The waters around Molokai are among the richest in the Pacific. Aside from having some of the more deserted beaches in Hawaii (there’s a reason travelers from every island often head here when they want to “get away”), Molokai is a welcome paradise for anglers and divers wishing to explore the living aquarium just beneath the water’s surface.
Take a sport-fishing charter from Kaunakakai, or whale watch in the Kalohi Channel during the winter months. Kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding are also amazing off Molokai’s pristine shores. Sprawling Papohaku Beach is ideal for a dip in the calmer summer months, while Kumimi Beach (also known as 20 Mile Marker Beach) is known for its great, easy-to-access snorkeling.
Molokai is also home to Hawaii’s longest continuous fringing reef, at 28 miles long. Natural “finger” coral and stony coral harbor honu (green sea turtles), Hawaiian monk seals and a swirling rainbow of reef fish, making for fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving.
