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

We loved this! We sent one to each of our loved ones. The kids loved it! We got pictures of them holding them. They provide you with dehydrated coconuts and magic markers. You can take them to decorate and bring back if you want to be more elaborate. There are 3 sides to a nut, one is for the address,... More

This is a fun little memento to send yourself while you are on vacation. It takes no time at all and the staff is really nice. You can take the coconut to you room to design it and bring it back later to mail.

Molokai is known as the "friendly isle". The people at the little post office in Hoolehua make that statement completely true. Incredibly friendly, willing to help whether it be stamps or Post A Nut. I did wish I had a more artist bent after seeing some of the examples of the coconuts that had been decorated for posting. But, they... More

The post master is so nice. We got to color a coconut and send for about $15. I sent one to my nephews back home who loved getting this quirky item in the mail and my mother in law sent one to herself so she can have a Molokai memory to last well past her vacation.

Why not? If you have kids back on the mainland that have never seen a real coconut this a relatively cheap and neat thing to do. They have the coconuts and a bunch of markers so all you do is draw anything that comes to mind, address it and then they send it. Just follow the signs to Hoolehua and... More

So much fun. Great friendly local service. Couldn't have been any happier with my "post-a-nut" experience.

Gary Lam is the Postmaster of this tiny post office and the service he provides is awesome. To be able to pick out a free coconut, decorate it with all the provided markers and then mail it - worth every penny and our grands have had a ball with the coconuts arriving in mail boxes! Well done USPS and Gary... More
