Information for Travelers
Hawaii, a US state, is an isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific.
Its islands are known for the rugged landscapes made up of cliffs, waterfalls, rainforests and beaches with golden, red, black and even green sand.
Hawaii's tropical climate and the laid-back atmosphere of the Pacific Islands are just part of what makes the state so special.
All around them all, the mighty Pacific is home to a plethora of ocean life, offering endless opportunities to snorkel, scuba, surf or simply take a dip after sunbathing.
Perhaps the most special of the islands, however, are its people, whose welcoming attitude makes you feel truly in paradise.
Of the 6 main islands, Oahu has Hawaii's largest city and capital, Honolulu, which is home to the crescent-shaped Waikiki Beach and World War II memorials at Pearl Harbor.
Occupying the tops of towering volcanic mountains jutting from the sea, these islands have a diverse and beautiful landscape that ranges from the lunar surface of Kilauea volcano to lush green forests filled with exotic flowers.
Waterfalls descend the mountain's slopes like tears on the dramatic coast of Na Pali, while ancient rivers have dug deep into the rock of Kauai to create Waimea Canyon.
Big Island is home to an active volcano, and Oahu is home to Pearl Harbor and its rich history.
