No other Hawaiian island was included.
The survey was for "islands" not just tropical islands. There's many factors besides swimming and beaches. Looking at it this way I can see some of the beautiful and diverse islands listed making the list but there are still some that make no sense.
I read a little more closely - USA Today and 10 Best apparently have more readership where they are headquartered, that might explain all of the east coast faves....
Balboa Island beats most of them.
