Best of Hawaii
Hawaii is filled with natural beauty throughout the islands. It hosts some of the world’s tallest sea cliffs, most breathtaking waterfalls and rainforests that protect endangered species. One of the destination’s biggest sights (literally) is one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea, located in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii Island. The stunning volcano produces 250,000-650,000 cubic yards of lava per day!
Filming in Hawaii
Because of the lush mountains and gorgeous beaches, many popular movies have been filmed on Oahu and Kauai over the past few decades including, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pearl Harbor, Blue Crush, Six Days Seven Nights, Soul Surfer and many more! The rugged beauty and secluded areas of these islands make Hawaii a prime location for directors.
If nothing else, Hawaii is known for its world-famous beaches. Depending on the island, the beaches of Hawaii range from crowded and lively to secluded and serene (and everything in between). Plus, the colors of the beaches are incredible - white, black, red, green. While relaxing on the beach, it’s likely to catch a surfer riding the waves. Oahu, Hawaii’s North Shore is known as the “surfing capital of the world,” hosting some of the largest surfing competitions.
