“The Arrow” was the second DHARMA station on The Island, and was used as a refuge by the tail-section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 (“The Other 48 Days,” Ep. 2×07). It is located on the grounds of Kualoa Ranch, which is home to many iconic “LOST” locations.
In October 2011, Ed Kos of Kos Tours, Inc. discovered this door and tunnel in Kaaawa at Kualoa Ranch (beneath the right side of the “Kissing Monkeys” rock formation). Former tour driver Matt Morici identified it as “The Arrow,” the second DHARMA station on The Island and a filming location for which he’d been hunting for years.

Judd Memorial Trail was frequently used as a “LOST” filming location, serving as a jungle and stream setting in nearly every season. It was where Mr. Eko met his demise (“The Cost of Living,” Ep. 3×05) and where young Ben met Richard Alpert for the first time (“The Man Behind the Curtain,” Ep. 3×20). Most recently, it was where Jacob attacked the Man in Black (“Across the Sea,” Ep. 6×15). Continue reading Judd Memorial Trail
The broad, majestic Ko’olau mountain ridge seen in a memorable wide shot in the pilot episode (“Pilot,” Ep. 1×01) is viewed from Ka’a’awa Valley, also known as Kualoa Valley. The same view is revisited during the conversation between Jacob and the Man in Black during Season Six (“Ab Aeterno,” Ep. 6×09). The valley contains a number of iconic “LOST” locations. Continue reading Kaaawa Valley
A scenic point approximately halfway up Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, a popular hiking trail and lookout at Makapuu Point (part of the Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline) in East Honolulu, has been used for several “LOST” scenes. First, it was the cliff where Hurley is told by Dave to jump (“Dave,” Ep. 2×18). Secondly, it was where Ben brought Sawyer to show him that he’s on a second island (“Every Man For Himself,” Ep. 3×04). Finally, this is also where the base of The Lighthouse where Jack and Hurley went to meet Jacob (“The Lighthouse,” Ep. 6×05) was built. Continue reading Makapuu Lighthouse Trail
The airfield where Mr. Ekoâ€™s brother Yemi was shot (â€œThe 23rd Psalm,â€ Ep. 2Ã—10) was Dillingham Airfield near Kaena Point. Itâ€™s also where parts of the widebody Oceanic Airlines 747 and Nigerian Beechcraft were stored. Very little of the planes remain as of November 2009. Continue reading Dillingham Airfield
The gas station where Sawyer and Cassidy pulled their jewelry con (â€œThe Long Con,â€ Ep. 2Ã—13) was Waialua Service, formerly Ericâ€™s Expert Service, in Waialua (67-016 Farrington Hwy.). The stationâ€™s actual name and sign (at the time) were actually used in the episode. Continue reading Waialua Service
Mr. Ekoâ€™s Nigerian village (â€œThe 23rd Psalm,â€ Ep. 2Ã—10), and the spot where Sawyer and Cassidy planned their jewelry con (â€œThe Long Con,â€ Ep. 2Ã—13) were all filmed in historic Waialua town, anchored by the former Waialua Sugar Mill. The mill complex is now home to several specialty and industrial retailers. Continue reading Waialua Sugar Mill
The suburban home where Sawyer and Cassidy shacked up (â€œThe Long Con,â€ Ep. 2Ã—13) was played by model homes in Mililani Mauka (Lehiwa Dr.). Specifically, developer Castle & Cookeâ€™s â€œAmerican Classicsâ€ showcase “Residence 2” (living room and entry) and “Residence 6” (bedroom).
These are now private homes that have been restored and sold in the market by a huge value. This house was restored but basically just the exterior so the movie side would still be intact and an impact for the buyer which actually was looking for this house.Â Almost all structural problemsÂ were solvable to some degree, but the more severe will impact on your ability to finance the project and insure the end result, and the exterior was managed by professionals by changing the roofing, the look of the curb appeal with the sidings and with professionals that knowÂ how to install hardie board to make it perfect as it was. Also the garden was renovated as it was a new place.
When it comes to this project, renovation is more akin to restoration than remodelling â€” that is to say, bringing something back to its original state, to reinvigorate and refresh. Remodelling, on the other hand, essentially refers to changing a building, perhaps through altering its layout or extending.
Of course what most owners of old houses end up doing is a combination of the two but with this one the restoration was the keyâ€” returning original features and the bare bones of the property to their former glory whilst playing around with the layout in order to make the house more suitable for modern-day living.

The show has used two homes on this residential street in Waikele. First, the suburban home that Locke inspected for Nadia (â€œLockdown,â€ Ep. 2Ã—17), is 94-1003 Alelo St. Second, almost directly across the street is the home where Locke and Helen lived (“The Substitute,” Ep. 6×04). These are private residences. Continue reading Alelo Street
The stadium where Jack first meets Desmond (â€œMan of Science, Man of Faith,â€ Ep. 2Ã—01), and where we later see Penny track him down (“Live Together, Die Alone, Ep. 2×23), is Aloha Stadium (99-500 Salt Lake Blvd.), the largest sports venue in Hawaii. The stadium was revisited in Season 6, when Desmond tracks down Penny in the flash-sideways (“Happily Ever After,” Ep. 6×11). Continue reading Aloha Stadium
