Donovan's Reef

Too low to display

We have always liked Donovans Reef which was filmed on the island of Kauai. I was always fascinated with the original white house they used in the film with the cool trees leading up to the house and wanted to find the proper filming location. The house is no longer at the actual filming location and has been replaced by Lae Nani condos. Back in 1963 the house was alone in clear fields lined with many trees along the coast in the Wailua Bay down towards Aleka loop which now has many resorts. The original house still exists, the house was moved. Enjoy.....

OR...you can plug in "Donovans Reef" and just sit back and LET THE WHOLE THING ROLL!!!!! Because from the first moment of the opening credits, when the delightful, infectious musical rendition of "Pupa O Ewa" ("Pearly Shells") cranks up...until the very end of the film...when "Pupa O Ewa" is cranking again...you can just leave your "doldrums" behind.
