Way cool to draw, paint, tattoo a real coconut. Send it to a friend and help keep a tiny little post office alive for da locals. Mahalo.

Headed here first upon arriving on Molokai for the day. They provide the coconuts for you. You decorate them (they have markers) and then you just pay the postage. Our two came to about $15 each. They were pretty large ones. They made it home to the East Coast and were sitting on our porch when we got home (6... More

This was the first thing we did in Moloka'i, and probably the most fun. Postmaster Gary Lam is friendly and extremely helpful and this just added to a very fun experience. My kids (18 & 15) sent them to friends back home and they absolutely loved it We sent one to our house as well as a friend, and it... More

I had wanted to visit Molokai for YEARS. This is a must do while visiting the island. Bring in your own dry coconuts or help yourself to their's. I preferred to decorate my coconut at home in detail and brought it here to be mailed. Or, use the many markers there to use. Either way, it's neat! I weighed my... More

Was skeptical but it is a unique experience. The kids decorated a coconut for themselves. The Coconut is free but just have to pay postage. It a small post office out in the countryside and only takes a few minutes to do.

The post master was very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. We decorated our own coconuts and was also given directions to go see Aunt Teri so we could purchase beautifully decorated coconuts. She personalized them with whatever you want and takes them to the post office to mail them. We will have a keepsake forever from our time there.

The post office provides coconuts and markers; you pay postage. Fun for kids. Just make sure they've thought of their design before they start drawing on the coconut. Maybe bring some paper and pencils so they can sketch it out.

The postmaster at the Hoolehua Post Office could not make this an easier or more fun activity. Bins filled with coconuts and coloring pens/markers await you. While I had a great time designing a coconut to send my parents, I equally enjoyed meeting the postmaster who shares in the fun, a very thoughtful and kind man. My parents enjoyed receiving... More

At first, we were a little disappointed we couldn't take the easy way and just buy one of the beautifully decorated coconuts to post home. However, after a little encouragement from the very kind and friendly post office staff, my husband and I got to work on our own coconut postcard while waiting for the rain to clear up. I... More
