The guests are on their way back home, the hangovers have worn off and the vows pronounced. Kick travel vaccines, passport processing and temperamental weather to the curb. After months of wedding planning, there is no simpler answer to your dream honeymoon than America’s 50th shining star: the Hawaiian Islands.
A Hawaiian honeymoon is no cliché when vacationing far away from Honolulu’s Waikiki Beach. Known as the Neighbor Islands, the five islands flanking Oahu make an ideal first trip as a married couple with lush environs, unrivaled panoramic ocean views and trademark Hawaiian hospitality. As to where to stay, opt for intimacy at one of the charming cottages and B & Bs dotting the Aloha State. Be it a coffee plantation or a cliff-side ocean-view outside your window, there’s no going wrong with one of these quaint properties. Check-in to island time and discover the bountiful beauty of Hawaii through slow travel.
