1. Beach, Kolo, Molokaʻi. Narrow calcareous sand beach that borders Pālāʻau Road. 2. Cliffs camp, Kolo, Molokaʻi. Private campsite on the hillside above the beach that is owned and operated by Molokaʻi Ranch. 3. Wharf, Kolo, Molokaʻi. In 1923, Libby, McNeill and Libby leased some land at Maunaloa from Molokaʻi Ranch and began growing pineapples. The dirt road to Kaunakakai was in poor condition, so they dredged a channel through the reef and built a wharf below Maunaloa at Kaumanamana to service the plantation. The wharf was named Kolo for a nearby gulch because Libby felt that Kolo would be easier to pronounce than Kaumanamana. Kolo Wharf remained the major shipping point for pineapple on the island until the early 1950s when the road to Kaunakakai was improved and shipping operations were moved to Kaunakakai Wharf. Lit., to crawl.
