    I spent 3 weeks in Hawaii in May. My time was split between Kauai and the Big Island. Kauai is definitely less crowded and touristy, although there are some bigger resorts/areas where you'll find a lot of people (especially the Poipu beach area -- beautiful but lots of condos, hotels, and restaurants). Still, with some research you'll find there are several isolated beaches and quieter resorts. The purpose of my vacation was more for active travel than for romance, but I don't think you'll go wrong with Kauai. Plus I found everyone to be very friendly and helpful. Definitely plan to rent a car to get around the island.

    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.

    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.
