    My Hawaiian family lives in Diamond Head so I go to Oahu. My favorite place is Lanikai...so pretty!

    Next time we want to try another island. I may have to go to see the fam before I can skip to another island, but I am determined to get off Oahu...lol

    Where have you been? If you've been to more than one island how do they compare?

      I haven't been to any of the Hawaiian Islands but wanted to join this thread so i can see all the responses since we are getting married on Molokai and trying to decide on which other Island to have our HM.

      BTW - you are so lucky you have family living there!!!!

        I lived on O'ahu for five years in Kane'ohe and Honolulu (Nu'u'anu Valley). Both were great places to live. Lani'kai is really pretty too and Kai'lua is a fun little town.

        But absolutely adore Kaua'i, especially Hana'lei Bay. IMHO, there is no spot on earth more beautiful and serene. I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone. I used to visit family there about one a month and it is a place you never tire of. Try to avoid going in the winter months though, when it's rainy.

          I hope we get a lot of info! I love having family there, but if I went to another island without seeing them I would never hear the end of it...lol

          Thanks Bre, how cool that you lived there. I went to a picnic at the beach/park in Kai'lua last time I was there as a chaperone for my little cousin's field trip. Her sister's was the next day at Magic Island. Sure beats the field trips we had where I grew up...lol

          You aren't the first person who has told me Kaua'i is the favorite. Hmmm....

            I was on an Hawaiian cruise with family in August of 2006, and I'd have to say it's a toss up between Oahu and The Big Island. We swam with the dolphins in Oahu, and saw some BEAUTIFUL coastline and beaches, while in Kona (on the Big Island) we went kayaking, and I have never seen water so clear or so blue. We also stopped at Kona airport on our way home, and it was the nicest airport I had seen...grass huts for waiting areas, and there were no tunnel like walkways to the plane, you walked right on the tarmac. I really hope I get a chance to go back and explore both islands a little more in depth, one day in port for each was nowhere near enough.

              Wow, I WISH I could answer this one. I've never been to Hawaii, heck I've never even been to the West Coast!!!

                I have been to Maui and Kauai, and I liked Kauai more. It was so beautiful there!

                  I love Maui! It is so beautiful.

                  I heard Kauai is wonderful too, we are heading there in January.

                    Wow! I haven't been to Hawaii yet, but it has always been my dream honeymoon location. (Maybe for our anniversary or something!) But my dream spot is Kauai--I'd love to go and spend 2 uninterrupted weeks.

                      I lived on the Big Island for 4 years so I'm probably a little biased in my opinion :-) There's so much more diversity on that island. And, it's not nearly as touristy.
