Ok, so I wanted to ask the Oakley forum for some help. I've been planning a nice Christmas vacation for a few years now. I really want to go to Hawaii for the week of Christmas. So, here's my issue: I'm not sure if I want to spend my vacation on the island of Oahu (where Waikiki and Honolulu are) or if I want to go to the island of Maui. Oahu has some of the best nightlife and a mixture of just about everything. Maui is about the same with less nightlife and more of a laid-back relaxation atmosphere in comparison to the hustle and bustle of Oahu. Oahu is more like the Los Angeles of Hawaii while Maui is more like the, I would venture to say, country setting. I've done some research and is seems like Oahu has it all when it comes to having everything but, Maui seems to as well; just more laid back and slower paced. I'm 28 years old and I'm flying solo. So, I'm guessing that the hustle and bustle part would be somewhat of a welcome but, I'm not really a huge nightlife guy. I'm more of the relax when possible and do some sightseeing type. I'll be there for about 5-7 days. I want to snorkel/scuba dive, kayak, some surf lessons (never been surfing before), see some beautiful nature sights, and do some shopping and relaxing on the beach. If going to Oahu, I was thinking about staying at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore to stay somewhat away from Honolulu and Waikiki for a more peaceful stay and then just visit as needed or wanted. Not sure where to stay on Maui if I were to go there. Recommendations would be great. Any suggestions would be great.
