Hi bees! My fiance and I are getting married in less than 2 months! We are so excited for the wedding and honeymoon! Looking for reccomendations of things to do, see and eat in Maui and Kauai!

Probably an obvious one, but the Road to Hana is stunning. There’s an app that you can get that tracks where you are on GPS and gives you a ‘tour’ as you go. It tells you what all the stops are along the way and and teaches you about Hawaiian history and the history of the area as well. There were food trucks along the way that were fantastic as well.

In Kauai, the Beach House is a great place for a sunset dinner along the beach. A snorkeling boat trip along the Na Pali Coast was a highlight for us, and Hanalei Bay was worth the visit. I recommend attending a luau too!

itsalmosttime : been going to Kauai my whole life. Love it. Went this last Christmas with my boyfriend and hands down the BEST part of our trip was the afternoon boat cruise. Captain Andy’s sunset cruise up the Napali coast was unbelievably gorgeous. Coming back at sunset on the boat with them playing the romantic island music, we saw dolphins, and they include dinner and free drinks. AMAZING. I would do that hands down every single time I go. My cousins just did the tubing excursion in the mountains where you tube down old irrigation tunnels and they loved that. Food wise, go to the markets near you to get fresh fruits. YOu can google your area and the markets to see what time, days during the week they are open.
I had the best snorkling experience on the big island, and feel Kauai is kind of lacking in the snorkling department but you can find some good spots. Have a great time!!!

itsalmosttime : Do the Maui Pineapple Tour! It was a lot of fun!!! We also loved snorkeling every day and did scuba dive while there. Also recommend a Luau, we did the Feast at Lele. In Lahaina, our favorite restaurant of the whole trip was Kimo’s.

- Wedding: June 2019 - City, State
I went to Kauai a year ago and the best thing I did there was this tubing adventure: https://kauaibackcountry.com/tubing/
Keep in mind that Kauai is honestly more laid back – things close early from what I remember compared to larger islands like maui.

In Maui eat at the Mill House – we’ve been a few times and its always the best meal we’ve had on the island. The drive from the resort area is not too long, and its nice to get away from the tourist restaurants – its a way better value for a fine dining experience when you get away from the resort area/coast. Farm to table dining, in a tropical plantation setting. The food and staff are both on-point. Arrive early before sunset and enjoy a walk around the gardens before dinner. https://www.millhousemaui.com/

On Kauai :
Cap’n Andy’s tour of the Na Pali coast + snorkeling is so so wonderful. Highly recommend.
For a beautiful brunch you’ll never forget : st. Regis hotel, Makana terrace – make sure you leave a good few hours to sit out on the terrace and enjoy this. It’s reasonable and so, so lovely. We did it the morning we had to leave, and I just wish we’d had more time.
A few photos:
These are both the terrace😍
Dolphins swimming with the boat ❤️

ahsoka : ladyjane123 : LadyBear : not to hijack OP’s thread BUT I am going to Kauai for my honeymoon next month! This will be my first time visiting Hawaii. We will definitely be booking Andy’s sunset Na Pali coast cruise. We are also interested in booking a helicopter tour. Any recommendations? Or specific luaus to check out? Thanks so much!

ohdarling : wonderful! Have fun!
We didn’t do a helicopter tour or luau.
It was raining sporadically , so we opted to go hiking and see Waimea canyon overlook instead. It is breathtaking –
i think the best way to see Waimea canyon is indeed the helicopter tour, but it looked like visibility was awful for them the week we were there- so there are options on foot if that’s the case!
we Opted to rent snorkeling gear and go on our own – and we loved it so much, that’s the only other thing we did 😂 we spent our time in the water.
but if you do find great companies to recommend, maybe come back to this thread and drop recommendations here – I’m now leaning toward going back to Kauai for our honeymoon 😍
