Molokai and Lanai or Kauai

Jump to last reply

In the past, we have visited Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island, and we enjoyed all three even though I think they are very different in many ways. We are beginning to plan our next trip to the islands and trying to decide where to go. This trip will be just my wife and I, and we will be looking for a low keyed trip. In the past, our favorite places have been areas like that around Hilo and the North Shore of Oahu, but we have also enjoyed our share of white sand beaches in Kohala and Wailea. If we went to Molokai and Lanai, I think we would probably look for some beach house on Molokai for three or four days and pair that with two or three days at the FS on Lanai. If we went to Kauai, I think we would probably spend five days at the SR. Either trip would probably be paired with a day or two in HNL - I would really like to visit the Bishop Museum.

On our most recent trip to the Big Island, we hiked in VNP, ziplined, did the kayak to Capt Cook, visited the water falls, and built our share of sand castles at Hapuna. All were fun. We were very unimpressed with Kailua, but really liked Hilo.

Given those general ideas, what would you do and why? Very subjective I know, and I know that either decision is probably a good one, but I am just trying to decide which way to jump. Thanks!
