Oahu, Hawaii is one of the most romantic places to visit in the world. Every year, couples travel to this beautiful location for their honeymoon, with some opting to go all out for a destination wedding. The beaches and scenery are well worth the cost.
Whether you’re there celebrating your nuptials, your anniversary, or just taking some time for a couple’s get-a-way, you will want to find something fun and exciting to do. Here are some top activities for couples in Oahu.
Attend a Luau
A trip to Oahu would not be complete without a trip to a luau. Paradise Cove is the most popular spot for this cultural event, and gives you the chance to see how people ate, celebrated and lived on the island through the years. There are many local delicacies to tempt your taste buds, including lomi salmon and cold haupia. Local entertainers will then offer a show with great music and dancing to round off the evening.
Take Up Surfing
When you want to get some exercise in, why not try something different. Couples can enjoy a day of surfing in Oahu, where once only royalty was allowed. When you do choose this great water-based activity, look for a business that is fully licensed with qualified instructors. Some offer private classes, and you could even have a couples-only session to mark your special day.
Who does not like a juicy, sweet pineapple? The 40 minute drive from Oahu will take you to this popular attraction that displays some of Hawaii heritage. While there, take a ride on the Pineapple Express that will take you to the fields of pineapples, mangos, and coffee beans. When you get back, stop by the gift shop where you can buy fresh pineapple, Waialua chocolates, and other gifts.
Visit the North Shore
Why not take a day trip to the North Shore? It’s only 25 minutes from Honolulu by car. There are many shops and secluded beaches for the romance. One thing you have to do is try the local cuisine while in the area, and get your photo by the Haleiwa sign. You can not miss it on the Kamehameha Highway.
Oahu is a great destination for couples for all types of breaks. Luaus are great fun to attend and give you an insight into the culture of the Hawaiian people. If you want fun and romance, surfing and the North Shore are definitely two activities to add to your list.
