Kualoa Ranch

Kualoa Ranch Review

Encompassing 4,000 acres, about 45 minutes by car from Waikiki, this working ranch offers a wide range of activities—from ATV and horseback tours to hula lessons or jungle expeditions in six-wheel-drive vehicles. The mountains, which serve as the backdrop of this scenic ranch, may seem familiar as the ranch has served as the set for movies such as Jurassic Park and Wind Talkers, and TV shows like Magnum PI and Lost (and you can take a movie sites tour). From the grounds, you'll have a wonderful view of the ocean and Chinaman's Hat. You can drop by the visitor center anytime, but it's best to book activities and tours 2 or 3 days in advance.
