Oahu & Maui in October - away from the crowds?

Jump to last reply

Hi - We're attending a meeting in Wailea in October then would like to spend about 6 days exploring the quiet areas in Maui. Hiking, rain forest areas, waterfalls, etc. would be great, as would nice quiet beaches. (we do have a few nights booked in Hana and I hope we can get there in a rental car).

Then we plan to spend 5-6 days in Oahu and I have no idea where to go or what to do. Husband would like to see Pearl Harbor, then again, we'd like to get away from the city atmosphere and would enjoy quiet areas with possible walks/hikes, mountains, botanical gardens, nice beaches and not too many people.

Small cottages would be our preference rather than large hotels and we'll rent a jeep/4x4 for both islands, and of course good food is always appreciated.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
