This aerial image shows the portion of southeast Molokaʻi coast from ‘Ualapu‘e (left) to Honomuni (upper right). East of this area marks the end of the fringing reef as it nears closer and closer to the coast, eventually pinching out near Honouli Wai Bay (not shown on image). The tri-lobe-shaped feature in the center of the coast is Pūko‘o Harbor. A once thriving fishpond that was dredged and reshaped by fill, the harbor was created along with plans for a resort (which was never constructed). The calm waters of Pūko‘o Harbor are now home to an aquaculture venture.
