Your Pacific Paradise. Aloha! Hawai'i.

Hawaii, everyone first thinks of it as the island of paradise and it is! The warmth of the islands invites you to start off by taking in a deep breathe of the fresh air, admire the cascading waterfalls, crystal clear waters, lush mountains, beautiful valleys and relax on its sandy shores.

Hawaii is a place that makes it hard on one to decide what to do first, surfing, hiking, cliff diving, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, mountain climbing, ravishing beautiful tropical flowers and plants, attending a luau, shopping, eating, drinking, dancing and just kicking back.

Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian islands where you will find the city of Honolulu, tourist filled Waikiki strip and the sleepy beach town of Hale'iwa dotted with famed surfing spots Sunset Beach and Waimea Beach.

Kauai, also known as the Garden Isle is home to Mount Wai'ale'ale, the wettest spot on earth. Koke'e mountains surrounds you with lush swamps and rare birds, dense rainforests of Ha'ena awaits you, while the sunny beaches and clear skies in Po'ipu calls on you to feel the sand between your toes.

Maui is knows as the Valley Isle and the valleys on this island where created by the dormant volcano, Haleakala. Maui's major resort area is Lahaina a historic whaling town, but don't forget about Hana to experience a black sand beach.

Big Island is the place to see erupting volcanoes, with two of the five volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, still active. The volcanoes are lined along the west side, Kona, resulting in the dry landscape, while the east side lies the town of Hilo is wet and lush.

Lanai and Molokai, two smaller islands that should not be neglected. Lanai is better know for offering two five-star resorts - the Manele Bay Hotel and the Lodge at Ko'ele. Molokai you can bask on Hawaii's longest white sand.

A little extra info for those of you who would like to get married in Hawaii:

Travelers love the swaying palms that are often the background found in photos taken by Lucy Pemoni. Lucy is a photographer who covers Hawaii for several major news services. She also photographs weddings for both local residents and visitors who have brought their wedding parties to Hawaii. Taking time is what Lucy does best, it can be talking to a celebrity to get just the right image, or a helping a bride overcome her nerves. She suggests these books on Wedding planning: Book 1, Book 2. Lucy is originally from the New York City area and has worked for papers like the New York Times.

But now her photos of Hawaii are seen on a daily basis in newspapers around the world. She covers spot news, sports, tourism and military news. If your planning to come to the Islands to get married call Lucy. For details information visit the Lucy Pemoni, Hawaii Photographer website: Diamond Head Photography.

Hawaii is an island to return to again and again. Hawaii is all about the "spirit of Aloha".

Honolulu History

Honolulu, HI, United StatesThe second half of the 19th century did not prove very favorable for Honolulu (rather, for Hawaii as a whole) politically, although it continued to develop in other areas. The century ended with the abolition of the Hawaiian Monarchy (1893) and eventual annexation of Hawaii by the United States (1898) following a short period when it was an independent republic. (Hawaii was as a US-territory and remained so for 60 years). Honolulu History – 20th Century to Present Times Honolulu’s history in the 20th century was quite interesting – the US-takeover proved quite positive for Honolulu becoming an important US military-base.
