Maunaloa is a village on the west-central side of the island of Molokai. This quaint town has restaurants, a theater, a general store and post office, but no traffic lights and no crowds! What you will find here is some of the most spectacular sunsets on the islands, and some of the world's highest cliffs and most beautiful beaches! All forms of outdoors recreation can be found in and around Maunaloa, such as swimming, fishing and snorkeling, sailing, hiking, golf and horseback riding. Three-mile long Papohaku Beach is bordered by low sand dunes, and in summer months, it is calm and excellent for swimming and sun bathing. Maunaloa is also home to the Molokai Ranch Wildlife Safari. Visitors take a two-hour tour of this 1,000-acre game preserve and see zebras, giraffes, elands, wild turkeys and more. Food and snacks are available on the tour and reservations are required. Maunaloa offers a chance for a peaceful Hawaiian vacation, away from the tourist traps of the other islands. You can be as active as you want, or relax on your own secluded beach. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of this tropical paradise as you stroll through town and chat with the friendly locals. The "aloha" spirit is alive here, and Maunaloa welcomes visitors.
