Hawaii is the only US state located in Oceania, the only US state located outside of North America, and the only one that consists entirely of islands. This is the northernmost group of islands in Polynesia, occupying most of the islands in the central Pacific Ocean.
The Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic activity which began in an underwater magma source called the Hawaiian hotspot. This process continues to build the island.Tectonic plates beneath most of the Pacific Ocean continue to move northwest and the hotspots remain silent, slowly creating new volcanic mountains. Because of the location of the hotspot, all active volcanoes are currently located in the southern part of the Island of Hawaii. The newest volcano, Lōʻihi Seamount, is located on the south coast of the island of Hawaii. Because of the volcano activities, the Hawaiian archipelago has impressive geological features that can attract many tourists as well as world volcano experts. The island of Hawaii has the second highest point among islands in the world.
