The Molokai Island
Ideal for exploring the local culture, the Molokai Island provides an opportunity to experience adventures and plunge into the story. Most Hawaiians - more than 50% of the population of the island of Molokai are indigenous peoples. The local residents are trying to consistently maintain and protect their land and culture, not hindering the tourism development .There is an atmosphere of love everywhere and friendliness, and travelers can find true feelings and hospitality here, and not the usual greeting for the money. Saint Damien, a young priest, who in 1873 traveled to a remote peninsula here, Kalaupapa to care for people with leprosy, was recognized as the first saint of America. Today, the fantastic beauty of the peninsula is a national park and visiting it will be one of the best adventures in Hawaii. The beauty of the local nature attracts many visitors. Here you can admire the world's highest sea cliffs, the mist-covered tropical forests, the hidden waterfalls and the deserted beaches. And these are just some of the exotic reasons that beckon on this island.
