The Descendants Oscar Nominations – Kauai Movie Tours

The Descendants Movie Locations

Congratulations to George Clooney, Alexander Payne and The Descendants for their Oscar Nominations for Best Actor, Best Director, Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.  In honor of the nominations I have attached some additional photos of one the most beautiful beaches in the world, Hanalei Bay.

The breathtaking beauty of Hanalei Bay was captured in the Oscar Nominated film, The Descendants.

Hanalei Pier was originally built in 1892 to help Hanalei farmers forward their taro crops to market.  It was a Kauai film location for the 1957 film, South Pacific.

Hanalei Bay is a popular beach for surfing.  I even caught a few waves last time I was there.
