Exotic Honeymoons: Destination - Hawaii!
Although Hawaii is still the number one honeymoon spot for those who are tying the proverbial knot in the U.S., planning your post-nuptial trip to such a location may be a bit more involved than it sounds. When most folks think of Hawaii, they picture it in generics terms and don't realize that there are actually six main islands that comprise this tourist area - each with its own special set of characteristics that are designed to entice travelers from around the globe. Kauai - known as the "Garden Isle" - offers the excitement of plunging cliffs, the longest river on the islands and a canyon that offers a breathtaking 3,000 foot drop. With a year-round average temperature of between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, this wet and wild destination location is the place to be for sparkling beaches and special events, including festivals that are offered throughout the year. For those who are archeologists at heart, Oahu provides its guests with wonderful glimpses of the past through its ancient temples. In addition, this island is known for its top-notch beaches and outstanding surfing opportunities. If you're a history buff, you might be interested to know that Oahu is home to Pearl Harbor. Molokai is one of the more interesting of the Hawaiian islands, in that it's small enough to be traversed by car in just a couple of hours, but - here's the surprise! - there are no traffic lights. This is a gorgeous little island, offering sea cliffs, verdant valleys, beaches of white sand and a magnificent barrier reef. Still a truly natural island, Molokai is a "must see" if you're looking for a place for truly stunning scenery and a bit of R&R. Maui not only offers the world's largest volcano, but also gives visitors the opportunity to get a peek of the humpback whales that migrate to Hawaii each winter. Known for its many valleys, this is the ideal spot to catch a glimpse of marine life in their natural habitat, since numerous sea creatures make these valleys their home. The "Valley Isle" is definitely where you'll want to go if you're interested in exploring nature. The biggest island of Hawaii - known as the "Orchid Isle" - is also the youngest. Complete with an astounding 12 climate zones, there's much to see when you visit this youngster of the deep. Unlike other islands, this one experiences growth spurts as the lava from its volcano flows down the south shore to where it meets the sea. No matter what your interests are, Hawaii has something to offer - and is especially enjoyable for honeymooners, who will experience a sense of travels to distant lands when they meet with the diversity of this wonderful group of islands.
