Maunaloa Highway (Hwy 460) (view panorama) leads from Kaunakakai to Maunaloa, a 16-mile (26 km) long scenic drive through the central part of the island, past Molokai Airport. Along the way you'll enjoy views of Molokai's south shore with its azure blue nearshore waters, open grasslands and mountains.
If you're coming from Maunaloa and drive towards Kaunakakai, you'll have a great view of the East Molokai volcano in the distance, as well as the island's central plateau. If you're driving towards Maunaloa, the highway winds uphill through the reddish-brown and arid landscape surrounding the West Molokai volcano.
