Molokai Off The Beaten Path

  • make your own footprints

    there are many places that you can find on your own in Molokai. You do have to be respectful of the land, the sea and the people that you meet.

  • Go on a Mule Ride

    Go on a mule ride. Our single reason for wanting to go to Moloka`i was to ride the mules down the switchbacks that lace the 2,200' (670m) high sea cliffs above the old leprosy settlement on the Kalaupapa peninsula. However, this isn't just any old mule ride! This ride takes you down a trail that switches back and forth across the face of the...

  • Hālawa Valley Hike

    Our guide, Lawrence Aki, also runs the Hālawa Valley Cooperative. This coop was formed to bring the variuos property owners in the valley under one group's administration and help protect the historical aspects contained there. We met Lawrence at the bottom of the valley access road next to the prominent roofless stone building. It was there...

  • east end drive

    The drive along the east end of the island, which is on the way to Halawa valley, has some beautiful spots to stop for pictures; especially of the east end beaches.

  • a beautiful jungle waterfall

    The drive to this waterfall, which is in the Halawa valley, has some of the best scenery on all of Molokai, just don't take your eye's off the road if you are the one driving! Its a one lane , very twisty, winedy road from about the 23 mile mark until the end of the road, which is about at the 25-26 mile marker. This is on the East end of the...

  • Mokapu and Okala islands

    These two islands are pretty much unaccessible and inorder to see this view, you have to take the Damien tour on the penninsula at kalaupapa... well worth the day!

  • Hike it or ride a mule!

    We did the hike down to kalaupapa, which is one of the last known Lepor colony's, left, in the world. It took us about 1 hr to hike down, 26 switch backs, there are steps, but be careful as it is a bit trecherous in spots, a very steep cliff on one side to say the least, but a most spectacular view of the entire penninsula and surrounding sea...

  • Watch for falling coconuts!!

    This is one of the few Royal coconut groves in the state of Hawaii. It was planted in the 1860's for King Kamehameha V. Many of the original 1000 trees still remain, with the tall royal palms giving a sense of grandeur. Beware of falling coconuts, however!

  • Appreciate the little things

    Appreciate the little things in life and what nature has to offer. I spotted this on our way to the Heiau.
