Fun Things to Do for Couples in Hawaii

Given the scenery, Hawaii is all but built for romance. So, it stands to reason couples will find countless ways (and an endless array of places) to pass the time—whether they’re planning a honeymoon, anniversary getaway or straight-up rendezvous.

Attend a Luau

Each night beginning at 4:15 p.m. on the terrace on Ka’anapali beach, the Hyatt Regency Maui resort & Spa features a nightly “Drums of the Pacific” performance, torch lighting ceremony and luau. An authentic imu ceremony reveals the main dish to be served: Kalua pua’a. Everyone gets to wear a shell lei. The all-you-can-eat buffet features everything from lomi lomi salmon to ulupalakua beef, taro and a dessert bar with pineapple cake and bread pudding.

Swim With Dolphins

Get up close and personal with Hawaii’s dolphins, penguins and sea turtles at Sea Life Park Hawaii. Those who opt to book the “Royal Dolphin Swim” take a dorsal fin ride. There’s the option to enjoy a simple shallow-water “fin shake,” too. Alternatively, you can get to know the park’s sea lions. A trainer will teach you how to give commands and allow you to hop in the water with the affectionate creatures. Reservations also can be made to hang out with stingrays, learn about their anatomy, feed them and touch their strangely slippery skin.
