Honeymoon trip - Driving around Kauai or Maui

Jump to last reply

My fiance are and I are planning to visit *either* Kauai or Maui in July and spend several days there as part of our honeymoon.

We will have a rental car and regardless of which island we end up on, we want to do drive around and take day trips. We are especially interested in hiking, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and just loafing on the beach.

We also want to have one place where we are staying and use that as a base of operations. Right now we have a short list of resorts - the Koa Kea Hotel on Kauai, and the Hotel Wailea on Maui.

How easy is it to drive around the islands? For example, if we are in Wailea on Maui, can we drive to other parts of the island within a day? Or if we are in Koloa on Kauai, can we get to other parts of Kauai?

As you can probably tell, I'm a mainlander and this is our first trip to Hawaii! Thanks!
