Kona, The Big Island Hawaii

What is the best island in the world?

I’m all about the beach vacations so I was very excited to see this post.

I have to say I have not been to any of the islands listed, though some were already on my bucket list before I read this article. They are ALL on the bucket list now! The closest of these islands I have been is to #1 Maui, and have visited three other Hawaiian Islands, but not Maui (yet).  I enjoyed my time on Oahu, The Big Island and Kauai, and by far Kauai is my favourite. It’s laid back, relaxed, and more of the small surfer village style as opposed to Oahu which is a shopping mecca, of course, in Honolulu.  I’ve had disagreements…um, I mean “discussions” about which island is the best. It all depends on what you like to do. Me… beaches and sightseeing, pools and sunshine and my Kindle or Kobo H20. I sure wish my Kindle was waterproof… now there’s another blog post for the future!

Bora Bora is the next on my wishlist. I can’t describe how much I want to stay in one of the huts out on the water. If you saw my Pinterest account, most of my travel posts include images of the huts in Maldives and Bora Bora.

The other island I’d like to highlight is Santorini. This island has been on my bucket list since 2008 when I was in Greece. I am still regretting not extending my vacation by a few more days so I could visit Santorini. One day I will go back!

Do you agree with this post with the Traveller’s Choice Awards? What are your favourite islands that you want to go back to over and over again?
