There is no need to be a big film buff to know the saga that today will reveal us the beautiful places where it was filmed. This is the saga Jurassic Park that has captivated both children and adults since it began to roar in 1993.
Adventures and dinosaurs of this film are not the only attraction. The spectacular places where the story unfolds arouse the interest of tourists in search of paradisiacal landscapes. If you want to have a movie-like holiday, pay attention to the following information. Today we look at the places where the first film of the saga was filmed "Jurassic Park" and the last one: "Jurassic World". Hawaii was the chosen place. To be exact, two islands of the archipelago are the protagonists. The islands Oahu and Kauai.
Oahu is the third largest city in Hawaii and the one with more population. There we find the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu. It offers a variety of landscapes and activities through its biodiversity. From spectacular beaches and waterfalls to valleys nestled between its two famous volcanoes, Wai'anae and Ko'olau. Some of the main attractions of the island are Waikiki Beach, located on the south coast, where you can enjoy surfing or relaxing in one of the best beaches in the archipelago. Diamond Head is another place that takes your breath away, there you will find a panoramic view of the island of Oahu.
The island of Kauai, Oahu’s twin, is not less beautiful. It is the least developed commercially in the archipelago, which makes it ideal for those seeking tranquility, nature or just an idyllic and original place to enjoy an unforgettable holiday. Its 60 beaches, lapped by the Pacific Ocean, leave no one indifferent. You can also enjoy breathtaking waterfalls and state parks with beautiful landscapes, hence it is known as "Garden Island".
Something you can not miss is the Waimea Canyon, where you will see the beautiful and famous waterfall of the film, with a drop of 900 metres. You surely remember the scene where the helicopter approaches the island, between amazing mountains full of vegetation and suddenly, that imposing waterfall. An unforgettable image that will stay fixed in your retina, since it is much more shocking than in the movie.
In fact, its beauty has attracted many filmmakers; not only Jurassic Park and Jurassic World were shot there. It was also the location for films like "Blue Hawaii", the famous movie with Elvis Presley, "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark" or inspiration for the Disney animated film "Lilo and Stitch".
