Maui, the Big Island, and Oahu

Real Honeymoon |

Married in October, 2010, Naomi and Jamie, from Montreal, were smart in wanting to avoid the cold for their honeymoon.  So they up and left for much warmer waters in Hawai’i in December.  With the spirit of adventure in them, they wanted to make sure they were surrounded by nature and have plenty of access for hiking.  So for their honeymoon, they did an island hop and visited Maui, Big Island, and Oahu.

Some of their goals for their honeymoon were to have a good combination of sightseeing and relaxing so they were able to hike, see the North Shore villages, visit the rainforest, snorkel and more.
Akaka Falls
Hotel Hana Coastline
The three factors that were most important for them for their honeymoon were that it had to be fun, relaxing and breathtaking.
