Wavecrest is 13 miles from Kaunakakai, and about a 20 to 25 minute drive. As
you head east from Kaunakakai you will notice the vegetation getting more
luxuriant. By the time you pull off the two-lane road at mile marker 13 you
will have entered the "tropics" and be welcomed by the beautiful landscaping
of the resort.
The resort is on five green, landscaped, waterfront acres. On the grounds
you can enjoy a pool with cabana, tennis, two gas barbecues, plenty of room
and lounges and tables for just plain relaxing. The pool and cabana are
located right on the oceanfront. There is enjoyable walking right out the
entrance on the lightly traveled road or trails in the hills to the east of
the resort. There are three, three-story, main buildings occupied by mostly
seasonal owners. We have never seen full occupancy even in the busy winter
This is one of the only shores in Hawaii with a barrier reef. The reef keeps
the waves down so there is generally calm water in the foreshore with the
constantly changing reef break about one-fourth-mile off shore. From late
December to April, Humpback whales return to these waters between the
islands. They are often seen right off shore.
Please check visitor information and Molokai tour pages to help
you plan your trip and for many available activities.
You can also check The Molokai Dispatch for the local weekly paper so you can get a glimpse of island news and life.
