This area is well worth driving the relatively narrow one-lane highway. From waterfalls to beach, it's all worth taking the day(s) to explore and relax in! Very few people on the beaches during the week we visited. I can't wait to come back again!

Visited this early one morning before there was not much traffic on the road and had a wonderful time. It is a much more enjoyable drive when you don't have to fight traffic on the narrow roads in this part of the island. The view at the end of the road was great and there were many great views along... More

We took the road to Halawa Valley while on a tour of the island. Well worth the trip but I am very glad we were able to enjoy the sights rather than worry about the one lane road, at times. You are so close to the ocean at times that you can spot fish in the water. Take your time... More

The drive is beautiful. About an hour long if you don't stop but you should stop and enjoy one of the tiny beaches along the way. Bring towels, water, picnic and camera. The road is winding so be careful if you sit in the back of the car as you could get car sick as one of our family members... More

The drive to get there takes about an hour but plan on booking a hike through Molokai Fish and Dive to get the real experience. If you just drive there you can just see waterfalls from a distance. If you do the hike you will learn about the culture and what a small portion of the actual culture is actually... More

You feel like the only tourists on the island. You might be! There is nothing here for tourists to "DO". No boat rides. No surfing. No parasailing. No shops but very old, primitive ones. Just one market, you buy what they have, not what you want. Two gas stations, one health center, all unpainted and in poor repair. Then there... More

This is a scenic drive well worth the several hours. We stopped at several spots along the way to relax and enjoy the view. We had booked the hike to the falls, but were thwarted by rain earlier in the week and the trail was closed. Still worth the drive. Bring a picnic lunch so you can enjoy--there is no... More

We took this drive to the beach twice on our trip. It is a long twisty drive, but so beautiful. The beach at the end was a great reward. We were able to swim and enjoy the nice beach. There were several nice little beaches to stop at along the way, too.

this was a beautiful drive on a very slender road that lines the Molokai east coast. many beautiful pull-offs for pictures and once at the end there is a wonderful beach to rest back and take in the sights. If you want you can hike up the trail(if not too wet) to a huge waterfall, hike, picnic, enjoy the sights... More

At the far eastern end of Molokai is the magnificent Halawa Valley & beach. The road leading to the area is narrow, winding & often single lane, but the drive is beautiful & definitely worthwhile. The main beach area is in a protected cove & is accessed by wading across a shallow stream of water. The views back over the... More
