Maui or Kauai?

Hello all!

We will be traveling to Hawaii in Oct. 07 for 2 weeks... we plan on spending a week on Oahu, and can't decide between Maui and Kauai for the other week. We want to stick to just 2 islands for a couple reason...1) we don't want to waste time at airports, and 2) we will be using Marriott points and staying in one place for a week is the most efficient use of them.

We are in our late 20's, we want some nightlfe, but we can probably satisfy that in Waikiki, so that isn't a big deal. Other than that, I think we mainly want to lay on the beach, hike, golf and maybe try kayaking and scuba diving.

Any suggestions on which would be the better choice?

Aloha Norman T! I just bumped a post titled "honeymoon help" It's all about Kauai . . . I have been to both Kauai and Maui and while I had fun on Maui, I much prefer Kauai. I hope that helps with your decision. :)
