Romantic Things to Do on the Big Island of Hawaii

Romantic Things to Do on the Big Island of Hawaii

Home to some of Hawaii’s most beautiful scenery, the Big Island is the ideal place to get romantic. Here are a few of the best ways:

Surround Yourself with flowers

If you want something more impressive than a bouquet, arrange a traditional floral lei greeting when you land on the island or book a table at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, where you can learn about orchids and even take one home as a souvenir.

Book a Couples Massage

For some romantic relaxation, there are plenty of Hawaii spas that offer couples massages. And if you don’t feel like heading out, many therapists come directly to your accommodation. 

Fly Over the Island in a Helicopter

There are multiple options for travelers wanting to see the Big Island from above; choose between scenic sunset flights and helicopter rides that reveal the sea cliffs and waterfalls that line the Kohala Coast. Some itineraries even involve flying over molten lava flows.

Set Sail on Kealakekua Bay

No visit to the Big Island is complete without taking a trip on the water. Opt for a sunset dinner cruise or a more adventurous snorkeling trip in Kealakekua Bay; you may even spot spinner dolphins along the way.

Stare at the Stars from Maunu Kea

As the state’s highest point, Maunu Kea offers some of the best stargazing opportunities in the world—head up around sunset for beautiful views and prime stargazing.
