Welcome to Molokai, The Most Hawaiian Island. Often called “The Friendly Island” because the aloha spirit flourishes here.
If you’re looking for the real Hawai’i, this is it.
If you’re looking for old Hawai’i, this is it.
If you’re looking for breathtaking natural beauty, rain forests or deserted beaches, this is it.
If you’re looking for glitz and glamour, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
This is an honest look at an island lost in time.
An island where no building is taller than a palm tree.
Where aloha is not just a word, it’s a way of life.
Where the longest white sand beach in Hawai’i will probably have only your foot prints on it.
An island where there is so little automobile traffic, there’s not a single traffic light.
There’s no mall, no elevators and no neon. No burger wars here.
Shopping is done in small, friendly businesses in Kaunakakai, the largest town, and in the villages of Kualapu’u and Maunaloa.
Life here is slow and relaxed.
It’s rural and peaceful.
It’s like stepping back in time 50 years.
It’s a place like no other.

Attractions on Molokai are as varied as the topography and as relaxed as the island attitude.
On Molokai, you can do as much as you want or nothing at all. Perhaps a little of both? Snorkeling, scuba, fishing, whale watching, golf, hikes, tours? Or maybe try to complete that book you’ve been reading. Or a nap at the beach under a palm tree.
Special events on Molokai include a celebration of the birth of hula which occurred here, men’s and women’s outrigger canoe races across the 26 mile channel to Waikiki on Oahu and a plethora of parades, festivals and other “only on Molokai” events.
Perhaps the most stunningly beautiful place in Hawai’i, Kalaupapa Peninsula is the site of Saint Damien’s mission where he ministered for 16 years to those suffering from Hansen’s disease.
