The Halawa Valley is on the eastern edge of the Hawaiian island of Molokai. The area used to be the most populated part of Molokai, but it no longer is. The valley is still one of the most attractive places for tourists, because it offers some great beaches and so many historical landmarks. Here is a list of the best sights and beaches in the Halawa Valley in Molokai that you don’t want to miss.

• The road. Route 450 heading east to the Halawa Valley is a sight in and of itself. It’s only 30 miles long, but it typically takes about an hour-and-a-half to drive. That’s because it’s so winding. You need to be careful when driving because you’re bordering on cliffs that drop off right into the ocean. But that’s also what makes it so fascinating. Enjoy the ride out there.
• One Ali-I Beach Park. This is a very rarely-used park with a great view. You can camp here, but you need to know that it’s right along the road, so it often feels a bit cramped. You can see some nice waters and enjoy your time here, however. It’s a great place to take a break.
• Halawa Bay. This is an area that is amazing to see. The soil is rich, the water is crystal clear, and it’s purely a terrific place to relax under the sun. Take your time at this location. It’s worth exploring a bit. When you first look down into the valley, you’ll see calm waters and a tranquil scene. However, if you go for a stroll along the bay, you’ll soon see a vastly different picture. The surf turns nasty not too far from the initial view into the valley. Water pounds the rocks for a perspective that is unique.
• Moaula Falls. This is one of the most famous water falls in all of Hawaii. It is certainly worth the walk to it. It will take you 10 minutes to get there. At the falls, water tumbles some 250 feet down along rocks. It’s truly a spectacular scene. The stream below is amazing in and of itself. The water is so pure there and it’s truly a great place to relax and enjoy nature.
