The  Best Activities in Molokai

Molokai is the fifth-largest of the Hawaiian islands measuring 38 miles long by 10 miles wide. It lies 25 miles east of Oahu across the 25-mile wide Ka’iwi Channel, north of Lanai.

Many of the other Hawaiian islands are visible from the shores of Molokai. You can see Maui from the eastern shores and both Oahu and Lanai from the south shores.

Is Molokai Worth Visiting?

Molokai is everything that Maui and Oahu are not. There is very little tourism, the island is incredibly laid back, there are no luxury resorts and you will often find the beaches empty.

The Best Things to do in Molokai:

Molokai Mule ride to Kalaupapa - It may seem hard to believe that the Molokai leper colony still exists in this day and age but the Kalaupapa National Historic Park houses a tragic part of Hawaiian history.
