Hawaii has always been a lovers paradise. Beautiful beaches, dreamy palm trees, sun kissed bodies and warm breezes make the perfect equation for all lovers. Here is a short list of some of our favorite locations.
From Here To Eternity Beach
In the famous movie from 1950s ‘From Here to Eternity’ beach with Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, Deborah Kerr. Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr frolic in the water and on the shores of Halona Cove. Now, Halona Cove which is right by Halona Blowhole is affectionately called Eternity Beach. It’s a beautiful secret hideaway. You too can recreate the famous love scene with your special someone. The Waikiki Trolley actually stops here on Blue Line. The stop is called Halona Blowhole and it’s between Hanauma Bay Lookout and Sandy Beach.
What’s better than frolicking through the park with your lover? At Kapiolani Park you can do much more than just frolic. There is a walking path to experience breathtaking views of Diamond Head. If you venture into the center of the park you will see a variety of beautiful birds. Make sure you look up a family of (rare) Green Parrots lives in the park. There are several picturesque beaches, like Queen’s Beach or Kaimana, along the walking path to explore.
The Waikiki Aquarium is also located along Kapiolani Park and is a stop on the Green Line for the Waikiki Trolley. The Waikiki Aquarium specializes in aquatic animals and plants that are native to Hawaiian waters. They have two Monk Seals which are on the endangered species list. There are only about 1400 Monk Seals left in the world.
Ala Moana Center
Enjoy a day of shopping and dining. Ala Moana Center is the largest open air mall in the world and has many amazing restaurants. In particular, there is the Vintage Cave made for oenophiles (connoisseur of wines) and connoisseurs. The Vintage Cave is a food, wine and art experience that does not come cheaply. Their French-Japonais Prix Fixe menu is $300 per person. They have a cafe that is open from 11am to 4pm that is much more affordable and you can still enjoy their renaissance architecture and art.
There are over 30 different restaurants and at least 300 stores. There is something for everyone and every budget. So you can go all out at The Vintage Cave or just share an ice cream sundae. The Waikiki Trolley stops at Ala Moana Center every 10 minutes. Just hop on the Pink Line outside of your hotel.
You can not go wrong with a Hawaiian sunset. In the summers sunset is at 7pm and during the winter sunset is at 5pm. Anywhere along the beach in Waikiki is really the best place to watch sunset. The Moana Surfrider is Waikiki’s oldest hotel and their Beach Bar is an ideal place to have a famous Mai Tai, enjoy local music and let the sunset carry away any worries.
