Geographically located in the Polynesian subregion of Oceania, Hawaii is in fact USA's most recent state and comprises hundreds of islands, of which the eight main ones are Molokaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Niʻihau, Maui, Kauaʻi, LānaʻI, Hawaiʻi (the largest in terms of area, also known as Big Island) and Oahu (or Oʻahu), where the largest Hawaiian city and capital, Honolulu, is located. Due to its Central Pacific location, Hawaiian traditions are a combination of indigenous, Asian and North American cultures. Its warm tropical climate, with summer temperatures reaching 31ºC and winter temperatures around 28ºC, presents only two seasons (dry between May and October, and wet from October to April).
This volcanic archipelago is very popular for its natural beauty, offering amazing green lush tropical landscapes, breathtaking waterfalls and tropical beaches, such as Waikiki Beach. Live HD cameras in Hawaii will take you to this prime destination for surfers, who look for the perfect wave in the waters of Waimea Bay and Turtle Bay. The bravest choose to face the huge waves of the Pipeline reef break.
