This is the real Hawaii. Known for remaining true to its island roots, Molokai is teeming with uncrowded outdoor activities, unspoiled nature, and a friendly, small town lifestyle.
Papohaku Beach, Molokai’s largest sandy beach, sprawls with three miles of interrupted soft sandy shoreline. Explore the sacred Halawa Valley, where you’ll find ancient Polynesian places of worship throughout the valley, as well as towering waterfalls, stunning vistas, and lush landscapes.
