Hawaii Vacation Rentals Offer Tropical Getaways

Hawaii is one of the most unusual of the states in the Union. Located in the Pacific Ocean in the region traditionally referred to as Polynesia, Hawaii consists of eight main islands and hundreds of smaller ones scattered across more than a thousand miles of sea. The two most visited islands in Hawaii are Oahu and the "Big Island, whose formal name is the same as the name of the state.

Holiday homes in Hawaii offer access to outstanding recreational opportunities including surfing, hiking through the tropical rainforest, and scuba diving, and snorkeling in the clear waters offshore. The capital of the state is Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu, made famous in American history when the natural bay of Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japan. Today, tourists can visit the USS Arizona Memorial and look down into the waters at a battleship that was too damaged to be raised.

The National Park Service administers three national historic parks in Hawaii. One is on the island of Molokai where Father Damien ministered to natives and others suffering from Hansen's disease. For his sacrificial service, this Catholic priest was later declared to be the patron saint of Hawaii. Besides history, a large attraction for tourists on Hawaii is the opportunity to view live volcanoes and learn about the geologic features formed over eons by the activity of those same volcanoes. Lava tubes and lava flows are some of the most visited such features.

Kauai - the Garden Island

Posted by Stacey Bodnaruk on Wednesday, February 25, 2009
With white sand beaches, coconut lined coasts, tropical rain forests, misty canyons, and the majestic Na Pali Coast it's hard to imagine a place on earth more beautiful than Kauai. Known as "the Garden Island", the tropical paradise of Kauai lies amidst the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu. Kauai is 33 x 25 miles and encompasses roughly 550 miles. It is the oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands. Lihue is the county seat and location of the Kauai Airport. Population is almost 60,000 residents and the highest point is Kawaikiki Peak at 5,243 ft above sea level. Born over 5.5 millions years ago, Kaua‘i is the oldest of Hawai‘i's major islands. The town of Waimea was the site of the first Hawai‘i landing by Captain James Cook in 1778. Kauai has been a host to Hollywood movies including Jurrasic Park, South Pacific and Raiders of the lost Ark, just to name a few.
