    Depending on when you would be going, Maui has some great beaches and is much less crouded and easier to get around on. There is a fantastic bike ride you can do down the volcano, mostly coasting and the views are awesome. We took the sunrise tour, were there for sunrise and stopped for breakfast on the way before ending at the beach. Io valley has excellent hiking, Hana Road is best with a touring company. I found one that took us in a limo, and included all waterfall stops, and a winery tour on the way home.

    Maui is a wonderful Island but is also the most expensive. The resorts vary from outrageous to simple. But expect to spend at least 40% more for a resort in Maui over Oahu. The Mahanna in Kaanapali is a oceanfront Condo ..Amazing views. And The Maui Kai and Kaanapali Beach Club all next to each other and nice resorts. Mahanna is more for adults then children because not many activities but the best oceanfront condo property in Maui. Now the big resorts Mauna Kai, Westin, Shearton etc are all beautiful but very pricy. I suggest renting from a owner through VRBO.com and you get better rates even at the big resorts. But Hawaii is so diverse and each Island has diffrent advantages. What are you looking for in a vacation ? Do you have children ? etc etc. More input and we can assist you better.

    HI Kathy, Summertime, when families descend on Hawai‘i, constitutes high season. So does wintertime (from mid-December through March), when a blanket of brrrr covers most of the mainland. Holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Easter also draw throngs. Be careful about coming in late April: There are three simultaneous holidays in Japan at that time, which means the Japanese are traveling in greater numbers than usual. In general, the north and eastward facing coasts tend to get more rain. But even when it's raining on the north or eastern shore, it's often not on the south or westerly shores. And rain showers don't tend to last that long, like they do on the mainland.
