The biggest island in Hawaii is NOT called Honolulu.Honolulu is the State Capitol of Hawaii. The biggest island is called Hawaii, but most people call it the Big Island.

Honolulu is the name of a city (and its county) on the island of Oahu. Oahu is much smaller that The Big Island. Somewhat confusingly, the biggest island in the State of Hawaii is officially called The Island of Hawaii. To avoid confusion it is also named The Big Island. This "biggest island" is between six and seven times bigger than the island of Oahu, which contains Honolulu.

Honolulu is the State Capital (not Capitol) of Hawaii.
