How many visitors are making the trip to the Minnow? We’re trying to guess! It’s not too far, rumor has it you can get there very easily. My professor in college did this amazing chart full of all kinds of drafts. No Gilligan though. Oh...More

Gorgeous beach, relaxing waves, ugly ghost crabs, pretty reefs. Loved it. Standing in the exact area where the SS MINNOW was beached, also the day JFK was shot, was chilling. Try to imagine the pilot was shot here before there was any real estate, with...More

Had to go see where Gilligan's Island started. As others have said you have about a 1/4 mile walk to get there. The beach was nice. Sand meets water on Hawaii, what's wrong with that? Perhaps the only useful part of this review is "buy...More

So this is the Lagoon that Gillian’s island was filmed on. It was nice, there is a hike off the side path that takes you by the cliffs, easy to moderate depending on your skill. The beach was not crowded, it’s just said the amount...More

Only a few miles off the main highway on a paved road. At the end of the road there are some houses and a small lot for parking, then it's about a few hundred feet to the beach sign then stepping on a few rocks...More

A beautiful inlet beach perfect for taking in a day on Kauai. Not littered as a previous review states but plenty of natural drift wood and coconuts along the shore. Watch for the small ghost crabs darting around into their little holes. Gilligans Island was...More

Moloa'a is the beach where Gilligan's Island was originally filmed. Now there are homes along the waterfront, but there is still access to the beach. Parking is the major problem as there is only enough room to park about 8 cars, then you walk about...More

Another site we wanted to try. Very nice quite beach but there was allot of litter on the beach. Needs to be cleaned up but overall very enjoyable. Nice little place to snorkel on the south east corner.
