The Beauty Of Molokai

Feb 21, 2008
Looking out from the view in Maui, you can look across the ocean and see the remote island of Molokai. Although it is visible they are miles apart in beliefs, traditions, and culture. Even though they are related islands, the two Hawaiian Islands are worlds apart. In Maui there is a very high tourist rate and an urbanized twist to the perfect tropical fairyland. In Molokai you will find the same beauty but everything slows down because the natives there want it to stay that way. There are many lighthouses on the Hawaiian Islands but none more spectacular than the one that sits on the shoreline of Molokai. Tourists and natives alike agree that this lighthouse not only has a long history behind it but is also the most beautiful. In the park where this lighthouse is located there is also a rain forest, a volcanic crater, and caves as well. Everything in Molokai is natural and there is no pollution. The air is fresh and clean. The trip is non conventional and doesn't offer leis for souvenirs just the kind of pure tranquility that people read about in books. Undeveloped civilization is prominent but by no means will you do without a thing. Everything that you would want or need is ample just in a very non traditional manner. To get a real experience of the true beauty that Molokai does offer, you can take a helicopter tour which will take you right above Molokai's waterfall which is the tallest in all of Hawaii and past the amazing sea cliffs that are so prominent of this island. Molokai is a step back in time and there is a chance that you won't want to leave once you are there. Even with all of the remoteness that Molokai hangs on to there are a few concessions that have been made including an eighteen hole golf course that is ocean side. Car and bicycle rentals, a few restaurants, and some tours as well. Molokai residents try at all costs to live off of the land and sea and the residents of the island do whatever it takes to protect their natural resources. This is how the land on Molokai has managed to stay wild and almost untouched. There are many parts of Molokai that have not been changed or unpreserved by man for many years. Some of the foods that are exclusive to Molokai are their sensational breads, macadamia nuts, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, and sweet potatoes that are purple in color. There is not much of a party atmosphere on Molokai and it is just purely laid back but is certain that every person that you pass will look you directly in the eye and bid you a hello. If you happen to stop and engage in any conversation with them, the slightest insinuation will have them telling stories that only the natives of Molokai could tell. Watching the sunset is magnificent and as you peer into the night time skies you will feel as if you can actually reach out and grab a star. It is simply gorgeous.
