    What is the water and air temperatures in Molokini island in the winter? Can I swim there with my little child?

      Hawaii weather is good all year round.
      But Molokini island seems to be not the best place for little child because of rocky shores. Hawaii has a lot of other places to visit with little children. Kaanapali beach for example.
