Like other reviewers state, this is a unique way to unleash a bit of creativity on your part and surprise the post office in your town as well as the recipient! It costs around $10 to mail one coconut. Examples of elaborately decorated coconuts are on display at the post office for inspiration. A large basket of magic markers of... More

Friendly and helpful staff and quick, fun, cheap way to make a memory! I had no idea they had this, heard it from a lady in town. Just do it!

My husband & I enjoyed decorating and mailing coconuts to family. The staff were very helpful. Cheap & memorable souvenir from the island. Definitely worth the stop!

This is a great idea and unusual sovernier of Molokai. The Post Master is so helpful, goes out of his way to assist with any enquiry. Sending the coconuts isn't as expensive as you would expect, and they can be sent anywhere in the world. This is definitely a don't miss place on beautiful Molokai

Always wanted to mail a coconut, finally got the chance. Only cost $11.00 to mail the nut, fully worth the value. This is one of our best vacation conversation pieces so far. Just go in, pick the coconut you like, get it checked at the counter, than start drawing on it. After about 20 minutes (per coconut), your ready to... More

It really did not take long and the drive over was worth it. I do believe this is the only place you can ship a coconut as is in the world. My son and husband loved it! They had plenty of markers and a few painted coconuts for inspiration. It really is worth it. Both the ones I picked still... More

Free coconuts, just draw on one, address it, pay for postage and it's on its way to your favorite friends or family members...or even send it to yourself. This stop at the post office near the Molokai airport was really neat and memorable. I've never had so much fun at a Post Office. The Postman at this location, named Gary,... More

I had read about the opportunity to send a coconut and insisted we had to make the drive to find this post office. We're so glad we did! It was such fun decorated a coconut to send to my grandson in NYC. It arrived in 4 days and he loved it! The postmaster was so delightful and took the time... More

Read about this stop on TA and happened to be in that area during a brief rainstorm. So we decided to check it out. Just as previously reported it is a really fun stop. Sent out five nuts. They provided nuts, markers and even a kids coloring book for tropical line drawing ideas. My first nut arrived in North Carolina... More

We travelled to Hawaii in early February and stayed on Maui, but had a one day fly in trip to Molokai. We had read about the post-a-nut process and thought it was fabulous. We found the little post office and the postmaster was just off to lunch, but gave me the customs declarations, coconuts and markers and let me have... More
