Hawaii Beach Research Paper

As I stepped foot out of the stuffy plane I was immediately approached by the bright, blinding and dazzling beams projected from the sun along with gentle cool breeze that blew "Whoosh." As I inhaled the deep essence of the salty air in disbelief I couldn't believe it. I have landed in Hawaii.
As a tourist, I was greeted with a Hawaiian garland which is referred to as "Lei" which projected out beautifully vibrant colors which also complimented the floral shirt I wore. Finally reaching to claim my luggage, I gazed upon a sea of people in which you can hear the constant chattering from all around. As I exited the airport, I was met again by the bully called the Sun. As the Hawaiian sun beat down on my skin, warming and sun-bathing my arms and legs in

As I waltzed on the beach, squishing down the hot buttery-yellow sand that gave off the hot sensation of a burning grill sizzling my feet, I was immediately taken by the scent of freshly sliced fruits and freshly picked flowers. As you move along, brightly colored fruit stalls filled the sidewalks from which fresh fruit is cut. From a fruit stand, the scent travelled all across the beach with the help of the cool breeze which allowed the scent to fill the air. With my eyes closed, I breathed in the ocean bliss that paraded the beach. As I turn towards the sea, I was amazed. It was a deep blue in some areas but in others a glistening turquoise green. As I made my way towards the water as it laps over each time it reaches to the shore, overhead I heard the frantic screech of seagulls like a sharp knife dragged along a glass. As you dive into the deep blue ocean you can feel and taste the chilly, cool and refreshing water surrounding your body as chills ran down my back. Further from the beach there was a volcano that looked like a giant firework to

    It is summer time, in the middle of June. The smell of the salty air, cool breeze of the gulf coast is enough to make my heart flutter. As I look out into the beautiful clear blue sky, I see it filled with kites of many colors, shapes and sizes. I look off in the distance and come upon a working shrimp boat with its net dragging behind capturing the daily catch, with seagulls flying around waiting for an easy meal. Standing there you can’t help but hear the rolling wave’s crash at the water’s edge.…

    Hawaii attracts many tourists per year because of its history, geography, and entertainment. This state is known for its many islands, volcanoes, and climate as well. When I think about Hawaii all I imagine is standing on the beach overlooking the ocean getting hit with the nice warm breeze hearing laughter and seeing smiles. Since “Hawaii is one of the most isolated places on Earth” it makes vacationing there completely stress and worry free, because you are far away from home and nothing on your mind but having a great vacation (Neri p.4).…

    About a year ago, myself and a couple friends took a semester off school, went to South Africa for a vacation and for a chance to see a different part of the world. We set out for four months; three of those months we spent traveling up and down the garden route and the east coast and midway through our trip, we stopped at a hostel called, “Coffee Shack.” It was very laid back and relaxing hostel; there were many people there every night and the ocean was so close to the tepee we were living in, we were practically swimming. Every morning we would wake up to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and the enormous African sun that hovered over our heads.…

    I ran outside to find one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen. The long stretch of sand was pure white and sparkled in the sun as if it had glitter mixed in with it. It almost looked like snow. The sand was hot on my feet as I walked down the beach to the water. I could hear it squeak a little with every foot step. As I…

    As you approach the seaside, you are captivated by its beauty. The breathtaking panoramic view is enough to make your knees go weak. The bright, round sun blinds you as it appears rising and climbing like a yellow lemon on the horizon. The radiant rays of the neon sun reflect off of the untouched white sand that covers the ground as far as the eye can perceive. These perfectly placed grains of sand shine like flawlessly polished diamonds. Emerging from the pale sand are enormous jagged, kaki colored palm tree trunks that stand as tall as skyscrapers. Oversized, razor-sharp, emerald leaves hang from the tops while swaying back and forth in the light ocean breeze. The ocean water sparkles and glitters playfully like twinkling stars flickering in the night sky. The sights alone are enough to soften your soul with tranquility.…

    The waves of the beaches that I observed were all not very big at the time of my observation. The waves were also not going very fast due to the time that I observed at. The weather at the time was cloudy, and I did not see many people at the beaches because it is early in the morning. I also noticed that some of the beaches in Hawaii have rocks near them, while some are surrounded by different types of sand colors. The colors of the waters at different beaches are also different, some are in lighter colors, while the other ones in darker colors.…

    The sand scorched our feet like steaks on a fiery grill. I had brought the Rock along to join me for a surfing lesson. We snatched our wetsuits and our boards and hit the waves. The ocean water sends a chilling sensation through my body. The polar water feels like a steamy shower after a long day, calming and relaxing. The waves are monstrous and intimidating, however, I seem to ride them effortlessly like I had done it a million times before. I dash past the Rock and under a curling wave. In the waves there are vividly colored fish swimming in schools. The water is so translucent that one can easily see the ocean floor, and the coral and seaweed that lay on…

    As I stroll along I can feel the soft smooth sand beneath my feet. I am taken in by the calming atmosphere that encircles me. I close my eyes, letting myself absorb the blistering rays of the sun on a scorching summer day. I am comforted by the sounds of the ocean; the rhythmic pounding of the waves suppressing all of my worries. I look into the cloudless blue sky and see the perfection of life. I often want to be like a seagull, drifting endlessly in the wind without a care in the world. As I sit in my chair I can see all the sights of summer. Children building sandcastles along the ocean’s edge, to my right I observe an elderly couple indulged in a good book. I am soon at the point where my skin can no longer stand the ruthless heat of the blazing summer sun. I run as fast as my feet can carry me toward what my body sees as a endless pool of crystal blue water. I dive into the crashing waves head first. The shock of the frigid water takes my breath away leaving me momentarily stunned. However I quickly recover as my body adjusts to the cold water. Floating peacefully among the waves, I am unaware of the approaching waves that are soon to break over me. Crash! A outrageous wave has just taken me over. Its force knocks me to the sandy bottom of the ocean. I am rejuvenated and awakened as I am carried back to the shore. Exhausted, I return to my peaceful spot on the beach. I quickly find myself once again blazing under the warmth of the summer sun.…

I stood on the edge of this breathtaking tropical island and saw water so blue, that it more resembled liquid sapphire.
