Hawaii is the only U.S. state made up of islands. The eight main islands of Hawaii are: Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii, Niihaw and Kahooolawe. The Hawaiian archipelago includes more than 130 points of land, stretching over 1600 miles.

The island of Hawaii is the largest island of the archipelago and is called, “The Big Island,” to avoid confusion with the state of Hawaii as a whole.

Of the primary islands, Kauai is the oldest island, with lush rainforests and worn sea cliffs.

Hawaii’s Big Island is the youngest island, with lava landscapes and the Kilauea Volcano, which still erupts.

Hawaii’s time zone is 5 hours behind Eastern Standard Time (EST) on the U.S. mainland. Hawaii does not observe Daylight Savings Time, so an extra hour should be added during the months of the year when others use Daylight Saving Time.

It is always a good time to visit Hawaii. The average temperature is 76°-85° F. Summer (April-November) is warmer and winter (December-March) is cooler.

The peak whale-watching months are January through April. The peak surfing months on Hawaii’s north shores are November through February.

Hawaii is the only U.S. state that grows coffee.

Hawaii has a vibrant culture with influences from both North American and Asia.

Hawaii has over 1 million permanent residents. The capital, Honolulu, is on the island of Oahu. Hawaii’s major airport–Honolulu International Airport–is also on Oahu.

According to a Huffington Post article (citing a Gallop Poll), 8 states in the USA have a lower percentage of Christians in their populations than does Hawaii (36,103 Christian adherents per 100,000 persons).
