I have no advice but just wanted to say YAY!!! – how exciting!  I have no idea where we’re going and I love to see what others decide to do!

Hope you get some good tips from the hive!

I went to Maui for the first time in September and it was so fun!  I stayed with a friend that lives in Kihei, so I got the insider tips.  The day we drove the Road to Hana was one of the funnest days I had there.  We stopped and did a hike through the bamboo forest which was amazing!  I would have no idea how to find it without the locals though, and you would definitely want to follow someone else on the hike who knew where they were going.  We also stopped at the Venus pools (freshwater meets ocean) and the freshwater cave at the state park. 

The Old Lahaina Luau is the best one on the island, if you want to do a luau.  A snorkel trip to Molokini is a must.  All the beaches are fantastic – if you go to Makena beach/Big Beach, Little Beach is a short hike from there and its the topless beach.  We splurged on a meal at Spago in the Four Seasons in Wailea, one of the best meals I’ve ever had.  Have a great honeymoon, you can’t go wrong in Maui!

We just got back from a trip to both Oahu and Maui! 

 

Oahu – definitely make a trip up Diamondhead.  The views are amazing.  We generally don’t go around the island, so I’m not much help on Oahu.

 

Maui – HANA!  There are books and tapes you can read/listen to on your way that will guide you if you don’t have a guide.  You can also hire a guide.  Make sure to stop at the Waianapanapa State Park – black sand beaches.  Best swim ever.  Take a trip to Haleakala Crater – beautiful sunrise on top of the volcano too. Eat at the local places – Da Kitchen in Kihei is in a little strip mall and DELISH!  Lahaina is fun too, lots of shopping places and great places to eat.  Where in Maui are you staying?  You will definitely need a car if you want to go a lot of places.

 

My FH’s family goes every year, we’ve gone 3 times in the time we’ve been together, he’s been 15 times or so.
