Sure, saying that Hawaii is a romantic destination is not exactly a revelation. Romance flourishes when skies flaunt brilliant rainbows and prismatic sunsets, the atmosphere is blissed out, and the people are warm and welcoming.
So let’s take it one step further and get specific. Oahu provides all of the basic ingredients for romance but these three spots put the icing on the cake.
Escape the crowds of Honolulu and head north to Roy’s Beach House at Turtle Bay in Kuilima Cove on the North Shore. Although the venue is part of the Turtle Bay Resort, non-guests are welcome to drink and dine. When you have your back to the island, your eyes on the serene ocean, and your hands holding your partner, you won’t be able to help but smile. Enjoy Chef Roy Yamaguchi’s tantalising local delights and toast with a brightly-coloured cocktail to you and yours!
Back in Waikiki, get cosy at Duke’s Waikiki where it’s perfectly acceptable to dine barefoot on the beach! This locale *is* the spirit of Hawaii. A drink with an umbrella, a band filling the air with sounds of the islands, and an ocean breeze wafting around you will work a spell of romance.
Of course, romance is not necessarily one-size-fits-all, and we’ve heard time and time again that a couple who gets active together stays together! Get the blood pumping by tackling Diamond Head as a dynamic duo. The zig-zag hike up to the iconic volcanic tuff is a prelude to the overwhelming beauty of the scene at the summit. Turquoise water, endless stretches of sand, and the two of you on top of the world - what’s not to love?!
