Hawaii is the most remote island chain in the world, over 2,000 miles from the nearest landfall. Distance makes for splendid isolation – these Polynesian islands are removed from all else but one another.

Hawaii consists of eight major islands plus 124 minor islands, reefs and shoals, strung like a necklace across the Pacific for over 1,500 miles. The major islands are Oahu, Maui, Hawaii (known as Big Island), and Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe (uninhabited) and Niihau (privately owned). Each of the major islands has an identity all its own, and each is as varied and colorful as the official state flower, the hibiscus. With their collective mass of 4.1 million acres or 6,450 square miles, these islands form the fourth smallest state in the United States.

Anytime is a great time to visit the Hawaiian Islands, but it should be noted that they have only two seasons: “summer” between May and October and “winter” between October and April. The climate is subtropical, with a normal annual temperature of 77.
