I lived on the Big Island (Not oahu – hawaii), for a few years and LOVED it.  I’d say it depends on what kind of honeymoon you are going for.  If you want resort spa and relax style, I’d say go to Maui.  If you want an on-the-move adventure style, head over to the Big Island. (Lava hikes, black sand beaches, beautiful views and stargazing on top of mauna kea, horseback riding, scuba, snorkling, cliff jumping at teh southern most point of the US …. just to name a few.) No matter which island you choose – BUY THE BLUE BOOK for that island!!  Almost every LOCAL keeps one because they are so great.

We went to Oahu and loved it!  It’s definitely a bit more touristy, but we figured it would be best to start with Oahu and on later trips branch out to the other islands.  Also, island hopping does take time and money out of your trip.  We were there for a week and found plenty to do and see!

There are many condos for rent on the island that go for about $150 a night that includes a kitchen.  My fiance and I went to Maui and stayed in a condo in Kihei and we were literally across the street from the beach.  It helped to have a kitchen so that we didn’t have to go to a restaurant for every meal.  We always had breafast at the condo.  We also stopped by Costco to buy fruits and snacks for our stay.

I second the recommendation for the blue book!  It’s a really great guide.

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon on Oahu, and it was fantastic. We stayed at the Pacific Beach hotel (which was fabulous). We were there for a week, and I think that total we spent about three thousand dollars, maybe a little over that.

I’ve been to the Big Island, Oahu and Maui, and all three were really different from each other.  But I looooved Maui and Oahu – a good mix of beaches, outdoor activities and some city life.
