With so many beaches and so much sun, how do you choose among the Hawaiian Islands? Travel + Leisure readers managed to do it, and voted Kauai as the best of the bunch. Islands were judged on natural attractions, activities/sights, restaurants/food, people, and value. And though T+L readers might skew higher budget than the traveling public in general, Kauai really can be an affordable destination.
Kauai came in second on the worldwide list of best islands, behind Bali. And guess which one of those destinations has cheaper airfare from the U.S. Here's a hint: It's not Bali.
