Weather in Molokai is pleasant throughout the year. Year-round temperatures average around 75º F (23.9º C). At Molokai’s higher elevations it can get a bit cooler and wetter, so pack a light jacket. The West End of Molokai is dryer and more arid while the mountainous East End is wetter and greener.
Traveling on MolokaiIt’s best to rent a car on Molokai. The island is easy to navigate, with only one two-lane highway stretching across it from end to end. However, some excursions require the use of a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Quantities are limited, so make reservations in advance.
Remember to ease off the gas pedal here. As the sign says on your way out of the airport: “Slow down, you’re in Molokai.”
