Somehow I didn't even see that one, lol. Looks more comfortable than Key West, though not nearly as many thunderstorms I would imagine.

How is Fraser Island not tropical? It has a mean of 18C in the coldest month and never had frost.

Of the choice Honolulu because i've been there twice.

But St Maarten I like equally if not a tad better.
