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 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.
Activities on Molokai
The negative comment I hear most frequently
about Molokai is "there's nothing to do". Well, that depends
on what you enjoy doing.
It's true, T]=the island has few organized activities, but the good news is,
you won't have to spend much to entertain
yourself. There are plenty of things to do on Molokai if you love outdoor
activities such as swimming, sunbathing, reading on the beach, snorkeling,
surfing, boogie boarding, scuba diving, boating, hiking, horseback riding,
kayaking, road cycling, mountain biking, and sightseeing. But if you're
looking for organized activities and fine dining, you won't find much of
either on Molokai.

ost of Molokai's visitors stay at one of the island's five condominium complexes but
there is also a hotel in Kaunakakai, a few guesthouses, several campgrounds, and
vacation homes offered for rent by their owners.
People don't visit Molokai for its cafes and restaurants because there really
are not many on the island. Most of Molokai's visitors cook for themselves, but
there are few places you can eat out if you get the urge.
