One man post office run by a really nice and helpful guy. Baskets full of free coconuts to chose from and lots of different colored Sharpies furnished to decorate them with. The coconuts with milk in them are heavier but are still edible. We sent two to Texas for $16.65 each. This is the kind of touristy thing I usually... More

It was a good experience for my 5 year old. He loved decorating his coconut. He tried to insist to write the address on his own coconut but I had to convince him to let me do it because his letters are too big. They won't fit on one side LOL. Overall it was fun.

Send yourself or your friends and family a fun self-decorated coconut from Molokai. Pay postage only ($12/average size coconut). Friendly post office workers.

A fellow traveler who had grandkids insisted we do this, and frankly, I thought it was going to be lame. But, when we arrived at the Post Office, the people were so nice (typical Molokai experience) and helped us get set up with pens, etc. to decorate the coconuts. We decided to send one to a snow-bound colleague in Ohio,... More

This is a fun way to memorialize your trip to Molokai and tap into the vast experience of the postal staff. We spoke with two persons at the office and they were both very helpful with directions and knowledge of the island.

This was one of the very first things we did in Molokai. You get a free coconut and you get to mail it out to any place in the USA. All you have to do is pay postage and decorate your coconut. I sent 3 and the coconuts got to my family before coming back home. It is fun, quirky... More

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
