If you guys are like us and suffer from some major wanderlust, then today’s post is for you! For those of you who love to travel, you can attest to the fact that often times, some of the best memories are those unplanned moments along the journey. When I think back on my honeymoon, our go with the flow attitude created some of our sweetest moments–whether it was swimming in the middle of a sudden rainstorm, playing table tennis over a round of martinis, or stumbling on the best afternoon tea served on the beach–it was all about letting ourselves wander off the path and onto the memories of a lifetime.
We think the same goes for any honeymoon, but particularly for today’s featured destination: Hawaii. For many of us, this gorgeous crop of Pacific islands is all too familiar, so today, we thought we’d spark some unexpected ways to let yourself wander away from the typical expectations of a Hawaiian getaway. Let your imagination venture a little further than the typical visitor because we think you’ll discover the best there is to offer when you just Let Hawaii Happen.
With six major Hawaiian Islands, each with their own personality, today’s mini tour will guide us through our favorite three of those islands. Are you ready? Jet, set, go!
First stop is Kauai, which is known for the gorgeous Napali Coast. With plenty of opportunity to relax, this is the perfect first honeymoon spot, where you’ll have a chance to unwind and rejuvenate on the most lush of all the islands. While there, your journey can take you anywhere from helicopter tours of waterfalls and jungles to sailing along the green coastline and horseback rides destined for secluded beaches. Talk about romance!
Next up is Oahu, the perfect place for honeymooners ready for some amazing food, nightlife, art, culture, and shopping! There’s something to suit every taste bud–whether it’s the Vietnamese Cuisine at The Pig & The Lady in Chinatown (with a Pho French Dip that we hear is a must have!), Cornflake French Toast for brunch from Koko Head Cafe, or a farm-to-table tour at Kahumana Organic Farms (overlooking the mountain range of Lualualei Valley no less), you certainly will not leave feeling disappointed–or hungry!
Our final stop is Maui. While laid back and leisurely, Maui also features an intriguing mix of luxe resorts, adventurous activities, and charming small towns. It’s the perfect way to end your stay with a last minute adventure before you head home! Just imagine starting your day with a drive to the famous Haleakala Summit to catch a breathtaking sunrise from 10,000 feet. After a heavy dose of caffeine and breakfast, why not try your hand at rappelling down 100-foot jungle walls for an adrenaline rush like no other!? With a long list of lookouts, breathtaking beaches, vistas, and waterfalls, there’s no way you’ll head home without an incredible bucketful of memories to last a lifetime.
If you can’t tell, today’s post has us packing our bags already! Who’s ready to go with us and Let Hawaii Happen?
