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

You can pick out a coconut and send it back to the mainland. There are several coconuts in some baskets and you take your choice. She then shows you where... More

This small local post office provides free coconuts that you can decorate & mail to friends back home. They also provide markers & have samples of some of the beautifully decorated coconuts on display. A unique & fun offering by a delightful local postal service.

Gary must be the nicest post master in the world! You can tell he really enjoys his job. He was so helpful and friendly. We had a ton of fun decorating our coconuts and mailing them all over the world, but not Australia. This is the best kind of souvenir we could get for our friends and family. It was... More

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

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
