Hawaii is the largest island located in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The island has 63% of the Hawaiian archipelago’s combined landmass. Sugarcane was the backbone of the island of Hawaii’s economy for more than a century which closed in 1995. Most of the island’s economy is now based on tourism, centered primarily in resort areas on the western coast of the island in the North Kona and South Kohala districts. More recently, Hawaii Island has become a focus for sustainable tourism. Diversified agriculture is also a growing sector of the economy.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
