Can OAHU compete with the Big Island and Kauai?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I always plan a January anniversary trip to a warm tropical island to escape our dreary rainy January weather. (Yes even in southern california, January is dreary and rainy.)

In January 2012 I fell in love with the Big Island of Hawaii...my favorite island in the world. I loved the sense of culture on the island; the Volcanoes National park; Mauna Kea; swimming with the turtles; and Hilo. Loved the tropical breakfasts at Shipman House B&B in Hilo. Loved exploring the whole island...never ran into a traffic jam.

Where to go in January 2013?? My husband is suggesting Oahu. It's an easy flight from San Diego. But I'm wondering...will Oahu be disappointing and touristy, compared to the Big Island and Kauai?

We have also been to the Caribbean, but it's such a long flight from California. Hawaii is closer!

I'd like to hear your opinions and suggestions.
