Chinaman's Hat Island
Photograph - Photograph
Mokoliʻi is a basalt island offshore of Kualoa Point, Oahu, Hawaii. It used to be connected to Oahu before erosion cut it off. It is also known as "Chinaman's Hat" for its likeness to the straw hats Chinese immigrants wore.
Mokoliʻi is open to the public from dawn to dusk. It can be accessed by kayak, boat, surfboard, or by swimming; depth soundings are only four feet on its west side. The area is home to stonefish, and sharks are often seen around the island, often in early mornings.
