Mokoli’i, commonly known as Chinaman’s hat, means ‘little lizard’. According to Hawaiian mythology, the island is the remains of a giant lizard’s or dragon’s tail that was chopped off and tossed into the ocean by a goddess. Today, Chinaman’s hat is part of the 157 acre Kualoa Regional Park. Besides being home to very important Oahu wildlife, this little island has also been the set and backdrop for many blockbuster movies like Jumanji and Pirates of the Caribbean. Our Ohana Circle island tour visitors will also enjoy posing with the island at a distance, lining up underneath it in order to make it look like an actual hat! Boasting movie scenes from Jurassic Park, Kualoa Ranch can also be seen in the backdrop.
