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

It was like a mini drive to Hana, very scenic road to the Valley but not so intense you can enjoy some of the scenery. Valley was nice and great place do have a picnic lunch or a lazy afternoon. They do have a guided tour to the waterfall but you need to be there by 9AM, we did not... More

It is well worth to take the drive to the Halawa Beach park. The road was very narrow in many places, but the drive was extremely beautiful. The highway ends at the park. The surroundings looked kind of deserted and there were signs indicating no trespassing. There was also a sign that said no hiking today due to rain and... More

We booked the Halawa Valley hike direct with Greg Solatorio. When we arrived at the park before 9 a.m. there were signs that the hike had been cancelled until further notice because of trail conditions and danger of flash flood, but a guide did show up. We gathered in the park pavilion while Pilipo Solatorio shared stories of life in... More

I was there on my honeymoon .I had been living in oahu in Honolulu, but molokai is a drastic change, we loved it..hardly no one around us .as opposed to oahu ...the hike to the falls was absolutely gorgeous.that was over twenty years ago. I hope the people and population has not been to altered. It was truly paradise. Mahalo.

The views are fantastic. After following a two-lane road along Molokai’s southern shore, a single-lane roads cuts across Molokai’s mountainous eastern end to reach Halawa Bay near the island’s northeast point. This view looks down upon the bay, and it’s another 5 to 10 minute drive down to the bay’s Halawa Beach Park. Bring your own food and drinking water.... More

Visiting Molokai is like visiting Kauai 50 years ago before Princeville & all the other developments. The drive to the Halawa Valley travels along the oceanfront then climbs up & over the east end of the island through ranch country to an astounding final few miles of switchbacks as you drop down to Halawa Beach. Vistas of Molokai mountains and... More

Take the last few miles of the drive to Halawa very carefully. Philip and his family are very proud of their culture and they took about an hour to talk about their experiences and how they interact with others that reside in the valley. The hike is quite intense and would not recommend this to someone that is not athletic... More
