I am returning to the Hawaiian Island of Molokai after 5 years, this time my Mother and sisters are joining me. I am planning an “Experience Molokai” on a 4 day excursion. We will stay at Hotel Molokai (a genuine luxury hideaway) from all things mainstream - which is styled after a Polynesian village and located on Kamiloloa beach. It is a tiny oceanfront resort complete with a bar and restaurant - by the way, it’s the only place to get draft beer on the island! The hotel is “community minded” as they offer a Polynesian show every Friday night as well as host a community party once a year - this year its on January 24th - we will be there.
When visiting Molokai you will experience authentic Hawaii with unspoiled coastlines, serene seascapes, untamed wilderness and no building taller then a cocoanut tree. In the central town of Kaunakakai, absent of traffic lights and virtually unchanged since the early 1900’s.
This charming paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town is also the island’s main harbor, where some locals still fish for their dinner. Stroll down to Kaunakakai Harbor to the end of the state’s longest pier, extending well past the reef - just you, the local fisherman and the sound of local boats slowly jetting out of the harbor.
