Tropical Beach Pictures and hawaii vacation ideas

This page features stunning tropical beach pictures from Hawaii. Also shown is a free printable map of the Hawaiian Islands.

The Hawaii island map shown below illustrates the the main part of the state of Hawaii, which is a cluster of dozens of small, volcanic islands thousands of miles southwest of the mainland United States.

Hawaii's main (largest) islands are called Ni'ihau, Kaua'i, O'ahu, Moloka'i, Lâna'i, Kaho'olawe, Maui, and Hawai'i. For some reason, Hawaiian names are sprinkled with apostrophes.

The island of Hawai'i is the state's largest island, and is better known simply as the "Big Island," in order to distinguish it by name from the state itself.

The capital of the state of Hawaii is Honolulu, a city with a population of about 1.2 million, located on the island of O'ahu.

Hawaii was the 50th and most recent U.S. state to join the USA.
