I'm heading to Maui in Oct. From my experiences from when I was stationed in Pearl, were lots of free things. The old highway that goes over the
top of the mountain to Koneohe(sp?) Bay. And then there's H2 or H3 (the tunnel). Would suggest going thru after a storm, the waterfalls and then
the clouds being blown over the mountaintops is really cool too.
Blowhole is a cool little pullout on the way to Haunauma Bay. There's also sand beach (I think its called) where you can actually do some smaller
wave surfing (body/boogie). The old aquarium is right next to Magnum P.I.'s house as well as the Real World house. That was 15 yrs ago, so that
might have been redeveloped. Diamondhead is really cool, but expect a big hike, the view from top is worth it.
If you can make it onto Ford Island for the Arizona tour I would recommend highly. You'll get to see the Missouri I believe who is moored next to
her. Her deck guns are freaking huge! And by huge I mean huge. 9 - 16 inchers I believe. It's amazing how big that ship is. There's also a WWII
era submarine thats across from the Island moored next to the bridge, I'm not sure how much tours are for that, but it might be worth a look if
that's your sort of thing.
Have fun over there. Don't let the tourists get to you, but honestly I think this is tapering off of the main tourist season anyway. Waikiki beach
is cool, it doesn't have any big waves, quite a few breaks set up, and I believe lifeguards on duty as well.
