While many of Hawaii's beach-gilded islands are known for their luxury hotels and plentiful amenities, the petite community of Ualapue offers a low-key escape. Situated on the southeastern shore of Molokai, it's known for its peaceful shoreline, historic heiaus and unspoiled backdrop of green hills, draped in lush, tropical vegetation. While there are plenty of Ualapue vacation rentals to choose from and amenities in nearby Kaunakakai, you won't find hulking hotels or shopping malls here. That's what makes it unique.

Things to do

Discover Hawaiian heritage in Ualapue

Looking for Hawaiian heritage? Ualapue is home to a fascinating pre-contact archaeological site, which has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. The site is the 2nd largest of its kind in Hawaii and consists of 6 heiaus, native Hawaiian temples, the largest of which is Ili'ili'opae. Featuring 4 tiers that rise to form a striking plateau, it is 287 feet tall and is still considered a sacred site. According to local legend, it was built during a single night using boulders that were passed from person-to-person from the Wailau Valley, on the island's north shore.


Take it easy in Ualapue

Those who opt for a Ualapue vacation rental tend to be seeking a peaceful getaway. Here, it's all about strolling the countryside, unwinding on the beach and paddling in the glittering waters of the Pacific Ocean. For everything else, the island's largest town, Kaunakakai, can be found just 20 minutes to the west, along Hawaii State Route 420. The sleepy Hawaiian town is known for its local vibe and features a small clutch of stores and restaurants, as well as the Hotel Molokai, the community's go-to entertainment spot. For sun, sea and sand, the town's palm-studded Coconut Grove Beach is the perfect spot to relax.


Year-round sun in Ualapue

Molokai doesn't scrimp on the sunshine, giving the island average year-round temperatures of around 75 degrees. Spring, summer and fall temperatures can reach 85 degrees, but are often tempered by the pleasant trade winds, dropping down to the 70s during evenings.
