My fiancé and myself are trying to plan our 2 week long honeymoon in early October of this year and Hawaii has made our short list. (Bali and Maldives are also on our list) I am very into saltwater reef fish tanks and have dove the Caribbean on past vacations. Im very interested in diving in Hawaii or the South Pacific because 95% of what I see in my fish tanks are from these regions. My fiancé is going to get padi certified this summer to dive on our honeymoon. There are a few things that we want out of our trip and I was hoping someone could help me start some planning.
All 3 of our options have great diving so this is already a plus.
2. No crowded beaches:
It's our honeymoon so we don't want to stay on a big beach that has hundreds of people packed into a small area.
We are pretty adventurous and would love to rent a vehicle (a jeep would be awesome) so that we can explore any place that we end up at.
4. Good food!,
Even if we need to drive a little ways, we want have some good restaurants. We want to cook ourself a few nights but most evenings we want to eat out. We love to eat at the smaller fun places and not the 5 star hotels.
5. Mini trips:
We would really like to split our trip up in 2 or possibly 3 destinations. Maybe 10 nights in one area. 3 nights in another and 1 final night in another area.
We don't have a unlimited budget so we are are going to price all 3 options and decide what one will be best.
7. Language and safety:
The language and safety in some areas have us a little concerned. We only speak English but I'm not afraid to try my best at the native tongue.
Is Hawaii for us? Any recommendations on a island or area?
Thank you so much for your responses.
