4. Pu'u O Kila Lookout - Kauai

Located in Waimea Canyon State Park, this scenic lookout offers sweeping views of the lush valleys and rugged cliffs of the Napali Coast. Propose at sunset, with the vibrant colors of the sky reflecting off the canyon walls, or during a scenic drive along the canyon rim.

This beautiful beach boasts soft golden sand, crystal-clear waters, and views of the neighboring islands of Kaho'olawe and Molokini Crater. Propose at sunset, with the sky aglow in hues of orange and pink, or during a moonlit stroll along the shoreline. Note: West Maui is gradually reopening to visitors following the fires.

Proposing at Waialea Bay, also known as Beach 69, could create a memorable and romantic experience amidst the stunning natural beauty of the Big Island's coastline.

7. Lanikai Beach - Oahu

This picturesque beach on the windward coast of Oahu boasts powdery white sand, swaying palm trees, and calm turquoise waters. Propose during a sunrise kayak tour to the nearby Mokulua Islands, a romantic beachfront picnic, or a leisurely stroll along the shoreline.


8. Papakōlea Beach - Big Island

This unique beach features green sand, created by the presence of olivine crystals in the sand. Propose against the backdrop of the sparkling green shoreline and the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean.
