Kauai or Maui

What about the choice between visiting Maui or Kauai, if we can only visit one more island, which one should we do?

Thanks.

This is such a tough question because we don't know you.

The best advice is to read past threads with this very question....and there are MANY.....

We've been to both island many times. We prefer Kauai but it really depends on what you are looking for! What type of activities are you interested in?

You're posting this on the Kauai board , full of Kauai lovers, so the answers will be biased towards Kauai. Post the same question on the Maui board and they'll be telling you Maui.

I suggest you do some serious reading and think about what kind of traveler you are and what type of vacation you want.

Either one will be a wonderful choice. Next year, go to the other one. :)

Agreee....

Pick which ever island suits you the best this year, and next year visit the other.

We very much enjoy visiting our neighbor islands, and have always had a great time.....not only as visitors, but as kamaainas as well.

Heard that Maui is too tourist-SY. Wish that we have the same opportunity another year, unfortunately, not likely at all :(

We love scenery of oceans and cliffs, not a beach person, or shopping etc.
