This Empty Beach In Hawaii Is Worth A Visit From Any Corner Of The State
The Hawaiian Islands are home to 750 miles of stunning coastline — putting the Aloha State behind Alaska, Florida, and California when it comes to coastline length. And while among that coastline you will find countless rock formations and sea cliffs, the beaches are what truly matters. And while we love the islands’ most popular beaches as much as the next person, it is the secluded sands that catch our eye the most. So, instead of fighting tourists for the best spot on Waikiki or Poipu beaches on your next beach day, why not head to this gorgeous top secret beach — if you’re on the island of Molokai, that is.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

If you’re interested in other beaches on the small island of Molokai, don’t forget about Papohaku Beach. Measuring in at nearly three miles long — and 100 yards wide — Papohaku is not only the largest beach on Molokai but it is easily one of Hawaii’s longest, uninterrupted white sand beaches.
