Hawaii a heaven of scenic beauty

When we refer to a state we know that it is in the country but when it comes to Hawaii it’s slightly different as even it’s not in America it’s a state in United States of America. It is the last ever state to join the Union as the 50th state on august 21st 1959. Since then it has grown into one of the leading tourist destinations in the world. That is because the state is located in Oceania comprising islands all over with its great scenic beaches.


In Polynesia it is the north most island group. This state comprises a lot of islands spread over almost 2500kms in Pacific Ocean and are formed by a volcanic action at undersea magma source and that is known as hot spot of Hawaii. This action is being processed since then and continuously forming new islands and yet the hot spot is still at the same place. As the hot spot is still active the volcano’s present are at southern part and even the recently formed one the lo-hi sea mount is also located to south coast of Hawaiian.

It is considered as having the third as it has the highest point when considered among the islands. These islands have been disastrous back in history killing thousands due to its volcanic eruptions and the erosions that occurred. But yet again due to these erosion and eruption the procedures have left the island with many more geographical features. As an island state and being in pacific, the climate is always arid and very tropical.

Due to this type of climate it is being less populated and it shelters many endangered species and it is at verge of losing its endemic species. It has a population of almost 1.42 million in numbers by the latest report and also found increase in population by just 4.3%. And Oahu is the most populated among them. Most of the population in state are either military setups or tourists.

Highlights of Hawaii

When the kings used to wage wars and it was not for Hawaiian Islands as all the islands were grouped and ruled by a single ruler king Kamehameha the great. He also established a house of Kamehameha and the dynasty reigned from 1790s to 1820 and then it was taken over by his son Kamehameha.

Later the American Christian missionaries took a turn towards these grouped islands and started converting the Hawaiian regional people to Christianity with its influence and finally the first Christian king to the kingdom was Kamehameha.

Many Missionaries formed colonies in Kalaupapa as it was made in 1866. From then on it came a long way. Honolulu being the capital city of Hawaii has one of the renowned university Chaminade, other than that there are Hawaii Pacific University, Bringham Young University, way lands Baptist University, and Saint Stephen Diocesan Center etc. are some important points.


Hawaii not only acts as a tourist destination, but it also plays a major role in United States Military installations and administration services. It shelters one of the best military installations in the world. One among them is Schofield barracks, which were formed for the defence purposes of pearl harbour and all the Islands of Hawaii.

It was formed in 1908 and it is serving enormously since then, comprising 25th infantry division and also called as tropic lightning division and also plays as head quarters of command in Hawaii for United states of America. It also shelters many facilities of military as Bellows Air Force station in Waimanalo, Hickam Air Force Base and Fort Derussy and Fort Shafter Army bases in Honolulu, Pohakula army training center, Trilper Army Medical Center, Wheeler Army Airfield, Station Maui in Wailuku, USCG ISC coast guard in Honolulu, and MCB Hawaii Marine Corps Base in Kaneohe etc. There are many more army installations settled in Hawaii for the prosperity and defensive strategy to guard United States.
