Imagine the Hawaii of the past. Unspoiled country and untouched beaches. No skyscrapers or traffic lights. The chance to truly live as the locals do. That's Molokai today. Hawaii's fifth-largest island, Molokai is only 61km long and 16km across at its widest point. Molokai is home to the highest sea cliffs in the world along its northeast coast and Hawaii's longest continuous fringing reef off Molokai's southern coast.

On foot, by bike or 4 wheel drive, this is a island of outdoor adventure. Take the road less travelled and get red dirt in your shoes, whether you're hiking along the 520 metre cliffs leading to Kalaupapa National Historical Park or discovering Papohaku Beach, one of Hawaii's biggest white sand beaches. Visit unique shops and galleries in Maunaloa.

With a high percentage of its population being of Native Hawaiian ancestry, Molokai is a place where Hawaiian culture thrives. The people of Molokai continue to preserve their rural lifestyle thanks to their love of the land, or aloha aina, and you can feel this aloha from small town Kaunakakai to sacred Halawa Valley. Hawaii's past comes alive on Molokai.
