The Place Known as Kualoa
Established in 1850, Kualoa is a 4,000-acre working cattle ranch, stretching from the steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea. Located on the northeastern side of Oahu in the Hawaiian countryside, it is just 22 miles from Honolulu. The ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys and from beautiful white sand beaches to verdant cliff faces. It is truly a paradise for outdoor recreation with many places accessible only by horseback, on an all-terrain vehicle, or by hiking.
If the views look familiar, it’s because Kualoa has been the site of many television shows and Hollywood films such as Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, Pearl Harbor, Godzilla, Tears of the Sun and 50 First Dates. TV shows including the old and new Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I. and LOST have also been filmed at Kualoa Ranch. It has become known as Hollywood’s “Hawaii Backlot”.
There are two major areas of the property: the northern half which includes Kaʻaʻawa Valley, containing most of the movie locations, and the southern half that includes Hakipuʻu Valley, an 800-year old ancient Hawaiian fishpond, and our own “Secret Island” secluded beach.
Kualoa is one of the most historically significant areas on Oʻahu, and in ancient times, it was one of the most sacred places on the island. Come experience the aloha and special sense of ʻohana (family) that Kualoa employees share.
