Congratulations! You’ve just found the best moving company in the state of Hawaii!
You won’t be disappointed with your move to Hawaii. The paradise that is the Hawaiian Islands was formed by millions of years of volcanic activity that is continuing to shape the islands today. The main islands, Hawaiʻi, Maui, Kahoʻolawe, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, and Niʻihau, are only eight of the hundreds of islands that make up this state, spanning 1,500 miles. Hawaii has an abundance of sandy beaches, year-round tropical weather, trade winds, rainbows, waterfalls, diverse vegetation and wildlife, and breathtaking landscapes. With a name roughly translating from the Polynesian word for “homeland,” these Pacific islands have attracted people from all over the world.
The state of Hawaii has many islands with different atmospheres for you to choose from as your new home. The island of Hawaii is often referred to as “The Big Island,” being larger than all the other islands combined. Here you will find the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and there are opportunities to take tours of active volcanoes. Because of the volcanic lava rocks, it is not uncommon to find black sand beaches on this island. Other beaches include Hapuna Beach, which is often regarded as the beast beach in the United States. The Kona district is famous for its coffee, and the Big Island is also known for astronomy, due to the lack of light pollution and excellent atmospheric clarity.
Across the Alenuihaha Channel, Maui is visible from the Big Island because of Haleakala Volcano; however, the last volcanic eruption on the island of Maui was over 200 years ago. Due to the mountains and valleys, Maui has defined sub-regions with differing climates. This island has a large rainforest region and showers are common, but are usually over quickly. Maui is the preferred island for whale watchers, specifically the Humpback whale whose numbers have been increasing in recent years.
Oahu is a popular destination for newcomers, with the state’s capital of Honolulu. In the south, you will find Pearl Harbor, Waikiki Beach, and the highly recognizable profile of Diamond Head, an inactive volcano turned popular hiking spot. On the North Shore, world famous pipelines are the site for international surf competitions in December. Nearby is the town of Haleiwa, a delightful little surf town with charming eateries and shops. The highway between the north side and south side of the island is very scenic with lush green mountains to one side and deep blue ocean on the other. Contact Allied today, and we will help you get settled no matter which island you’re moving to.
