She will want to lay on the beach and ill just be down with relaxing


On a separate note..... Anyone ever fish for the peacock bass? Sounds like it would be fun


When are you coming?

Instead of Waikiki, might I suggest a trip to Kona on the Big Island instead. You can still lounge on the beach or you can take day trips to see some interesting sights.

If Oahu, take the Atlantis submarine tour or a seaplane tour. There is a local USPSA club match the Saturday you are there. If you want to get really exotic you can always invite me down to Waikiki to buy you and your bride a beer.

Big Island has numerous options including helicopter tours of the volcano, offshore fishing, manta ray dives, or even just cruising around the island.

what I meant to ask is where on Oahu to stay other than Waikiki/HNL area
our tickets are to HNL so first option would be Oahu


Outside of Waikiki there is Turtle Bay on the north shore, Ko Olina, and the new Disney resort.

+1 for staying at Turtle Bay. We have the best beaches on the island out here.

Are you military? There is a 5 star military hotel in Waikiki and rental cabins througout Hawaii.

The Hale Koa is not close to "5 star". Forget the cabins at Bellows unless you are active USAF and forget the cabins in Waianae for other reasons. The cabins at the volcano on the Big Island are pretty cool if you can get in, the wife and I had a second honeymoon there when I got back from deployment in 2006.
