Travel to Hawaii: Molokai Hawaii Vacations
by Patrick Remington
Not every traveler is looking for a tanning-on-a-hammock type of vacation. Some would like adventure and activities, while others would prefer a more relaxing beach vacation. While many of the Hawaiian Islands are perfect for the relaxed traveler, Molokai is perfect for the adventurous.
Molokai makes for a truly exotic Hawaiian vacation—not your typical run of the mill tourist attraction.
The island is pristine and has no traffic, traffic lights or tall buildings. Better still, crowds of pushy tourists just do not exist on this unspoiled island. Molokai seems more like Hawaii when it first became a state, before modern civilization and tourism took over, but with all the civility you would expect from resorts that host travel to Hawaii.
Things To Do on Molokai
There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy when visiting Hawaii, and the island of Molokai is no exception. Visit one of the placid fish ponds and fish all day long. The Kaunakakai pier is one of the best fishing piers anywhere in Hawaii and any traveler is welcome to fish here. Another option for serious fisherman is to take a deep-sea fishing trip with experienced sailors and go for the real big fish.
While on Molokai, be sure to visit Kalaupapa National Park. You can take a mule ride and enjoy the switchback trails that are in the mountains overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean. When you are done, visit one of the states longest white-sand beaches in Papohaku Beach. Unlike many other beaches on the other popular Hawaiian Islands, Papohaku Beach is not overrun by tourists. When you would like to scavenge for seashells, take a swim in the warm tropical waters, or just read a good book, you can do so without being interrupted.
Weather and the Best Time to Visit
The tropical weather of Molokai is postcard perfect. With the dry season running from May– October and November—April being the wet season, you’d be surprised to know that the highs still average in the 80's year round. The wet season is just a tad bit cooler and will have a few passing rainstorms from time to time. Regardless, the weather beats the snow and freezing temperatures of the mainland United States all winter long.
Check with popular travel agents like Expedia, Orbitz or Apple Vacations for great travel deals and discounts during the less popular times of year to visit.
Moloki is the spot for you if you enjoy being outdoors and appreciate the utopian beauty of nature. With many Hawaii vacations options available, you will definitely find an adventurous and relaxing vacation on Molokai.
