Information for visitors to the island of Molokai in the state of Hawaii. Molokai is the least visited of the six largest Hawaiian Islands. The island only has one small hotel and fewer than 20 restaurants. It is considered by many to the "most Hawaiian Island" and it is worth nothing that the local residents want to keep it that way. Visiting Molokai is not for everyone because the island has very little tourism infrastructure. It is definitely not a destination for shopping, nightlife, or gourmet dining.

Molokai is the fifth largest of the Hawaiian Islands, one of the most rural, and one of the least developed for tourism. There are not many hotels and restaurants on Molokai but there are a few condominiums and vacation homes available for rent, some local cafes,and a couple of moderately priced hotel restaurants. There are no cities on Molokai, only one small town and a few even smaller villages. If you are looking for nightlife, fancy hotels, and upscale restaurants, you will not find them on Molokai. But if you want a taste of what Hawaii was like before it was developed for tourism, you don't mind renting a car to get around, and you love remote places, hiking, water sports, or just getting away from it all, then you should consider a laid back vacation on Molokai.
