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

They have lots of coconuts to choose from and they leave all different types of markers out for decoration. It was actually a lot of fun doing it. And once my son received it, he was showing it off to everyone. The post office is closed at lunchtime, meaning you can't even use the restroom. The people working there was... More

We stole some ideas on what to draw from other customers at the post office, where everyone appeared to have a genuinely great time doodling all over their coconuts. The person who received my coconut was very happy as well. A great place to be if you have some extra time on Molokai. They are closed on weekends.

After reading TripAdvisor's reviews, we had to stop and post-a-nut from the Hoolehua Post Office on Molokai. As reported, Gary, the postman, couldn't have been nicer! He was busy stamping a nut enroute to Switzerland while we were decorating our coconut and chatting. We did nothing but laugh all the while. Can't wait for our grandkids to get it. By... More

Post-A-Nut is so much fun. The post office will mail a coconut for you. They provide the coconuts and the coconuts themselves are free. The post office has a bunch of markers out for you to decorate. They weigh it and you just pay for postage. The staff member at the desk was very nice and explained how it all... More
