    Big Island would probably be the cheapest.

    Get a job first or have a marketable skills. No sense moving here and then working three jobs just to make ends meet.

    My roommate and a couple buddies got hammered at crushfest about 6 months ago and drunkenly decided to buy a one way ticket that night to Hawaii. They progressed from living on the beach in hammocks, to a couple beater vans that both broke down, and now are living in an apartment in Maui and sounds like there having a blast. Surprisingly, they said it was pretty easy to find work, as long as you were actually willing to work while there. Doesn't really help much with location though, but if they can pull it off, anyone can.

    windward side is probably has the nicest neighborhoods, but if you are looking for cheap the westside is your best option. Has a reputation of theft though

    Oahu:
    pros- near constant surf (a summer on NS is better than a summer on EC) surf/tiny bikinis/weather/seafood/multiple 'coasts' and town or country life, depending on your choice

    cons- brazzos and lots of military 'bros' driving up rent prices

    ohh wonderful point! you gotta love that Socialist institution called the US Military for really gumming up the housing market in areas near bases. It's bad here in Wilmington bc we're an hour away from a USMC base (not to mention a college town and a retirement mecca now) i wonder what the "free money" housing allowance is these days for the Military? haaa "Free Money"
