The Island Center - Molokai
The plains of middle Molokai are big sky country, mostly made up of family farms. The main feature around here is Kaunakakai, the island's one true town. The commercial strip, about two blocks long, is decidedly low-tech and hand-built. Here you'll find the island's two gas stations, most of its eateries, and the Molokai visitors Association. (Visitors are urged to stop by for free and appropriate guidance.)
Small as it is, Kaunakakai has all the basics (grocery stores, a pharmacy and medical clinic) and more - wines and spirits, bike rentals, a health food store, and a fish-and-dive center. Strike up conversations. Dont be shy.
