maunakea Visitors Center will give you a full-fledged astronomy lesson as you gaze at the stars up above.
Lighthouses and Waterfalls
At the tip of Kauai is the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Lighthouse that affords 360-degree views of the island. You can even check out whales frolicking off the coast in the winter time. You could also visit the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, which is a beautiful sanctuary for seabirds native to Hawaii. If waterfalls are more your speed, check out Opaekaa Falls or Wailua Falls. Pair this with a helicopter ride above the cavernous Mt. Waialeale and you’re in for a real treat.
State Parks and Gardens
There are plenty of state parks and gorgeous gardens to stroll through as a couple. In Kauai, you’ll find Kokee State Park, known for its breathtaking native plants, forest birds and hiking trails. Don’t miss a visit to the Kokee Natural History Museum or the Kalalau Valley Lookout for a view of the Kalalau Valley and Napali Coast. On the south shore, McBryde Garden houses the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home to nearly 260 acres of gardens. Allerton Garden is only 80 acres in comparison but no less inspiring. You can enter the National Tropical Botanical Gardens from here. Head to the Limahuli Garden and Preserve, boasting 1,000 acres and three different ecological zones. You’ll learn all about early Hawaiian culture at this hidden gem.
Water Adventures in Oahu
Snorkel at Hanauma Bay or hit one of the many Oahu beaches for some tanning and relaxing. There are group outrigger canoe rides available off Waikiki Beach, or sunset sails that could give you a glimpse of a humpback whale. Enjoy a picnic together at Waimanalo Beach, boasting a four-mile beach with calm waters.
There is no shortage of fun things to do as a couple as you fall in love again on Hawaii!
