We are planning our honeymoon for this October. Never been to Hawaii, and would like to get some quality relaxing/beach time, snorkel, be able to walk to restaurants/bars. After a few days of relaxing we'd like to do some adventurous stuff - hike, see waterfalls, take a boat trip maybe, take a helicopter trip maybe. Is Ka'anapali beach a good place to stay for all of that?
Also, I don't think we want to stay in a condo. But we would really love to stay around $200/night so that we have room to do excursions/nice dinners.
While we would love to island hop and also see Kauai and BI, I don't think we'll be able to afford it, and I'm looking for a place where we can do/see a lot of different things. Also airfare looks to be the same for us to go into Honolulu or Maui.
I would love your thoughts on whether you think this is a good fit for us, or if you think we should try something else. I've got my travel books, and I"m reading, but what can I say? I like to turn to Trip Advisor experts with these kind of questions :)
