Hi fellow travelers and Hawaii experts!
I am coming to you for advice and hope to get answers soon, because I must book places ASAP.
I'm having trouble deciding between spending time on Oahu's North Coast OR on Kauai including hiking and an Air Tour...
North Coast Only: 3-4 days
Get to North Coast on Saturday Night and spend the next 3-4 days there(shoreline, turtles, Dole Plantation) before meeting up with friends again on May 3.
Kauai Only: 3-4 days
Get to Kauai by plane on Saturday Night or Sunday Morning and do the Plane tour of the island, plus hiking.... other than that don't know much to do in Kauai.
Kauai AND North Coast: 2 days for each.
Get to Kauai on Sat Night or Sun Morning, do Plane tour and stay 1 night (or 2) , come back to Oahu, find accommodation on North Coast, explore, come back to Waikiki area after that.
Do we even have time to explore the East Coast of Oahu?
background: going there with my bf; we are excited about adventure and don't want to sit still, and want to experience the beauty and amazing activities of Hawaii.
Arrival Saturday 4/28, and free time until Thurs May 3.
Depart Sunday 5/6 evening
PROS for Kauai:
flying over the gorgeous coastiline and mtns is something I've
always wanted to do.
CONS for Kauai
extra travel costs, less time to enjoy Oahu in full.
