It doesn't get more romantic than sunsets on the beach after a day of hiking and snorkeling—or does it? We've put together a local's guide to the most romantic things to do in Waikiki. Wake up in paradise with beautiful views of Diamond Head before setting out to explore the island with that special someone.

Our ocean view guest rooms feature private lanais so you'll barely have to roll out of bed to experience sunrise with your sweetie.
