5. BEACH DAY ( EXPLORE AND SWIM AT DIFFERENT BEACHS)
6. VISIT THE MARKETS
8. SNORKELING AND PARASAILING

11. VISIT DOWNTOWN HONOLULU
12. PADDLE BOARDING
13. DAY CRUISE
14. VISIT MALL
15. FLY HOME
Do you think this will be okay? I never realized how huge Hawaii really is so have based our 2 weeks on 1 location to try and make the most of the time we have.
I also have a few questions.
1- what are the best markets to visit, for food and for crafts and what days are they on ?
2- what is the best mall in the Honolulu area to visit, and how big is it? will 1 day be enough to explore and shop?
3- best time of year to see whales and dolphins (for our cruise)
4- is there anything significant that we should see/visit that I haven't got listed?
5- are all of these places easy to get to via public transport ? We are able to hire a car but would prefer not to as only 1 of us drives and I don't want my partner to miss out on seeing the scenery and sights if he is stuck behind the wheel the whole time.
6- We enjoy seeing wildlife, what are some good places to see the wildlife in this area?
thank you for your time
note: we have not booked flights and have no set dates, so it is easy to move things around at this point in time
