We are trying to research for our honeymoon. We have two weeks in May and would like to visit two islands. So far, we have decided that the Big Island is one of them.
Which other island do you recommend? We are interested in hiking, whale watching, amazing cuisine, kayaking, explore caves....possibly an attempt at surfing. We have been reading up on Kauai and Oahu which both seem amazing, but we are just not sure. We would like to stay in a section that is not terribly touristy or commercialized but still has a good amount of local entertainment.
Also, which part of the Big Island should we stay on? I've read that Hilo generally has more rain. Kona is sunnier but Hilo has the better beaches. We are looking for a resort-style hotel, preferably with daily breakfast included.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.Edited: 30 November 2012, 02:54
