"South Pacific" movie beaches

OK, does anybody know if there are guides to where they filmed "South Pacific?" I heard it was near Princeville, and that you can also visit the terrace where Emile and Nellie Forbush sat w/ the kids.

And are they good beaches to swim/snorkel? (I know, maybe not in January).

Princeville, Hawaii

No real intent other than to clear up a post that was not entirely accurate. I Googled South Pacific movie locations and this apparently quite old post came up. I enjoyed the waterfalls 29 years ago and was merely passing along information I got from my waiter at dinner last night. Incidentally, the waterfall was one of my favorite activities during my stay.

Voodoo Island, hehehehe......Boris Karloff running around the Coco Palms. That's the lobby of the Coco Palms in the opening scenes (NO, I don't remember it, I read it)

Thanks for the chuckle Caddy!

Hi Pinky,

I shall try to get a copy of that film next week.

It might put me out of my dilema with the effect

of a mental implosion...Sounds diabolical at best.

My phone company is Voda phone so they

might have something in common??.

If you cannot be good then be careful.. NWF.

We're going to be doing this movie tour when we visit in June. Here's a link in case anyone is interested. I've heard very positive reviews. South Pacific, of course, is just a small part of the tour and just one of the movies mentioned. I hear they show movie clips in the Van before stops to see the actual filming locations.
