Hawaii's beautiful isles lure romantic travelers world-wide to its luxurious coasts and gorgeous sunsets. Its lush tropical feel can make us feel like we're on our own private paradise. If you are thinking about Hawaii as your next romantic destination, let us help with our island-by-island guide, complete with where to stay, what to do and links to even more planning resources.
What to Pack:
You'll probably be eager to get out and explore some of the island's natural landscapes so walking shoes and comfortable clothing are a must. Swimwear and casual evening wear should also be included. If you plan to trek up to higher elevations be sure to include a light jacket or sweater as the temperature is cooler in these areas of the islands.
Make sure your trip is romance-packed by bringing along a few romantic essentials. Travel candles, massage oils, bubble bath and fake rose petals are fairly compact enough to include without running into storage issues.
Start considering some locations, restaurants or events you'd like to visit while you are there. With the help of your travel agent or lodging staff, make reservations in advance so you won't need to worry about it while enjoying your time together.
