Chinamans Hat With Tree - Oahu Hawaii
Photograph - Photographs - Photography
Mokolii, commonly known as Chinaman's Hat, is a 12.5-acre, 206-foot-tall basalt island 1⁄3 miles offshore of Kualoa Point, Oahu, in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. Geologically, it used to be connected to Oahu before erosion cut it off. It is known as "Chinaman's Hat" for its likeness to the straw hats Chinese immigrants wore. Wedge-tailed Shearwaters are the only species of bird that nests here.
Mokolii is open to the public from dawn to dusk. On weekends it is somewhat a popular secret with tourists and locals. It can be accessed by kayak, boat, surfboard, or by swimming; depth soundings are only four feet on its west side. This may be dangerous during any other time or inclement weather. The area is home to stonefish, and sharks are often seen around the island, often in early mornings.
