The Perfect Way to Spend a Romantic Night in Waikiki

Beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets, and world-class dining. Hawaii is one of the top destinations for couples to travel to for a truly romantic experience. Whether you’re visiting for your honeymoon, a couple’s getaway, or just a quick staycation to Waikiki, we created the perfect evening itinerary that will make you fall in love all over again.

5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Beachfront Cocktails + Incredible Sunsets

There are a number of bars where you can snag front row seats to unparalleled views of Waikiki’s famous sunset. Here are some of our top picks:

  • Rum Fire (What We Recommend: RumFire’s Scorched Strawberry)
  • Beach Bar (What We Recommend: The Drinks for Two Options – Cabana Limeade or Sunset on the Horizon)
  • Mai Tai Bar (What We Recommend: Royal Mai Tai)

In February, the sun sets between 6 – 6:30 p.m. so be sure you grab some seats at least 30 minutes beforehand as this is the busiest time at the bars! More details on the exact timing of sunsets are available here.

If you don’t mind going across the street from the beach but are looking for some great happy hour deals, the Splash Bar at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani offers happy hour till 6 p.m. with uniquely Hawaiian cocktails for just $8.

And, if you’re staying in Waikiki on a Friday, don’t miss the magical fireworks show put on by Hilton Hawaiian Village at 7:45 p.m.

7:30 – 9:00 p.m. Romantic Dinner

Depending on what you are craving, Waikiki offers some of the best cuisine from around the world. Here are our top picks:

Seafood: Azure Waikiki
