Please help my sister/I decide on which of the 2 islands to visit for our birthday trip in June 2013 -either the south shore of Kauai (probably Poipu) or Big Island (Kona). We will be leaving the hubbies/kids at home for 7 days and want to get away for pure R&R! We are interested in/plan to do the following:
Relaxation (prefer not overly crowded), some shopping would be nice (not high end either, local is fine), eating (love exploring new cuisine -want variety and local fare, not too expensive either), reading, walking along the beach, watching the sunset with a nice drink in hand.
We are not too fond of hiking nor major water sports although I might be OK going snorkeling and we may possibly try kayaking or canoeing. No heavy duty sports. Not interested in volcanos.
We are two girls - sisters who just want to get away for a really nice & very relaxing Hawaiian birthday vacation.
Thanks in advance!
