The main Hawaiian Islands lie in a Northwest to Southeast line between 23N and 19N latitude and 160Wto 155W longitude. These are large volcanic islands that rise out of an ocean floor that averages 2.5 miles in depth. One of the smaller islands, Molokai, with a 38-mile long coastline on either shore stretches further than the entire BVI chain of islands but has only a population of 6,000 residents, likewise, the island of Lanai which would also take up nearly all the cruising space of the BVI has a population of 2,500.
So what do we have here but nothing less than miles and miles of uninhabited coastlines filled with empty beaches, wilderness coastlines, and secluded anchorages. Other islands such as Oahu and Maui offer anchorages where you can go out at night, eat at shore side restaurants in sight of your boat, some are even literally beachside and still sail in areas with incredible scenery, with an abundance of sea life everywhere.
