Gilligan's island

I read somewhere that there is a beach that Gilligan's island was filmed from on the island. If so, is there anything to see there from the series?

Moloaa Bay is where the original shipwreck scene was. It is at the end of a street in a more residential area with some rental houses as well. Nothing to see from the series. Just the water/bay.

Moloa`a Bay, one of the prettiest on the island and right across the ridge from me. Well worth a stop.

Not at all. Usually very few people, if anyone at all...maybe more locals on weekends.

Be warned that parking is very limited.

Busy? No...we've had it all to ourselves during the week. You need to park up the road and walk. Easy walk.

Moloa'a Bay! Oh that is already on my list for beaches to visit next trip, but not because of the show. It is an interesting bit of trivia that i do plan to spring on my wife when we go there though. Where up the road exactly do you park?

Kelly, public access is at the end of Moloa'a Road, and there are a few parking stalls toward the end of the road.

I know you asked about Kauai.

On Oahu there are a couple of places where "opening" scenes were filmed.

Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor, behind Ilikai Hotel in Waikiki is where the "Minnow" sailed from.

Coconut Island in Kaneohe is the island shown from a distance. Though you cannot get on the island, you can take Lilipuna Rd. It is a loop from Kamehameha Highway. There are a couple of places where you can take pictures of the island.
