Pālā‘au State Park (Kalaupapa Lookout)

Kalaupapa Lookout Molokai

The lookout provides a scenic overview of Kalaupapa, a special community where Hansen’s disease patients were sent to live in isolation from 1866 until 1969. The community was once home to Saint Damien, a Belgian missionary. In 1873, Father Damien chose to leave the "outside world" to care for Hawaii's Hansen's disease victims who were exiled to this isolated peninsula.

Location: End of Kalae Hwy. (Hwy. 47), Pālā‘au.
