Oahu island, known as “The Gathering Place”, or the Main Island. It is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands. The island is home to about 976,199 people (approximately 72% of the resident population of the state, with approximately 81% of those living on the “city” side of the island). Honolulu International Airport is located here. The state capital, Honolulu, is on Oahu’s southeast coast. Including small close-in offshore islands such as Ford Island, Sand Island and the islands in Kaneohe Bay and off the eastern (windward) coast, it has a total land area of 596.7 square miles, making it the 20th largest island in the United States. In the greatest dimension, this volcanic island is 44 miles long and 30 miles wide. The island is the result of two separate shield volcanoes: Waianae and Koolau, with a broad “valley” or saddle between them. The highest point is Kaala in the Waianae Range, rising to 4,003 feet above sea level. Well known physical features on Oahu include Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, Kaneohe Bay, Kailua Bay and North Shore.
