Papillon – Maui

The classic film Papillon arguably one of Steve McQueen’s best movies. In it, he plays Henri "Papillon" Charrière, who was sentenced to prison on Devil’s Island, located off the coast of French Guiana, for a crime he did not commit. The movie was shot in various locations, including Jamaica, however Steve McQueen’s famous cliff-jumping scene in the end was shot on the North Shore of the Hawaiian island of Maui. Interestingly, Steve McQueen did the stunt himself! Allegedly, he said the jump was, "one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life." Well, there is plenty of fun to be had on Maui besides cliff-jumping. Exotic Estates vacation rentals on the North Shore of Maui, and elsewhere, offer plenty of creature comforts and are in a variety of locations.
