Picnics Are Always Romantic
How about a picnic on the hillside of a well-known art museum, sitting well above Honolulu, Hawaii? Sure, Honolulu is nice, but why not get an escape from all the noise and enjoy Makiki Heights Drive. This tranquil property is where Anna Rice Cook used to live. She also founded the Honolulu Academy of Arts Show. Eat your picnic food in peace then take a walk, holding hands, and view the five galleries in the museum. Or you can even wait until after your walk and have a picnic that the Spalding House Cafe will delightfully prepare. Take in the gorgeous views of the sculpture garden at the museum while you eat a delicious lunch and enjoy your partner’s company.
Is Your Partner a Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, or Elvis fan?

A perfect Hawaii Valentine’s Day activity, you will be able to sit back and enjoy the artist tribute show with a variety of types of “celebrities” featuring fire and knife dancing, live music, dinner packages, and hula dancing.

This is the perfect gift for a couple who are in need of some time to unwind on Valentine’s Day in Hawaii.
Let’s Talk About Those Breathtaking Sunsets
There’s nothing like cuddling with your partner and watching the sun go down together. What’s even more beautiful is a sunset in Hawaii – Experience it for yourself with these amazing destinations:
Take in the Waikiki Sunset
Take a cruise with Atlantis Cruises and enjoy the clear waters of the south shore of Waikiki. While on the cruise, you will have four different options for dinner. You’ll be able to listen to some music and eat delicious food while the sun sets. Not to mention, every couple will leave holding a complimentary rose – Could this get any more romantic?
Why not take a cruise in the sunset, hosted by Trilogy Excursions – Take your romance to the high seas. You will notice that there are quite a few options when choosing this cruise for just about any couple and most budgets. Although this is not guaranteed, you may even get a glimpse of a humpback whale making an appearance in the water (December through April is whale season.)
Watch the Sun Go Down at Sweetheart Rock
Puupehe, also known as Sweetheart Rock is a beautiful spot to take your partner. Take a short hike just past Four Seasons Lanai Resort and you will arrive at a cliff-side area that overlooks Sweetheart Rock. This location provides a gorgeous view of sunsets and – if you’re lucky – an occasional show of some wild dolphins.
There’s Nothing Like Watching the Sun Go Down at a Royal Setting
Witness firsthand the magical Molokai sunset in an unforgettable place worth of royalty. During the late 1860s, King Kamehameha V planted 1,000 coconut trees on his 10 acres of land, which is now called Kapuaiwa coconut grove in honor of his army of 1,000 members. To this day, there are still hundreds of these trees that still exist. Although you have to be aware of falling coconuts, this is such a beautiful place to visit and watch the sunset.
