Travel diary - Hawaii - Molokai

by AndreSTGT

"27th day"

Round-the-island-trip!
Through the arid western part of the island to the small "capital" Kaunanakai in the south.
Along the coast on the narrow coastal to highway, passing ancient fish ponds and a beautiful white sand beach with coconut palms to the East Coast, where the vegetation turns again into tropical green, especially in the remote Halawa Valley, the only valley on Molokai, that is accessible by car, with its impressive waterfalls and two rocky half moon bays.
On our way back we made a side trip to Kalaupapa viewpoint, which boasts tremendous views over the leprosy colony of Kalaupapa, and to Moomoni beach, a long half moon bay in a surreal landscape of dunes and brushes.
Molokai really is a remote island with few tourists, many inhabitants of Hawaiian origin and great diversity.
It's really hard to believe that this place belongs to the USA, it seems more like a remote outpost at the end of the world.

Accommodation

Ke Nani Kai; secluded apartment resort on the West Coast of Molokai. We had a very comfortable apartment with a modern kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and veranda.

"28th day"

Today we checked out the beaches on the West Coast.
What the western part of the island lacks in vegetation, it easily makes up for with its beautiful and deserted beaches.
Especially Papohaku Beach, the longest in Hawaii, is incredible. Picture perfect with white sand and turquoise water.
Hard to believe that we had this paradise all by ourselves for hours.

"29th day"

A hair-raising mule ride (140 $) down to the isolated Kalaupapa peninsula, a beautiful spot, which is still used as a leper colony and not accessible by road.
Picnic at one the most beautiful places (without exaggeration) in the world at the eastern end of the peninsula.

"30th day"

Flight to Honolulu, where we spent the morning.
We decided to spend most of our limited time in Waikiki, the famous beach resort.
Big mistake! Waikiki is a nightmare consisting of a high-rise apartment blocks and a beach, which must have been nice once, but which is totally spoiled now. So it's not very different from the horrible Spanish beach resorts.
Downtown Honolulu, on the other hand, is very attractive due to its interesting mix of American and exotic atmosphere.
