Central Molokaʻi is really two places. In the west there's the dry and gently rolling Hoʻolehua Plains, which stretch from the remote and rare sand dunes of Moʻomomi Beach to the former plantation town and current coffee-growing center of Kualapuʻu. To the east, the terrain rises sharply to the misty, ancient forests of Kamakou. Enjoy one of the island's great adventures here by going on a hike that takes you back in evolutionary time.
Molokaʻi's second most popular drive (after the Halawa Valley drive in the east) runs from Kualapuʻu up Hwy 470 to Palaʻau State Park, site of the Kalaupapa Overlook, where you'll find one of the island's most captivating views.
