Molokai Real Estate / Molokai Homes for sale
While Molokai is a separate island, it is part of Maui County, which is why it is part of the Maui MLS. Home to the highest sea cliffs in the world, Molokai is 38 by 10 miles (61 by 16 km) in size with a land area of 260 square miles (673.40 km2), making it the fifth largest of the main Hawaiian Islands. Molokai is home to about 7,500 residents. The south shore of Molokai boasts the longest fringing reef in the U.S. The fishing from Molokai is also usually very good. The eastern half is covered with lush wet forests that get over 300 in (7,600 mm) of rain per year. The high elevation forests are populated by native ohia lehua (Metrosideros polymorpha) trees and an extremely diverse endemic flora and fauna in the understory. Much of the summit area is protected by the Nature Conservancy's Kamakou and Pelekunu valley preserves. Kaunakakai is the largest town on the island of Molokai.
