First time in Hawaii for one of us - trip advice please

Jump to last reply


We have to plan a quick trip to Hawaii as we have been invited to a destination wedding on Kauai (near Hanalei) in mid March. I was in Kauai ages ago when there was a Club Med in Hanalei and never went to any of the other islands. My husband has never been to Hawaii. I was there over Xmas at the time and it did rain -- but 10 minutes away from Hanalei int was nice.

We plan to start in Honolulu for 3 days then we have 12 days left. The last 3 will be in Kauai.

Questions: 1) Should we do 4 nights (5 days) or three nights ( 4 days) in Kauai?

2) The rest of the time would be split between Maui and the Big Island with a preference to spend more time on the Big Island.

We do not like to sit on the beach or by a pool too long. We prefer adventure travel and visiting historical or natural places as well as sailing.

Would 2 or 3 days in Maui be enough?

What would a good breakdown of time among the islands be?

We have some timeshares which we need to book soon and would like to stay at little inns or B&Bs the other times. Any suggestions.
