Sightseeing in Molokai - what to see. Complete travel guide

One of the most beautiful Hawaiian Islands, Molokai is a paradise for nature lovers, walks through uncharted tropics and trouble-free rest on a spacious beach. Here you will not find even one modern building, a cinema or a shopping center. The island has preserved its unforgettable atmosphere of antiquity. Even if you bypass the whole island, you won’t find a single building, which would be higher than palm trees.

Since this resort is quite unique, it is not loved by all travelers, especially by those who are accustomed to civilization in all its glory. The rest in Molokai is quiet and secluded. Even in the biggest town of the island traffic is quite a rarity, and traffic lights on roads haven’t even been installed. Modern tourists will also notice the lack of usual neon signs, large buildings and modern shopping centers. Stores here are small, but the choice of products will please visitors by its variety.
After your arrival to the island you will feel like you have been transported a half of a century ago as the life here is unhurried and simple. A large area of the island is reserved for beach area, and so the beaches here are pretty deserted and quiet, with very few tourists. Such quiet places have been quickly chosen by fishing enthusiasts, many of which also prefer underwater hunting. Copyright

Kalaupapa Park, located in the northern part of Molokai, is considered the historical part of the island. Once a colony for lepers has been established in that region; even though the patients are not brought in for a long time, the area remains closed. Tourists can get to this part of the island only together with a guide. Another remarkable place, which is perfectly suited for solitary pastime, is the Palaau Park. Here travelers are invited to ride mules, examine local waterfalls and enjoy the beauty of landscapes. Molokai is a real piece of untouched nature.

On the island is also located the factory Coffees of Hawaii, which produces high-quality coffee. Once upon a time in the places where coffee trees are grown today, there were vast pineapple plantations and a processing factory. When the factory closed, it was decided to build a new one in its place. Since then local professionals have been engaged in the production of high-quality coffee, which is now known all over the world. Tourists are offered to stroll through the extensive coffee plantations, watch the factory’s work, and also visit an excellent souvenir shop and choose memorable souvenirs in thematic style. In the vast territory of the plant, there is also a small cafe where visitors are invited to try different varieties of a fragrant drink.
