Pukoo Beach consists of two beaches with the one on the east having clear blue water and a sandy seafloor, while the water at the western beach is sometimes a bit cloudy. A coral reef offshore provides good snorkeling opportunities.
Swimming and snorkeling are good here when the sea is calm.
Scenic views of the surrounding seacoast make secluded Pukoo Beach one of Molokai’s most enjoyable beaches. This is a great place for a picnic as you gaze at the harbor and the beautiful Molokai coastline.
