Off the beaten path lies a little sanctuary we like to call “the hole” or “cave.” It’s a man made tunnel under neath a patch of East coast highway; specifically Kalanianaole Highway. Using my googlefu, I’m unable to find actual information about this tunnel (if you are able to find out more, leave a comment below!). It’s very, VERY accessible. While there, we saw a pregnant woman in a nice dress (we’re talking about second trimester bridging into the third trimester – pregnant). Hopefully this encourages any of you that may deem it too risky. We also took Bear and Landon here; no harm done.
Entrance of the cave. Tiny hole in the wall!Landon in awe as he on-looks the massive swells dominating the coastline.
Upon reaching the other side, the waves were highly turbulent due to the passing hurricanes (passed North of Oahu). Don’t let the photos fool you! The waves were at around ten feet as they crashed into the island. The bottom area rarely has water flooding in and is a comfortable place to relax, take pictures, and have a picnic.
This is as close as we wanted to go and lucky for us, we stayed put with no slips or injuries. However, never underestimate the ocean! Freak sets/waves happen all the time.
