Unexpected Molokai

Double Lines

You came to Molokai to get off the beaten path and the “Friendly Isle” is happy to oblige. Ask a local at the Aqua Hotel Molokai to find out the best time to go to Kanemitsu's Bakery in Kaunakakai for their famous breads, piping hot from the oven. Most have heard of Kalaupapa National Historical Park, but for a different view take a drive to Palaau State Park, the 34-acre recreation area in Central Molokai with magnificent views overlooking the peninsula. And while Kamakou Preserve is an off the beaten path treasure, the dunes of Moomomi Preserve in northwest Molokai, also under the care of the Nature Conservancy, provides another unexpected adventure.
