M ā kena Beach, Maui ISLAND OF HAWAI´I The island of Hawai‘i, right at the intersection of pure beauty and pure bliss, is an island made for exploration. Let your senses awaken to the sounds and textures of the landscape—birds and waterfalls, lava fields and sun-warmed black sand. Romance is everywhere: in thousands of twinkling stars, fragrant flowers, hypnotic sunsets and a soothing serenade of island music. INSIDER TIP: While many visit Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park during the day, the fiery glow of Halema‘uma‘u Crater can be even more dramatic at twilight. You can view the active lava on a hike, helicopter or boat tour. KAUA´I Kaua´i is made for romance. Idyllic lush settings, quiet crescent beaches, luxurious resort pampering—it’s all here, just waiting for the two of you. A refuge for body, mind and heart, “rejuvenating” is a word often used on Kaua‘i. INSIDER TIP: Explore the towering cliffs of the N ā pali Coast on the North Shore by taking a boat tour or cruise. In the summer you can even explore N ā pali’s sea caves by kayak. O´A HU O‘ahu is a vibrant gathering spot with a unique blend of relaxation and excitement. Wiggle your toes in the warm sand. Listen to the melodic sound of the surf. Stroll into colorful shops, where local crafts, gorgeous jewelry and fine art dazzle the eyes. Savor every delectable bite of fresh and irresistible farm-to-table cuisine and explore the vibrant nightlife. Experience the buzz and energy of O‘ahu.
