Hawaii is the group of islands in the middle of Pacific Ocean which is grouped together as the 50th American state. It is a very popular tourist destination due to its rare combination of remote ‘desert island’ appeal and relative accessibility afforded by public highways, public transport and its international airport (‘Honolulu’). In this article, I detail what to look for in Hawaiian honeymoon packages.
There are a few ways of getting cruise boats to Hawaii, but this is not an advisable option for honeymooners because very few companies offer this, and it takes a very long time to get there.
In fact, you usually need to cross a dull, plain ocean to reach there.
It is also expensive, especially if one wishes to stay on the island for a considerable length of time, as this may mean booking a different trip back.
Therefore, given that most Hawaiians themselves will probably honeymoon elsewhere, the most feasible option for getting to a Hawaiian honeymoon is flying there.
The state’s international airport (Honolulu International) serves airports in the US, Australia, Samoa, Tahiti, the Phillipines, Japan and South Korea.
Therefore, tourists from Europe and elsewhere need to transfer at one of these places.
Attraction, atmosphere and what to look for
Attraction as a honeymoon destination
With its pristine beaches, spectacular mountains which almost rise out of the ocean and great diversity of animals and wildlife, Hawaii is considered a tropical paradise.
It thus provides a haven for honeymooners who just want to be alone together for a week or two in romantic tranquillity. Atmosphere
Despite its ‘tropical island’ appeal, however, Hawaii has a Western sensibility.
This is mixed with the more traditional Polynesian culture - sometimes harmoniously, sometimes acrimoniously.
What to look for in honeymoon packages
Due the unique, special nature of the honeymoon, most honeymooners will opt for luxury and will not want to worry about banalities such as cooking for themselves.
To this end, many of the best Hawaii hotels and resorts offer all inclusive vacations with a range of accommodation, eating and activity options. Final word
The newlyweds will need to consider if they want more of an adventure holiday with activities such as hiking, mountain biking, watersports and scuba diving.
Alternatively, they may opt for a relaxing holiday with walking, sightseeing and spa treatments.
