Earlier this summer, I went to Oahu for the first time. I jokingly referred to this as my “babymoon” even though I was traveling sans husband. Oahu is the perfect babymoon destination if you are looking for a relaxing, tropical getaway. Consider going if you want a range of things to do within close reach – whether it’s beaches, shopping, food, or hiking, and you’re not in the mood for “roughing it” and don’t mind feeling like a tourist. If you’re considering having your babymoon in Oahu, here are some activities that belong on your bucket list.
1. Visit the North Shore.
It took us an hour – maybe less – to drive from our apartment in Waikiki all the way up to Haleiwa Town in the North Shore. We were stunned by how such a short trip could bring us somewhere so far removed from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
The small beach we visited was pristine with its white sand and aquamarine waters, yet there were hardly any other people there. As I swam, I’m pretty sure my baby nugget was rocked to sleep by the motion of the waves.
