Our second day excursion on Moloka`i was out to the wetter and greener east end of the island, along the southern shore, to the end of the road, a place named Halawi (ha-la-vee).
On the way we passed many fish ponds and little pocket beaches.
This photograph shows the construction of fish pond walls, this pond appearing to be actively cared for and managed.
The road gradually narrowed down to a twisting one lane sometimes right along the cliff edge with no rail or wall, making driving a bit nervy. Climbing away from the coast into ranchlands, and descending very steeply to a cove, we were not prepared for the beauty of the landscape (the feature image).
There were few people at the cove, mostly locals swimming, fishing, and surfing. It was hot but the ocean was refreshing!
On the drive back, we stopped at an overlook with an expansive view to the southeast towards the island of Maui.
