The islands of Hawaii may have been named by Hawaii Loa, their legendary discoverer, or Hawaii may be based on "Owhyhee", the native word for homeland. Hawaii is a tropical paradise destination for tourists from all over the world, and is home to Mount Waialeale, fabled as the wettest place on Earth. The moist climate plus Hawaii's geographic and reproductive isolation, means that many of the flowering plants found in Hawaii today do not grow naturally anywhere else on Earth. Flora aside, Hawaii is a land of smoking volcanoes, black sand volcanic beaches, and majestic vistas. The largest island of Hawaii continues to grow in size due to active volcanoes such as Kilauea, and the island of Molokai features the world's tallest sea cliffs, rising more than 2,000 feet from the water's edge. The sport of surfing was introduced to the world by Duke Kahanamoku during the early 20th century; surfing is the signature sport of the Hawaiian islands.
