Molokai

– Hawaii –

Molokai is similar to Lanai in a lot of ways, but this Hawaiian gem is an island all its own. Practically untouched by humanity, it’s 38 miles long and 10 miles wide. It’s known for its high cliffs near the ocean at 3,900 feet, and a 28 mile reef along the southern coast. But get this, it also has something pretty cool at its Hoolehua Post Office. They actually have coconuts instead of post cards. So all you have to do is grab one, write on it, and send it off to somebody back home. Can you imagine the look on their faces when it arrives?

About Molokai


Imagine the Hawaii of the past. Unspoiled country and untouched beaches. No skyscrapers or stoplights. The chance to truly live as the locals do. That’s Molokai today.

Hawaii’s fifth-largest island, Molokai is only 38 miles long and 10 miles across at its widest point. Molokai is home to the highest sea cliffs in the world along its northeast coast (3,600-3,900 feet) and Hawaii’s longest continuous fringing reef (28 miles) off Molokai’s southern coast. On foot, by bike or by 4-wheel drive, this is an island of outdoor adventure. Take the road less traveled and get red dirt in your shoes whether you’re hiking along the 1,700 foot cliffs leading to Kalaupapa National Historical Park or discovering Papohaku Beach, one of Hawaii’s biggest white sand beaches.
