If you’re thinking it’s time to eat, it definitely is. Molokai has some delicious restaurants you must try (even if it’s just to hide out from the rain outside.) In the mood for a burger? Hide away at Molokai Burger, because who can resist a burger with some fries? Burgers not your thing? A Taste of Molokai is a food truck that brings great Hawaiian flavor to each dish. The picnic benches nearby do have umbrellas, but you can take your food back to the hotel if you still want big flavor without all the rain. If those don’t sound like your flavor, try out the Hula Bean Cafe or the Kanemitsu Bakery for some great morning treats.

Get Your Education on at a Museum

It’s raining, why not go learn about the culture and history of the island you’re staying on? Head to the Molokai Museum and Cultural Center to educate yourself about the island. Since you can’t enjoy outdoor activities, it only makes sense to learn more about the place you came to visit in the first place. Spend your day learning about Molokai history and how it got to be where it is today. You’ll find that a day of learning is a great way to spend the day.

Shop Your Heart Out

You’ll definitely want to head over to Kahana Gateway to get a little shopping done. With tons of local stores and mall activities, you’ll find yourself spending hours at this shopping center. Get snorkel gear at Snorkel Bob’s and await the next sunny day, pamper yourself at Smile Nail Salon & Massage, indulge yourself with caffeine at Hawaiian Village Coffee. There are so many different types of stores that you won’t be able to stay away, even on the better weather days.

Treat Yourself to a Spa Day

You’re on vacation to relax, and spas let you do just that. If you’ve been heavily stressed or anxious, Molokai Acupuncture & Massage offer services like treatment by acupuncture, massage, and yoga to help relieve your ailments. If this spot is booked up, don’t worry! In Kualapuu, there is Molokai Massage. With herbal remedies, aromatherapy, nature walks, and more — you will find yourself feeling lighter than ever as you leave this establishment. Any spa you head to, you’ll instantly forget the gloom rain outside.

It’s vacation, don’t let a little sprinkle ruin all of the fun you had planned. Instead, make new plans and still have all the fun you were wishing for. Pamper yourself, learn about the history of the island, and get to know all of the ins and outs of Molokai. Even in the rain, you won’t forget these experiences being all truly magical.
