“Really Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I rode out some abandoned roads off of 480 and got spectacular view to the east and the west. I would give you more detail, but nothing was marked. We just headed west toward the end of 480 and kept making rights (north) toward to beach/cliffs. One of the roads took us past tons of abandoned cars and large appliances. The landscape was almost lunar-like. It was really cool.

“Tallest Sea Cliffs In The World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The pali along the North Coast of the Island of Molokai are the tallest sea cliffs in the world. Some of them tower as high as 4,000 above sea level, intertwined with deep beautiful valleys and highlighted by numerous waterfalls, one of them, Papalauea, has a 1200-foot cascade. The lighhouse marking the Kalaupapa Peninsula was the brightest in the world, until relaced by an automated light some years ago. Unfortunately, there are only two ways to really appreciate them - by sea and by air. Once in a while you will find a boat service that will take you along them. Or, many times, while flying from Honolulu to Maui, your airline will fly you along them. If you are fortunate to spend some time on Maui, it will be worth you while to take one of the helicopter tours that will fly you along them and into and out of the valleys. You can see part of them from the Kalaupapa Lookout on Molokai, and more should you take one of the tours down onto the Peninsula itself, but the best view of all will be by helicopter.

“Awesome from ground and the air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We saw this coast from an air tour and from a ground tour. Awesome views. Coming from the Virginia Atlantic coast where the land meets the sea at sea level, this was amazingly different. Beautiful!

“Beautiful cliffs, not much else”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We enjoyed our trip there, but want to warn travelers that it isn't like any other island in the Hawaiian chain. Strongly recommend the mule trip to the colony.

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Since I suffer vertigo I did not go completely out to the edge......yikes. But the view I did get was spectacular. The windsong throught the pine trees was comforting.
