We recently celebrated our babymoon in Hawaii!! We didn’t have very many choices while selecting a location because the Zika Virus is everywhere right now! Thankfully Hawaii hasn’t had one case of Zika!
We started off our trip by spending 4 days and nights in Maui. We rented a condo in Lahaina, the condominium was called Lahaina Shores.
This was was the view from our condo. It was right on the beach and walking distance to the adorable town of Lahaina.
Tip: if you go to Maui, a rental car is a must because everything is pretty spread out.
Our first full day we spent at Black Rock Beach.
The snorkeling here was to die for!
Hi twin bump!
The next day we spent at Kapalua Beach. This was a very small beach but it was very cozy and beautiful.
Our last two days we spent at Napili Beach, this was by far our favorite beach in Maui (exactly why we spent 2 days here).
We spent every day in Maui lounging at the beach and the evenings were spent exploring downtown Lahaina.
We went shopping and ate dinner in town every night, it was perfect!
Our final five days in Hawaii were spent on Oahu specifically Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. We were nervous about Waikiki because it’s in the middle of a big city. We realized fast that we had no reason to be nervous, we LOVED Oahu! It was our favorite island.
We got lei’d by the sweetest little Hawaiian lady when we arrived at the Honolulu Airport.
We stayed at the Hilton Waikiki. If we go back, we will stay here again. The hotel is beautiful and just a couple blocks from the beach.
One morning, we rented a car and went to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. This was one of my favorite activities from our trip.
We took the plantation train tour.
And of course we tried some DELICIOUS Dole Whip! YUM!!
We stopped at Pearl Harbor, always a must see in Hawaii.
One evening we went to the luau at the Hale Koa Hotel!
We had an absolute blast.
The dinner was delicious!
The entertainers did a great job of keeping everyone entertained throughout the show.
We spent one afternoon snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. This is a marine park where you can swim and snorkel. It is beautiful and a must do in Oahu!
Judd climbed to the top of Diamond Head after snorkeling!
How beautiful are these views?
Every evening we wandered around the restaurant/shopping area in Waikiki. We were amazed at how upscale this area was!
Our last two days were spent lounging on Waikiki Beach. Tip: The best section of Waikiki Beach is directly in front of the Hilton Waikiki. They have coves so you can relax and not worry about waves.
We rented chairs and umbrellas both days, the rental prices were astronomical but those two days of pure relaxation were exactly what we needed!
It was the perfect babymoon!! 🙂
[…] took our first vacation as a family of four (unless our babymoon to Hawaii counts lol). We went to a waterpark in Canada and had the best time. You an read more about that […]
