Holiday in Hawaii #13
The island of Oahu was formed by two massive volcanoes, Wai’anae and Ko’olau. The mountains that remain rise out of the sea, in some places as sheer, stony cliffs while elsewhere the slope is more gentle.
From Yokohama Bay on the dry leeward side of the island,
to the white sands of Makapu’u Beach on the island’s south east coast, the landscape is spectacular.
Viewed from Diamond Head Lookout, the city of Honolulu spreads across the coastal plain and up into the valleys and ridges of the mountains.
