Hawaii


    


Hawaii is one of the world’s most celebrated destinations. With its mild tropical climate, breathtaking scenery, rich cultural heritage, friendly people, outstanding shopping and dining and, of course, spectacular beaches, bring visitors back year after year.

Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America. Situated nearly at the center of the North Pacific Ocean, Hawaii marks the northeast corner of Polynesia.

There’s no place on earth like Hawaii. Whether you're a new visitor or returning, Hawaii’s six unique islands offer distinct experiences that will entice any traveler.

Hawaii has 8,800 native species found only in Hawaii. Sadly, most of the animals that  are only found in Hawaii are endangered. You will find  a variety of island fruits growing on roadside farms, along rainforest trails,  and in residential yards. Fruits like papaya, pineapple, coconut, macadamia  nut, coffee, mountain apple, guava, avocado, mango, oranges, lemon, lime,  lychee, grapefruit, star fruit, pomello, bananas, passion fruit, pomegranate,  taro, breadfruit, strawberry guava, and more!

Hawaii is an archipelago of over nineteen distinct volcanic islands located over a geological "hot spot" in the Central Pacific. The Pacific plate on which the islands ride moves to the northwest, so in general the islands are older and smaller (due to erosion) as you move from southeast to northwest. There are eight major islands, six of which are open to tourism.

 

Oahu Island

The most popular island is Oahu where you will find the capital of the state, Honolulu.  This island is also home to one of the most famous beaches in the world, Waikiki.









The Big Island or Hawaii Island

The biggest island of the main six islands in Hawaii, it is double the size of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined…

The big island of Hawaii experiences great weather year round and although it has two seasons, summer and winter, the temperatures are always balmy making the big island the perfect location for a vacation at any time of the year..

 





MAUI Island

The island of Maui has long since been known as the magical isle of Hawaii, it is a natural wonderland, full of enchanting beauty, and Maui is known for its spattering of luxury resorts where you are sure to have a romantic gateway right in the middle of the beautiful and natural surroundings.








KAUAI Island

 Kauai is known as the Garden Island for its lush, tropical beauty. Although small, it's jam-packed with things to do. You can hike, bike, swim, snorkel, surf, ride horses, boogie board or just relax... Kauai is very outdoors-oriented, and there's something for everyone.

 







Molokai

Known as "The Most Hawaiian Island" because approximately 40% of its 7,000 residents are of Hawaiian decent. Molokai takes you back... there is no building taller than a palm tree, so few automobiles that there are no streetlights, and no fast food restaurants. This is the least "touristy" of the main islands in Hawaii.

 






Lanai Island

The biggest pineapple plantation in the world is to be found here. It belongs to the Dole Pineapple Company. In spite of that Lanai is a wonderful place to go with gorgeous, lonesome beaches, hiking trails across a mountain region full of wild animals and its tiny, cool major town Lanai City at 1640 ft above sea level, where you find a handful of quite good hotels
