The Scenic Drive to Halawa Valley, Molokai
Home to spectacular vistas, lush sea cliffs and cascading waterfalls, exploring the ancient Halawa Valley is one of the most popular things to do on the Hawaiian island of Molokai (did you watch the short video from our hike to Moa’ula waterfalls?).
But in order to reach the Halawa Valley, one must first travel 48 km’s (30 miles) from the main town of Kaunakakai to the most eastern point of Molokai. It’s a beautiful drive that passes secluded beaches, rocky bluffs, oceanfront villages and dense forest before it descends several kilometers down a series of windy switchbacks.
It’s often compared to the legendary ‘Road to Hana’ on Maui, only a much shorter version.
