Enjoy shell collecting and solitude on a beach where yours are the only footprints left in the sand. Swim, snorkel or just sunbathe. Or, just finish that book while lounging at the pool. Take a bike ride on roads that know no traffic or a hike to an isolated waterfall or deserted beach.

A visit to Molokai, "the Friendly Isle", is a must if you are a lover of Hawaii, but wish to avoid the hustle and bustle of the more populated islands. Located 30 minutes by air from Oahu, Molokai is an island that appears "frozen in time". Here, you can relax and experience peace and tranquility surrounded by spectacular natural beauty while exploring the island at your own pace--truly reminiscent of "Old Hawaii". It is the 5th largest island in the archipelago and is situated in the center of the 8 major islands--25 miles southeast of Oahu. From the eastern end of the island, it is only 8 miles across the Pailolo channel to Maui.
Molokai boasts a rich history of culture and Hawaiian practices. The population of the island is about 7000 residents. Nearly 40% are determined to be of Hawaiian descent. Thus, it has been dubbed the "Hawaiian" island. Legend tells us that Laka, the goddess of the hula, gave birth to the dance on Molokai. It is recognized every year in June at "Ka Hula Piko", a grand event celebrating the birth of the hula where visitors come from near and far to experience and pay homage to the ancient tradition. On an interesting side note, our grandfather, R. Alex Anderson was a famous composer from Hawaii who wrote songs for hula. Among many of his many songs were "Lovely Hula Hands" and "Mele Kalikimaka"! You may enjoy some of his sheet music proudly on display in our home.
Not too much has changed on Molokai when it comes to growth and modernization. A slow paced lifestyle continues to exist and is enjoyed by the local people--where they proudly boast that there isn't a traffic signal anywhere on the island!
