We’ve said time and time again that the magic of Molokai comes from the aloha spirit and authenticity of the island. Molokai is called the most authentic island, and the friendliest – and we don’t take those accolades lightly! For generations, the dedication to maintaining Hawaiian traditions and embracing each other with kindness has been the foundation of our home, and the restaurants and stores here reflect it.
Big Wind Kite Factory has been around for decades, and is one of the most colorful stores you’ll ever see! With beautiful handmade kites (as well as some other island staples, like boogie boards and surfboards), you’ll be mesmerized from the moment you set eyes on it! Kites range from “standard” shapes and colors for you to fly, to beautiful rainbow spirals designed to decorate trees and doorways.
In recent years, they’ve taken to Etsy to sell their beautiful creations across the world! With nearly 700 happy customers and a 5-star rating, it’s easy to see that their kites and kindness are spreading joy. This recent review says it all – “Second one we ordered – beautiful and great quality! Makes us feel like we are in Hawaii again!”
After 41 years on the island, Big Wind Kite Factory is still going strong. Be sure to stop by on your travels and enjoy!
