What used to be the beach portion of (for a short time) a posh eco camp site that Molokai Ranch (who happens to own quite a bit of the best land that there is on Molokai) had built circa 1990s I'm not exactly sure how long the eco camp was open-maybe a decade. I'm not sure, as I can't seem to find the exact dates. Anyway, it is now an abandoned site which seems to be the pattern that Molokai Ranch has had. The company has always been owned by entities that are not from Molokai and often overseas. They build and develop beautiful things only to abandon them abruptly-perhaps for political reasons or a business decision that they wanted somewhere to lose money. Who knows. One can only speculate, but it sure defies logic! The lodge they had built in 2000 was gorgeous. A huge endeavor. I don't think it was around for even a decade before they shut it down. I've heard talk for the past couple of years that they want to open up the lodge again and that certainly would be nice, but I can also understand everyone's skepticism when they hear this rhetoric.
