Which of the islands is in a more natural state where you are likely to see real Hawaii as opposed to tourist meccas?

This is kind of what each island has to offer. 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 me, Molokai is the best, but actually any of the neighbor islands are less touristy than Oahu.
