    This was an amazing experience! Be prepared for it to last the full five hours. I thoroughly enjoyed the first hour of Greg sharing parts of his culture and family history coupled with photographs. I don't think I'll look at anything that I do in Hawaii the same ever again now that I've been given a glimpse into the "authentic Hawaiian culture" that is still alive in the Halawa Valley.

    Greg's son, nephew, and cousin did a wonderful job helping with the river crossings (more on this later) and were a wealth of knowledge being able to answer just about any question that we asked. They made my mom (just turned 60 and hates water) more comfortable crossing the unexpected rivers.

    A thing to note: this hike is not super easy (but nor is it super difficult), you are going up and over obstacles the entire way up. It is roughly 2+ miles from the picnic area that you meet at. There isn't much elevation gain, but lots you can trip on so you have to pay attention to where you walk. Also, depending upon the rain, these are definitely river crossings. My husband and I started with hiking shoes but quickly changed into high quality water shoes with rubber soles for the remainder of the hike. I would highly recommend this option so you don't have to carry your hiking shoes, but make sure that they are higher quality ones that have a rubber sole (not foam). The river crossings were higher than usual due to rain, but be prepared to cross in knee deep water with current. As mentioned the guides did an amazing job getting people across without incident, but that was something we weren't expecting when we booked. I also wouldn't recommend this for young children, I'd probably keep it to a capable 7 year old and up, otherwise you might end up carrying them across the rivers which looks dangerous.

    Overall, an AMAZING experience that I would do again in a heart beat. My husband and I loved every minute of it. Don't let the price tag sway you, it is well worth the amount paid.

    Pick up a coconut at the coconut grove (they are just laying on the ground), drive up to the post office and ask for the coloring pens. Then you go out back, start drawing and addressing the coconut. It is a fun thing to do and whoever gets the coconut in the mail will be surprised.

    Unfortunately the colony is closed at this time. Hopefully it will be re-opened but who knows when. This was our reason for coming to Molokai. When it does reopen we will just fly in for the day.
    The overlook parking area is where you also park for the phallic rock. Be certain to do both.

    Don’t listen to anyone else that says they can do this is a rental car. Nope! Luckily we had a Jeep Cherokee. Take the road near the cemetery and keep going. When the road gets to your first Y in the road, stay right. The first couple of miles aren’t that bad but then the road starts to get really rutted as soon as you start to climb. The 5 mile mark you will see a gate. If you have any doubt about your ability to drive the road or your vehicle, use this area to turn around now. The road gets worse from here until you get to a parking area at the overlook. You’ll park here and hike the rest. The boardwalk and surrounding area are wet and the weather can change quickly. Bring rain gear. Once you get to the end there are a few places to have lunch and the view of the valley all the way to the sea is amazing. It’s worth it! Remember to keep track of time because you have to go back down the road and it would be much harder in the dark.

    CHECK THE WEATHER PRIOR TO GOING. DO NOT GO UP THE HILL IF IT HAS BEEN RAINING.

    I have been to the islands over 20 times and this was one of the best experiences ever. Excellent talk on Hawaiian traditions by Greg and hike led by Gene. Waterfall awesome! Hike a bit longer than expected/advertised.

    Murphys Beach is also referred to as 20 mile beach, as it sits at the 20 mile marker on the road. Beach area is protected by the fringe reef so there is no big surf here. There is shade, sand is nice, and it’s really easy to park right up next to where you want to sit. This is not a beach to boogie board, swim, or surf. Very shallow with rocks and coral. Generally ther is enough sand in the water to get out about thigh deep and take a dip to cool off. Surprisingly there are few people here as it’s one of the easier beaches to access on Molokai. Water clarity is clear and if you are okay with coral and rocks 12-13 “ under you while snorkeling, it’s fair. Most people say snorkeling in the wintertime on Molokai isn’t very good because of the winter swell and I totally agree.

    Great produce! Bought Kumo Farms pineapple, papaya, and fresh salad greens. All excellent. Worth every penny. A must visit. Beautiful flowers available too.

    This little cove is way down at the end of road. It is very small and very secluded. A good place to swim and sit in the sun. I did not have snorkel gear with me but I would think that it would be a good place to snorkel. If you have a kayak it would be a very good place to launch. The waves do not break on the beach on a calm day getting out into the ocean would be very easy.

    This park has the overlook of the lower peninsula as well as the phallic rock. It also has restrooms! A great place to visit.

    Decent place to stop for a few mins - nothing much to see there and do around this place. You can spend a few mins taking some pictures..

    The snorkling here was some of the finest we have met. The number of fish is amazing. Some of the largest sea turtles we have ever seen is here also. The colors of the coral are brilliant.

    The walk in can't be more than a 1/3 mile, with a bit of an elevation gain. But a fun place to take a photo.
    Where you park is the same as the overlook for the peninsula. So do both.

    Some of the nicest beaches on this side of Molokai require 4 wheel drive or hours of hiking. This beach, reminiscent of similar beaches in Wailea, Maui, has the need accoutrements of civilization (a store to buy drinks, parking, showers) while still beholden to the wild vagaries of Molokai waters. In the winter, only for experts. In any season, a great place to experience the green flash of sunset, with Oahu in the background.
