Pirates Movie Filmed on Na Pali Coast

Sea cave on a beach

Na Pali Coast is a Pirates Paradise!

Kauai is known for it’s beautiful landscapes in nature and is every filmmakers dream backdrop for their movies. Na Pali Coast has been used for many major Hollywood productions including Tropic Thunder, King Kong, Six Days Seven Nights, and our favorite, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Our favorite scene features our favorite landmark on our favorite private beach on the coast, the spectacular Honopu Arch, on Honopu Beach.

The beach is inaccessible by land; the film crew and talent arrived on set by helicopter and boat, but you can get an up close view of the beach on our Na Pali Coast Raft Tour.

Check out this behind the scenes clip of the making of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
