Kamalō Harbor offers good protection from W to N winds. The soft gray mud bottom has good holding quality. The harbor is used by small boats, but seldom by larger vessels. The swell is not felt within the harbor.
Water, fuel, and supplies are available in the village.
Kamalō Harbor 5 miles SW of Pūko’o Harbor, is the E of two pockets opening S in the reef at the most S point on Moloka’i. The harbor, excluding the entrance, is about 150 yards wide, and extends more than 0.5 mile into the reef.
The entrance to the harbor is through a break in an outer reef. The outer reef has general depths of 1 to 6 feet and the entrance through the break has a least depth of 11 feet. A lighted buoy is off the entrance. The coral reef marking the limits of deep water within the harbor usually are easily seen by day.
The village of Kamalō consists of a few houses at the mouth of a gulch back of the harbor. The ruins of an old wharf are at the head of the harbor and an A-frame house is visible from seaward.
