My Partner and I arrive in Honolulu on 14th October and fly out again on the 23rd. Originally we were planning to stay the whole time on Oahu - we are now questioning whether its worth flying to Kauai for 3 days during this time. I was also looking at Maui but Kauai seems smaller and I'm hoping a contrast from Oahu.
I'd like to see nice beaches, do some snorkelling/paddleboarding, the canyons - anything else? Alternatively is there a day trip from Oahu that would be better (although I imagine a lot more expensive)?
If you can give me any advise on how we can spend 3 days in Kauai (or should we stay on Oahu) that would be great
