Hence, they used fishponds to provide the needed protein. Maintenance was and is a continual issue for fishponds. The waves tear-up the walls. You may see work in progress as local... More

We had a wonderful picnic lunch on a table under the trees, looking out at the water. Very peaceful, quiet spot the day we were there.

My hubby and I rented bikes and happened across this park. It was beautifully stunning. We spent about an hour here just taking it all in. We were here in December of 2012, but it touched my soul and hasn't let go.

We hung out here on day trip to the island and it was so quiet and peaceful. We got in the shallow water of the fishpond and enjoyed catching some sun.

Minutes from Molokai Shores condos. Clean grounds + sheltered picnic area. Nice beach. Loved the fishpond and found its history and purpose interesting.
