My fiancé and I are planning on a Hawaii honeymoon beginning in Kauai (6 days) and ending in Maui (6 days) during mid-September 2014. When researching Kauai, I found that some opt for the north shore, and some for the south. Can someone explain the difference between the two?
We both love the sun, GREAT beaches, nightlife and would like a luxury experience! However, we also want something without too many children running around. I also think it is important that we are able to explore and see the beauty of Kauai too! Our budget is around $8,000 for the entire trip (minus airfare).
Should we go to the north or south shore, and where should we stay?
