Boracay is one of the best I've seen.

But actually most touristic islands are quite nice.

The Big island is actually the second highest island in the world, after New Guinea, which is the second biggest and highest island in the world (which I should have also mentioned). The Maldives etc are really nice, but there's nothing there that you can't find in dozens of other isles.
I'll agree with HI. Was lucky enough to live there for a while, trying to get back ASAP. Been to oahu, kauai, maui, BI, Lanai though. Each one has it's own uniqueness, and the Big Island continues to be my favorite corner of the world.. no other place like it.
