Jump to: navigation, search

Kuanakakai is a small town on the island of Molokai. Sometimes it is considered to be the "capital" of Molokai, but officially the whole island is in the County of Maui.

Get in[edit]

By Plane There are multiple daily flights from Honolulu on Pacific Wings for $29 each way or on IslandAir. Pacific Air's primary aircraft is a 9 passenger, 1 engine Cessna Caravan. Seats on Island Air range from $30 on up. The airport is about 5 miles outside of the town of Kaunakakai.

By Ferry Daily from Lahaina to Kaunakakai, Molokai. $85 round trip.

Get around[edit]

The island is about 17 miles long and 10 miles across. A rental car is necessary to get around.

Do[edit][add listing]

Walk down the 3 blocks of this sleepy Hawaiian town and visit the various shops. Go to the pier where the ferry departs from. Eat in on of the restaurants listed below.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Kaunakakai is not a tourist shopping mecca. In town itself you will find a couple grocery stores of the Mom and Pop variety. There is a drug store, ice cream store, health food store, and several sundry stores.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Do not look for the typical fast food in Kaunakakai or, for that matter, on Molokai. There is one single Subway Sandwitch shop, the Molokai Pizza Cafe and the Molokai Drive-In. Hotel Molokai is right on the water front and offers a full menu with special local entertainment every Friday evening. For a special experience try the Kanemitsu's Bakery. People wait in line for their Hawaiian bread and cream pies are renown.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Hotel Molokai is a great place to relax with your favorite drink, listen to the entertainment and watch the waves. In the distance you can see Lanaii.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Well, we are back to the Hotel Molokai. Do not expect a 5-Star Ritz Carlton. It fits in well with the laid back nature of Molokai. Additionally there are multiple Bed & Breakfasts around the town.

Get out[edit]

Same way you got in.
