We are going with another couple. Their number one request is lots of snorkling.
They would also apprieciate a hotel with a nice beach bar.
We bascially want a place like Dukes in Waikiki to drink and dine in, and a place like Hanauma Bay to snorkle in. We will have a car and look forward to exploring island, but will not really want a 4 hour drive to snorkle. We are only novices so prefer shore snorkling, but we have all done off boat snorkling ( in Caribbean) .
We have heard of Black Rock, is this a good snorkle place. Our trip is later in April, so hopefully winter waves will not be a huge issue.
A hotel near good snorkling would be ideal. We don't want a condo,, my friend and I like being taken out to dinner every night, we have 5 kids between us ( staying at home) and we are sick of housework, so a hotel seems like best fit.
Any suggestions. Will consider other islands, but since we haven't been to Maui we thought it sounded like a good fit. Kaui was a bit too quiet for us, although it is the most amazingly beautiful place !
