First time Hawaii from 19th nov to 4th dec... Kauai n big island...Help!

Jump to last reply

Hey guys... I n my husband are going to Hawaii for my B'day this year. We'll be there for around 14 days. We are adventurous and love hiking. We've short listed two islands Kauai And big island. We love natural beauty n hate shopping or visiting cities! We would also like to do the following activities on each island.

Big island:
-diving/snorkeling at manta rays or place of refuge at Kona
-stargazing at Mauna Kea
-volcano boat tour
-zip line in north Kohala
-horse riding in Waipio valley
-akaka falls
-punalu black sand beach

Kauai :
-Napali coast
-waimea canyon
-hiking at kalalau trail
-opaekaa waterfalls
-kayaking at wailua river
-hanalei beach
-poipu beach or tunnel beach

I really need help with in which order we should do these activities? Also some budget lodging ideas on each island? Can we include Maui too on our list or it'll be too much to cover in this timeframe? Thanks in advance for helping us out :)
