Aloha to Hawaii – The Most Beautiful Island of the World!

There are several beautiful islands on the planet, Crete ( Greece ), Bali ( Indonesia ) and Sicily ( Italy ), but Hawaii is the most beautiful island of the world. Why? Despite the small size of the island, it is world of wonders that words can’t define but that luckily for you can be revealed live and in color place by place. Here you’ll find everything you need to enjoy your stay. From natural wonders — warm beaches, spectacular volcanoes, fantastic waterfalls, and nature sanctuaries — and unique hospitality to modern wonders — tall buildings, Olympic stadiums, transportation network — and amazing traditions — as the “lei”, the “hula dance” and the surfing. For this reason, no other island on Earth can compete with Hawaii. In addition to these selected wonders, Hawaii is a world-class resort destination with state-of-the-art accommodations. Certainly Hawaii seems to have discovered the secret of successful: Tourism.

The 47th largest state in the United States, Hawaii is the size of Northern Ireland. It is an American state of 132 islands stretching over 1,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean. The eight main islands are: Oahu, Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Kauai, and Nihau. Thanks to its natural wonders, Hawaii now has one of the highest standards of living in Oceania. Certainly Hawaii is a great example of what happens when the modern technology is applied to the economy.

Mauna Loa – A Natural Wonder of the World

Hawaii is also well-known for its famous volcanoes and craters. Haleakala — the most popular tourist spot on the island of Maui — is the world’s largest dormant crater. The crater measures about 20 miles around and is about 3,000 feet. From the top, you can see the principal islands of the archipelago. But Haleakala is not the only volcano. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is home to one of the world’s most amazing volcanoes — Mauna Loa ( 13,680 feet ). Here, too, is Kilauea volcano ( 4,009 feet ).

Like the Galapagos islands ( Ecuador ), Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro and Nepal’s Mount Everest, Mauna Loa is one of the world’s most attractive natural wonders. Mauna Loa is not violent because the eruption occur only in limited sections of the crater. This eruption is one of the most impressive spectacle on Earth. It is surrounded by fern forest.

The Most Beautiful Girls

Here you can see some of the most beautiful girls of the world. Curiously Hawaii is an ideal place for fashion photographers, film directors, and models agents. Like Venezuela, Texas, and India, Hawaii is famous for its beautiful women. Certainly it is birthplace of several spectacular girls — Nicole Kidman ( actress ), Patricia Ford ( fashion super model ), Carolyn Suzanne Sapp ( Miss America 1992 ), Tia Carrere ( singer and actress ), Renee Alway ( super model ), Kelly Ho ( actress ), Angela Perez Baraquio ( Miss America 2000 ), Agnes Nalani Lum ( top model ), Kelly Preston ( actress ), and Maggie Q ( actress ). In addition to this, Hawaii has won four Miss USA crowns and one Miss Universe title. In 1952 Kananiopepau Edsman finished second at the First Miss Universe pageant in Long Beach, California.

Astounding Oahu

In this island there are so many different types of scenery and climate. There are lots of beaches, where you can go swimming, fishing, surfing and sailing. Oahu is home to Waikiki Beach, one of the most popular beaches on Earth. It offers a mixture of wonders: world-class resorts, luxury restaurants, night clubs, and water sports facilities. Oahu is also home to Honolulu, the capital city. Honolulu – which is actually the biggest city in terms of population –is one of the world’s top destinations for businessmen. Besides all that, the island of Oahu has other fantastic places. Diamond Head, an extinct volcano, is one of the world’s most famous promontories and one of Oahu’s most popular tourist spots. But it isn’t the only wonder. The Underwater Coral Gardens of Kaneohe, in Heeia, is an amazing marine world.

There’s also lots of beautiful historic buildings where you can stop. In Laie, for example, you can visit the world’s most beautiful mormon temple. It is an architectural gem of the modern world.On the other hand, Nuuanu Pali, at the upper end of Nuuanu valley, offers an amazing view of the northeastern coast. And it was here that Kamehameha I won a battle.

What to Wear in Hawaii

Hawaiian style is best described as surfer style meets Asian pop. Given the diverse background in Hawaii where many of the locals are hapa (meaning mixed) of various ethnic Asian groups, White (haole), and Native Hawaiian one cannot avoid or help but appreciate the beautiful combination of these cultures pervasive in all things from food to fashion.

Hawaiian surf culture is definitively the mother of surf and water sports of all kinds, which are pervasively popular amongst locals. During a recent trip to Hawaii, I went swimming at one beach and encountered many locals waving hello to each other, the morning swim clearly a shared community ritual. I was most fascinated by what appeared to be ancient Asians, older in the face but incredibly youthful and healthy in their tattooed bodies. Mainland honeymooners come for the romantic sunsets, surfers come in drove, and Japanese tourists with their characteristic idiosyncratic are the foreign influences. Despite seemingly opposing backgrounds everyone in Hawaii seems perfectly happy to get down Hawaiian-style in breezy dresses, tank tops, flowers behind the ear, kukui nut leis, and surfer brands.

Dress for the weather, dress for the adventure! In Hawaii whether your adventure is laying on the beach, going for a hike, suring, deep sea fishing, sailboat-ing dress is certainly dictated by function, not just form. Even the extremely fashion-conscious will feel awkward in heels and unnecessary layers. When I was there, I wanted a wardrobe of a million shirts by Hawaiian surf brands Local Motion and Blue Hawaiian Surf!

Top tips:

Practical: Flip flops; tank tops; a breezy white dress or two for a couple days into your vacation to show off your tan(!); leave-in conditioner for those planning to spend lots of time in the water, keeping those tresses healthy.
Fashion staples: A flower behind your ear, a kukui nut or shell lei, a great tan.
Trends: I have been to Hawaii over the span of a decade and have not seen a single trend or great change in fashion over those years. It’s always a t-shirt and shorts place and always will be!

What to Pack

Casual outfit: Flip flops, tank top, a hoodie for when the sunsets, a flower behind your ear and a lei
Dressier outfit: A flower behind your ear, a lei, a breezy maxi dress in floral patterns or white
Nightlife: Wear whatever you want or feels right but no need to really pull all the stops especially those of you used to doing that in Los Angeles or New York. A sexy, tight tank top dress and dressier jewels is more than enough!
