BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • One of Molokai's best attributes is that it is reminiscent of old Hawaii because people here have held onto traditions and culture and have fought development. This is the island on which to experience Hawaiian culture, and this adventure combines cultural activities with a 2.2-mile intermediate hike to a waterfall.
  • The lush and misty Halawa Valley is the site of one of the first Hawaiian settlements in the island chain. It is steeped in history and legends and the landscape is exactly what you picture when thinking of tropical islands—tree branches bent with fruit, thick forests, and waterfalls tumbling into clear pools.
  • Ask your guide about the legend of Moaula Falls while you're sitting around admiring its serene beauty before the hike back. Keep in mind that while this hike isn't difficult, it does involve crossing two streams on stones, uneven terrain, and scrambling over a few boulders.
