Molokai Vacation Packages & Travel Packages
Molokai lives up to its reputation as the most Hawaiian place chiefly through its lineage: More people here are of Hawaiian blood than anywhere else. The island of Molokai is the least developed, most "Hawaiian" of all the islands. This make the island especially attractive to adventure travelers and peace seekers. Molokai has no deluxe resorts, no stoplights, and no buildings taller than a coconut tree.
This slipper-shaped island was the cradle of Hawaiian dance (the hula was born here) and the ancient science of aquaculture. An aura of ancient mysticism clings to the land here, and the old ways still govern life. The residents survive by taking fish from the sea and hunting wild pigs and axis deer on the range. Some folks still catch fish for dinner by throwing nets and trolling the reef. But that is exactly the charm of the "Friendly Isle." This is a place where Mother Nature is wild and uninhibited, with very little intrusion by man. Forget sophistication, this is one of the few spots on the planet where one can stand in awe of the island's diverse natural wonders: Hawaii's highest waterfall and greatest collection of fishponds; the world's tallest sea cliffs; sand dunes, coral reefs, rainforests, and hidden coves; and gloriously empty beaches.
