Location Showcase: Eternity Beach, East Oahu. Part I

Location Showcase: Eternity Beach, East Oahu. Part I Jolene Kaneshige PhotographyLocated on the east side on the island of Oahu, Hawaii and near Halona Lookout is Halona Beach Cove, also known as Eternity Beach. It was named after being featured for the famous kiss in the Academy Award winning movie “From here to eternity,” filmed in 1953. So, if you are a fan of old movies, definitely stop by and give this beach a look! Its natural beauty and ambiance is a sight for sore eyes as words and photos just don’t do it any justice.

Eternity beach can be accessed on the west side of Halona/Blowhole lookout and is a short walk down from the Halona parking lot.

Pro tips:

  1. Remember that while the parking lot and the view from it is wheelchair accessible, the path down is not and can be difficult to manage for people over the age of 65.
  2. There is also no lifeguard on duty at Eternity beach so stay in the shallow areas and be cautious about jumping off the rocks.
  3. My Dad, who has been fishing his entire life, has drilled this bit of wisdom into me “Never turn your back to the ocean. Treat it with the respect it deserves.” Which translates into; be mindful of your surroundings. As a youngin I’ve spent some time at the beach, sometimes not paying attention, which lead to being tossed around like a rag doll by the violently rolling sea. Sand everywhere! Not fun!

As far as destination weddings, surprise engagement proposals, or family portraits go, this is a wonderful hidden gem on Oahu, Hawaii. Not too many people venture here because of the walk, but it’s one of my favorite locations for photography! Your wedding photos will be sure to get a lot of “Oooos,” and “Aahhhss,” as the sky is majestically blue, the ocean is a dark jewel green, the waves crash on the rocks behind you, and everything looks surreal from right out of a movie.
