From booking the best place to stay in West Maui to getting your home ready for your Hawaii vacation, you might have glazed over making Valentine’s Day plans during your time here in paradise. If you are looking for romantic things to do on Maui, we put together a list of some last-minute ways to celebrate this annual day of love!
Enjoy A Picnic Basket Lunch
Since your Hawaii vacation includes white sandy beaches and dramatic tropical landscapes, why not set up a romantic picnic with the island as the background. Simply pack your favorite food and drinks, choose a cozy spot on a Maui beach or park, and layout your spread to enjoy amongst the lush scenery. You could even plan to catch a glimpse of whales playing in the distance as the sun dips below the horizon!
Make Dinner At Your Home Away From Home
Want to enjoy a delicious meal but hoping to avoid the dinner crowds? With a fully equipped kitchen as part of the amenities, your West Maui vacation rental can easily transform into a beachfront restaurant! Simply gather ingredients from a local farmer’s market or grocery store and spend a fun evening cooking together. You could even take your dinner out onto the private lanai and enjoy each other’s company while listening to waves gently kiss the shoreline. Not only is this a budget-friendly way to spend the holiday but it offers the opportunity to create new traditions!
Go Out For Dessert
Another great way to avoid the Valentine’s Day dinner crowds and potentially continuing the celebrations is to venture from your home away from home for a sweet treat! Whether it is ice cream, donuts, or shave ice, there are so many places where you can grab dessert with your sweetie.
Have A Movie Night
With most of our oceanfront vacation homes outfitted with flat-screen TVs, why not pick up a box of popcorn and snuggle up for an at “home” movie night! Once the sun goes down for the day, the sound of coconut palms swaying in the cool ocean breeze is a unique backdrop for watching your film of choice.
Whether you settle on one or do them all, the possibilities for a romantic Valentine’s Day in Hawaii is almost endless! You don’t need to specially book an island activity or fancy dinner reservation to express just how much you care for your significant other. If anything, we hope that you spend this day creating memories that will truly last a lifetime!
