Hula Dance Originated in Molokai

Aug 17, 2007
One of the smaller Hawaiian Islands is Molokai. It is thirty eight miles long and ten miles at its widest point, you better believe that travelling around Molokai is relatively simple and getting lost is not usually an option. The Airport is located in the south region of the Island.

This island still seems to be very much caught up in the past, and to this day its local inhabitants resist the development that has swept over and changed the other Hawaiian Islands.

So if you are thinking Molokai might be able to offer you a vibrant nightlife or high rise condos laced with spas, retreats then you might want to reconsider your travel plans.

Molokai, Hawaii offers you the opportunity to get away from the daily pressures of life, and escape into simplicity and beauty. The island has one hotel, a couple of condo rentals, and one up market lodge all of which compliment this escape.

The Hotel design allows the islands beauty to casually seep in. The condo rentals have been kept basic yet functional and the Lodge is sited on an up and running fifty four thousand acre ranch.

The islands available activities go one step further in making sure you stay out under the tropical sky. One of the most notable experiences is the Mule Ride, which not only allows riders to see the inner sanctums of the island, but also takes them back in time to when Molokai was once home to one of the worlds most recognized leper colonies and introduces them to the man that treated many of the sufferers, Father Damien

Mule rides to horse rides and roundups Molokai is also home to a very strong paniolo culture. The paniolo is the Hawaiian equivalent to what many people would call a cowboy. To this very day you can see true workings in the ranch, herding cattle and walking the islands many trails.

Hiking the area around Maunaloa is home to a number of trails including, the Mountain Trail, the Temples Hike and the Ancient Trail.

Hawaii beaches are playgrounds to a whole host of water sportsmen and Molokai is no exception. Visitors to the island can enjoy a multitude of activities from open water kayaking and snorkelling to scuba diving and surfing.

The hula dance originated in Molokai and is where some of Hawaiis best dancers come from. An annual festival is held in May.
