All the volcanoes are dormant except for two on the Big Island, Mauna Loa and Kilauea, part of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. ) A volcanic core gives each island a breathtakingly rugged mountainous heart. Most of the island development is at sea level, along the sunny coastal fringe of each island. Thanks to Hawaii’s proximity to the equator, those coastal areas experience near-perfect weather year-round: temperatures in the high 70s or low 80s, clear skies, and gentle trade winds. Introducing the Hawaiian Islands The eight main islands are Oahu (oh-WA-hoo), the hub of the Hawaii island chain, and the “neighbor” islands: Maui (MOW-ee); Hawaii, or the Big Island, as it’s commonly called; Kauai (ka-WAH-ee); Molokai (mo-lo-k-EYE); Lanai (la-NAH-ee); Niihau (nee-EE-how); and Kahoolawe (ka-ho-ho-LA-vay).

The beautiful shapes and hues of Hawaii’s bold fauna have woven their way into the island’s favorite fabrics, too. Boldly hued tropical barkcloths — nubby cotton fabrics that wear well and say “Old Hawaii” with their large-leafed tropical and storytelling patterns — are famously suited to the furnishings of the islands. Vintage fabrics can often be found at two delightful Kauai shops, Bambulei and Yellowfish Trading Company; if you want newly woven fabrics on the bolt, you’ll find a sea of possibilities at Vicky’s, also on Kauai (see Chapter 18).

But the new industry didn’t stick until transportation improved, and the sugar industry became too expensive to support. In 1901, W. C. Peacock built the elegant Moana Hotel (now the Sheraton Moana Surfrider) on Waikiki Beach. After a concentrated marketing effort in San Francisco, 2,000 tourists came to Waikiki in its first big tourism year, 1903. Tourism came by steamship; the sailing took almost five days. By 1936, visitors could fly to Honolulu from San Francisco on the Hawaii Clipper, a seven-passenger Pan American plane; the flight took 21 hours, 33 minutes.
