Tough choice, but probably terrestrial. For me they're easier to feed and maintain, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy an enclosure with Alpine newts or some other semi-aquatic or aquatic newt

I'd have to say Semi-Aquatic would have to be my favorite! I enjoy building vivariums that are half land half water alot more than fully aquatic. Plus watching them prance around the land and as well as swimming around is very entertaining imo xD

I prefer aquatic, as that is the majority of what I have kept and I love aquascaping, but I would love to someday set up an interesting semi-aquatic vivarium.

I like all, but I tend to prefer terrestrial. Easier maintenance in my opinion and I can do more with the tank. With aquatic setups it takes a lot more effort to make a nice looking tank with a background and such. All my aquatic tanks are just sand, plants, and water. Whereas terrestrial I can build underground areas, plant with ferns and mosses, create hills or diverts and such, position logs and bark in certain ways, etc. Semi aquatic setups are just kind of annoying though, to me.
