Planning a trip to Hawaii leaves you bewildered, because you are already gushing with excitement and you can’t choose between such amazing choices of exotic tropical islands. Molokai Isle is the ode to the natural beauty and tranquil place which is permeated with its indigenous culture. It is second to none when it comes to unwinding oneself on a beach holiday and has got all the traits of the ideal detoxifier. So, if you are looking for a place which will wash away your anxieties and revive up your soul, Molokai is the place for you. While you can spend hours lying on the sun loungers to see the clouds drift by, there’s plenty to do in both off shores and the inner parts of the isle.
Molokai’s Halawa Valley is a dive into ancient past. In pre-contact era, it had a populace of more than 1000 indigenous tribe and a complex irrigation system was devised out to water the taro fields. Today, barely any human influence is seen here. Take a hiking tour, which swooshes through the dense forests and get rewarded with the base of towering waterfalls which are euphoric to plunge in.
Popularly known as Murphy’s Beach, this beach is bordered by a reef and has turquoise tidal ponds that are perfectly shallow and calm which makes it a favorite among families. Beyond the lagoons, snorkelers will get to see a smorgasbord of submarine wilderness; living sponges, variety of vibrant fishes and even octopuses.
Kalaupapa National Historical Park
The mesmerizing Kalaupapa Penisula is the remote seductress of Molokai. To reach this emerald green peninsula by land which is outlined by creamy-white shorelines, you need to scramble down twisting and turning trails from the daunting Pali – the world’s highest sea bluffs.
But this just half the fun, the real adventure begins when you ride a mule or when you hitch hike downwards via winding trail which peers through tropical woods, soaking up the enticing sight of the sea far down is a experience you won’t forget for too long.
