Hawaii Help Please!!!

Hawaii Help Please!!!

Hi! My boyfriend and I are young college students who have worked super hard to save for a trip to Hawaii - trying to plan it though has been really overwhelming as there are so many options!

I was wondering if I could get some help on which island to choose. We're not looking to stay at a resort (probably more like an airbnb situation) or anything super fancy.

The top three things we are looking to do are:

1) Hike to a waterfall

2) see sea turtles!

3) a bit of snorkeling or kayaking

We would also prefer (as everyone else) as close to a beach as possible.

Any suggestions on what island to stay at? What hikes to do?

Help would be truly appreciated :)

We've worked so hard and saved our pennies for so long, I want to make sure we can get to as many as things on our dream list as we can.

Thank you in advance!

You can do everything on your list except kayaking (river) is only on Kaua`i. We need more info from you. When are you traveling? What's your budget? Will you be able to rent a car? (This is important. You need one anywhere other than the city of Honolulu.)

Welcome to Trip Advisor!

On the right hand side of this page, very top, in blue letters, you will see Top Questions. The very first one is a summary of the islands. Have a read through that and see what you think. Another option is to get to your public library and get some travel books about Hawaii. Fodor's, Frommer's, and Lonely Planet are some examples.

And just start reading. See which one you like (they are all wonderful, and all so different).

Answer pzp's questions, and also, how many nights/days will you be able to spend on this holiday?
