A legendary destination for newlyweds, Maui is a natural match for couples wishing to elope and honeymoon in a single, luxurious trip. Known for its relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking beauty, the island is mercifully short on tourist attractions, leaving days and nights free for fine dining, unwinding, and -- most importantly -- romance. Maui elopement locations range from public beaches and national parks to private estates and five-star resorts, making this island ideal for any style nuptials you desire.

HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK

Located on Maui’s East Side, Haleakala National Park blissfully encompasses volcanic landscapes and rustic shrublands, but it’s the bamboo rainforest complete with idyllic waterfalls (and the Pools of ‘Ohe’o) just steps from the beach that lends itself beautifully for the ceremony portion of an elopement. (Photo: Hawaii Tourism Authority/Ron Dahlquist)
