Will be spending Oct in Hawaii, going to Oahu, Kauai but cant decide on Maui or The Big Island(not sure I got enough time to visit all 4).
I like gettin out and about, hiking,adventure sports,generally being outdoors and was just wondering which one people would suggest?

Thanks in advance

I always say Maui is a cross between Kauai & Oahu....It's beautiful and laid back like Kauai (I'm orginally from Kauai, but now live on Oahu).....but, Kauai is not as commercialized as Maui.

The Big Island is known for it's volcanoes....i guess it depends on what you really want to do.

They are all beautiful & special and different...good luck with your decision.

If u have the time, I'd recommend seeing all of them!

Have fun!

Cheers for reply

maybe thats the best idea and Ill go to the four islands, do you think 6weeks would be enough time to appreciate all four?

Thanks again
