Kualoa and Kualoa Ranch
Kualoa is a 4,000-acre working cattle ranch, 45 minutes from Honolulu. The ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys and from beautiful white sand beaches to mountain and cliff faces. This is an ideal location for die-hard outdoor recreation minded people with many places accessible only by horseback, on an all-terrain vehicle, or by hiking.
Kualoa has been the site of many Hollywood films such as Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, Pearl Harbor, Godzilla, Tears of the Sun and 50 First Dates. It is also the location shoot for some old and new television (TV) shows such as Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I. and Lost
