The ultimate Hawaii Honeymoon Packing List
If you’re trying to figure out what to pack for a Hawaii honeymoon, I’m here to help! As a Hawaii Travel Agent who specializes in honeymoons, I know a thing or two about packing for a Hawaii honeymoon. I’ve created the Ultimate Hawaii Honeymoon Packing List to help you gather everything you need for a honeymoon in Hawaii. If you’re feeling overwhelmed planning your honeymoon, feel free to contact me.
The first stop for your Hawaii Honeymoon Packing List: Luggage.
As a Hawaii Travel Agent, I’m frequently asked about the best luggage for traveling. Samsonite has sturdy hard-side luggage that will be able to withstand rough handling for your checked bags. For carry-on luggage, I like eBags. I also recommend using eBags packing cubes to make the most of your packing space.
In your carry-on:
- Boarding Passes, Drivers License, Passports, and other essential documents. For my clients, I create an itinerary with all pertinent information, and I recommend keeping this on your phone and printed in your carry-on.
- Prescription Medicine (in its original bottle.)
- Ginger pills for nausea.
- A good, reusable water bottle like the Hydroflask.
- Reusable cutlery and a straw.
- Toothbrush and Toothpaste.
- Moisturizer for your skin.
- A Kindle or books for reading. I use the Kindle Paperwhite and love it. You can get a 30-day free trial of Kindle Unlimited here.
- A light jacket, travel blanket, or something multifunctional like a SandCloud towel.
- Headphones. I use Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless and love them.
- Travel Pillow.
- Reef-safe Sunscreen. You can find all about reef-safe sunscreen and why it’s essential in this post.
- A change of clothes, just in case!
- Camera (you can see what I recommend for travel here.)
- Cash, for tips.
In your checked bag (or carry-on if you’re a light packing like me:)
- 2-3 pairs of shoes. I recommend a pair of casual, comfortable sandals for dinner, luau, etc. One pair of hiking boots or Nike-type shoes, and one pair of sandals or flip flops. I, personally, skip the hiking boots/gym shoes and bring my Teva Sandals.
- Two swimsuits, one to wear and one to dry.
- Coverup to wear over swimsuit. Again, Hawaii is very casual, and you can wear this out and about.
- Extra memory cards, batteries, etc. for the camera.
- 4-8 outfits, depending on whether you want to do laundry during your trip. In Hawaii, most tourists wear sundresses, tank tops, t-shirts, shorts, bathing suit coverups, Aloha shirts.
- Insect repellent if you plan to go hiking.
- Aloe for after sun care.
- Sun hat.
- Water shoes.
- A small, waterproof speaker. Great for the beach!
- An extra tote for bringing souvenirs home.
- Travel candle, scented massage oils, etc.
