The core of the Hawaiian Islands consists of 8 islands in the southeastern part of the archipelago (central Pacific). From west to east are the islands of Ni’ihau, Kaua’i, Oahu, Molokai, Lana’i, Kahoolawe, Maui, and Hawai’i. To avoid name confusion, the last island, Hawaii, is often referred to as the Big Island. Hawaii is usually associated with these 8 large islands, largely because the other 124 islands total about 8 square kilometers. The largest island in the archipelago, Hawaii (Big Island) has an area of 10,432 square kilometers.

Hawaii is a dream for millions of tourists. And no wonder – the beautiful Pacific Ocean archipelago features breathtaking scenery, paradisiacal beaches, an amazingly distinctive culture and a comfortable atmosphere that attracts travelers all year round. What’s worth seeing in Hawaii?

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was established back in 1916. In it, you can admire the breathtaking volcanic landscape. What’s interesting is that it is home to two of the world’s most active and largest volcanoes, allowing scientists to delve into the processes that led to the Hawaiian archipelago, as well as further research into seismic activity in the region. The park is also an ideal place to enjoy observing the rarest species of animals and plants.

Haleakala National Park

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

Haleakala National Park, located on the island of Maui, was originally part of Hawaii Volcano Park. However, it was eventually designated as a separate unit. It represents an area of 118 km2, of which about 100 km2 are places where no man has set foot. Tourists are allowed to visit the park only by a special, winding road along the windward side of the island. Its name in the local language means “home of the sun,” and local legends say that the hero of Maui imprisoned the celestial luminary here so that the day would last longer.

Honolulu

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

Honolulu is the largest city in the Hawaiian archipelago and the state capital. It is a major center of international business, and the famous Pearl Harbor is also located here. What is interesting, Honolulu, in Hawaiian, means “protected place”. In terms of architecture, Honolulu in particular can not boast of anything. Hotels, residential high-rises, mid-rise office skyscrapers in the business center, restaurants on the roofs – any big city in the United States is full of it. The famous Waikiki Promenade, Honolulu’s main district, is markedly different from the rest of the city, but it does not shine with the originality of Las Vegas or the monumentality of Chicago. There are two main streets with one-way traffic and wide sidewalks, and a lot of hotels, restaurants and stores for every taste. Honolulu is located in the southern part of the island of Oahu. Oahu is the third largest and most populated island in Hawaii. The population of Honolulu within the city limits is 390,000 (as of 2010). Population within the Honolulu Metropolitan Statistical Area (the city itself and the rest of the island of Oahu) is 953,000. The year-round population of visitors to Honolulu is enormous.

Molokini

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

Molokini is a tiny island about 4 miles off the coast of Maury Island. It appeared as a result of the flooding of a volcano crater and now it has become a unique landmark because its shape resembles a crescent. This place also attracts fans of diving – the water around it is incredibly clean and clear, and visibility reaches 46 m. Molokini Atoll was formed about 15,000 years ago by lava bursting out of a volcano crater. Inside this natural rocky crescent there are over 250 species of fish, and 38 species of coral not found anywhere else in the Pacific.

Wailua Falls

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

Wailua Falls is one of the highest waterfalls located in Hawaii. It is 35 meters high and is located on the island of Kauai. The path to the foot of Wailua is muddy and slippery. Every year extreme sports enthusiasts install ropes along the entire route, but local officials remove them after a while, because of the danger of such walks. Interestingly, in the past, local Hawaiians, in order to prove their manhood, threw themselves down this waterfall. Despite the illegality and danger of such actions, even today there are brave men who can repeat such a feat.

Hanauma Bay

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

An ideal spot for snorkeling is Hanauma Bay on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, which is about 16 km from Waikiki. The underwater world of this place has a fairly wide range of flora and fauna (a scattering of up to 450 species of fish). Hanauma Bay, which means “crooked bay” is a very popular place and a famous tourist attraction. According to statistics, it is visited by at least three million tourists every year. It is also a national park and there is a ban on mistreatment of animals and any contact with the coral reef. Hanauma Bay is also home to green sea turtles.

Center for Polynesian Culture

7 places worth visiting in Hawaii

The Polynesian Cultural Center is a theme park, or, as some call them, a “living museum. It is located on the north shore of the island of Oahu. In addition to the traditional and permanent exhibitions, you can take part in additional sports and recreational activities here. For example, every evening there is a show in which artists present the intercultural character of Polynesia, most often through traditional dancing.

Hawaii’s natural and varied landscapes, warm tropical climate, abundance of public sandy beaches and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers and scientists.

In 1959, Hawaii was designated the 50th state of the United States. Hawaii is separated from the continental United States by more than 3,800 kilometers. Hawaii is the most ethnically and racially diverse state, including people of European, American, Polynesian, Japanese, and other origins. Hawaii is the only state in the United States with an official local language. Despite the influx of tourists, many native Hawaiians have preserved their customs and traditions.
