    I would stay in Maui.  There is so much to do there we are having trouble fitting it in 7 days!  Pearl Harbor is interesting, but not so romantic in my opinion.

    There is a lot to do on both islands. However if you try to split your time between two islands you may find that you won’t be happy. Pearl Harbor is really cool, but seeing the Arizona is free and it fills up quickly for the day. Oahu is very pretty but it is very very busy. Maui is more laid back and romantic, but it has a lot of adventure too. You could go surfing, zip lining, scuba diving, etc. The Hawaiian Islands are amazing to visit ( I should know I lived there), and there is so much to do, I would just stay on one island to better enjoy it.

    I have not been to Hawaii to really give a knowledgable answer. But it seems like island hopping might suck up time when you are already losing 2 days to travel. I would just stay on the one. It’s always nice to have a reason to go back, right?

    I was lucky to get to go to Maui and spent about 6 days there.  There was plenty to do and see.  Since it’s your honeymoon, I would recommend just staying on one island so you can relax and have a leisurely trip.  With only 5 days, trying to see two islands might feel more chaotic and rushed.

    My DH and I went to Maui for 6 days and we could have stayed even longer! I definately reccommend going to just Maui. It was amazing! If you have any questions about Maui, feel free to PM me! 🙂 Hawaii is amaaaazing! You’re going to LOVE it.

    We’re splitting a week and a half at both. If history is important to you then you shoudl know that there are quite a few museums/cultural centers on Maui.
    FH and I will be spending the first week and a half of August on the two islands- mostly museum hopping so I can’t really tell you the quality, just what we plan to do.

    (On Oahua there’s not only Pearl Harbor/Arizona but there’s also the Army museum, FH’s grandfather was in the Pacific Theater at the end of the war and then his father and mother were stationed there in the 80s so we really want to visit those museums)

    6 days in Maui only will be an Awesome Honeymoon.  I stayed 5 days for a trip and I didn’t want to leave.  One of my co-workers just came back from a 2wk stint and she tried to work remote from there permanently:)

    I have been to Maui, and would strongly suggest staying there for the duration of your honeymoon. We were there for a week, and did everything we wanted to do without feeling either rushed or bored. If you allow for some beach/pool time, leisurely days exploring Lahaina, the Road to Hana, a little shopping, the black sand beaches, and a luau, you’re absolutely set for a week.
