HAWAII

Hanauma is a marine embayment formed within a tuff ring and located along the southeast coast of the Island of O’ahu in the Hawaii Islands. Hanauma is one of the most popular tourist destinatons on the Islands and has suffered somewhat from overuse (at one time accommodating over three million visitors per year). In the year of 1956 , dynamite was used to clear portions of the reef to make room for a telephone cable linking Hawaii to the west coast of the US. The word hana means bay in Hawaiian Language.

Hawaii is the 50th state and one of the most recent states to join the U.S. Hawaii gained admission to the united states on August 21, 1959. People call Hawaii the Aloha state (official), Paradise, The Islands of Aloha. Hawaii is the 8th smallest, the least populous, but the 13th –most densely populated of the fifty U.S. states. Hawaii is the only U.S state located in Oceania and the only one made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost islands group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.
