    Great experience. We got to hand-pick plumeria flowers from trees and then string together our own leis. Auntie Meana was our stand-in guide, and she was very pleasant with a wealth of knowledge and history of Molokai.

    We got here while exploring Molokaii.

    The church is part of a long history and tells a great story.

    Worth to stop for a few minutes.

    Nice clean beach. Long reef and rocky so you have to be careful not to step on any coral--know what you are doing. Mostly shallow.

    The harbor of Molokai is not a large or busy port, but part of a small, quaint community with some of the most friendly and family orientated people around. The views from the harbor up towards the mountains and coast is simply amazing.

    We took the tour to the waterfall and it was absolutely amazing. Dress to cross a river (shoes will get wet). You do need to be able to go over or under fallen trees. There is a beautiful pool of water that you can get in and refresh at the waterfall. The hike is about 2-3 miles each way. When you return to the flower farm, you are treated to smoothies. The owner used to own a smoothie stand in Hana, so they are delicious and refreshing. The flowers are stunning. He also treated us to his homemade dark chocolate. Great day trip with a breathtaking drive to get there!

    This is one of the temple sights where human sacrifice took place. It dates from 1300 AD and possibly earlier. Not too much different from other heiau sites throughout the islands.

    It was great to visit this tiny church.

    It can use a bit of some maintenance though,

    Great experience.

    Two beaches in Molokai are "beach snorkelable," with the other being Dixie Maru on the far southwest side. Murphy Beach (aka Waialua) is great for kids, as it is shallow, probably maximum 3ft out 100 ft and protected especially inside the old rock wall rubble. Almost no fish inside the rock pile. Outside, there are few, so intermediate to advance snorkelers probably not so happy due to fish shortage. However, there are small fragments of colorful coral and the shallow waters make the beach great for kids. There also are some good shade trees to rest beneath. Wheelchair accessibility would only be one of the new rugged terrain wheelchairs or to stay in one of the parking areas, which is doable.

    If you are shopping in town this is worth a stop. It's in the middle of town and taken well care of.

    Very long beach with nice sand. You need a good pair of beach shoes to wade or swim because of the rocks and stones in the surf

    Drive to Kawela Battlefield by keeping to right to end below water tower. Good walk up to water tower with awesome views of the ocean and Lanai!! 1000s died fighting King Kamehameha there. Bones and artifacts are still being found. DO NOT remove anything from the area so archeologists can research it.

    The coconut palms are there but that is about it. However, this is the place to go to get a coconut if you want to mail a coconut home.
