The only town on the west side of Molokai, Maunaloa is a former plantation village and has been rebuilt around a master plan based on preserving the rural village environment. There are restaurants and shopping available here as well as peace and quiet.

This small village occupies an elevated position about 1 mile/1.5km from the western end of road 460. Founded in the 1920s by the Dole Company for its pineapple plantation workers, Maunaloa died 50 years later when pineapple growing was abandoned owing to field irrigation problems. For a decade it became a ghost town. Only then did a few artists settle here and they have brought the place to life again as a center of craft-work. Although new buildings have been erected, some houses remain today as examples of Maunaloa's past as a typical plantation settlement.

This charming little village is set in the hills on the West End of Molokai. There are nice beaches at this end of the island. Also, be sure to visit the famous Big Wind Kite Factory and see their amazing selection of quality kites and colorful windsocks. You can go on a tour of the factory or take a free kite-flying lesson with the friendly owner. Many of their kites are handmade right in Molokai.

Fly your kite at your vacation rental on the island of Molokai! Accommodation options are vacation rentals, lodging in condo rentals, apartment rentals or home rentals.
