Honeymoon to Kauai and Maui from the East Coast

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are currently planning our honeymoon to Kauai and Maui in late October. We are planning to stay at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai and the Sheraton Kaanapali in Maui. We are pretty adventurous and like to explore but would also like to spend some time relaxing. Some things we'd like to do on each island include: Kauai (see the Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon) and Maui (Road to Hana, Old Lahaina Luau, Bike down Haleakala at sunrise) and of course explore and snorkel on both islands. We still aren't sure about a helicopter ride in Kauai (versus a boat tour of the Napali Coast) and a trip to Molokini for snorkeling.

Our current dilema has to do with traveling. We are coming from the east coast, so we know we will lose a significant amount of time in transit. We know that we want to have at least 5 full days and full nights on each island to make the trip relaxing and our time worthwhile. Initially, we were thinking about stopping in San Francisco/Napa Valley on our way home. So it would have been: fly directly into Kauai, fly from Maui to San Francisco, fly from San Francisco home. This would allow us two full days in San Francisco/Napa Valley to break up our trip home. Our travel agent suggested stopping on the way to Hawaii, or not at all as it changes our flights from round-trip to multi-destination ($$) and because she felt we wouldn't want to go there after leaving Hawaii. Another option is to spend an extra day in Maui and then come back a day early to recover from all the jet lag.

I'd love to know if anyone has done Hawaii from the east coast with a stopover (in either direction) in San Francisco and if anyone had any particular recommendations on what to do. Also, I'd love to know if anyone has had experience with the hotels and activities we are considering. Thank you!
