The Big Island of Hawaii has long been loved as an amazing vacation destination for travelers of all types from near and far. When you’re looking for a place to relax in sunny, tropical style, it checks every box on the list. However, the beautiful scenery, amazing attractions and lineup of versatile activities also make it an ideal place for couples looking to enjoy a romantic adventure together. Whether you can’t wait to spend your time on the sand, love to get out on the waves as a duo, or prefer to dine your way through a stay, the Big Island has it all and more. The following are just a few of the many romantic activities for couples to enjoy who set their travel sights on this inviting destination.
Book a Couple’s Massage
A little pampering goes a long way when it comes to creating an amazing romantic itinerary for your time on the Big Island. When you’re looking to enjoy a refreshing and revitalizing moment alongside the one you love most, make sure to make time for a couple’s massage while you’re here. Booking an oceanside spa treatment can elevate the romantic experience even further by pairing relaxation with impeccable island views. Fortunately for couples headed this way, the Big Island has a multitude of spas to pick and choose from that offer up a variety of services as well as custom destinations to receive treatment. When luxury is a priority, book your couple’s massage at Fairmont Orchid’s Spa Without Walls. This open-air massage experience gives couples the added luxury of listening to the sounds of waves crashing along the shoreline while receiving a traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage and added exfoliation treatment upon request. These sessions can be booked to include Champagne as well!
Enjoy a Romantic Meal with Culture Included
If you’re the couple that connects over mouthwatering meals, then booking a Hawaiian Luau is a great choice for your romantic getaway. This traditional event gives couples the chance to experience Hawaiian culture while pairing that learning curve with dance, music, amazing food, and fun! A luau is hosted to pick up as the sun goes down, adding a romantic aesthetic to the ambiance as well. From fire dancers and hula performers to the telling of Hawaiian tales, it’s a dining experience that promises to delight. Some of the more iconic luau experiences to consider on The Big Island include Voyagers of the Pacific Luau, Island Breeze Luau, Sunset Luau and Mauna Kea Luau just to name a few.
Make it a Picnic for Two
While a luau is always a lovely and flavorful experience, couples that prefer to dine in privacy will want to consider planning a picnic for two at Liliuokalani Park and Gardens during their time on the Big Island. This lush and breathtaking space is designed in the style of a traditional Japanese garden that hosts stunning ocean views, right in the heart of Hawaii. From the stone lanterns and arched bridges to the koi ponds and teahouse, visitors will find that planning a picnic at this stop is the ultimate in tranquil and romantic moments. While you savor your hand-picked fare from a blanket on the grass, couples can make the most of panoramic views of Hilo Bay. It’s free to enter the garden and the memories you make here promise to be priceless.
Book a Private Helicopter Tour
For some couples, nothing is more romantic than taking their getaway to new heights. If this sounds like you and your loved one, booking a private helicopter tour during your Big Island adventure is a must. Taking in the fantastic scenery from the sky promises to be unforgettable for those looking to pair adventure with memorable vistas. Tours can be booked to last anywhere from an hour to 2-hours at a time and feature vantage points over volcanos, valleys, sea cliffs and more. Couples can even book a tour at sunset when even more romance in the mix is the goal. Big Island Helicopter Tours is a great place to start when you’re ready to book your couple’s adventure.
