Big Island or Oahu?

My wife and I (early 30s) are trying to decide whether to go to Oahu or the Big Island? We have already decided to spend 4 days in Lanai. We have already been to Kauai and Maui. Any thoughts? We just want to relax, do a little hiking, but we are not big scuba divers or anything.

I cast my vote for the big island, the only one with an active volcano.

Oahu is my favorite--action and variety (and beauty) on Waikiki and scenic beauty driving around the island and up Mt. Tantalus, Pali Lookout, Punchbowl Cemetery, etc.

doc04, I love all the islands, but if you're going to enjoy all that quiet on Lanai, I would spend the rest of the time on Oahu.

How much time do you have? If it's more than 2 or 3 days I'd recommend the BI, as it has more diverse hiking -- but distances between attractions are greater. If you have only a couple of days Oahu might be a better choice.

Oahu is the best. There's more to do than all of the other islands combined.

Lots to do on Oahu. Most of the websites are good for all islands:
