The centre of Molokai is also the center of local life on this, the most Hawaiian of islands. You’ll arrive at Molokai Airport in Hoolehua, where you can tour a macadamia nut farm (Hawaii grows the majority of the world’s macadamia nuts), tour the 200-hectare Coffees of Hawaii’s coffee farm or stop in to the Hoolehua Post Office to mail home a coconut (you just provide the postage).
Then head south to Molokai’s main town of Kaunakakai, where the tallest point is the church steeple. Go on a fishing or boating adventure from Kaunakakai Harbor or explore the local shops and historic landmarks.
Along the north coast of Central Molokai is the isolated Kalaupapa Peninsula, home to the historic Kalaupapa National Historical Park. Inaccessible by car, you can hike or take a mule ride along 520-metre sheer cliffs to reach this peaceful outpost, or you can view it from the 300-metre elevations of scenic Palaau State Park.
