Posted on: 15 January 2016

Maui is one of the top vacation destinations in the world, and millions of newlyweds have spent their honeymoons on the island. The gorgeous scenery, warm turquoise ocean, beautiful beaches, and a variety of activities and dining choices makes it an ideal place to spend your first vacation with your new spouse. When visiting Maui for your honeymoon, make sure you do the following things:

Spend a Day Beach Hopping

When it comes to fantastic beaches, there is no shortage on the island of Maui. Each beach has its own personality and something to offer, whether you are looking for tranquil waters for swimming and snorkeling or active surf for surfing or body boarding. One of the best ways to experience Maui's beaches is by spending a day of your honeymoon just driving along the coast and stopping off at any beach that catches your eye. 

Watch the Sunrise Over Haleakala

Haleakala is a large dormant volcano near the center of Maui. The summit of Haleakala is at an elevation of 10,000 ft, and tourists flock to the top of the volcano to enjoy an absolutely gorgeous sunrise at the highest point on the island. In order to get to the summit prior to sunrise, you will have to wake up extremely early in the morning while it is still dark, so it is often recommended that you do this excursion early in the trip while your body is still adjusting to the time difference.

Enjoy a Beachfront Dinner

Maui has a huge variety of excellent restaurants, and beach restaurants are a huge draw for vacationers and honeymooners alike. Whether you are looking for a gourmet dining experience or a more laid back waterfront meal, you will be able to find a beachfront hotel with beautiful views that suits your preferences and your budget. Beachfront restaurants on Maui tend to be very popular, so it is a good idea to make reservations in advance, especially if you hope to get a prime table at sunset.

Drive the Road to Hana

Hana is a small town on the eastern shore of Maui, and many people consider the Road to Hana to be one of the most beautiful drives in the world. This drive takes your on a very windy coastal road where you will be surrounded by lsuh green foliage, expansive ocean views, waterfalls, and even a black sand beach. The drive typically takes several hours, as the speed limit is low and many people choose to park and explore trails or beaches along the way.
