Kaunakakai Harbor is used for cargo, recreation and commercial uses therefore the
port authority is shared by the Dept. of Transportation - Harbors Division and the
DLNR's Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation.
The town was made famous in the 1930s by the song "The Cockeyed Mayor of
Kaunakakai", beginning an ongoing tradition of designating an honorary mayor.
In the mid-1800s, King Kamehameha V sometimes spent his summers on Molokai at a
home in Kaunakakai. The main street of Kaunakakai, Ala Malama Avenue, was
named after the king's summer home.
