Hawaii has seven islands. They are an archipelago of inlets, volcanic activity, atolls, and seamounts in the area of the North Pacific Ocean. The islands are known for their beauty and make up a total of 1500 miles between them. Visitors come from near and far to take part in their dances, eat of the delicious food, see the historical sights, and enjoy the beach, fishing, and to surf the waves.
The islanders are known for being very accomodating to tourists. Hawaii was the place of an attack in World War 1, Pearl Harbor, so that is an area that is widely visited for the historical impact. There is a seamount chain that is intriguing because it is a group of underwater mountains that string along around the islands under the Pacific Ocean. The weather is generally wonderful so people flock in to the islands year round. Those who visit usually say they would love to go back because it is difficult to experience all Hawaii has to offer in just one visit.
There are eight main islands in Hawaii and quite a number of little ones, some just an atoll. The main island of Hawaii allows a view of lava flowing into the sea. It is often called the Orchid isle, rather than its correct name of Hawaii, and contains wonderful botanical gardens. the second largest island is Mauna Kea, which measures 727 miles around it. All the islands are on an oceanic fault, so volcanoes are frequent.
