Hawaii - a true paradise

The fresh, floral air energizes you. The warm, tranquil waters refresh you. The breathtaking, natural beauty renews you. Hawaii, one of the top summer destinations, in fact I consider it as the most beautiful place on earth.The Island of Hawaiʻi, also called the Big Island or Hawaiʻi Island, is a volcanic island in the U.S. State of Hawaiʻi in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,432 km²), it is the largest island in the United States and larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined.Hawaiʻi is said to have been named for Hawaiʻiloa, the legendary Polynesian navigator who first discovered it. However, other accounts attribute the name to the legendary land or realm of Hawaiki, a place from which the Polynesians originated (see also Manua), the place where they go in the afterlife, the realm of the gods.The Island of Hawaiʻi is administered as the County of Hawaiʻi. The county seat is Hilo. It is estimated that as of the year 2003, the island had a resident population of 158,400.

Look around. There’s no place on earth like Hawaii.

Whether you’re a new visitor or returning, the six unique islands offer distinct experiences that will entice any traveler.

Plenty of activities can be experience during one's stay. This spectacularly oceanfront is a great place to whale, dolphin & turtle watch, or fish from the oceanfront bluff. If you feel like sharing the ocean with these sea-creature, you can go snorkeling and swimming that are extremely fabulous here. To really experience all that Hawaii offers, you should consider renting a car. Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Islands. Shuttles, taxis, and public transport are available on most islands. Tours include volcano tour, pearl harbor tour, mingling with the natives in the polynesian cultural cent er, or go with the combo package where you can jet-ski. If you feel like being alone with nature, surfing, sun bathing and a walk in the sea shore are the best thing.
