Kaunakakai is the largest town on the Hawaiian island of Molokaʻi. Far from being just your typical beach resort, Kaunakakai has a certain something about it. In fact, Kaunakakai remains very much the same as it was when constructed in the early 1900s as a paniolo -- a Hawaiian cowboy town. Its ramshackle buildings and cute wooden structures seemingly transport visitors back in time.
Travelers can enjoy a walk along Kaunakakai Harbor to watch the sunset, and follow the boardwalk to the end of the wooden pier. This is the largest pier in the state of Hawaii and a great place to look across to the sea.
Ala Malama Avenue is the main street than runs through Kaunakakai and plenty of wonderful restaurants, bars and boutique shops can be found along its length.
Winter is the best time to visit Kaunakakai -- between December and March.
