Days of wine, orchid petals, and blissful beaches: T+L readers voted on their dreamiest island escapes.

14 of 21

This Hawaiian island attracts lovers who aren’t the kind to merely lounge by the pool: activities abound, whether that means surfing at Poipu Beach, hiking the Na Pali coast’s Kalalau Trail, or splashing in Wailua Falls. But the island also has a sentimental side. The stained-glass-accented B&B Kilauea Lodge, next to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, was created out of a former YMCA by two smitten honeymooners. Or, try the boutique-style, 121-room Koa Kea Resort; it offers private lanais, easy access to the beach, and the chance to commune with monk seals, known to come up on shore.
