Romantic Notions on Oahu

Romance on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

The Hawaii that people dream of is filled with romance from natural beauty and adventure to sophisticated resorts, shopping and nightlife. Romance is found throughout the island of Oahu, known affectionately as "the heart of Hawaii."

One with Nature

Natural beauty inspires dreams and love. A tropical island in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Ocean is the perfect setting for a romantic interlude.

    -Stroll along hand-in-hand on any one of the 139 white-sand beaches surrounding the island of Oahu and share in the quiet and beauty.
    -Watch as the ocean turns the diamond-like reflections from the sun into a silver pathway to stars.
    -Be wooed by a beachfront candlelight dinner to the sounds of palm trees rustling in the cool sea breeze keep tune with the ocean lapping on the shore.
    -Paddle out to sea on a kayak adventure together with a break for a picnic on the secluded beach of Mokulua Island, just off shore of from Lanikai Beach on the windward side of Oahu.
    -Explore the allure of Oahu with a scenic drive around the island where the bustling city life of Waikiki transforms into the serene countryside of Oahuís North Shore.
    -Discover the romantic places to kiss from the panoramic lookout on Mount Tantalus to the breath-taking views of Diamond Head with the sparkle of Honolulu city lights to dazzle.
