Kualoa Ranch on Oahu
On Oahu’s Windward Coast, the island has a drastically different feel than in the city. Gone are the busy streets and concrete jungle, replaced with lush mountains, 2 lane roads, and a significantly different feel, one that many visitors are looking for while visiting the island. And on this side of the island are some of the most amazing beaches and sites that you can imagine. Places like Lanikai Beach, the Byodo-In Temple, and the fun-filled Kualoa Ranch.
Just a short drive from the Pali Lookout, Oahu’s Kualoa Ranch has a long history, dating all the way back to ancient Hawaii. The surrounding valley is a sacred site, dating back to the 13th century, with many ceremonies and a variety of King’s using the site for hundreds of years. The beauty of the Kualoa Valley is apparent everywhere you look, and offers a panoramic view of the island’s coastline, overlooking Chinaman’s Hat Island, situated close by. The valley is so vital to the history of Hawaii, that it is believed to be the first place in Hawaii that the Taro plant grew.
Today, the 4,000-acre Kualoa Ranch is a popular destination for visitors and locals, hosting everything from weddings to birthday parties, and offering great activity options that show off the diversity of the area, and bring to life the many uses of the valley over the years.
One of the most notable facts about the Kualoa Ranch is that the mountains, valley, and structures have been used in many films and television shows. The untouched landscapes provide a perfect backdrop for amazing scenes like the well-known dinosaur stampede in Jurassic Park, or the opening scene for the current Hawaii 5-0. And, you can actually stand inside Godzilla’s footprint during a visit to the ranch!
