With sun-drenched beaches, secluded coves, panoramic scenery everywhere you look, and sunsets that set the world on fire, O‘ahu is seemingly torn from the pages of a romance novel. The island offers new couples, honeymooners, and lifelong lovers alike plenty of opportunities for romance. Personally, we like to think the reality here is better than any fantasy.
Need proof as to why O‘ahu is the most romantic getaway in Hawaii, and possible the world? Where else can you and your loved one take in the panoramic beauty of the coast from a mountain lookout, sip wine on a white sandy beach, frolic together in the surf on your own tandem kayak, dine on sumptuous cuisine at a AAA Five Diamond restaurant, ride horses on the beach at sunset, and take in a jazz concert, all in the same day? (Okay, that would be one action-packed day, but it is possible!)
Wind Beneath Your Wings
The Pali Lookout features both history and amazing views and is a great start to a romantic day. Gaze out in awe and wonder at the mountain-encircled Windward Coast from the 1,000-foot lookout, holding hands as the gusting wind literally takes your breath away. Next, make your descent to the valley floor below and head to Kailua, Lanikai, or Waimānalo Beach. Finding a secluded patch of sand to share with your special someone and a picnic or beverage of your choice is a fantastic way to while away the day. Rent a kayak and go exploring, or never leave your beach blanket. It’s up to you!
Fabulous Island Fare
O‘ahu boasts an incredible food scene, including many delicious and world-class restaurants right here at Ko Olina. There are 2 AAA Five Diamond restaurants that feature lavish multi-course meals and top notch Oahu accomodations, sure to warm your hearts and your stomachs. Chef Mavro in Honolulu offers tremendous French cuisine with immaculate wine pairings, while Le Mer in Waikīkī has stunning views of the sea. If you can tear your eyes off each other, that is.
Adventures at Your Romantic Getaway In Hawaii
From romantic horseback trail rides on the beaches of the North Shore to sunset cruises, O‘ahu has romantic activities for every couple. Check out a live jazz show at the intimate Blue Note in Waikīkī, take in a play at Mānoa Valley Theater or Diamond Head Theater, sweep your love off their feet at a tango or salsa dance class, or get a couple’s massage at Ko Olina on your own private beach.
O‘ahu is intimately close to nature, and that spirit surrounds our visitors. The perfect romantic getaway in Hawaii, our island is full of love, aloha, and romance. Whether you are falling in love for the first time, or all over again, we know you and yours will love being in love here. Aloha!
