<p><strong>Why Maui:</strong> You&rsquo;ll find waterfalls, salt-and-pepper sand beaches and incredible views as you follow the twisting turning <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/hawaii/maui/review-429470.html">Road to Hana</a>. The <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/hawaii/maui/hotels-nam_price:5.html">luxury resorts in Wailea or Ka&rsquo;anapali</a> will provide lots of excellent dining and spa treatment options. And for those who want to start their day off early, there&rsquo;s the drive up to <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/hawaii/maui/review-96772.html">Haleakala</a> to see the sun rise&mdash;or for couples who prefer to sleep in there&rsquo;s the arguably even more spectacular sunset from the summit. <em> Timing Tip: </em>Spend 4 nights.</p> <p><strong>Why Kauai:</strong> The north shore communities of Hanalei and Princeville provide the opportunity to get away from crowds and indulge in some spectacular beaches, hiking, and helicopter rides.
