Plan a Perfect Proposal in Hana, Hawaii

Cool ocean breeze, crashing waves, tropical landscapes…You pull out a ring and you’re on your way to happily ever after.  If you’re one of those suave ultra romantic types, a proposal in Maui will be a one of a kind event that your partner will remember forever…after all, they do call it Heavenly Hana for a reason.

If you’re looking to arrange the ultimate proposal, here are 7 tips for planning an evening that she’ll never forget.

1) Plan ahead: While women love surprises and spontaneity, there’s nothing more romantic than a well planned proposal.  There are a number of breathtaking spots on the Road to Hana that will make an absolutely stunning backdrop.  The first thing you’ll need to determine what type of background paints the perfect proposal picture: Beautiful beaches, flowing waterfalls or lush tropics all provide different feels, depending on the proposal you’re going for.

2) Honokalani Black Sand Beach is located in the Wainapanapa State Park and is a unique location for a beach proposal.  For the adventurous couple, spend the day exploring caverns, hiking trails and more before the big moment.

3)While the above beach is beautiful, it also tends to be a bit touristy at times.  If you’re looking for a more private proposal, about a mile past “downtown” Hana on the S. Hana Hwy. and left onto Haneo’o Rd is Hamoa beach—a perfect place to get down on one knee amidst the crashing waves.

4)Speak from the heart.

5)Don’t forget a camera!  Doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but you’ll both want to remember this moment.  Even if it’s one of those extended arm self shots…you’ll be glad you have it.

6) If you’re looking to propose on the high seas, there are several different charter trips in Hana available to choose from.  Just remember not to be standing too close to the edge when you propose.  Last time we checked, diamonds don’t float….

7) End the night with an overnight stay at the breathtaking Travaasa Hana.  With the quaint sea ranch cottages, attention to detail, and delicious dining options, it’s the perfect way to wrap up an amazing day.  You’ll also be happy to not have to drive The Road to Hana after the proposal, as the trip can take up to four hours!

 

Congratulations!  And here’s to lifelong happiness!
