Lead in me in the right direction for our first Hawaii trip

Jump to last reply

Hello! I’m starting to research my family’s first trip to Hawaii and I’m finding it a bit overwhelming and would appreciate any advice. We’ll be traveling June 2018 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We’re a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 10 and 13. We travel yearly to St. John so we love a beautiful beach vacation. We always rent a villa or condo on vrbo and definitely prefer that to staying in hotels. It’s imporant to me that we’re in a location with fairly safe, swimmable beaches. I prefer a location without miles of high rise hotels along the beach...that’s one thing we so love about St.John. Excursions we’d love to do include snorkeling, hiking through rain forests, seeing waterfalls, whale watching trip, maybe checking out a volcano. We’d like to take hiking or biking trips but nothing too physically demanding...we’re pretty fit but we’re traveling with kids and momma has arthritic knees! Lol Not looking for injuries on vacation! We do like to go out for dinners as a family, otherwise not too concerned about nightlife. I don’t care if it’s cheesy, I totally want to do a luau! We’ll have somewhere between 10 days to 2 weeks, depending on what kind of rates we find on accommodations and airfare from the east coast. Suggestions on what islands would be best for us, what locations on the islands, accommodations to check out, places that are not to be missed would be so appreciated!
