    Visit Gilligan's Island

    Moloa'a Bay, was the location for the pilot episode of Gilligan's Island.
    For anyone who's early years were spent watching this sitcom, you might just find it of interest.
    It's also a very nice beach, located between Kilauea and Anahola, down Koolau Road, it's easy to miss the tiny street sign if your not careful.

    (Tip from: The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook) It's a wonderful beach on calm days. The right (southeast) side is much nicer than the northwest side. Very pretty beach, but not a great swimming beach when seas aren't calm. It's off the main highway and not as well known as other beaches. Take the first (southeastern) Ko'olau Road (before the 17 mile marker) to Moloa'a Road.
    The public access is near the end of Moloa'a Road. Parking is very limited. Park where there are no NO PARKING signs to dissuade you. You might have to walk a ways to the beach, but it's worth it. To get to the southeast side, you'll have to walk 100 yards along the beach. There you'll find the wading, swimming and boogie boarding the best, and shade is plentiful. Some residents lost access to their nearby houses when the tiny bridge to their neighborhood collapsed in the late '90s. Rather than make them wait years while county agencies squabbled over jurisdiction, the military base on the west side sent a dozen Navy Seabees to build them a new one in one day using donated materials.
