Hi guys, need your advice. We will be visiting Hawaii for the first time this September. Did extensive research. h and it looks like Maui would be nice. We are a couple in 30s and I will be 4 month pregnant. From what I read, I think we will do Road to Hana one day, then Haleakala National Park another day and the rest we will visit different beach every day. I think we would like to spend a day on Big Beach, Kaanapali Beach, Paia Bay, Peahi (Jaws) and maybe to take a look at Baldwin Beach, Red Sand Beach (Kaihalulu), Black Sand Beach (Oneuli). I’m planning to have a 7 day vacation and take it easy. I like the mixture of relaxing one day on the beach and then doing something next day. We were planning on renting a car just for 2 days to go to Hana and Haleakala. But it looks like it says that you have to have a car all the time. Please let me know what you think taking a look at my itinerary. Do I really need to have a car for all 7 days? Are those beaches that I’m interested in accessible by a cab ride, let’s say if a cab ride to a beach is like $5-10, I would rather do that instead of having car all 7 days. I was planning on booking a good resort at Kaanapali Beach to be close to everything. But if you say that I need a car every single day to go where I want, even visit beach, then I guess the location where you stay doesn’t matter much and I shouldn’t be forking out a lot for a specific location.
Your advices will be greatly appreciated!
