Kualoa, a 400-acre nature preserve and cattle ranch located on the island of Oahu, is one of the most famous movie filming locations in the world. Ka’a’awa Valley has frequently been called “Hollywood’s Hawaii backlot,” as many popular movies such as Godzilla, Jurassic Park, 50 First Dates and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle have been filmed in the area. Check out the official Hollywood Movie Site Tour for a backstage look at some of your favorite movies.
A variety of other island tours are also available. Try your hand at kayaking during a two-hour excursion on the sparkling blue waters of Kaneohe Bay. If watersports aren’t your area of expertise, ATV, horseback and trolley tours are other exciting options.
