What to do and see in Molokai, Hawaii (HI): The Best Things to do Good for Couples

August 1, 2021 Veronika Gaddis

Molokai embraces the true Hawaiian spirit but without the typical Hawaiian fanfare. The pace is slower here, the nightlife and megaresorts are practically nonexistent (no buildings taller than a coconut tree are allowed), you won't even find a traffic light on this small island (38 miles long and 10 miles wide). You will find tranquility and nature - waterfalls, beaches, coves, coral reefs and rainforests, all best explored by foot, horse or boat. Molokai is also known for its fabulous mountain biking.

Kamakou Preserve

Molokai's rain forest preserve.

Reviewed By nerissa21 - New York City, United States

Wow! Worth the trip to Moloka’i! Rent a good 4WD l. We parked close to the entrance of the Preserve and hikes all the way to the trail (as the road gets really muddy after some rain). Though you can drive all the way to the Pepe’Opae trailhead at the end of the road with a good vehicle. We passed by fragrant Eucalyptus groves, tall Ironwood pines. The Wailuku Lookout was gorgeous after the clouds cleared up in the afternoon (last 2 pics). The Pepe’Opae trail itself was a trip back in time with moss covered trees, ferns. At the end, there is a beautiful lookout. We had the trail all to ourselves! It was wet and boggy at parts, but the beauty of the trail is so worth it! Would return to Moloka’i just for this hike.

Had a lot of fun drawing on the nuts. The joy these nuts brought to our friends and family was well worth it. The fun stories of receiving theses are what makes great memories.

Molokai Lomi Therapeutic Massage and Healing Center

Reviewed By susanhB7463BR - Portland, United States

Alana is a healer, very knowledgable about the human body and listens and asks questions about injuries before she goes to work. The oils are of her own creation. We heard many stories about Molokai, and after she left, we felt invigorated. She said someoneon Molokai said she has an 'Old face, strong hands'. Very true. She worked based the time agreed on. Mahalo, Alana.

Molokai Mule Ride

A two hour mule ride down an 1800 foot cliff to Kalaupapa Peninsula.

Reviewed By Ela1255 - Juneau, United States

Our guide was amazing: KAhi , not sure how to spell it. What lovely man. I wish I gave him a big hug on our exit but I was preoccupied, our flight was getting ready to depart . KAhi I hope you see this: consider yourself hugged. He has so much knowledge, he sang to us twice, what a amazing voice. Once in a chapel, once in the bus. Very special. Kalaupapa is a sacred place, beautiful and powerful. Words cannot describe it. Read the novel Molakai before you go. It is the story of its people.

Halawa Valley

Situated on the eastern side of Molokai.

Reviewed By TrainsRFun - Boise, United States

Road signs threatened a bad road, but it was fine! So glad we ventured to the end of the road and beautiful setting. Stop at all the wide spots and take in the views along the way. Drive to the very end of the road where there is a much bigger parking area (and picnic tables) than the first place you see where there are only a few spots to park. But do take some time in the old townsite of Halawa where there is an old church with trees now growing in it. great photo ops. The prettiest part of the drive is through the Ironwood forest, near the end of the road.

Dixie Maru Beach (Kapukahehu)

Reviewed By rintoulk - Kimberley, Canada

We discovered this beach on one of exploring days. The water was very calm, clear and inviting. There was only one other couple at the beach the day we found it and they left shortly after we arrived. After doing some exploring of the surrounding area, (make sure you have proper footwear as the Kiawe trees have very sharp and sometimes long thorns!) a nice swim in the calm waters was the order of the day. As it was later in the afternoon when we discovered this beach, we decided to remain here while the sun set. It was magical: being on our own private beach and watching the sun sink beyond the horizon. A perfect end to a perfect day.

Kalaupapa Overlook

Reviewed By wesinsac - Sacramento, United States

We took a nice and short walk to the overlook to see the village below and it was a super clear day and great view of Kalaupapa village. The hiking trail down to the village has been closed due to a landslide and is inaccessible. We really wanted to hike down to the village, but it is off limits.
