Honeymoons in Hawaii
Hawaii’s breathtakingly beautiful, green mountainous landscape has been made familiar in various movies and television series. A honeymoon in Hawaii will be worth it if for no other reason that to marvel at the natural beauty. Hawaii enjoys the title of the most unique state within the United States. No other state is composed entirely of islands, grows coffee, is technically a part of Oceania, or boasts such an original native culture. Those planning a honeymoon in Hawaii are often attracted by the tropical climate, which is of course another unique feature.
The majority of tourists are acquainted with the eight largest Hawaiian islands, including the island of Hawaii itself. This is the largest island, or main island, and has been given the affectionate nickname of ‘Big Island’ so as not to be confused with the name of the state. Hundreds of islands, covering a distance of more than 2400 km make up the state of Hawaii. Probably most well known as a surf destination, the home of Pearl Harbour, luaus – an Hawaiian party - and its volcano laden landscape, Hawaii has more to offer. When you book your honeymoon in Hawaii you can participate in film festivals, an international hula dancing competition, and various other cultural events. Famous for their big smiles and friendly, welcoming nature, you will be warmly welcomed by the locals when you arrive for your honeymoon in Hawaii.
