Do NOT miss this! Call Eddie Tanaka for your guide. Soak in the culture, swim in the astonishingly cold waters below the falls.

The drive starts to get really interesting as of Murphy Beach at milemarker 20. Nice little road uphill with great views of the valley. There's hardly any traffic so easy to pull over and take pictures. The tall green grass on both sides of the road makes it a great drive. No need to worry about the road conditions. Perfectly...

The drive along the coast to the Halawa Valley takes about a half day round-trip. It is not for timid drivers, as there is a stretch of the road towards the end that is one lane along the twisting face of a large cliff with sheer drops and blind turns. It was a little frightening going in, and we prayed... More

We arranged our hike through the Hotel Molokai, and this hike to the bottom of the falls was excellent! The trip out is a bit strenuous with 2 river crossings, but the guide took good care of us, and explains many plants, trees, and historical items along the way.... The end of the hike at the falls bottom is worth... More

The road to Hawala Valley is very narrow one lane road, so recommend to rent a compact car to get there. It's a little scary to drive to there, but the view is breath taking - waterfalls, the mountain and the water. It's well worth going there.

My gf and I drove to the valley from Kaunakakai. Took us about 90 minutes because we made a few stops at some pretty little beaches along the way. The road goes to one lane the last few miles, but there's virtually no traffiic. We met 2 other cars on the road, and getting around them was not an issue.... More

My adult daughter and I took the guided tour to Halawa Falls through Molokai Flowers on Labor Day. We met Kalani at the Saturday Growers Market in Kaunakakai; his flowers are stunning and grown in Halawa Valley at his farm which has been in his family since the 1840's; Kalani receives tour requests via email and tells you date, time...

It is a long sometimes winding, one lane drive. You may have to pull to the side to let the car past coming toward you. The views are great. Take your time enjoy the drive. Take food and water for sure. I love Molokai and this is one of the reasons why - not over populated with tourists. This is... More

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
