Molokai Vacations

Sparsely populated Moloka'i is the last surviving piece of the old rural Hawaii. It exists in a kind of time warp: no packaged Hawaiiana, no high-rises, and more farmers than tourists - and locals are fighting to keep it that way, protesting, picketing and raising hell against the Moloka'i Master Plan, which is eyeing beguiling La'ua Point for luxury homes.

What To See

Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm
Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm is the best in all of Hawaii. Tuddie Purdy takes you into his orchard and personally explains how the nuts grow. Purdy's 1.5 acres of mature trees are nearly 75 years old and grow without pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizer. Everything is done in quaint Moloka'i style: you can crack open macadamia nuts on a stone with a hammer, and sample macadamia blossom honey scooped up with slices of fresh coconut.

Kaunakakai Wharf
The days when pineapple was loaded from Kaunakakai Wharf are gone, but the harbor still hums with activity. A commercial interisland barge chugs in, skippers unload catches of mahimahi(white-fleshed fish), and a buff guy paddles his outrigger canoe. At dusk, the scene becomes sun-kissed. A roped-off area with a floating dock provides a small kiddie swim area.

Kalaupapa Overlook
The Kalaupapa Overlook provides a scenic overview of the Kalaupapa Peninsula from the edge of a 1600ft cliff. Because of the angle of the sun, the best light for photography is usually from late morning to mid-afternoon. Interpretive plaques identify significant landmarks below and explain Kalaupapa's history as a leprosy colony.
