Outdoor explorers, eco-seekers, ocean adventurers – welcome to Molokai – an island that’s unequivocally “Hawaiian By Nature”. A sign at the airport - “Slow Down, This is Molokai!”- is your first clue that folks here live and love life at a very different pace. As locals know, there’s relaxed, and then there’s Molokai.

Don’t misunderstand, there’s a lot doing on the island. Many still work the land and sea as their forefathers once did, but it’s the way things are done that makes the island special. Hawaiians hold true to the traditions of their kupuna – or ancestors – assuring the Molokai lifestyle remains untouched and unspoiled.

Adventurers can kayak miles of pristine barrier reefs or hike picturesque Halawa Valley. Ride horseback along gorgeous coastlines and mountain bike over soaring sea cliffs.

Experience the majesty of historic Kalaupapa and comb golden beaches where the only footprints are your own.

In the main town of Kaunakakai, there are no traffic lights, and no buildings taller than a coconut tree. Stroll along the main street and “talk story” with the locals. Simply listen and you will surely learn. Discover the warmth, friendliness, and good old-fashioned “aloha” of this rustic Hawaiian town.
