Pearl Harbor

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

This comedy has developed quite the cult following over the years. You can see a lot of gorgeous Hawaii local beaches in this movie. The luxury Turtle Bay Resort plays a prominent role in the plot. If you plan to visit Hawaii, you might recognize this luxurious hotel. The film crew spent around 30 days on the North Shore of Oahu capturing everything they needed for the flick.

North Shore

A 1987 cult classic, “North Shore” tells the story of Rick Kane, an Arizona teenager who travels to Oahu’s famous North Shore. He ventures to Hawaii to try his skills in the world of professional surfing but finds he’ll definitely need some help on the way.

Godzilla

While you’re exploring Kualoa Ranch, look out for Godzilla’s footprints! During filming, the 40-ft footprints were dug a few yards deep to increase the depth and showcase the monster’s size. However, after several cattle on the ranch tumbled into these holes, the ranch had to alter the depth. Even though they’re slightly different from the ones in the movie, you can still see these enormous footprints!
