Watersports, beaches and bays…Maui is an island paradise! Your honeymoon will never see a dull moment on this island in Hawaii that’s bursting with fun, sun and relaxation. Here are just a few Maui activities you can check out while you’re on the island. Though just a small sampling, it gives you an idea of the kinds of romantic fun you can have honeymooning on this lovely island.
Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours.
One extremely popular attraction, seeing Hawaii’s beauty from above is sure to leave you breathless. Soar over volcanic mountains, lush jungles, colorful hills and sparkling waterfalls from the hottest seat in the house. Get the views that you can’t get any other way! This particular operator did the helicopter shots for the Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic Park, but there are also other fun and reputable helicopter tour companies on the islands.
Hiking Haleakala Crater.
For one of the most unbelievable sunrise views on Maui, couples can head early to Haleakala National Park early and drive to the summit to watch the sun splash over the island, but the views are incredible even at mid-day! If you’re catching the sunset, dress warm because it can get surprisingly cold at that altitude. If you’re not up for it this time around, there are tons of other trails and parks around Maui ranging from easier walks to more serious treks, and all of them are beautiful in their own way. It all depends on your fitness level and what you want to see!
Pride of Maui Sunset Cruise.
There are lots of sunset cruises you can take during your Maui honeymoon, and it’s a romantic escape to the rolling blue Pacific you don’t want to miss! Sip cocktails while you hold your lover close, rolling across the sea while the sun goes down over the horizon in a blaze of orange, red and purple. On this cruise fresh dinner is prepared on-board along with a full open bar and live music!
Slack Key Show.
For a fun, casual date and a true cultural experience of Hawaii, see a slack key show! Masters of Maui music twang guitars and ukeleles while they croon in an island style completely distinctive in the world of American folk music. Start with dinner, see the show and then romance the rest of the night away while the warm, sweet vibes follow you to your next romantic adventure.
Ocean Riders Island Tours.
Cruise around the island of Lanai and see secluded beaches, pristine bays for snorkeling, mysterious shipwrecks and crystal coasts galore. Ocean Riders takes couples around the entire island to see wildlife like dolphins and turtles, and in between zooming across bays, under sea cliffs and through dolphin hideaways you’ll make stops for plenty of fun snorkeling, lazing on the beach and passing alongside shipwrecks. No matter who you take it with, you’ve got to try a tour on the water for some of the best snorkeling and romantic beaches you can find in Maui.
