When I told people in Maui I was heading to Moloka’i, a small island off Maui, for a week they were puzzled as to what I would do on the island for a week, insisting I only needed two days.
I guess I would find out.
As soon as I arrived at Hotel Moloka’i I knew things would be different. Moloka’i isn’t about having a luxe vacation. Don’t expect 5-star restaurants but enjoy that you can wear flip flops to dinner. Things are more laid-back and casual. This really is the Most Hawaiian Island.
Although I have never been to Hawaii before it seems that Moloka’i must be like how the other islands were before all the tourism. There are only 7000 people living on the island and it can be described in one word.
You can be on a beautiful beach and the only footprints you see are your own.
Go see the famous phallic rock.
Hang out in coconut grove.
You can hike and not hate it!
I am so excited to share my week in Moloka’i with you. But let’s keep it our little secret because Moloka’i is special and I want to keep it that way.
Disclosure: I was the guest of the Moloka’i Visitors Bureau but they did not request that I write a positive review or discover how wonderful this island is and how much it has to offer tourists.
