Hawaii is America’s most tropical state and one of its most popular vacation and wedding destinations. The state is an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean with rainforests, offshore reefs, and active volcanoes. Hawaii became a state in 1959 and has a fascinating history and Polynesian heritage.

The Big Island has more than 250 miles (402 km) of coastline with white, black, and green sand beaches. The island is twice as big as any of the other islands and is the site of one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea.

Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molakaʻi, Lānaʻi and Maui are other Hawaiian islands. Oʻahu is the site of the state capital of Honolulu and is home to a majority of the state’s population. The islands are full of beautiful coastlines, beaches, mountains, rain forests, and waterfalls. Water sports and golf are favorite activities.

Hawaii real estate includes small beach bungalows, large oceanfront estates, golf course communities, high-rise condominiums, and more. Settings include beach, urban, and rural areas.
