We were staying at the beach on the far west end of the island and Halawa Valley is at the Far East end. It’s narrow, windy, roads but oh so worth it!! We saw the falls from the road but didn’t pay to walk to...More

Getting there the road becomes a little treacherous, with a single, narrow lane, that has plenty of sharp curves. If you are riding down there along the outside of the cliff, don't pull your car over to let another pass. Let the other car, on...More

The "Road to Halawa" is gorgeous and not nearly as harrowing as the Road to Hana. The ride along the southern shore of Molokai is breathtaking. There are places to pull off and take in the beauty. There are also several beaches along the way...More

This is a nice drive, it takes a while to get to the end but very scenic. some great beaches to visit on the way. Some of the locals may seem to give you a little stink eye at the bottom. Just be respectful.

This is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I've ever been to. The drive to the beaches has breath-taking views of green mountains, waterfalls, beaches, and the ocean. I even saw some whales spouting from the shore. The beaches at the end of the...More

This valley is at the eastern end of Molokai. What made it really interesting (besides the narrow, winding road) was that it was the birthplace of our guide. Obviously, his stories enhanced our village. It's a little effort to get there, but it is a...More

Like the rest of Molokai, the Halawa Valley is pretty secluded and private. The road to get here is pretty quiet and not for anyone who is prone to carsickness. Nice black sand beach and some decent surfing here. You need to have permission to...More

This is where fresh water meets the ocean, and creates a sanctuary for kids to play safely in the water.
