Welcome to Molokai, The Most Hawaiian Island. Often called “The Friendly Island” because the aloha spirit flourishes here.

If you’re looking for the real Hawai’i, this is it.

kapuaiwa-anuenue-1If you’re looking for old Hawai’i, this is it.

If you’re looking for breathtaking natural beauty, rain forests or deserted beaches, this is it.

If you’re looking for glitz and glamour, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

This is an honest look at an island lost in time.

An island where no building is taller than a palm tree.

Where aloha is not just a word, it’s a way of life.

Where one of the longest white sand beaches in Hawai’i will probably have only your foot prints on it.


An island where there is so little automobile traffic, there’s not a single traffic light.

There’s no mall, no elevators and no neon. No burger wars here.

Shopping is done in small, friendly businesses in Kaunakakai, the largest town, and in the villages of Kualapu’u and Maunaloa.

Life here is slow and relaxed.

It’s rural and peaceful.

It’s like stepping back in time 50 years.

It’s a place like no other.

On Molokai, you can do as much as you want or nothing at all. Perhaps a little of both? Snorkeling, scuba, fishing, whale watching, golf, hikes, tours? Or maybe try to complete that book you’ve been reading. Or a nap at the beach under a palm tree.

If you’re visiting our beautiful island, you’ll be needing a place to stay. You can find the perfect choice on the Accommodations Page.
