Mokoli'i is a small basalt islet and lies one-third mile off of Kualoa Point. This islet got separated from the Oahu's basaltic ridge due to marine erosion. It is also referred to as Chinaman's Hat because of its similarity with the Asian conical hat. The land was home to many tropical species; however, the invasive non-native species affected the wildlife and plants. The island was a private property until 1970. The island today is owned by Honolulu city and is accessible to visitors. You can experience the thrill of kayaking, canoeing, or surfing here.
