How to Unwind & Unplug on Molokai

Finding the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life may be closer than you think. Molokai is a Hawaiian island 26 miles from Oahu. Known as The Most Hawaiian Island, or Friendly Island, it’s said to be the birthplace of the hula. The island remains distant from tourists, with no malls, street lights, or major food chains. It represents a simpler, peaceful island loved by its inhabitants and those who visit. There are no major hotels, but vacation rentals are available for those looking for a relaxing getaway.

3 Ways to Get the Most out of Molokai

1. Experience the Authenticity

No areas on Molokai are filled with tourists, so plan to experience the island first hand.  Depending on the time of the year, vacationers can attend the Ka Moloka’i Makahiki Festival in January, Ka Hula Piko Hula Festival in June, or the Festivals of Aloha in October.

2. Appreciate the Outdoors

Vacation Rentals

Snorkeling, hiking, canoeing, and whale watching are a few of the activities vacationers enjoy on Molokai. However, talk to locals and travel guides before venturing into unknown waters.

 The large, undeveloped lands, such as Father Damian’s historic leper colony, may be restricted without a tour guide. It can be reached by foot, mule, or plane, but the locals prefer visitors to be escorted by a guide.

3. Stay in a Vacation Rental

Relaxing in a bungalow or resort near the beach is a peaceful way to rest and unplug from the rest of the world. The warm, salty air creates the perfect environment for finishing a novel, relieving stresses of city living, or getting in touch with oneself or a loved one.
