Hi Ally, thanks for the pics, reminds me of my Childhood & High School years. I always loved Corona Del Mar since it's harder to access the beach and is almost always empty. (back before the Golf Course & Homes on the hills above) They also have more tidal pools to explore.

Juju... you went to Hanama Bay? I was there last year too. It was an amazing experience snorkeling in the clear waters there and seeing the wierd sea life! Hawaii is one of my favorite vacation spots! Happy 5 year Anniversary!
I think its a better call for a honeymoon than Hawaii. The hotels we stayed at were different from what you usually see in Hawaii. No real large hotel buildings to speak of, just a bunch of small individual bungalows. Whether they are garden bungalows set back from the beach, or beach bungalows right on the beach, or what we stayed in, over water bungalows which are amazing. Sort of like having your own little home and not dealing with people in elevators or hallways.
Another nice thing about Tahiti, is that your inside a barrier reef. So its this large nice area of water thats very peaceful. My wife and I have been to Hawaii a bunch of times, but never seen her in the water as much as this trip.
My recommendation would be to hold off to go there until you had that special occasion. Otherwise there is always Hawaii which is incredible and a easy flight and trip.
