State description

The Hawaiian Islands are a true Pacific paradise. Americans call this federal state of the United States “Aloha”. The name “Aloha” has several meanings – “love”, “welcome” and “happiness”. Indeed, when vacationing on the Hawaiian Islands, you experience endless happiness and joy from the luxurious greenery of the islands, the warm climate, and beautiful beaches.

The Hawaiian Islands are located between America and Asia. The archipelago consists of about 24 large and 120 small islands. They include the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Niihau and others. They are called the pearls of the Pacific Ocean. The islands were created as a result of volcanic eruptions. They were discovered by James Cook. The English navigator gave them the name “Sandwich Islands”. This happened back in 1778.

Hawaii is the fiftieth state of the United States. The islands are located 4 thousand km from San Francisco. The capital city of Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu, means “quiet harbor” in the Hawaiian language.

The territory of the islands is mainly occupied by tropical forests and savanna. For a long time, Hawaii, thanks to its magnificent forests, wild beaches, and pristine nature, was not inferior to the beauty of Polynesia. But now you can see not only the beauty of untouched nature but also a string of high-rise buildings, skyscrapers, towers located along the sandy coasts. Hawaii is an outpost of the United States. The territory of the islands includes volcanoes. Kilauea and Mauna Loa are active volcanoes.

Thanks to the excellent climatic conditions, bananas, coffee, and nuts are grown here. Hawaii is the leading country in the world in terms of pineapple exports and sugar production.

However, it is not only agriculture that determines the economy of Hawaii. Hawaiian beaches, lush flowering vegetation, a developed service sector, top-class hotels attract tourists from all over the world. Waikiki beaches are especially popular among vacationers. A huge number of hotels have been built here. The beaches of Hawaii are popular for windsurfing. There is always beautiful weather, clear warm water, and huge waves. Coral reefs amaze everyone who has visited the Hawaiian Islands at least once with their beauty. And voluptuous Hawaiian tunes at night discos will delight lovers of nightlife.

There are many different attractions on the islands. The whole family can go to the Hawaiian Volcanic National Park, visit Kapiolani Park and Moana, the palace of the Iolani Kings. Art lovers will be interested in the exhibition at the Lyman Museum in Hilo. The famous Pearl Harbor is located on the island. Military bases located on the islands are closed to tourists. But those who wish can visit the war memorial museum, which is named Pearl Harbor.

Hawaii, like a magnet, attracts connoisseurs of the beauty of nature and comfortable rest. Magnificent beaches, a light ocean breeze, the rays of the gentle sun, the aromas of unusual tropical flowers will make your vacation in the Hawaiian Islands truly unforgettable.
