Hawaii honeymoon itinerary
Keep in mind that Hawaii has six regularly frequented islands, so it’s impossible to see it all in one week. We have focussed on Oahu, Kauai and Maui.
- Arrive at Honolulu and get settled into your hotel or resort.
- Hit the beach and explore Honolulu. Take in the historic Polynesian Museum and get some shopping in.
- Head back to your resort and enjoy your first night dining in while overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean.
- Rent (or buy) some snorkelling equipment and spend the morning getting acquainted with the local aquatic life. Alternatively, you may like to scuba dive the waters instead.
- Be sure to fit in a few hours at a day spa getting face and body treatments.
- Book a romantic moonlight catamaran trip and watch the sun go down as you float on the water.
- Wake up early and hike the Diamond Mountain Monument for sweeping views of the island.
- Take an afternoon flight to Maui and travel to Wailea to your new resort. Spend the afternoon soaking up the quiet beaches.
- Take a chartered helicopter tour of the island for breathtaking views of canyons, waterfalls and mountain ranges.
- Enjoy traditional Hawaiian Poke for dinner.
- Visit a local farm for breakfast and sample locally grown papaya and coffee.
- Take a chartered whale watching tour and see breaching humpbacks in all their glory.
- Take a morning flight to Kauai, rent a car and drive up the Eastern Coast to Wainiha for lunch in the tropical forest.
- Stay in Wainiha or drive back down to the South Shore for the night.
- Get a couples massage.
- Wake up early and hike to the top of Waimea Canyon, called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Say goodbye to Hawaii.
- Take a plane back to Honolulu for your return flight.

Hawaii honeymoon cost
Prices in Honolulu will be higher than further out from the city. How much you spend on your accommodation will also predict how expensive your stay will be overall as most resorts offer excellent dine-in options and prices vary by place. You might also find that your accommodation is far away from a local city, so keep that in mind when you book.
- An average or budget-conscious room in a hotel or resort will set you back from $1,000–$2,000 for a one-week stay for two. If you came to splurge, a suite in one of the higher-end resorts will set you back $500–$1,000 a night.
- Most food items are imported into Hawaii, so the average cost of food and other essentials might surprise Australian visitors used to Southeast Asian holidays. Expect to pay about $20 for a meal at an average restaurant and about $5 for a beer. If you go grocery shopping, expect to pay about $6 for a loaf of bread and $3 for a litre of milk.
- Return flights from Australia to Honolulu can drop as low as $500 when on sale with a budget airline and can reach up to $1,500 for full-service economy tickets. Flights between islands cost about $100, but it’s important to book in advance as fares tend to skyrocket closer to the departure date.
