Although we strive to provide the most current information, attractions and activities mentioned may close or be suspended at any time. We recommend checking City and County of Honolulu or State of Hawai‘i mandates and individual websites for operating hours, updates, and social distancing measures before visiting.
Cacao Farm Tour and Chocolate Tasting
Celebrate Valentine’s Day a day early at 21 Degrees Estate Cacao Farm. The family-operated boutique cacao farm in Kahalu’u is hosting a guided chocolate tour on February 13 beginning at 10:30 a.m. The tour includes time with their adorable farm animals, sampling of seasonal fresh fruit, and the story of the estate’s vision for sustainable agriculture. Afterwards, partake in a chocolate tasting experience and sample chocolates grown on “the most charming cacao farm in America” as well as other Hawai’i-grown and made samples that highlight the distinctive flavors of craft chocolate.
Enjoy a Romantic Dinner in the “Heart of Waikiki”
A Valentine’s Day dinner doesn’t have to be held at the nearest Michelin-starred restaurant. Make your meal all the more meaningful and find a spot that reflects you and your partner’s personality. Dubbed the “heart of Waikiki”, Kalakaua Avenue is home to some of the most illustrious eateries in all of O’ahu. Book a table for two high above the avenue at Tiki’s Grill & Bar within Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel. The Pacific-Rim cuisine restaurant is hosting a special Valentine’s Day four-course meal created by Executive Chef Ronnie Nasuti which includes delectable plates like Heart-Beet & Boursin Cheese Salad, Kahuku Corn Pudding with poached lobster, Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops, and Warm Divine Chocolate Fudge Cake. Your multi-course meal is further enhanced by a Pomegranate Mimosa and a long-stemmed rose gift. Book your dinner reservation ahead.
Defy the holiday’s typical stereotypes and opt for something active instead. Hop on a high speed catamaran for a sunset dinner sail, of which the island offers many. Enjoy tropical cocktails, an island-style dinner buffet, and spectacular views of Honolulu, Waikiki, and Diamond Head from the water as you watch the sun sink into the Pacific. Other options for the thrill-seeking couple include a snorkel or surf day at Waikiki Beach, ridgeline hike, skydiving, jet ski rentals, or zip lining through the rainforest. For more activities guaranteed to get those endorphins flowing, visit Oʻahu Adventures for the Thrill-Seeking Traveler.
Bring Your Love of Movies to Life

Romantic comedies like 50 First Dates and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and action flicks like Hunger Games, Jurassic Park, and Pirates of the Caribbean, have filmed on the island - and the locations are all accessible!
