      Had a week in Maui in April. Loved it. Great beaches for snorkeling or surfing - take your pick. Rain forest on the north flank of the volcano, vastly varied climate/vegetation over really short distances. Good food. Local craft beer. Will be going back, that is certain.

      I agree Waikiki was a tad disappointing for one of the most famous beaches in the world but to compare it with Blackpool is ridiculous.

      On the other hand if you don't do Pearl Harbour, which I believe is on the other main Island, (We did a 2 centre holiday), you will regret it for the rest of your life, it was a superb experience.

      Is this the result of you wearing that shirt at The Emirates in Sunday?
      What came first, the holiday idea or the shirt idea

      Loved Maui - less commercialised and quieter than Oahu

      Toured US for our honeymoon a dozen years ago and spent a week in Kauai. I've seen a fair bit of the world and it was pretty much the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Grew up in Shoreham so not a beach person, but was overwhelmed by the endless choice of stunning deserted beaches. Every corner you turn is another vista unlike any other. They filmed Indiana Jones first scenes there and it's where Captain Cook was killed, it also has a fissure through the middle that looks like the grand canyon. Strangely no ham and pineapple on anything. It's a schlep though, we went from Vegas to San Francisco for a week, then flew via a 3 hour stop over in Honolulu.
