Molokai is nature’s version of taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly. Peaceful scenes of a timeless ocean lapping at pristine shorelines. Landscape as untamed and awe-inspiring as when it first came into being. Beauty and serenity unlike anywhere else. The island is all that, and your Molokai honeymoon can be as relaxed or action-packed as you see fit.
The fifth largest Hawaiian island, Molokai rests almost in the center of the volcano archipelago state, with the lights of Honolulu on Oahu glimmering at night from the western side, and islands Lanai and Maui visible to the south. Here on Molokai there are no traffic lights or throngs of people and your days can be filled with quiet escapes sunbathing or fishing, taking a mule ride to coastal cliffs in Kalaupapa National Historical Park or perhaps indulging in the rich Polynesian culture at a delicious luau. After all, Molokai is the birthplace of hula.
Your honeymoon on Molokai is a return to an ancient visual feast of coconut trees, gorgeous waterfalls and plants and flowers that seem from a spectacular, long-gone epoch. This is a perfect getawaythat is as rewarding to the senses as it is to your very soul.
Molokai may be small—only 38 miles long and 10 miles wide—but it also is an island with very big and unique features. The cliffs bordering the sea on the northeast coast are the world’s highest at just under 4,000 feet, the southern coast boasts Hawaii’s longest fringing reef at 28 miles and Papohaku Beach with its white sand is among the state’s largest. And all in between you’ll find ample opportunity to indulge sailing, snorkeling, hiking and just plain enjoying an astoundingly pristine tropical paradise.
