​Molokaʻi Travel Tips

Getting to Molokaʻi

There are three ways to get to Molokaʻi: a 25-minute flight on a local air carrier from Oʻahu’s Honolulu International Airport Commuter Terminal (HNL), Maui's Kahului Airport (OGG) or Maui's Kapalua Airport (JHM) to Molokaʻi Airport (MKK).

Staying on Molokaʻi

Accommodations on Molokaʻi vary from the oceanfront Hotel Molokaʻi to rental condos, cottages and bed and breakfasts in Kaunakakai and Maunaloa.

Weather in Molokaʻi is pleasant throughout the year. Year-round temperatures average around 75º F (23.9º C). At Molokaʻi’s higher elevations it can get a bit cooler and wetter, so pack a light jacket. The West End of Molokaʻi is dryer and more arid while the mountainous East End is wetter and greener.

Traveling on Molokaʻi

It’s best to rent a car on Molokaʻi. The island is easy to navigate, with only one two-lane highway stretching across it from end to end. However, some excursions require the use of a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Quantities are limited, so make reservations in advance.

Remember to ease off the gas pedal here. As the sign says on your way out of the airport: “Slow down, you’re in Molokaʻi.”
