If you’re looking for a laid-back romantic getaway destination, then we think you should plan a Molokai honeymoon. This friendly Hawaiian Island has fewer tourist facilities than other tropical locales, which means during your Molokai honeymoon you’ll likely have the island’s beautiful beaches to yourselves. The island is a veritable paradise with pristine beaches, impressive waterfalls, volcanic mountain peaks and lush, green jungles. Molokai also has the highest sea cliffs in the world, which are perfect for hiking and exploring. Just offshore, you’ll find one of Hawaii’s largest barrier reefs making the diving and snorkeling particularly top-notch here.
If you're looking for an authentic way to experience Hawaiian culture and outdoor adventure, a Molokai honeymoon is ideal!
When to Go
