Honeymoon in Hawaii

Hi Ya'll! We will be on our honeymoon the beginning of June, were getting married on May 31, 2014. We would like to have at least 7 nights, maybe 10 nights, on at least one island. We would like to spend about $3000- #3500 for the both of us. And we would like it to be as special and romantic as possible.

We are also an active couple, so plenty of sightseeing ideas and activities. I was there in Hawaii as a young kid, and my fiancee has never been, so basically well be seeing it for the first time together.

We are a couple in our late thirties, so instead of a traditional registry, we are using a Honeyfund registry, which basically your guests can contribute monetarily to your honeymoon. Please give me all your suggestions, someone we may know may give the excursion or adventure as a gift.

Thanks,

Heather

Welcome to TripAdvisor!

First thing - you really must pin down your nights ... how many nights will you be in Hawaii.

And you need to break down your budget - extract the cost of the flights and look harder at what your nightly accomodations budget. We really need that number to recommend hotels/resorts for you.

Unless you have 10 nights or more - you should stick to one Island.

There is NO way we can recommend activities without knowing what Island you want to visit. And neither can your friends. What if you decide to go to Kauai ... and your guests give you a catamaran snorkeling sail on Maui!

So - it's time to dig in and learn about the Islands. Pick up a copy of "Hawaii for Dummies," a highly-recommended travel guide that covers all the Islands. And get a good map as well. Pull up www.gohawaii.com. It's terribly commercial - but helpful for first timers.

Stay in touch - and we'll help you get your feet on the ground.

(And congratulations!)

Take a look at the Summary of Each Island, found under Top Questions on this page. It's a good, quick overview of what each island has to offer.

When you're breaking down your budget be sure to include car rental. You need a car anywhere other than the city of Honolulu.
