Takeaway: This is smaller than Texas.

There are only eight main islands.
There are only eight main islands. The other is Molokai, which is home to the Molokai people.
The main islands are:
Molokai is the largest at about 21 miles across.
Molokai is the largest island in Hawaii and is about 21 miles across. It is also the only island in Hawaii that isn’t part of the state of Hawaii. It’s also one of two islands owned by the United States Navy, which makes it a military base.
Maui is the second largest island at about 45 miles across.
Maui is the second largest island at about 45 miles across. It’s also the largest island in Hawaii, and it’s considered an independent country by many people!
Its surface has several different climate zones, from lush and green areas to barren deserts. The mountains are covered in forests of bamboo trees and tropical plants like orchids and hibiscus flowers. Over 1,000 species of birds call this area home, including the Hawaiian plover, which lays its eggs on beaches where tourists can find souvenirs from their trip!
Lanai, Kahoolawe, Oahu, and Kaahupawauu are all smaller at about seven miles across each.
You might be wondering why the Hawaiian Islands are smaller than other islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The United States Navy owns the islands and is managed by the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR). The DLNR’s goal is to protect, preserve and manage these islands for their cultural heritage value and natural resources like flora & fauna. The U.S. Navy controls some parts of these lands, including Camp Hana on Oahu, that Naval Reserves use during times when they are not needed elsewhere in Hawaii or overseas.
Since these islands aren’t part of Hawaii’s state but rather military property owned by them, they don’t fall under any laws that govern how much land you can own per person, either! So really, there isn’t much room left over here unless you want to buy up all those abandoned properties from WW2-era Japanese soldiers who fought against American troops back then; otherwise, stick with what we’ve got here – beautiful beaches lined with palm trees swaying in gentle ocean breezes while birds fly overhead calling out songs that sound like waves hitting shoreline rocks along our beaches’ shores.”
Lanai is about 22 miles wide, Kahoolawe is about 10 miles, and Oahu and Kaahupawauu are closer to 5 miles and 3.5 miles wide, respectively.
Hawaii is made up of eight main islands and one smaller island. The eight main islands are:
In addition, two other uninhabited reefs lie just off the west side of Oahu. These two reefs are called Wai’anae and Makapuu, respectively, and were used for target practice during World War II by U.S. military forces stationed at Pearl Harbor when Japan attacked it on December 7th, 1941
The other Hawaiian islands are not part of the state of Hawaii but are owned by the United States Navy.
The other Hawaiian islands are not part of the state of Hawaii but are owned by the United States Navy. They include Oahu and Kauai, both large enough to be considered significant islands. Polynesians settled both in 1000 B.C., but it was in 1819 that Americans began trading with these people for goods like sandalwood and sea salt.
The largest island in this group is Nihoa Island, which has an area of only 10 square miles (25 square kilometers). It’s also home to some rare species, such as hawksbill and green sea turtles; however, only a few people live here because it’s too far from Honolulu for anyone to visit regularly (except perhaps scientists).
The Hawaiian Islands are significant, but there are minor few of them.
The Hawaiian Islands consist of eight main islands and several small ones. Two submarine islands are not part of the state of Hawaii but are owned by the United States Navy.
Section: The Hawaiian Islands are small.
Takeaway: There are only so many of them.

Section: Hawaii is not an island. It’s just a state in the United States with many islands.
Takeaway: Hawaii is not an island, but it also isn’t a state.
The Department of Defense drew up plans to turn the Hawaiian Islands into two new military bases, Camp H.M. Smith and Sand Island Military Reservation, during World War II despite the wishes of Hawaiians to avoid becoming yet another military base dotting the landscape of Iraq-Afghanistan-Iraq-American territory. Takeaway: The Hawaiian Islands were supposed to be turned into military bases during World War II because it would be “Korea.” This was supposed to make America’s enemies cower in fear and get us more oil for our economy (er, the United States economy). Those plans were abandoned as soon as Vietnam ended, but they may be revisited to help with Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. I’m just saying…
Section: No one lives there anymore. . . well, almost no one anyway . . . like how we’re all going to die soon enough! :/ Takeaway: People tend to forget about that when they talk about something else entirely (like being attacked by terrorists), but we don’t have anyone living on those islands anymore (unless you count some U.H. students who live on Maui or some people who live in government housing on Oahu). Section 2 (of 6): We don’t do anything there anymore either after they got tossed out of control by loony conservatives who wanted small government policies and so decided that since federal money can only go towards things that benefit us at least somewhat, then we needed no longer need
