I will have 8 nights on Oahu at the end of August and I am currently trying to work out how long to stay and where to get a good feel for the variety of the island but without too much rushing around.
My initial thought is to do something like:
> 3 nights Waikiki
> 2 nights Kailua (or nearby)
> 2 nights somewhere on the North Shore
> 1 night Honolulu (somewhere not to far from the airport with a very early flight the next morning).
This way, we would rent a car from leaving Waikiki to arriving in Honolulu (or wherever the final night is).
Does this seem sensible and give enough variety? We will probably break up each day with some walks, sightseeing, snorkelling etc. We will have some beach/pool time but that won't be the main focus of the trip.
Many thanks for any advice you can offer.
