molokai | getting around

Public transportation on the Big Island is essentially nil. On Oahu, public transportation is great in Honolulu but a car is required outside of it. Maui's Hana Highway is full of hidden gems; on Kauai and Molokai, same situation. Because there's such varied geography across all the islands, it's actually best to rent a vehicle that provides full access to everything Hawai'i has to offer. 4 x 4's are essential if you're planning on skiing Mauna Kea's summit, or a sweet RV is great if you want to roam around with your bikes, a grill and a map. Don't forget, even though you're on vacation seatbelts are required by state law for all front seat passengers, backseat passengers under age 17 and car seats must be used for children under age 4. for your best Hawaii car rental rates
