My family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children, ages 10, 14 and 16) will be in Maui and Hawaii in August. We are looking forward to an adventurous vacation.
After lots of research and advice, I've come up with this itinerary.
Day 1 - 6 - Staying at Honua Kai Resort in Maui. Canopy Tour at Piiholo Ranch Zipline. Discover Lanai tour through Trilogy Excursions. Luau. Snorkeling. Black Rock Beach. Relaxing.
Day 6 - 7 - Arrive in Hilo, Hawaii. Spend night at Volcano House. Volcano National Park and Kilauea Caverns of Fire.
Day 7 - 11 - Drive over to Kona, Hawaii. Stay in Castle Hali Kai. Secret Warrior Tour through Pack & Paddle. Akaka Falls, Waipio Valley Lookout. Snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. Relaxing.
I'm hoping I chose accommodations and adventures that will fit my adventurous family. Of course, cost is a factor, but we realize this is not going to be an inexpensive vacation.
Are there any adventures or specific beaches you would recommend?
Looking forward to your thoughts.
