soon: The love here is for the casual lifestyle and the pristine land, and therein lies

Moloka’i’s appeal as a travel destination— one that allows visitors to truly and completely be “in the moment.”

Once known as ‘āina momona, the bountiful land, Moloka‘i offers a portal to what Hawai‘i might have been like in a bygone era. It’s a reward for serenity-seeking travelers, a place to unwind away from the rigors of urban life. On Moloka‘i, where the coconut trees tower over the buildings, you could actually be alone on a golden sand beach or in a forest of ironwood trees. A two-mile highway traverses the island, and you may discover that you’re the only one on the road.
