Honeymoons in Hawaii

The islands that make up Hawaii are more than soft white sands, deep blue seas and endless cocktails, although this is great. Here you can also take part in scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, surfing and trekking. Hawaii can be as active or as peaceful as you want it to be.

A honeymoon in Hawaii is without doubt something special and it's not hard to see why. Getting here from South Africa is relatively simple as flights are regular from all major airports via Los Angeles. Before you know it, within 24 hours you can be relaxing on a palm fringed beach, underneath the tropical sun. The islands themselves present a myriad of things to do so why not go snorkelling on the island of Kauai, or cruise by sunset around the beautiful island of Molokai, or how about watching the magnificent sunsets from the top of Haleakala mountain. Finally a visit to Hawaii isn't complete until you have paid a visit to the world famous Waikiki beach. Whatever you fancy, Hawaii offers a dream destination in which to base your honeymoon.
