Hawaii, the Big Island | Maui, the Magic Isle | Oahu, the Gathering Place | Kauai, the Garden Isle

 

                  

The Island of Kauai is also nicknamed the Garden Isle. It gets its' name because of all the lush beauty that is there. The Island of Kauai's flower is the Mokihana Berry and Kauai's color is purple. Some of the places to see when on Kauai are: The Menehune Fishpond (according to legend, constructed by menehunes between dusk to dawn), Prince Kuhio Park (Prince Kuhio was born here), Spouting Horn (a shoreline lava tube which has sea water compressed in it and pushes up like a geyser: a moaning sound exudes and legend says the legendary lizard, Lehu, was trapped here and we hear his cries), Waimea Canyon State Park, Koke'e State Park, The Fern Grotto, Sleeping Giant and many other fantastic and legendary sites.

 

 

Oahu is the best known island, and is often called the "Gathering Place", it is the third-largest island
with nearly 80% of the entire population of the Hawaiian islands. In Honolulu, you will find the center
of commerce and industry and the celebrated Waikiki beach. Waikiki beach is the center of Hawaiian
tourist activity offering beautiful scenic beachs, and the majestic Diamond Head rising majestically in
the background. Waikiki offers a wide variety of hotels, restaurants, and fine shopping, all within an
easy walking distance. MORE


Maui is the second-largest in the chain, and is known as the "Valley Isle". Maui is the site of
Haleakala National Park, an enormous dormant volcano. The port of Lahaina is a charming artistic community
and boasts a Wyland gallery. On the opposite side of the island is the small town of Hana with
beautiful jungles and lush vegetation.

Maui was transformed by two volcanoes and consists of grasslands, tropical rainforest, streams,
waterfalls, and white sandy beaches. Haleakala, the highest point of the island, affords views of
Molokai, Lana'i, Kaho'lawe, and the Big Island. Rustic Hawaiian lifestyles can be found at I'ao
Valley on the west side of Maui and Kahakuloa.

Whale watching is a favorite pastime in Maui. Humpback whales come to give birth and nurture their
calves from November to April. Ma'alaea Bay is a popular spot for whale watching in the winter.
Beachcombers will love Maui's crystal clear waters where you can enjoy snorkeling, sailing, and windsurfing.

Kauai (ka-Wa-ee) is the fourth-largest and the oldest geographically. Kauai has one of the wettest
spots on Earth, and is referred to as the "Garden Isle". It is hard to find a day on Kauai with no
clouds in the sky. All of that rain makes for one of the most beautiful islands in the Hawaiian chain.

Because of its untouched appearance, many say it is the most beautiful one. Kauai has more rivers,
streams, and waterfalls than any of the other islands. Kauai is the only island in Hawaii that does not
allow a building to be built higher than a coconut tree (four stories.) MORE

 


Molokai is known as the "Friendly Isle". Imagine, no traffic lights, traffic, buses, shopping centers,
fast-food chains, highrises, and virtually no crime. It is rural and rugged on this island and the most
like the Old Hawaii. One of the most famous regions of Molokai is the Kalaupapa Peninsula.

In the early modern history of Hawaii, Kalaupapa was designated as a leper colony. Back then there
was very little there, except isolation, which was the main reason that location was chosen. Kalaupapa
is still isolated, there's still no road to the area, just a mule trail. It is also one of the most beautiful
locations in Hawaii. The peninsula juts out into the ocean for a distance of several miles, with the back
of the peninsula being blocked from the rest of the island by some of the tallest sea cliffs in the world.



Hawaii or "The Big Island" as it is known by the locals, is the largest of the Hawaiian islands is.
It is home to Volcano National Park the only active volcano in the U.S., that is building new land every
year.

It is the youngest island in the archipelago, twice as large as any of the other islands. Most of the
Island's western side is dry and expansive, scattered with ancient fishponds and archaeological
treasures. The famous Kona Coffee is grown on the west coast, and the Iron Man Triathalon is
held on the Big Island every year. MORE
