This is a beautiful, long, sandy beach, but it was windy the day we visited here and it felt like sandblast beach. Definitely not pleasant to hang out. Also, swimming is discouraged as it can have treacherous currents. On a day that is not too...More

Incredibly beautiful and deserted white sand beach on the west end. The large grains of unpacked sand can make for quite a walking workout! It's almost eerie when you find yourself alone, as our frequent trips there, we rarely saw anybody else. It certainly has...More

This beach is incredibly beautiful and back to nature. You can spend the whole day there and not see another person. There are public bathrooms and free parking. It also has a wonderful view of Lanai.

We were the only people on this glorious Molokai beach!! It's easy to get to (as long as you have a car). There's a beautiful park with tables, a clean restroom and NOBODY there! It's worth the trip!

If you want a beach for walking and reading...this is it. Completely unspoiled with no one else around. This is not a swimming beach but is gorgeous. The sunsets are amazing. Facilities not kept up.
