Quick Romantic Getaways

by Sherri Eisenberg


Romance factor: Compared with Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island, Kauai is raw and natural. Wild chickens wander at will (beware the rooster's early wake-up call), and the closest thing to a highway is a two-lane road that circumnavigates most of the island. Here you'll find plenty of secret waterfalls to splash around in and quiet, empty beaches that you'll share only with the coconut palms. We won't tell you what to do with all that privacy.

Love Nest: Located on the sunniest side of the island, the Outrigger Kiahuna nods to Hawaii's plantation past with cozy bungalows spread across 35 oceanfront acres of swaying palms and orchid gardens. An offshore reef makes for safe swimming off the beach and for serious surfing further out. But in-room kitchens make it just as tempting to hole up with your certain someone.

Fuel for the fire: You're past the honeymoon phase of courting over five-course meals. True love now is toasting to your vacation with pineapple shave ices or tucking into sausages hugged by Hawaiian buns toasted on hot spikes at Puka Dog. Top the dogs with some lilikoi (passion fruit) or guava relish and grab a spot on the sand to watch the sun set.
