How often can you mail a coconut? Enough said. While I was there people kept coming in to get some for the kids to decorate. Fun way to send yourself a welcome home gift or someone who was not able to make the trip.

Unfortunately we arrived on a Saturday too late to go, followed by Sunday/closed, followed by a Monday Holiday/closed. Tuesday we went and picked up two coconuts to mail back home to our grandkids. I planned ahead and brought along a pack of multicolored sharpies so we could do our artwork in the evening at our timeshare. Gary, the Postmaster, is... More

Such an easy and fun activity! They provide the coconuts, the markers, and the postage. We had fun making the the "post-a-nut" and our family had a blast receiving them!

We mailed a coconut to some friends to let them know we were having fun on Molokai. We had fun sending and they enjoyed receiving it. The Post Office has the coconuts and boxes of pens to decorated and address "the nuts."

This has got to be one of the most fun things you could do. Imagine the surprise of the recipient when your decorated coconut arrives in their mailbox from Hawaii. I wish I could see the surprise, not just imagine it. Postmaster Gary is so into it !!! and it greatly boosts the stamp sales from his tiny post office.... More

We posted a nut - literally decorated a coconut and sent it via the mail to unsuspecting friends. Not sure you can post it to Canada, but once again, it was a quirky local friendly thing to do at the post office near the airport in Ho’olehua. The postmaster is the friendliest postal employee in the USA!!!! He also told... More

We made this a destination after a morning of whale watching… We got there just after the post office open from their lunch break. The coconuts are free and there were bins and bins of sharpie markers. We only pay for the postage. Was a lot of fun to do my husband and I had a blast dreaming up what... More

Fun to send coconuts home to the friends. They furnish all the color markers you need to make a masterpiece.

I highly recommend. Best thing we did on the island. Family and friends are gonna love it. We took ours to the beach and painted them up and dropped them back off a couple hours later.
