Renew Your Vows at Hawaiian Villas
It seems like only yesterday you exchanged vows with your loved one - why not remind each other of your devotion in a romantic and tropical setting like Hawaii? Whether you want to camp out on the beach or indulge in luxury Hawaiian villas, the warm sea breezes and laid-back lifestyles of these islands offer the perfect atmosphere to say "I do" all over again.
If you're going for movie-like drama during your renewal ceremony and are staying on Oahu, a couple of key spots are worth the small hike. The beachside cliff known to locals as China Walls is a popular hangout spot for barbecuers and daredevils who enjoy flipping off the rock face into deep blue ocean, and during the sunset, the black lava rock glows with a deep orange hue. At high tide, the waves break directly on the cliffs, causing a dramatic whitewash spray - a perfect time to steal a smooch for a spectacular photograph and unforgettable moment.
You might want to leave your Sunday best at luxury rentals before heading to the Makapu'u Lighthouse trail, which starts out as a beginner-level hike, but to get to the tide pools below, requires sneakers and a good eye for small trail markers. After switchbacking for half an hour, you'll reach the tide pools, which are crystal clear and teeming with unique marine life. Like China Walls, high tide brings incredible whitewash spray, so don't forget to pack your swimsuit and towel.
