Get ready, get married, stop by for a refreshing shave ice, adventure around the island return to an intimate, privately prepared dinner or a simple Hawaiian meal in a bonfire. The possibilities are endless!
Based on our knowledge of the Big Islands terrain, weather patterns, hiking, and driving trails, we will recommend the best location for you, so your elopement is an experience that is uniquely yours! One location selection factor to consider is if you’d like to adventure off road in a 4 wheel drive vehicle and have a hike, or take a short stroll from the car to your location.
Whether that destination is a black sand beach, cliffside, waterfall, rainforest, sunset cruise, or a combination of these, we are there to assist you along the way. Click below to learn about specific locations.
Hawaii is a beautiful location for weddings year round, but there are a few considerations when selecting your date.
+The ‘winter season’ in Hawaii is December through March, and the west side of the island remains dry during this time.
+If you are considering a rain forest location, be prepared for a chance of rain year round on the tropical side of the island, and more so during winter.
+The Big Island and all of Hawaii does see an increase in travel during holidays and summer vacation. If your elopement ceremony is during this time we will recommend a beach that is not crowded for a more private ceremony.
+Beaches are quietest on weekdays.
+Some locations require special permits which can require up to 45 days to acquire, so be sure to reach out to Elope Big Island early to ensure the option to utilize your desired location.
