Often overlooked in favour of more commercial destinations Maui and O'ahu, the small island of Moloka'i is a pleasing mishmash of rural charm and coastal beauty. The island is formed by two extinct volcanoes, both of which serve as excellent hiking spots today. While the north shore is fringed by the world’s steepest sea cliffs, carpeted with sprawling green valleys, the southern side is a fishing hotspot. Else, you can go about exploring the heritage of Native Hawaiian ancestry at the island. Papohaku beach and Kalaupapa National Historical Park are some other interesting spots you can visit. All in all, Moloka'i’s stunning scenery more than makes up for the lack of sophisticated tourist infrastructure. Scroll below for the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Moloka'i, Hawaii – get your stay sorted and experience the beauty of this gorgeous destination.
Offering swimming pool as well as private beach access, this one-bedroom apartment is a great option for a family of four.

Moloka'i's beguiling beauty
Moloka'i is merely 61 km (38 mi) long and 16 km (10 mi) wide, and is nowhere as developed as some of the other Hawaiian islands. Although, don’t be mistaken by this modest fact. This otherwise tiny island exudes coastal charm and an enchanting vibe, along with plenty of outdoor adventures that will delight all. Visit this island to see the beauty with your own eyes.
