Hoping for some expert input into my planned itinerary. Here are the basics:
*1st week: 2 friends, 1 surfer, 1 who will just relax / read
*2nd week: 6-10 friends (1 surfer, rest for relaxing, going out)
Week 1 near Kona - by Kahaluu. Perhaps look for a condo at the racquet club. We'd like accommodations with a pool. I think I can surf at Kahaluu in September as there's the south swell. Is there enough to do in the area for a week? I imagine we will need to rent a car? I know there are some bigger resorts as well but if I want to be near the beach to surf, I think as close to Kahaluu as possible, right?
Fly over to Oahu and spend Week 2 on the North Shore. Although waves aren't ideal in Sept., but the end of the month they could be ok. But, since it's a larger group, we also want to be near places to go out / have fun. Does Haleiwa make sense for this? We were thinking of renting a condo - any specific area to consider? We are hoping not to have to have a car.
Ideas and input welcome! Thank you.
