The drive out to the east coast from the main town takes about an hour each way. For the last half, the road gets narrow and curves a lot; it reminds me of the road to Hana on Maui without the traffic and all the waterfalls (we only saw one waterfall). There is a very pretty view of the beach,... More

This is a must place to see. We drove down to bottom of valley along a spectacular road with views round each corner. There is a car park with plenty of space, and you can walk to the beach. You can see the waterfalls from the car park this we just photographed them, didn't walk up to them. There is... More

Our guide was very knowledgable and helpful. The falls was absolutely beautiful. The hike was about an hour to the falls and only challenging when we had to cross the river because It had rained the previous days and was really flowing fast. We spent some time at the beach at the end of the hike. The views of the... More

This is so much more than a hike to a waterfall. Anakala Pilipo Solatorio was 7 years old when the 1946 tsunami hit Halawa. You share a Honi ceremony (Hawaiian breath exchanging) before he tells you the history and culture of the valley from his own personal experiences. His son leads the hike to the falls. No offense but all... More

After the interesting and winding road leading into to the valley (plus picking up a tourist out there hitch hiking in the middle of nowhere) we were ended up at the beach at the end of the road. There we got to meet Anakala Pilipo Solatorio the last living native Hawaiian that was born, raised and still lives in the... More

The drive to this cove at the bottom of the cliffs is truly an amazing ride. Narrow road, lots of curves and switchbacks, but the views are absolutely spectacular. A must see. The other must see view is Pāla'au State Park (Kalaupapa Lookout). Since you are there you might as well take another short walk to phallic rock...

We did the hike to the falls at Halawa Valley through Molokai Flowers. Kalani met us at the pavilion which is just before the end of the road where the bathrooms are. He and his wife toured us through their flower garden and their son led us to the falls. It was a not to missed tour. I am not... More

This is a VERY long drive from town. So, if you are short on time, this could be missed. And definitely bring your own food and drink. Make sure you have enough gas to get back to town. The area is very pretty and you are basically alone way out there.

The Halawa Valley is lush and gorgeous. The drive to Halawa, spectacular. The hike in to Moa'ula waterfall- fairly easy, interesting and laden with items of historic importance, from petroglyphs to stone walls and a heiau (temple). Swimming under the falls-divine! So why the low marks? Quite simply, because the guide delivered a 90 minute cultural harangue- it can only... More
