Which island is the best to go to for a relaxing vacation?

All the islands have their quiet, secluded spots for peace and quiet. It all depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for shopping, state of the art hospitals, tourist, night, life, lots of people and some secluded places, than Oahu is for you. If you like hiking, outdoors, and no night life, than Kauai is for you. If you'd like a median of Oahu and Kaui, Maui is for you. If you are looking for the life style of the 30's and 40's, then Molokai or Lanai is for you. Lastly, if you like wide open spaces, hunting, fishing, and farming, then the Big Island is for you.

For an absolutely RELAXING Hawaiian vacation, my top choices are KAUAI (anywhere, but my favorite is the North Shore) and MAUI (especially the north east shore anywhere along the road to Hana). Both of these locations are away from the hustle & bustle and offer incredible beauty to just RELAX!

I would have to say Kauai since we just returned from our third vacation there. The atmosphere is so relaxing and there is absolutely no 'hustle and bustle' - it's wonderful! There are so many beautiful places to unwind and enjoy. Gets harder to come back every time.
