Kauai 1st time - first few questions!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to Kauai to celebrate a big anniversary (even though that big anniversary was 3 years ago)! !-) We are planning on going for two weeks. I am in the very preliminary stages of planning.

We want to spend a few days on Oahu before Kauai. I've been to Oahu, he's never been. He would like to see the major sights - Waikiki and Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, etc. I wouldn't mind going back for a few days as it's been 30 years since I went there.

I'm thinking 3 days would be enough - a day to chill on Waikiki after a long day of traveling and a day or two for touring around town including Pearl Harbor.

Question #1 - if we will be spending the majority of our time on Kauai, will we (well, my husband really) be missing anything by NOT touring the entire island of Oahu including the north shore? I remember it rather vividly - it was beautiful - but I'm thinking we should just check out the sights around Honolulu before moving on. From what I'm reading, it seems nothing compares to the beauty of the north shore of Kauai.
