We are flying in and out of Oahu. May 21, returning June 4. So 14 nights. It seems like a lot of time, but there is so much to do and see. I am currently thinking of staying 3 nights in Waikiki because we have to do Pearl Harbor, and the first night will be a blur.
I then anticipated flying to the Big Island and dividing the stay between the east and west sides. But people keep telling me i have to see Maui, it is so beautiful. I hate the idea of packing and unpacking so much.
Is there any sense in doing a daytrip to Maui from the Big island?? Or should I plan to stay in Maui for 2 or 3 days so that we could do the road to Hana (which seems like the big thing to do) and spend a day at a white sand beach.
We want to be able to have some adventures, but not run ourselves ragged with "must see, must do". On the other hand, my guess is this is going to be our only trip to Hawaii, so I should make the most of it. Sorry for rambling, but as you could read, I need advice from people who have been there! Thanks in advance.
