For the newlyweds who want a good mix of fun and relaxation, this is the best place to be! There are so many fun adventures on the island like snorkeling, the road to Hana, hiking (with breathtaking views might we add), live shows and dancing, and whale watching (in the colder months)! However, it’s easy to switch into relaxation mode with all of the spas on the island that offer couples massages, sunset cruises, romantic dinners, or simply just laying out on the beach (we recommend going to the black sand beaches, they are gorgeous).
