We are going on our honeymoon in October and splitting in between Maui and Kauai (5 nights each). We were thinking of either staying in the Poipu area or Wailua area. It seems you can get a better value in the Wailua area and it is more centrally located between the northern portion and the southern portion which I am assuming we will want to go to at least 2 or 3 days to see the Waimea Canyon and beaches in the south and the Na Pali Coast State Park and beaches in the north. I was wondering if there was other nice things to do in the Wailua area. I know the beaches and weather are beautiful in the Poipu area if we chose to stay there.
Any suggestions will be helpful of must-see/do things. We want to make sure we experience Hawaii and don't just spend our time lounging at the resort, but I am sure we will want some relaxation as it will be our honeymoon.
