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

Just one of the few fun things to do in Molakai. You enter this very small Post Office and there stands a smiling lady who just loves to help you. 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
