About Molokai Island

Named as one of the "must see" places on earth in the 2006 Frommer's Guide

Molokai Island is ideal for longer term vacations

The Island of Moloka'i is just 20 minutes from Honolulu but a world away in terms of tempo and lifestyle. Moloka'i is home of the "Hula" - heartbeat of the Hawaiian culture.

Here there are no highrises ... no buildings taller than a palm tree. The maximum speed is 45 mph and there isn't a stop light on the island. The total population on the Island of Moloka'i is about 7,000, yet only a quick 20 minutes hop to Honolulu by the local air shuttle.

Topography varies from lush jungle, to the highest sea cliffs in the world. The huge Moloka'i Ranch is 57,000 acres. Kepuhi Beach Resort (aka Kaluakoi Villas) at West Moloka'i in Kaluakoi is nestled on the western shore, adjacent to Hawaii's longest white sand beach where on any given day another couple is a crowd.
