We were not lucky during our visit, as after heavy rains, this beach couldn't be used- it was muddy and water was brown and murky. Almost impossible to get rid of the red mud.

Secluded, with slightly more protected water than the rest of the west shore. There were no other people nearby when I went. I wish I could have stayed here my entire trip.

Dixie beach is a tucked away hidden gem on the west side of Molokai. At the end of the road, you will find a short driveway to the parking lot that has a shower and a trash can for your convenience. It's just a short...More

Dixie Maru is a small pocket beach close to Papohaku that is more popular. I'm not sure why that would be as it only covers a couple of acres and had more people on it than all of Papohaku. That being said it is still...More

Cute little beach at the very end of the road. You can't go any farther west than this. Has a portapotty if you need one too. Had a seal swim right up to us and followed us up on the beach.
