This timeless documentary film chronicles the evolution of a small beachside community, from ancient spiritual haven to playground for Hawaii’s royalty, to one of the world’s most famous destinations.  Hosted by one of Hawaii’s iconic musicians Keola Beamer Sr., scenes include special moments with Don Ho, Robert Cazimero, Mo Keale, Shirely Temple, real beachboys and beach girls who contributed to the sustaining the magic of this famous and beloved beach.

The national premiere was hosted in Washington D.C. at the National Geographic Society, and the Hawaii premiere was held on Waikiki beach, under a full moon to an audience of 5,000 viewers, setting the venue for what became Honolulu’s “Sunset on the Beach” – the public movie screening venue in Waikiki.
