Molokai North Shore

The spectacular north shore of Molokai was created during one of the largest landslides known on Earth, with a large part of the island calving off and sliding into the ocean, creating sheer sea cliffs.

 

Huelo islet, the smaller islet on the left, is home to the last native loulu palm (Pritchardia) forest in Hawaii, as the island has no rats. It's also home to numerous seabirds that come crashing through the palm canopy at night to nest.
