The Hawaiian Islands

The Hawaiian Islands are one of the most geographically isolated places on Earth — over 2,400 miles and nearly 4,000 kilometers to the closest landmass, which is California, USA. Born of a volcanic hotspot rising from the sea floor of the Pacific Ocean, the Hawaiian archipelago formed nearly 75 million years ago, with the eldest islands of the chain long since eroded and submerged beneath the sea's surface to the northwest and the youngest of the islands still forming beneath the sea's surface to the southeast.
