"Molokai: An Island Lost in Time" Top 5 Page for this destination Molokai by Stephen-KarenConn

Molokai Travel Guide: 126 reviews and 244 photos

Tourists flock to Oahu and Maui by the hundreds of thousands. A relative handful of intrepid travelers venture to Molokai. With only two hotels and scant restaurants, Molokai has a totally different feel from the touristy glitz of it's better known neighbor islands. On the entire island there is not a single traffic light, nor is there a single building with an elevator in it. If you like bright lights, noise, and 24/7 action, stay in Waikiki. For those who want to experience the old Hawaii - the way it used to be - come to Molokai, "The Forbidden Isle."

Karen and I chose this as the last stop of our three island November trip, and it was without doubt our favorite. We only had four days here; four months would not have been too much.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Few commercial establishments.
  • Cons:Subway is the only fast food place on the island.
  • In a nutshell:Uncomercialized Hawaii without all the crowds.
  • Last visit to Molokai: Nov 2003

    Your Kalaupapa Mule ride made me jittery;it reminded me of riding in Arizona recently. I've ridden alot myself, but a bad trail is a bad trail. I was truly grateful to several horses & their inate wisdom for carrying me through it all safely! Nice page.

    Hi Stephen, what a wonderful Molokai page... I loved Molokai because there were hardly any tourists. There is a Subway? we only found KFC in Maunaloa :-)

    Stephen, what a lovely, genuine tribute to Molokai. Bittersweet information about Kalaupapa National Historic Park. Condo sounds wonderful, and the beach looks like Paradise, indeed.

    Nice page on this very special place! I'm so scared of heights we walked down the trail to Kalaupapa (I couldn't trust a mule!)!
