Default What part of Hawaii is the best vacation spot?

My hubby and I were planning on going to Hawaii for a few days in June.
I was wondering what place is best to stay to get the most out of it.
We want to get do some sight seeing of things like volcanoes and do some water sports. I would also like to check out a luau if possible.
I have heard that Honolulu is a packed city and I don't know that I want to be there, because I really don't care for the "big city" aspect of vacationing.
So what would you suggest?

The Big Island is the place for the Volcanoes, of course, and you can pretty much find tons of stuff to do over there including all of the activities you mentioned. Oahu is pretty packed, as you mentioned, and Waikiki is mainly about shopping, lounging at the beach, and fine dining. There are tons of activities on the rest of the island though, including hiking, snorkeling, and tons of watersports. I'd say for a laid back experience, the Big Island is the place to go though.

You could always fly inter-island as well...the fares aren't that expensive, and it allows you to see more of Hawaii.

I guess if I could recommend anything, it'd be the helicopter tours on the Big Island. They're pretty amazing...for sure.

Here's a few links:

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park - Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Stuff to do on the Big Island:
Big Island Activities - Big Island things to do, big island sightseeing tours, attractions, adventures, and activity planning.

Watersports on Oahu (I know the owner):
Water Sports Activities - Hanauma Bay Oahu Hawaii

Hope that helps!

It depends if you want to be in a crowded tourist place or f you want to be alone on the beach.
