Just as the sun sets over the shimmering water, you both see it. A green flash just before the sun sets. With some patience and a little luck, this once in a lifetime experience can be shared from either Papohaku Beach or Kapukahehu Beach (Dixie Maru Beach), the best spots on the island to watch the unobstructed sunset. Or spend a magic hour at historic Kapuaiwa Coconut Grove, also known for its spectacular sunsets, and watch the colours change between the swaying coconut trees.
On Molokai, nature sets a romantic tone. As night falls, from the West End to the East End you’ll notice you’ve never seen the stars shine so bright, unaffected by city lights. The lack of streetlights, crowds and distractions will give you both a chance to get reacquainted with the constellations – and each other.
