What to Do on Your Waikiki Honeymoon

Beach It

Our Waikiki vacation rentals put you at the center of it all, and many are just a short walk away from Oahu’s world-renowned beaches, including Waikiki Beach. Spend your days soaking up the sun, swimming in the warm ocean, or trying water sports like surfing and paddleboarding. It’s also the perfect backdrop for your romantic sunset strolls.

Take a Catamaran Cruise

Discover the gorgeous waters of Oahu on a catamaran cruise. Many catamaran cruises offer snorkeling opportunities, dolphin watching, and stunning views of the coastline. Reserve a sunset cruise for an unforgettable evening to make your excursion even more romantic and memorable.

Hike Diamond Head

For couples seeking adventure and/or exercise, hiking Diamond Head is a must, as the crater is one of Oahu’s most recognized landmarks. The 1.9 mile out-and-back trail gains 560 feet of elevation and takes a little over an hour to complete. We recommend hiking Diamond Head in the early morning or evening, as it does get hot.  

Couple’s Spa Day

Enjoy ultimate relaxation after your Diamond Head adventure by treating yourselves to a couple’s spa day. Visit the Abhasa Spa at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, where you’ll find peace and tranquility in the serene tropical garden setting. The day spa offers outdoor cabanas, steam rooms, a whirlpool spa, showers, and complementary aromatic tea.

Beachhouse at the Moana

For a date night out, the Moana Ali’i Cut Experience for Two is the perfect option.
