Kailua Village – Big Island Budget-Friendly Option
Kailua Village Resort is located in the historic town of Kailua-Kona on the western part of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is a 7-story condominium building that was built in 1972. The resort offers 1 and 2-bedroom vacation condo units ranging in size from 639 to 1278 square feet.
The Kailua Village condo rentals are very popular because they are close to some of the town’s important places from history. Additionally, just across the street, you can discover the stunning crystal blue ocean. If you select a unit on or above the third floor, you can step out onto your lanai and witness the horizon and glistening waters.
Alternatively, for more convenient access to outdoor activities, you may want to consider a Kailua Village condo unit on the ground floor.
Romantic Things to Do for Couples on the Big Island
Snorkel with Manta Rays
Thrill yourself and your partner with a must-do experience – snorkel with majestic manta rays at night in their natural habitat. After an afternoon boat ride along the Kona coast, you’ll jump into the water with a snorkel guide and float while the manta rays glide, somersault, and perform a graceful nighttime ballet.
Visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Explore Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and a must-visit for honeymooners visiting the Big Island. Take a 20 min walk through a tree fern forest in the Thurston Lava Tube trail or descend 400 ft into a crater in the Kilauea Iki trail.
There are plenty of other trails to explore from short walks to two- and three-day treks – but don’t forget your sunscreen, warm and waterproof attire, and plenty of water!
Experience Mauna Kea Stargazing
For a romantic stargazing experience, visit Mauna Kea. This inactive volcano is situated over 13,000 feet above sea level and is known to be one of the best spots globally for stargazing. The clear atmosphere and absence of light pollution allow for excellent views of stars and galaxies. Several couples come here to enjoy the night sky together.
Explore the Big Island’s Picturesque Waterfalls
Visit some of the Big Island’s incredible waterfalls, such as Akaka Falls with its 134-meter cascade and Kahuna Falls. Rainbow Falls near downtown Hilo provides a romantic spot for picnics amidst tropical greenery, while adventurers can take on the Waipio Valley hike to witness the awe-inspiring 440-meter Hi’ilawe Falls.
Relax with Oceanside Spa Treatment
Experience the ultimate relaxation getaway with a romantic outdoor spa treatment on Hawaii’s Big Island. Indulge in a unique massage and exfoliation, made even more special with local ingredients and fragrances, and finish your session with a bottle of bubbly to increase the romance factor.
Enjoy a Romantic Sunset Dinner Cruise
For a complete Hawaii trip, a couple can enjoy a cruise on a catamaran to witness the famous Kona sunset together. During the journey, you will be able to take pictures of the stunning Kona coastline and even spot dolphins racing alongside the boat.
As the sun sets into the Pacific Ocean, you can share a special moment with your partner and sip on a cocktail. This experience is the perfect way to start an evening in paradise.
