Moloka’i, Hawaii: Visit “Old Hawaii” and Explore Dramatic Sea Cliffs on Island near Maui
One of Yahoo’s “10 Amazing Undiscovered Islands,” Moloka’i is a thin Hawaiian island just off the coast of Maui. The island is known for its dramatic sea cliffs—the world’s highest—and pristine white-sand beaches. For many years, Moloka’i residents resisted the idea of turning their quiet island into a tourist destination, fearing overdevelopment. But a new strategy, focused around ecological tourism, has helped the island to adopt successful sustainable travel practices. Their efforts were praised in a report by National Geographic, which sums up Moloka’i nicely: “[The island] seems like old Hawaii.”
For an easy day trip, head over to Maui via a 90-minute ferry ride. Voted the best island in the United States by readers of Condé Nast Traveler, Maui is considered one of the Pacific’s most beautiful spots and a favorite among Hollywood's elite. The town of Lahaina, along Maui’s western coast, served as Hawaii’s royal capital before 1845. Arguably, Maui's biggest attraction is Haleakala, the world's largest dormant volcano, which technically encompasses 75% of the island. A paved road leads up to Haleakala's summit, where you can stretch your legs and walk around the rim of the lunar-like volcanic crater. The towering peak is a playground for bicyclists, who coast down the slopes all the way to the beach town of Paia.
