My husband and I are planning our trip to Hawaii for June/July (I know, a bit last minute).
Our itinerary looks like this so far:
- 5 nights in Maui (not sure where yet, but somewhere relaxing with nice beaches)
- 6 nights in Kauai (again, not sure where, but would like to see some of the beautiful cliffs and do some hiking and snorkeling in the north and maybe a couple of days of hiking/beach in the south)
- 6 nights on the BI (2 days in Volcanoes NP for hiking and 4 days in Kona for snorkeling and relaxation before going home)
We are looking to do some camping on Kauai (~4 nights) and the Big Island (~2 nights in the VNP or thereabout) to save a bit of $$.
For Kauai, we would like to be close to a beach (though not necessarily on the beach) where it's safe to swim and has good snorkeling. Would north or south be better for this? Can anyone recommend a safe campground that has showers/toilets?
On the BI, I'm not sure if it's possible to still get permits to camp in the NP this close to the date, so any other recommendations would be helpful.
Alternatively, if anyone can recommend affordable accommodations in these areas, that would be great too. I tried looking on vrbo, but so much stuff comes up that it's really hard to sort through it (and I can't figure out how to limit by price and availability), so I gave up on that.
any help would be much appreciated!
thanks in advance!
