Welcome to East Molokaʻi
Unlike the arid west, this is tropical Molokaʻi, with palm trees arching over the road, and banana, papaya, guava and passion fruits hanging from the lush foliage, ripe for the picking. As you drive you'll catch glimpses of ancient fishponds, the neighboring islands of Lanaʻi and Maui, stoic old wooden churches, modest family homes, beaches and much more. But don't take your eye off the road for long or you'll run over a dog sleeping on the yellow line.
Still, each curve yields a new vista. The final climb up and over into the remote Halawa Valley is breathtaking.
