Mahalo to Damian James for supplying his gorgeous photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series. Damian took this photo on Molokai.

As Damian shared this photo he simply said, “Molokai…you don’t know until you go!” Though ... Read More »

Best things to see, do and try on Molokai

9185185189_fdbc19c662_z

Each Hawaiian island has its own personality and attractions that make it unique. Molokai’s tagline is Hawaiian by nature. From my observation Molokai earns that reference from its untouched beauty and lack of commercialism. There are no high-end hotels, luxury spas or signature golf courses on Molokai. Instead you’ll find miles of unspoiled coastline, valleys and mountains. With Molokai being ... Read More »

Molokai mule ride and tour of Kalaupapa – an awesome adventure!

Ocean view from Kalaupapa Trail

Traversing the steep, cliff-hugging Kalaupapa Trail by mule stirred up nerves. Leading up to the sunny morning that we checked in at the Molokai mule ride stables, Andy had been hoping the tour would be canceled. He asked if the tour would be called off, if the trail was too muddy. Then, he carefully checked the ground conditions. Much to ... Read More »

At their nearest points, the islands are only separated by about 10 miles of beautiful blue ocean. I always find the views of the other islands to be intriguing. Seeing Lanai ... Read More »
