Over the years, many directors have chosen to shoot key scenes or even have entire movies filmed on Kauai, the tropical paradise we are fortunate to call home. This makes a lot of sense, as our beautiful island is known worldwide for our beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets and breathtaking valleys.
Kauai is a fantastic destination for your vacation, with plenty of options for exploring lush canyons, relaxing on gorgeous beaches or simply taking in the tropical sites on a drive around the island. Directors of films and TV shows know this, and have used the visual impact of Kauai’s natural beauty to set the stage for a number of motion pictures.
Beginning in the 1930s and continuing through recent blockbusters, scores of directors have chosen to have their movies filmed on Kauai. When scripts call for a tropical paradise, a beautifully remote location or a romantic rendezvous on a sandy beach, Kauai has been the obvious choice over and over again.
