When my fam was doing one of the Napali Coast boat tours in Kauai (must do, IMO, if you end up there),
one of the crew members on the boat was from somewhere landlocked in the US, had moved to the big island
for a while, but was living on Kauai at the time. She had spent time on several of the islands over several
years. When I asked her that question, she said big island, hands-down. Said there was so much diversity
in geography and even different climates compared to most of the others. I'd never really considered going
there over others, but would love to check it out.

Sounds like the Big Island it is. Kona being the good zone to get accommodations.

thanks and any other info would be great.
