Molokai is the most Hawaiian island and it is what Kauai used to be some 60 years ago: tranquil and undisturbed in its natural beauty; there are two highways: one from north east to south east; another one from east to west. There are 2 or 3 car companies near the airport and one in Kaunakakai.
There are a few eateries,, a hotel, two grocery stores, one gas station, a local museum, a farmers market, fishponds and a paradise for the outdoors, pristine rainforests with waterfalls, finest sand beaches, hiking, no traffic lights (!!!) and so much more.
Visit Molokai's finest beaches -- Papohaku, Kepuhi and Kawakiu, which are some of the very best sand beaches of Hawaii; Eat at Kualapuu Cookhouse where baby back ribs with homemade guava-barbecue sauce are just a mere hint of the offerings, come for the Luau at the Molokai Hotel while watching the sunset.
Molokai Shores is a spectacular beach resort in Molokai, Hawaii blending in perfectly with nature around it. My condo is on the 2nd floor with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, a kitchen and living room, fully furnished with all amenities and a lanai opening to the ocean. The resort offers housekeeping services, laundry facility and hair dresser;
There is a gated community pool right near the ocean, BBQ, picnic tables, tennis and kayaking. You have marvelous views to the island of Lanai, just across the channel and to the left you’ll see the island of Maui.
Visit the Lepra colony in Kalaupapa either on mule, by helicopter, or hiking, absorb the view of the majestic Na Pali, stop at the chapel dedicated to Father Damien, or take short flights to the other islands, become part of organized trips for fishing and snorkeling, bicycling all over the island, explore the old fishponds where fish were raised only for the high Alii. And watch the most exquisite, breathtaking sunsets from the lanai during the fall months, observe wales as they migrate from Alaska during February to April. Don’t forget to stop by the coffee plantation and the macadamia nut plantation, indulge in chocolate shave ice – the best of which you will get at the gas station.
Molokai, a special place with so much history, adventure, tranquility and .... the fastest way to slow down.
