What travellers are saying
- This was an incredible cultural experience from the source. Greg is actively in position to carry the torch of teaching people about their true Hawaiian experience. The roots of their family in this valley go back to when there was a thriving community prior to the 1946 tsunami, where all survived due to working together to escape the waters.
Fascinating stories from am engaging, charismatic family, I wish I had unlimited time and opportunity to listen. I can't emphasize enough what an amazing opportunity this was.
I feel like many other reviews glossed over the reality of the hike to the waterfall. For young, fit hikers, this is probably what I would consider a moderate hike. For anyone whose "fitness" is challenged-- whether by health, condition, agree, etc., I would call this difficult. There is some clambering over boulders, jumping from rock to rock, wading, etc. There's ducking under branches, getting over fallen logs, etc., So requires strength, flexibility and agility.
Tanner and Devak are impressively patient and knowledgable.
Make sure to do your due diligence on planning the time it takes to drive there and back. The drive is amazingly beautiful, but is a one lane road for the last few miles.
There is supposedly a good ahi sandwich available at a place near mile marker 16, but it was closed by the time we got by there on our way back.Written 23 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Quiet, secluded, large waves and simply a wonderful experience is a description of this location. There is a public access area for patrons along with the homes on the beach. That stated very few people were seen on the beach.
One of the days whales about a 1/2-1 mile off shore pods of whales were seen jumping out of the water. Could spend a whole day there enjoying the water and seclusion.Written 29 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The views of the ocean, town and mountainside were simply amazing. The waves and their sound even from this distance called out the power of the ocean. Overall a wonderful experience.Written 29 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Pick up a coconut at the coconut grove (they are just laying on the ground), drive up to the post office and ask for the coloring pens. Then you go out back, start drawing and addressing the coconut. It is a fun thing to do and whoever gets the coconut in the mail will be surprised.Written 17 April 2022
- Absolutely gorgeous! It is a national park for a reason! Make Sur eyou take the time to check out this place!Written 19 December 2021
- Don’t listen to anyone else that says they can do this is a rental car. Nope! Luckily we had a Jeep Cherokee. Take the road near the cemetery and keep going. When the road gets to your first Y in the road, stay right. The first couple of miles aren’t that bad but then the road starts to get really rutted as soon as you start to climb. The 5 mile mark you will see a gate. If you have any doubt about your ability to drive the road or your vehicle, use this area to turn around now. The road gets worse from here until you get to a parking area at the overlook. You’ll park here and hike the rest. The boardwalk and surrounding area are wet and the weather can change quickly. Bring rain gear. Once you get to the end there are a few places to have lunch and the view of the valley all the way to the sea is amazing. It’s worth it! Remember to keep track of time because you have to go back down the road and it would be much harder in the dark.
CHECK THE WEATHER PRIOR TO GOING. DO NOT GO UP THE HILL IF IT HAS BEEN RAINING.Written 16 March 2022
- Dick Wheeler is wonderful. He allowed us to come tour his farm, let us pick plumeria and taught us how to make a lei while telling us so many wonderful things about Molokai. This is a small island with locals that are very proud of their island and strive to keep it from becoming what the other Hawaiian islands are - full of tourists. Come with respect and enjoy all that the island has to offer.Written 30 August 2022
- This is a wonderful beach to go to where there are not too many people especially during the week. You are able to relax and enjoy your time without having a backed loud beachWritten 16 July 2022
- I love shopping here for fresh organic produce straight from the source. We love the papayas!! It is a must have! I also like the salad mix packages & other items. Etty is spunky & always a familiar, friendly face!Written 3 September 2022
- We got here while exploring Molokaii.
The church is part of a long history and tells a great story.
Worth to stop for a few minutes.Written 19 November 2022
- If you are visiting Molokai, which you should, this is an ABSOLUTE MUST! Greg and his father gave is an amazing talk regarding the history of the valley and then we hiked out to the falls. The hike is a moderate hike and you not only get to experience the beauty of the the island, but hear of the history along the way. Once at the falls you spend time swimming and enjoying nature at its most pristine. This was such an incredible experience. Thank you to Greg and his family for a once in a lifetime journey!Written 15 July 2022
- This little cove is way down at the end of road. It is very small and very secluded. A good place to swim and sit in the sun. I did not have snorkel gear with me but I would think that it would be a good place to snorkel. If you have a kayak it would be a very good place to launch. The waves do not break on the beach on a calm day getting out into the ocean would be very easy.Written 17 April 2022
- Me and the misses came around here during our 3,5 week tour of the Hawaiian islands.
This museum is great as it gives a perfect insight in the history of the Mill and the island itself together with the awefull happenings at the Leper Colony.
You start the tour with a couple of video`s showing you the origins of the Mill and how it was established etc. We we're only with 4 people.
Later you can wander around the plenty of photo`s hanging in the museum all telling you the story of what happened at the Leper Colony.
We had a great time and it taught us a lot about Molokaii`s history.
The staffmember helping was a great elderly gentleman and we loved his enthousiasm.
Do not miss out on this if you visit Molokaii and want to know more about its history!Written 19 November 2022
- The walk in can't be more than a 1/3 mile, with a bit of an elevation gain. But a fun place to take a photo.
Where you park is the same as the overlook for the peninsula. So do both.Written 17 April 2022
- This beach is gorgeous , its just the perfect place to relax and take it all in , lovely and sandy and only a couple of other people in sight , I can't stress how beautiful this area is , a must to visit.Written 6 June 2022
