Which Hawaiian Island with kids

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of going to Hawaii this August. for seven days. We have been to Oahu, Maui (twice) and the Big Island. I love each island. We are traveling with are tow kids, ages 7 and 4. Both have been to Hawaii before but when they were much younger.

We are considering Kauai and specifically the Hyatt. While I have always wanted to go to Kauai, I confess that I am concerned it may be a little too slow, especially for seven days. Any advice would be great.

Alternatively, we are considering Oahu because of the great diversity of activity for kids. Waikiki is great for kids and I hear that have movies on the beach, something they did not have in 2002 when we last visited. I also missed the Polynesian Culture Center the last time around.

A second alternative is the Big Island, my personal favorite though not my wife's. We stayed at the Hapuna Prince and I had a blast. We are considering the Hilton it we return because of all the kids activities.

Generally, we like all the usual stuff. A nice hotel, great pool, hiking, snorkling and eating at local joints.

Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks a million.
