About Island of hawaii

Island of Hawaii, which is the biggest island of the Hawaii province and situated within the borders of the United States of America, is located in the southeast of the province. The island, which is also known as Big Island or Hawai’i Island, is in the chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. Island of Hawaii covering an area of 10,430 square kilometers in total is the biggest island of the United States of America and the third biggest island of the Polynesia region in terms of its surface area. Island of Hawaii or Hawai’i which has a population of about 200 thousand people takes its name from the Polynesian explorer Hawai’iloa. Mauna Kea is the world's tallest mountain, taller than even Mount Everest, which is known as the tallest mountain of the world, since the base of Mount Everest is above sea level. Island of Hawaii consists of five different shield volcanoes in total: Kohala, Mauna Kea, Hualalai (active volcano), Mauna Loa (active) and Kilauea (active). You can see some of these active and passive volcanoes if you visit Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Since Mauna Loa and Kilauea are active volcanoes, the surface area of Island of Hawaii expands every year. It is still possible to see the geological remains in south and west slopes of Mauna Loa. Approximately 35 kilometers south of Hawaii, there is a volcano known as Lō'ihi located under the sea. You can see this volcano, which is about 980 meters below the ocean surface, by diving in company with professional teams. The Ka Lae point, which is accepted as the southernmost of the United States, is located on the Island of Hawaii.

The Valley of the Kings located near Waipio and the Gulf of Kealakekua, which is a snorkeling paradise, are among the places to visit.
